Amesbury: Sajid Javid confronts Russian Federation over nerve agent emergency

Amesbury: Sajid Javid confronts Russian Federation over nerve agent emergency

Russian Federation has denied any involvement in the March incident and suggested the British security services had carried out that attack to stoke anti-Moscow hysteria.

"Based upon the number of casualties affected, it is not believed that there is a significant health risk to the wider public", said the Wiltshire Police, adding that it was not yet known whether the two were the victims of a crime.

Medics attended again several hours later, after Mr Rowley also fell ill.

Vil Mirzayanov, a Soviet scientist who worked on the development of Novichok before defecting to the United States, said that if the Amesbury couple were infected by material left over from the Skripals incident, it is unlikely the agent was exposed to the elements because it retained enough potency to cause harm.

Wiltshire Police Chief Constable Kier Pritchard called the increased police presence a "proportionate response to an investigation of this nature and scale".

That means authorities will have to take soil and vegetation samples from sites where it's possible the nerve agent was present and painstakingly test the samples to see if there is any contamination.

A friend said Rowley was a drug user and police said "paraphernalia" found in his house had initially led them to believe that the couple had fallen ill after consuming contaminated crack cocaine or heroin.

Officials did not say why they had waited four days to declare a "major incident".

A desperate search to find the remnants of the deadly nerve agent thought to have been used in the attempted assassination of Sergei and Yulia Skripal is under way.

British officials say a man and woman have been critically injured by the same Russian nerve agent used against a former spy and his daughter.

The UK's Home Secretary Sajid Javid had not ruled out earlier that new measures would be imposed on Russian Federation in case Moscow's involvement in the poisoning of two Britons in Amesbury is proved.

One theory suggests Dawn or Charlie handled a "contaminated" item discarded by the Skripal assassin at Queen Elizabeth Gardens in Salisbury.

What has the government said?

"It is now time that the Russian state comes forward and explains what has gone on".

- Prime Minister Theresa May declared Salisbury is "very much open for business" after residents raised fears that the new case will hamper the local economy. "We urge British law enforcement not to get involved in dirty political games that certain powers in London have already begun and instead finally cooperate with Russian law enforcement in their investigations", Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told reporters.
