The poisoning in the English town of Salisbury of former Soviet agent, Sergei Skripol, and his daughter, Yulia, in March last year, brought a concerted effort by British security services to catch those responsible, resulting in the identification of Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov
Realizing these two could not have acted on their own, the police stepped-up their efforts, dug deep into their resources, and through sheer hard work and determination, have now managed to unearth a shady third character in the chain. The suspect is male, though, at this stage in the investigation, his name cannot be put in print.
It's known, however, after talking to people with 'loose lips', that the man worked for the KGB in East Germany, and held the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. He is currently working within the Russian government in a prominent position, and is known to be exceedingly dour with an expressionless, cold, icy stare.
Mr Skripal and Yulia are now fully recovered, but very nervous.
