The Salisbury Attack in small sleepy UK town has now prompted global sanctions against Russia. Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his partner were poisoned by Novichok, a military grade agent which was developed in the Soviet Union during the 1970's and 80's as a super chemical weapon which can almost instantly kill thousands of people. It is suspect that the Kremlin was responsible for the attack. The motivation? Payback for a traitor and to send a message to others thinking about following in Sergei's footsteps.
The 2018 "Russian Spy Assassins: The Salisbury Attack" documentary hosted by British journalist Matt Frei examines what happened. There is a still a lot of public confusion about what exactly went on; even today (27th March) the British Prime minister has come out and said more than 130 people could have been exposed to the nerve agent.
