Russian TV anchor warns 'traitors' not to settle in Britain

GRU colonel and his daughter could be poisoned by hit men

What is known so far?

Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, have been in hospital since they were found on a bench outside a shopping center in the southern English city of Salisbury on March 4. Yulia Skripal remains in a critical condition.

CCTV footage carried by British media showed a woman and a older man walking near the bench where Skripal was found. They will help with the removal of contaminated items linked to the crime. Also in the scene were hospitalized police Sergeant nick Bailey. The two targets are still in very serious condition, the policeman is talking and is engaging so I'm more optimistic for him, but it's too early to say.

Counterterrorism police, who are leading the investigation, said in a March 9 statement, "The public should not be alarmed", adding, "military assistance will continue as necessary during this investigation".

The suggestion that the poison could have been dispersed inside the home raises the possibility that it was brought into Britain unwittingly in the form of a gift by Yulia, who had arrived from Moscow to visit her father the day before the pair were taken unwell.

"This is very likely the Russians - you don't get nerve agent down the freezer aisle in Morrisons". She declined to give details of the police investigation.

"Scientific tests by government experts have identified the specific nerve agent used which will help identify the source", they said. "We'll do that properly, at the right time, and on the basis of the best evidence". Researchers have also speculated the substance came from a state laboratory.

Fire officers in protective hazmat suits were seen pinning down the tent this afternoon.

"In essence what they do is to block the mechanism that allows a nerve to reset itself after a signal has been transmitted", he said. Speaking to reporters during a visit to the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa on Friday, Lavrov said Russian officials had not received a single fact or piece of concrete evidence about what had happened to Skripal and his daughter.

Zizzi and a nearby pub, the Bishop's Mill, are later cordoned off by police.

Sergei Viktrovich Skripal was born in the Soviet Union on June 23, 1951.

The Ministry of Defense regularly assists the emergency services and local authorities in Britain. He was convicted in his home country in 2006 for passing state secrets to MI6. It appears eager to fan the political flames in London with a top presenter, Kirill Kleymenov, gloating that "traitors" shouldn't think they are safe living in Britain.

Moscow's respected Kommersant newspaper reported in 2006 that the FSB considered that the damage he had done to Russian spying operations was comparable to that caused by Oleg Penkovsky, another GRU colonel. Russia's foreign spy service, the SVR, said it had no comment to make.

"But in order to conduct such cases, it is necessary not to immediately run out on TV screens with unfounded allegations", Lavrov was quoted as saying by Russian state news agency Tass in the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa. In 2006, he was sentenced to 13 years in prison, and pardoned in 2010 and gave U.S. in exchange for there exposed Russian agents.

The spy swap, one of the biggest since the Cold War, took place on the tarmac of Vienna airport where a Russian and a USA jet parked side by side before the agents were exchanged. (AP/AAP) A memorial plaque for Alexander Skripal, the son of ex Russian spy Sergei Skripal.

Since emerging from the John le Carre world of high espionage and betrayal, Skripal lived modestly in Salisbury and kept out of the spotlight until he was found unconscious on Sunday.
