Second Russian suspect in Skripal poison attack 'identified'

The second of two Russians whom Britain blame for the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal was named by investigative website Bellingcat on Monday as a military doctor for Russia's GRU intelligence service.Bellingcat, which covers intelligence matters, named him as Alexander Yevgenyevich Mishkin, aged 39, who was charged by Britain last month under the name of Alexander Petrov.Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper also named Mishkin in a separate report published on Monday.British prosecutors charged Petrov and another man they named as Ruslan Boshirov in absentia with attempted murder for the Novichok nerve agent attack on Skripal and his daughter in the English city of Salisbury in March, but said they believed the suspects had used aliases to enter Britain.Bellingcat last month identified Boshirov as a colonel in the GRU whose real name was Anatoliy Chepiga.
