The second suspect involved in the Salisbury poisoning case has been identified as Alexander Mishkin, according to researchers at a British investigative website.

The Bellingcat added that the suspect who travelled under the alias Alexander Petrov is actually a military doctor working for the Russian intelligence service GRU. The website identified the suspect using testimonies from people the suspect knew and a scanned copy of his passport, according to latest reports.

Last month, Bellingcat had named the first suspect as Anatoliy Chepiga who is allegedly a decorated Russian agent, a claim rejected by Russia.

Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned in March.
