The suspects' movements and 'reconnaissance mission' before attack — TIMELINE

The U.K. charged two Russian nationals over the attempted murder of a former spy and the use of a Novichok nerve agent on British soil, a move that will further sour ties with the Kremlin. They said the men flew from Moscow to London on Russian passports.

A police officer, Nick Bailey, was also hospitalized.

Police believe the nerve agent was smuggled to Britain in a counterfeit Nina Ricci perfume bottle and sprayed on the front door of Sergei Skripal's house.

Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov are seen at Salisbury train station on March 3 in an image taken from CCTV.

Britain blamed Russian Federation for the poisonings and identified the poison as Novichok, a deadly group of nerve agents developed by the Soviet military in the 1970s and 1980s.

She said: "The GRU is a highly-disciplined organisation with a well-established chain of command. It was nearly certainly approved outside the GRU, at a senior level of the Russian state", she told the parliament.

The incident happened in March when former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with a nerve agent in Salisbury, leaving them in critical condition and setting off a diplomatic crisis.

The men arrived in London from Moscow on March 2 and stayed at a London hotel before travelling to Salisbury the next day to scout out the city, police said.

Basu said he stood by Prime Minister Theresa May who said in March there was no other conclusion than that the Russian state was responsible.

Samsung to debut new features on mid-range phones rather than flagships
Koh admitted that while the development process for the bendy phone has been "complicated", the company has "nearly concluded" it. Koh says they are working on providing an experience different from what you get from a tablet when the device is unfolded.

Police issued photographs of the suspects, while Russian Federation continued to deny involvement.

On March 14, London says Moscow is "culpable" and vows to expel 23 Russian diplomats. "I don't understand why this was done and what sort of signal the British side is sending".

The poisoning has sparked a Cold War-style diplomatic crisis between Russian Federation and the West, including the expulsion of hundreds of diplomats from both sides. Members of the GRU have been indicted in the USA for hacking the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton's campaign during the 2016 US presidential election.

Western officials say Russia's intelligence services have grown increasingly aggressive in their overseas activities. Thanks in no small part to the pervasive surveillance cameras deployed by the Brits, they have a number of images showing both men, together and separately, as they traveled to accomplish their alleged mission. Yulia spent 20 days in a coma.

Afterwards they made their way to the City Stay Hotel in Bow, east London, for the first of their two-night stay.

The two men, named as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, were charged with the attempted murder of Sergei and Yulia Skripal.

They are also charged with illegal use and possession of a chemical weapon.

Hemming said the CPS would not be applying to have the men extradited as Russian Federation does not now allow the extradition of its nationals. However, he said they were making a good recovery. May said. She added that Britain's security services would pay closer attention to the GRU and work with allies to "deploy the full range of tools from across our national security apparatus in order to counter the threat posed by the GRU". It contained Novichok. Basu said police had no doubt the events were linked, and were discussing charges over the Sturgess and Rowley case with prosecutors.

Why have no charges been brought for the death of Dawn Sturgess? She said her government would "push for new European Union sanctions" against Russian Federation over the attack. Such a notice would make it hard for them to travel outside Russian Federation.
