The Russian double agent at the heart of the Skripal affair. Possibly being held at an unknown location by UK authorities

Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia Skripal were poisoned on 4 March 2018. The UK official narrative states that was with Novichok, a nerve agent,[1] although commentators including Craig Murray find this explanation quite implausible[2] and there is speculation that fentanyl was in fact the drug used.[3]

Career

Sergei Skripal became a spook in the USSR. In 1999, as a senior Russian spook, he was recruited by Pablo Miller head of British intelligence in Tallinn working under the cover of first secretary of the British embassy in Estonia.[4] He was imprisoned in Russia, but released to the UK in an exchange of prisoners.

Miller continued to work as his handler.

Skripal Affair

Full article: Skripal Affair

On 12 April 2018, editor and writer Finian Cunningham warned that the Skripals had become "hostages of the British state.”[5]

“Far from the Skripal father and daughter being the alleged victims of a Russian assassination plot, it now seems increasingly apparent that they are being held against their will by Britain’s authorities. In short, hostages of the British state.”

Fate

Unclear.

In any major criminal inquiry one of the basic questions the investigation asks is: who had the means, the motive and the opportunity? Framed in that light, the Russians come a distant fourth behind the other prime suspects: the U.S. and U.K. intelligence agencies themselves, and those elements of the deep state opposed to Donald Trump.
