British counter-terror police have identified the suspected mastermind of the 2018 nerve agent attack against former double agent Sergei Skripal as the Russian military intelligence commander Denis Sergeev.

In a statement on Tuesday, British prosecutors confirmed they had authorized a string of charges against Sergeev for the March 2018 nerve agent attack that left Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, seriously ill. A police officer was also injured and a member of the public, 44-year-old Dawn Sturgess, died after being exposed to the military-grade poison.

The prosecutors recommended that Sergeev should be charged with conspiracy to murder Skripal as well as the attempted murders of the former double agent, his daughter, and injured police officer Nick Bailey. Sergeev could also be charged with use of a chemical weapon.
