Third suspect identified in Novichok poisoning of Skripals in Salisbury

1 Share

A THIRD person understood to have helped two Russian men carry out the lethal Salisbury nerve agent poisoning has been identified by counter-terrorism police.

The Telegraph is reporting that the GRU agent helped plan the attack on former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal in the small English town earlier this year.

It comes after one of the men, who was previously identified as Ruslan Boshirov, was outed earlier this week as decorated Russian intelligence officer Anatoliy Vladimirovich Chepiga.

Chepiga was previously made a Hero of the Russian Federation by President Vladimir Putin.

His accomplice — Alexander Petrov — is understood to have also entered the UK on a fake surname.

The Telegraph is reporting that the third accomplice provided information to the Skripals, whose Novichok nerve agent inadvertently killed local woman Dawn Sturgess and critically injured Colonel Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March.

British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said he believed the Russians tried to kill Colonel Skripal because they thought the attack could be successfully pulled off following the poisoning of Alexander Litvinenko in London in 2005.

“That’s why Theresa May’s reaction this time has been very different,” Mr Hunt told Sky News.

The third person is likely to have told the Skripals about which door their target used at the property and the layout of the cul-de-sac.

Security experts say the intel would have been essential as such an attack would not have been unplanned.

The Telegraph has reported that Sergei Migdal, a security expert and former police and intelligence officer, said, “Someone would have had to carry out a reconnaissance mission beforehand.”

“I understand that it was timed for Yulia’s arrival as they wanted to be sure that their target would be in Salisbury. It would have been too much trouble to watch him all the time and that may have aroused suspicion.”

Colonel Skripal and his daughter survived the attack and are understood to be in hiding.

Former intelligence and security officer Philip Ingram said there was “almost certainly” intelligence on the ground.

“They wouldn’t have turned up at the house and put it on the door handle on a whim.”

Novichok assassin’s former Russian army chief comes forward to admit he was military trained, but not for spy missions

  • One of the agents accused over Salisbury attack was outed as a GRU colonel
  • Pictures show striking similarities between Anatoly Chepiga and ‘Boshirov’
  • But Kremlin has attempted to spread that assassin is decorated Russian agent
  • Chepiga’s former commander today insisted the soldier wasn’t trained to spy

The former commander of the Russian assassin accused of carrying out the Salisbury novichok attack has admitted he was military trained, but not for spy missions.

The Kremlin’s media machine has gone into overdrive since investigators revealed one of the two Russians behind the attack is a Colonel Anatoly Chepiga – a high ranking GRU officer who was made a ‘Hero of Russia‘ for missions in Chechnya and Ukraine.

Pictures released this week show Chepiga – who used the name ‘Ruslan Boshirov’ during his murder mission to Salisbury – with his military unit and in his younger years.

An online investigations group has published what it says is the real identity of one of the prime suspects in the Salisbury nerve agent attack. BellThe Salisbury poisoning suspect previously known as Ruslan Boshirov (left) was this week identified as GRU colonel Anatoly Chepiga

‘Boshirov’ previously appeared on TV claiming he and his partner Alexander Petrov were merely nutritional supplement salesmen visiting Salisbury to see the city’s ‘123 -metre’ cathedral spire.

As Putin’s regime continues to refute the claims it was behind the attack, Chepiga’s former commander commented on the case today.

Alexander Borzhko claimed he worked with Chepiga when he was cadet and he wasn’t prepared for overseas assassinations.

He told Russia’s RIA news agency: ‘In 2001, I released a cadet named Chepiga… the military officers were trained in the BTWC [Eastern Military Command College] to carry out combat missions, Chepiga really fought in Chechnya, but he was not prepared for the agency activities.’

He accused the British of ‘schizophrenia’ over the Skripal case, and joked that he would need ‘plastic surgery’ if he was to be added to the suspect list.

His comments came as Putin’s spokesman also attempted to pour cold water on reports of Boshirov’s true identity.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: ‘We don’t know to what extent we can make any formal conclusions about who looks like whom, are they alike, where they lived, where they grew up.

