Boris Johnson calls on Russia to hand over Salisbury poisoning suspects

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called on Russia to hand over the Salisbury Novichok poisoning suspects after charges were authorised against a third spy.

Denis Sergeev, who used the alias Sergey Fedotov while in the UK, faces a string of charges that include trying to kill former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, his daughter Yulia and ex-police officer Nick Bailey.

The Skripals were left fighting for their lives in March 2018, when members of a Russian military intelligence squad are believed to have smeared Novichok on Mr. Skripal’s door.
