Russian TV anchor warns 'traitors' not to settle in Britain

The ex-spy and his daughter remain in critical condition.

A vehicle recovery centre is being searched as part of the latest investigation into the nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy.

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia collapsed on Sunday afternoon after being exposed to a nerve agent.

According to local police chief Kier Pritchard, "around 21 people" have received treatment following the attack.

Skripal was given refuge by the United Kingdom as part of a spy swap in 2010 after he was convicted in Russian Federation of passing secrets to the MI6.

They have either hedged their blaming of the Kremlin for the attempted assassination, or urged lawmakers to suspend judgment and allow the police investigation, which is being led by counter-terror officers, to run its course without conjecture.

Sergei, an ex-Russian spy and his daughter, Yulia, are said to still be in a "very serious" condition following a nerve agent attack in Salisbury.

Based on police reports of the Salisbury incident, experts said it is most likely that the toxin was delivered with an aerosol spray or a wipe, and transferred to the skin or clothing of the victims.

Authorities cordoned off Skripal's house, a auto, a restaurant, a pub and the cemetery where Skripal's wife, Lyudmila, is buried and where there is also a memorial headstone for his son, Alexander. He told a British parliamentary panel approximately $800 billion worth of Russian state-backed assets, mostly real estate, are held outside Russia and could be targeted.

During the attempted poisoning of former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal in the British city of Salisbury, injured 20 people, including the daughter of Yulia Skripal and Sergeant nick Bailey. "This is not serious, it is pure propaganda and whipping up hysteria", Lavrov said.

Meanwhile, head of Britain's Counter Terrorism Policing Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said: "The nerve agent used was an unusual one and could probably only be developed in a state-sponsored laboratory".

Since emerging from the John le Carre world of high espionage and betrayal, Skripal lived modestly in Salisbury and kept out of the spotlight until he was found unconscious on Sunday.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said ministers, officials and dignitaries may not attend the event if there is evidence of state involvement in the incident. They diligently did their duty with a disregard for their own safety, showing exactly why we should always look to support these incredibly dedicated individuals, and take swift and robust action against those who seek to put them in harm's way.

Russia's foreign minister says the country could help Britain investigate the poisoning there of an ex-Russian spy, but expressed resentment of suspicions cast on Moscow.

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.

"You can not tolerate a government assassination on British soil - it is absolutely beyond the pale and needs a reaction", he said.

The expulsion of the Russian ambassador Alexander Yakovenko and known or suspected agents was an obvious first step despite the risks bilateral ties could go into a "deep freeze", said Sir Christopher Meyer, a former British ambassador to Washington.

Existing sanctions are already a real "problem" for Russia because London has become "a hub for Russian money abroad", he said.

He described seeing around 10 people in hazmat suits looking at the vehicle, which was said to be a Mercedes people-carrier.

Skripal has been living in Britain since 2010, when he was part of a prisoner exchange for 10 Russian spies arrested by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
