A tent erected at the London Road cemetery in Salisbury, Wiltshire, over the memorial stone of Alexandr Skripal, the son of former Russian double agent, Sergei Skripal who along with his daughter Yulia, was found slumped on a bench in Salisbury, critically ill by exposure to a nerve agent.

Both Sergei and Yulia Skripal remain unconscious, in critical but stable condition, while police officer Nick Bailey, who responded to the incident and was also harmed by the substance, remains in a serious condition but is now able to speak.

They have either hedged their blaming of the Kremlin for the attempted assassination, or urged lawmakers to suspend judgment and allow the police investigation, which is being led by counter-terror officers, to run its course without conjecture. "Military assistance will continue as necessary during this investigation".

Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found unconscious on a bench in Salisbury on Sunday.

Former Commissioner Ian Blair has backed calls from a senior Labour Party lawmaker to re-examine the deaths in light of the attack on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the city of Salisbury.

Twenty-one people were taken to hospital following the incident, but apart from the Skripals, only Det. Sgt. Nick Bailey "has actually been to the house, whereas there is a doctor who looked after the patients in the open who hasn't been affected at all". British police are investigating the possibility that the Russian state was behind the poisoning.

She declined to give any details about the police investigation, saying detectives needed space to determine how and where Mr Skripal and his daughter were poisoned.

"The military has the expertise and capability to respond to a range of contingencies", added a statement from the Metropolitan Police. Skripal was arrested by the FSB in 2004 on suspicion of betraying dozens of Russian agents to British intelligence. Skripal, a former Russian military intelligence officer, was convicted in 2006 of spying for Britain and released in 2010.

Britain warns Russian Federation over double agent's mysterious illness

Marina Litvinenko commented on the attack on former Russian secret service agent Sergey Skripal in an interview with CNN. He told a British parliamentary panel approximately $800 billion worth of Russian state-backed assets, mostly real estate, are held outside Russia and could be targeted. But British health authorities say there is little risk to the wider public. "But the British government has remained extremely firm on sanctions and on a relatively anti-Russian position".

British authorities say they have identified the substance as a rare nerve agent, which experts say should help identify the source, but they have not named it publicly.

The Home Secretary threatened a "robust" response to the "brazen and reckless act" committed on United Kingdom soil.

"In terms of further options, that will have to wait until we're absolutely clear what the consequences could be, and what the actual source of this nerve agent has been", Ms Rudd said.

"But in order to have a serious conversation. you have to use the official channels".

Skripal and his daughter were in Salisbury city center from around 1:30 p.m. on March 4.

"What we see is only news reports. saying that if it is Russian Federation, then a response is going to be given that Russian Federation is going to remember forever", Mr Lavrov said during a visit to Addis Ababa.
