  • We need to make it clear again to Putin that bad behaviour will not pay

Sergei Skripal, a former Russian colonel and military intelligence officer, was found unconscious on Sunday along with his daughter in Salisbury, about 90 miles southwest of London.

Sergei Skripal and his daughter remain in a critical condition.

Channel One anchorman Kirill Kleimenov said in the Wednesday broadcast that he didn't wish death or suffering on anyone but wanted those "who dream of such a career" to know that traitors rarely live long. "We will take any necessary actions, but we need to ensure the police have the space to carry out the investigation".

Prime Minister Theresa May said her thoughts were with Det Sgt Bailey, adding: "The events of Sunday are a stark reminder, if ever one was needed, of the risky situations our emergency services face, and the dedication and courage they display every day in order to keep us safe".

Trump, bucking many members of his own party, orders steep new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports to the U.S.

"It is possible that it is related to the elections in Russia or that it is part of a battle between the elites within the security services, to send messages either to the English or to the Russian elites", he said.

The Kremlin insists it is not involved.

Incidentally, Alexander Litvinenko was murdered at Millennium Hotel in London in 2006 soon after Skripal was imprisoned.

That has led to the theory that Skripal and his daughter had been poisoned at the ex-MI6 agent's house in Christie Miller Road, and not the restaurant Zizzi where they dined before collapsing.

Ms Rudd said: 'I've spoken to Mark Rowley (Scotland Yard's head of counter-terrorism policing) this morning. Researchers have also speculated the substance came from a state laboratory.

Authorities are racing to find the source of the nerve agent used against 66-year-old Skripal, who came to Britain in 2010 as part of a spy swap, as politicians warned it bore the hallmarks of an attack by Russian Federation. Calling it a "tragic situation", Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the Kremlin had no information about the incident.

Russia, however, has labelled the coverage of Skripal's poisoning as hysterical propaganda. Russia's embassy in London said the incident was being used to demonise Russian Federation and that it was seriously concerned by British media reporting of the Skripal incident.

"The spy caused significant damage to Russia's ability to defend itself and to state security", the FSB said at the time, Itar-Tass reported.

"Investigation of Sergei Skripal case follows the Litvinenko script: most info to be classified, Russian Federation to get no access to investigation files and no opportunity to assess its credibility", the tweet says.

Skripal, who was shown wearing a track suit in a cage in court during his sentencing, was jailed for 13 years in 2006. Russian media said his motivation was financial: he received more than $100,000 paid into a Spanish bank account. But he was pardoned in 2010 by then-president Dmitry Medvedev as part of a swap to bring 10 Russian agents held in the United States back to Moscow. Mrs May said: "Depending on what comes out in relation to the investigation into the attack on the two individuals that took place in Salisbury.it might be appropriate to look at whether ministers and other dignitaries should attend the World Cup in Russian Federation".

One of the Russian spies exchanged for Skripal was Anna Chapman. They were arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 2010.
