A man who is critically ill after being exposed to an unknown substance in Wiltshire is a Russian national convicted of spying for Britain, the BBC understands.
Sergei Skripal, 66, was granted refuge in the UK following a "spy swap" between the US and Russia in 2010.
Looks like Putin is at again and another former Russian spy who turned sides and gave information to Britain will likely die soon. Alexander Litvinenko, the most high profile Russian turncoat, was killed in similar circumstances after Russian agents irradiated half of London with their poison.
Perhaps these people are being killed off because they have been critical of Putin, but I suspect the fact that they became double agents passing information to Britain is the reason for the attacks on them.
Should we just stand for this and allow Putin to murder people at will on British streets, or perhaps you may think its just a internal Russian matter, so who cares? But these people did work for Britain in the end and provided this country with valuable information. Shouldn't they be afforded some degree of protection against Putin's henchmen?
