Global leaders, including Canada, issue statement backing United Kingdom spy claims

Global leaders, including Canada, issue statement backing United Kingdom spy claims

In the second incident, Dawn Sturgess, 44, and her partner Charlie Rowley, 48, were exposed to the same nerve agent used in Salisbury.

Both of the Skripals survived, but in what police call a tragic effect of the attack, Dawn Sturgess, a 44-year-old mother of three, died on July 8 after being exposed to the same nerve agent. The Skripals have recovered, but are keeping a low profile.

The Crown Prosecution Service said the men, who entered the United Kingdom under the names Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, are being charged in absentia with conspiracy to murder, attempted murder and use of the nerve agent Novichok.

Authorities issued a European arrest warrant for two men named as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, both aged around 40. He warned, however, that "it is likely that they were travelling under aliases and that these are not their real names".

Police say they have not received reports of anyone who has stayed in the same room since falling ill, adding anyone who had been exposed would have experienced symptoms within 12 hours.

The suspects' passports give their names as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, though police believe the names were fake.

The Kremlin has denied it played any role in the poisoning.

The US ambassador to London, Woody Johnson, and the Australian government have also offered their support for Britain's stance against Russian Federation.

"In total, something like 150 undeclared Russian intelligence officers were expelled from Western countries". The new details from police outline a brief global trip by the two suspects, who landed at the Gatwick airport from Moscow on March 2.

They returned to London and went back to Bow.

They then travelled on London public transport to Waterloo station and were in the area between approximately 6pm and 7pm.

Captain Marvel first look: Brie Larson is the new Marvel superhero
As any Marvel comics fan knows, the Skrulls are especially risky due to their unparalleled ability to shape-shift. Most notably, Captain Marvel brings back Nick Fury back-but in a major change, he actually has both of his eyes.

This Concept Video Shows How The Now iPhones Will Look Like
It's said to have a giant 6.5-inch display, so the "Max" moniker is fitting for what will be Apple's largest smartphone. Since it was nowhere to be found following Apple's accidental leak, hopefully this new video will help fill the void.

He said the pair flew into London's Gatwick Airport from Moscow two days before the Salisbury attack, on Friday, March 2, and stayed at a hotel in the east of the capital. They arrived by train in Salisbury at 11.48am on March 4 and left the same way shortly before 2pm.

CCTV shows them in the vicinity of Mr Skripal's house and we believe that they contaminated the front door with Novichok.

Britain has previously pointed the finger at Moscow for the March 4 attack, sparking furious denials.

The motive for attacking Skripal, who was exchanged in a Kremlin-approved spy swap in 2010, is still unclear, as is the motive for using an exotic nerve agent, Novichok, which has such clear links to Russia's Soviet past. May made the assertion in parliament today.

They said Russian operatives made it look like perfume by luxury brand Nina Ricci.

"The so-called nefarious "Russian state operatives" have apparently conquered time and space", the caption read.

May's comments can be viewed on YouTube.

British Security Minister Ben Wallace said Putin bore ultimate responsibility for the poisoning. "They were behind a violent attempted coup in Montenegro".

Russian officials have been vehemently denying the fresh accusations.

Earlier on Wednesday, as word leaked out that the British prime minister might be making a statement related to the nerve agent attack, the Russian foreign ministry responded by posting a satirical video on its official Twitter and Facebook accounts, which compared May's awkward dancing on a recent trip to Africa with Zakharova's own ability on the dancefloor.
