Britain official: Russian Federation spied on Yulia Skripal's emails for 5 years

Britain official: Russian Federation spied on Yulia Skripal's emails for 5 years

"Only Russia has the technical means, operational experience and the motive", he writes.

"Mr. Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russian Federation", specifically from the Novichok group, British Prime Minister Theresa May said after the incident, based on an assessment by British experts. The highest concentration of the substance was found on the front door.

But in her most recent statement, Ms Skripal clarified that Viktoria's "opinions and assertions are not mine and they are not my father's".

The attack aggravated an already strained relationship between Russian Federation and the West, with London blaming Moscow for the poisoning of the double-agent and his daughter.

In a statement issued through police, she said she was not yet strong enough to give a full media interview but "no-one speaks for me, or for my father".

Sir Mark also identified the key institute for developing Novichok in the former Soviet Union as a branch of the State Institute for Organic Chemistry and Technology at Shikany near Volgograd.

It insists the nerve agent used on the Skripals could easily have been manufactured in any of the other countries that have advanced chemical research programs.

Mikhail Babich, the Kremlin's envoy in the Volga Federal District, rejected the report. He advised the United Kingdom against taking rash steps in Syria based on a fabricated chemical weapons attack last Saturday, saying it would be similar to the misguided intervention in Iraq in 2003. "Shikhany is not one of them".

"We didn't produce Novichok, we didn't store this Novichok, so-called under the Western classification, was never in our military forces".

He then describes how Russian Federation later launched a program to test methods of delivering chemical warfare agents and to train personnel in their use.

He said that it included investigating ways of delivering nerve agents by applying them to door handles.

Sedwill said within the last decade, Russian Federation has produced and stockpiled small quantities of Novichok, which was found on Sergei Skripal's front door.

National Security Security Adviser Sir Mark Sedwill revealed cyber specialists from the GRU - Russian military intelligence - targeted Yulia Skripal's email accounts as far back as 2013.

Skripal, 33, regained consciousness in late March, several weeks after the poisoning that left her and her father, former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, 66, in critical condition.

He argues that "Russia has a proven record of conducting state-sponsored assassination", referencing the murder of former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko in 2006. The incident has led to a spiraling diplomatic dispute between Russian Federation and the UK.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson hailed the findings, and said "only Russia" could have been behind the attack.

However Russia, which has denied it played any role in the attack on the Skripals, said it believed the watchdog's report was part of a British operation to discredit Russia.

"If somebody was spying, why were the British services not complaining about that", he said, according to Sky News.
