Is Sergei Skripal still alive?

Yes. Sergei and his daughter Yulia, who was also a victim in the attack, reportedly lived in a safe house guarded by MI6 for over a year.

However, the men denied any involvement in the poisoning during an interview with Russia Today back in 2018.

When asked why they where in Salisbury, Petrov explained: “Our friends had been suggesting for a long time that we visit this wonderful town [Salisbury].”

Boshirov said: "It's a tourist town - there's a famous cathedral there. Salisbury cathedral.

"It's famous for its 123-metre spire, it's famous for its clock - the first clock to be invented in the world, and it's still going."
