Third man named by police in Salisbury poisonings

UK police have accused a third Russian man of involvement in the 2018 Salisbury poisonings, which left three people critically ill and one dead.

Prosecutors have authorized charges against Denis Sergeev in the Novichok attack on former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

Police also confirmed they believe the suspects in the case belonged to a Russian military intelligence team.

Security sources believe Sergeev acted as the on-the-ground commander for the operation and was the senior member of the team from Russia’s GRU.

The suspects are yet to be arrested
