“In March 2018, Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with an insidious, Soviet-developed nerve agent called A-234.

Skripal was a former Russian intelligence officer who had been living in the United Kingdom since 2010. He had previously worked as a double agent for the country’s intelligence service from 1995 until he was arrested in Moscow in 2004.

Skripal and his daughter survived the attack – although just barely.

Six years earlier, Alexander Perepilichnyy, a businessman who had been investigating a $230-million Russian money laundering operation, collapsed while running outside his home in Weybridge, Surrey. His death was original ruled natural, but traces of poison were later found in his stomach. An inquest will resume next month.

Thirty-three-year-old Anti-Putin activist Vladimir Kara-Murza has survived two poisoning attempts, once in 2015 and again in 2017. Both times he had to undergo total blood transfusions to survive.”
