250 officers from 8 units: UK diverts 'enormous resources' to probe Russian ex-spy's poisoning

250 officers from 8 units: UK diverts 'enormous resources' to probe Russian ex-spy's poisoning | 11 March 2018 | Amid hysteria surrounding the mysterious poisoning of Sergei Skripal, Britain is dedicating a significant part of the country's anti-terrorism capacity to look for Moscow's hand in the former Russian double agent's misfortune. The UK government has diverted significant resources, with eight out of Britain's 11 anti-terrorism units currently helping to investigate the poisoning of former GRU agent Sergei Skripal, Home Secretary Amber Rudd revealed, at a time when a "severe" international terrorism threat hangs over Britain. The UK believes that Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, were exposed to a nerve agent. Following the incident, authorities managed to collect 240 pieces of evidence and have identified some 200 witnesses to the crime, Rudd said, noting that 250 officers are taking part in the investigation.
