Second Skripal Poisoning Suspect Identified as Dr. Alexander Mishkin

OSINT organization and forum Bellingcat has released its report on the identity of the second Skripals poisoning suspect. “In the preceding report from the current investigation into the two suspects in the Skripals poisoning case, Bellingcat and its reporting partner the Insider disclosed the identity of one of the two suspects. The person travelling under the alias of Ruslan Boshirov was identified as GRU’s Col. Anatoliy Chepiga, recipient of Russia’s highest state award. Bellingcat can now report that it has conclusively identified the second suspect, who travelled to Salisbury under the alias Alexander Petrov. In its previous reporting, we already produced evidence that ‘Alexander Petrov’ is not an authentic persona, but an undercover alias for an officer of a Russian security agency. In another report, we established that ‘Petrov’ was specifically working for Russia’s military intelligence, the GRU.”
