Seems likely.

I have no idea if it's state sanctioned or not but it seems that the worst penalty the killers face at home is a pat on the back and a hearty "well done".

I think this story writes itself. More will be revealed, once toxicology test results are available.

Never forget Putin is an ex senior officer in the KGB and that Russians have long memories.

I note that Boris has no truck with trivia such as evidence - !"When it becomes obvious that the Russian state is involved, HMG will take strong action".

No mention of "if" they are involved.

As far as I'm aware, there is currently no evidence that a crime has been committed, although there are a lot of coincidences. The toxicology tests may provide a lot more information.

Standby for the movie.

Surprised no one has suggested a leak from Porton Down, just a couple of miles away!

Portion Down is trying to identity substance involved. I remember just avoiding going there in the mid - late 50’s when they were testing all sorts of stuff. Fortunately went to Suez and Cyprus instead.
