Dr Alexander Mishkin goes by the alias “Alexander Petrov”, reports Bellingcat

A British investigative website has named a second suspect in the Salisbury case as Alexander Mishkin.

Bellingcat says he is a military doctor working for Russian intelligence and travelled to Salisbury under the alias Alexander Petrov.

Last month, the website named the first suspect as Anatoliy Chepiga, a claim rejected by Russia.

The UK believes both suspects are military officers who poisoned ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.
