Britain announced charges against two alleged agents of Russia's GRUmilitary intelligence service for the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury in March.

The council will meet in open session at around 11:30 am (1530 GMT), diplomats said.

May told the United Kingdom parliament on Wednesday that the Crown Prosecution Service was ready to charge two Russian citizens - Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov - with an attempt on the lives of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

The Russians are charged with conspiracy to murder Sergei Skripal and the attempted murder of Skripal, his daughter and Nick Bailey, a police officer who was taken ill while attending to the Skripals.

She said that during 2008-2015 hundreds of Russian citizens, which the activist called "a country with a high level of corruption", received visas investors without proper verification of capital.

Speaking to Sky News a day after the United Kingdom has revealed the names of the two Russian suspects for the March 4 chemical attack, Wallace argued that an operation at this level must have been authorized by the president himself.

US President Donald Trump, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian PM Justin Trudeau earlier issued a joint statement with Theresa May agreeing with the British assessment that the operation was "almost certainly approved at a senior government level" in Moscow.

According to a Daily Mail report, Linfesty and his friends were randomly picked up to stand behind Trump during the rally. A high school student was replaced at a Trump rally after his expressions displeased Trump staffers at the Montana rally.

Both Sergei and Yulia Skripal survived the attack, but only after extensive medical treatment.

Britain and its allies blame Russian Federation for the attack, a claim Moscow vehemently denies.

British and Russian officials will come face-to-face as the UN Security Council discusses the attack in NY.

Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu also confirmed officers have now linked the attack on the Skripals to events in nearby Amesbury four months later.

The two suspects recorded by surveillance cameras the day before the attack on the Skripals, at a location not far from the victims' home, in Salisbury, England, on March 4, 2018.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova went on national television Wednesday evening and said the security camera footage of the two suspects arriving at Gatwick Airport released by the British authorities had been doctored because it shows them at the same time in the same place.

The two are thought to have been using the names as aliases and are about 40 years old, the BBC said on its website.

We saw it with Reggie Wayne and Tedy Bruschi and Eric Decker this year, who they were going to release before he retired. They want to talk about a lot of drama and I'm sure teams have a lot of things like that.

A British woman, Dawn Sturgess, died in July after coming across a small bottle containing Novichok in a town near Salisbury where the Skripals were struck down.

The police force released a series of images of the suspects as they travelled through London and Salisbury between March 2 and March 4.

Peskov recalled that Russian Federation offered Britain cooperation in the investigation into the Skripal case from the very beginning, but Britain declined to accept it.

The charges relate to the first incident, but Mr Basu said officers continue to liaise with the CPS regarding the poisoning of Mr Rowley and Ms Sturgess.

Inconspicuously labeled as "Nina Ricci Premier Jour" and bearing the words "Made in France", the bottle had been specially created to be leakproof and had a custom applicator, UK Metropolitan police said.

President Putin's foreign policy adviser, Yuri Ushakov, told reporters in Moscow that the names of the suspects "do not mean anything to me".
