United Kingdom deploys army following poisoning of ex-Russian spy

The March 4 attack on Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, southwest England, is being treated as attempted murder. "People have been so kind and he has expressed that he will never forget that kindness".

"We have to give the police all the space they need in order to collect all the information, to secure and to be able to be absolutely clear that there is no further risk", Rudd said. "At the moment, our priority is going to be the incident, which is why I'm here".

In addition to his home and vehicle, police have cordoned off the cemetery where Skripal's wife is buried as well as The Mill pub in Salisbury.

The national counter-terror policing network, which is leading the probe, said it had requested help to remove "a number of vehicles and objects from the scene in Salisbury town centre as they have the necessary capability and expertise". Officials did not immediately explain how the others might have been exposed to the substance.

If a Moscow link were proved, it would plunge relations between the West and Russian Federation to a new low, and would call into question the British government's ability to protect residents of the United Kingdom at home. Made suspect by a tweet from the embassy "He was actually a British spy, working for Mi6" despite this it seems unlikely that the assassination attempt of an unknown spy would cause patriotic passions to rise.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov dismissed Britain's warnings of retaliation were propaganda and not serious.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Moscow was "ready to consider" lending a hand in any investigation, "whether it's [about] poisoning of some British subjects, whether it's rumors about interference in the USA election campaign".

The incident has been likened to the case of former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko, a critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who died in London in 2006 after drinking green tea laced with radioactive polonium-210.

Kremlin foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters the story "was straight away used to boost an anti-Russian campaign in the media".

Blair's remarks on BBC Radio suggested Det. However, he cautioned against rushing to judgment on who is responsible.

Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said the armed forces "have the right people with the right skills" to deal with the "crucial inquiry".

On Friday, John Glen, a member of Parliament for Salisbury, praised the calm response of the city's residents to "an unprecedented occurrence in our country's history" but acknowledged that some were demanding "decisive action". "Every statement we can take is important".

"The government will not be acting precipitously in response to what has happened".

"We have not heard a single fact; we only watch footage on TV, where our colleagues say with serious faces and with gusto that if it is Russian Federation, then a response will follow that Russian Federation will remember forever", he said, according to Interfax.