‘On Red Square there are still 10 Stalins and 15 Lenins running around, and they look remarkably like the originals,’ he added, referring to people who dress up as Soviet leaders to pose for photographs with tourists.

UK authorities believe two Russians, using the aliases Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, smeared the highly toxic Novichok chemical on a door handle at the Wiltshire home of former GRU officer Mr Skripal on March 4.

The attack left Mr Skripal and his daughter critically ill, and Dawn Sturgess, 44, who was later exposed to the same nerve agent, died in July.

On Wednesday, the investigative group Bellingcat identified one of the suspects as Chepiga.

Bellingcat said it had identified Chepiga, who travelled to the UK with a passport issued in the assumed name of Ruslan Boshirov, by trawling through online records from Russian military academies.

British officials allege the attack on the Skripals received approval ‘at a senior level of the Russian state,’ an accusation Moscow has fiercely denied.

After ‘Boshirov’ and his accomplice, ‘Alexander Petrov’, were charged this month, Putin said they were civilians.

The pair then appeared on Russia’s state-funded RT channel, saying they visited Salisbury as tourists and had nothing to do with the poisoning.

The niece of poisoned Sergei Skripal fears she was the subject of an assassination bid when the front left wheel spun off her car as she and her husband drove to Moscow this week.

Viktoria Spripal spoke today of a ‘serious crash’ as she was driving to take part in a TV programme on the two men who allegedly planted nerve agent novichok on her uncle.

Their Chevrolet crashed into the barrier on the highway on Wednesday, she said.

‘I think it could have been an assassination attempt,’ she told Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper.

‘My husband checked wheel balancing, wheels and suspension in a service one week ago when I was last going to a TV show in Moscow.

‘After that the car was parked in its usual place, in the yard of our block of flats. There are no cameras around.’

Viktoria claimed the crash could be linked to her criticisms of Western claims that the GRU military intelligence service was behind the poisoning of her uncle, according to Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper.

Here we reveal his true identity, what his involvement was, and what his background is

RUSLAN Boshirov is one of the men suspected of poisoning Sergei Skripal – but what is his real name?

Here we reveal his true identity, what his involvement was, and what his background is.

Who is Salisbury poisoning suspect Ruslan Boshirov?

Ruslan Boshirov is an alleged Russian GRU agent suspected of poisoning Sergei Skripal.

His real name is reportedly Colonel Anatoliy Chepiga, a 39-year-old soldier who served in both Chechnya and Ukraine.

A former Russian officer told Bellingcat that Chepiga’s high rank suggested the Novichok hit was ordered “at the highest level”.

Using leaked Russian military databases, the Bellingcat team found a passport application which confirmed his identity.

They were filmed “moments before” the botched hit on March 4 and left the country hours later in a flight out of Heathrow, cops said.

What was his involvement in the Salisbury attack?

Incredible CCTV footage shows Petrov and Boshirov/Chepiga smiling as they stroll through the city on the day of the Sergei Skripal attack.

The breakthrough in the Skripal case came after cops collected 4,000 hours of CCTV and 2,300 exhibits since the near-fatal poisoning of ex-KGB spy Skripal, 66, and Yulia, 33, in Salisbury in March.

Novichok was smeared on the door handle of the ex-KGB spy.

The nerve agent was later found in a discarded perfume bottle that Charlie Rowley gave to his girlfriend Dawn Sturgess as a present.

UK police found traces of Novichok in the hotel room in which Petrov and Boshirov stayed for two nights.

Sergei and daughter Yulia survived the hit – but Brit mum Dawn died after spraying the discarded bottle on her wrist.

The Russian pair said they were only in Salisbury as tourists to visit the cathedral.

What is the background of the Skripal poisoning hitman?

A former Russian officer who said the men would probably have been trained at the Far Eastern Military Command Academy.

A search for graduates between 2001 and 2003 revealed a photo of seven former students who were bestowed with the Hero of Russia Award in Chechnya and one of them looked very much like Boshirov.

The true identity of his accomplice Petrov remains a mystery but he was understood to be travelling under his real first name, Alexander.
