Britain will demand from Russia to extradite two Russians

"They joined the movement and actions of two Russians, from their arrival in Britain before the departure", - the newspaper notes.

The UK government is ready to submit the request to Russia to extradite two suspects Russians in case of poisoning as a Novice in Salisbury.

Former Russian agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found slumped on a bench in Salisbury after exposure to novichok on March 4.

Britain blamed Russian Federation for the poisonings and identified the poison as Novichok, a deadly group of nerve agents developed by the Soviet military in the 1970s and 1980s.

British officials blamed Russian Federation for the attack, but the Kremlin denied any involvement.

Diplomatic relations deteriorated in the wake of the Skripal case and could take a further downward turn if Russian Federation refuses to extradite the two people in question, a step it is unlikely to take. "They joined the movement and actions of two Russians from their entry to the United Kingdom prior to their departure", - said in the message. She had been in hospital for eight days. The Russian constitution prevents the extradition of Russian citizens to another state.

Russian officials refused to hand over the men wanted for the murder of Alexander Litvinenko with a rare radioactive isotope in 2006. Moscow has repeatedly denied any involvement and accused the British intelligence agencies of staging the attack to stoke anti-Russian hysteria.

They believe the bottle was then dropped somewhere in the city, where Charlie Rowley picked it up and gave it to his partner Dawn Sturgess, who died after apparently spritzing it on her wrist. Rowley recovered but Sturgess died. British police believe the Novichok attacks were carried out using perfume bottle sprays or smears placed directly on their doorknobs and other surfaces.

Government officials and prosecutors would not confirm details of the Guardian report when queried by dpa.
