This was disclosed by the police after examining the perpetrators through recording CCTV around the scene.

Investigators are said to be confident of identifying the suspect’s perpetrators of the nerve toxic attack via CCTV and cross-checking it with a record of people entering the UK.

“Investigators believe they have identified suspected Novichok attackers via CCTV and have cross-examined them with records of people entering the country around that time,” said a source in an anonymous condition.

“They (investigators) believe they (the suspects) are Russians,” he added.

So far government officials and other departments have refused to comment on the alleged perpetrators.

The Russian Embassy in London has seized a message from the minister and urged the UK to conduct a transparent investigation. The case has taken an interest in where Skripal and his daughter were exposed to Novichok’s neurological agent in Salisbury, Southwest England.
