Suspects caught on CCTV in March 2018

Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov were identified by the British government as being responsible for the March attack on Russian former double agent Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, who were allegedly poisoned by the Novichok nerve agent.[1]

On 26 September 2018, the Bellingcat website announced that it had discovered the actual identity of one of the two officers:

"The suspect using the cover identity of 'Ruslan Boshirov' is in fact Colonel Anatoliy Chepiga, a highly decorated GRU officer bestowed with Russia’s highest state award, 'Hero of the Russian Federation'."[2]
