Media: London will require Moscow to extradite suspects in Salisbury poisoning
The British government intends to send to Russia a request for extradition to the UK of suspects in the case of poisoning in Salisbury, writes the British edition of The Guardian, citing sources in the government and security forces.
According to the newspaper, London intends to send to Moscow a request for the extradition of two Russian citizens allegedly involved in the poisoning of the father and daughter Skripal in Salisbury. It is noted that hundreds of police officers and intelligence services of Britain for the "months of thorough investigation" could accurately "track the entire path of two Russians from the time of entry to the moment of departure from the country." The extradition request was prepared by the Crown Prosecution Service and is ready to send it at any time.
The Guardian does not believe that Russia will give Britain its citizens and are inclined to believe that the request will be rejected, thereby leading London and Moscow to a new round of diplomatic scandal.
It should be recalled that there is no bilateral extradition agreement between Russia and the UK. In recent years, London has not particularly considered Russian requests for the extradition of Russian citizens to Russia. Moscow is doing the same. It is unlikely that in the situation with the request for extradition in the case of Skripaley of the citizens of Russia to London something “shines”. And not everything is so clear in this matter, as they say in Britain.
