Telegraph reported a third suspect from GRU poisoning Skrobala

A counter-terrorism unit of the British police has established the identity of the third suspect of involvement in the poisoning of former GRU officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia in Salisbury. This is with reference to sources reported by the newspaper The Telegraph.


How do you think the British government, the agent of the GRU, visited Salisbury to develop a plan of attack before his colleagues brought in the UK chemical warfare agent. The newspaper notes that British investigators know the name of the third suspect, but his name is still kept secret.

Previously London called suspects in the assassination Skrobala Russians under the names “Ruslan Bashirov” and “Alexander Petrov”. British intelligence agencies believe their GRU. Later, The Insider, and Bellingcat said that he had found someone similar to Bashirova, among the graduates of the far Eastern higher military command school (DOCU). This man, according to them, name is Anatoly Chapiha, he is a GRU Colonel, has the title of Hero of Russia was born in the village of Nikolaevka of the Amur region. The BBC Russian service reported that confirmed this information, having studied some Russian databases, obtained from anonymous sources.

Official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova called spreading this information. In her opinion, the publication is a continuation of the campaign to divert attention from what happened in Salisbury. The Telegraph, in turn, said that Petrov’s name is really Alexander, and the nickname is just his last name.
