The second Russian who Britain blames for the poisoning of a former spy has been named as a military doctor for Russia's spy service.

The investigative website Bellingcat has named him as Alexander Yevgenyevich Mishkin.

The 39-year-old was charged in absentia by Britain last month under the name of Alexander Petrov.

Both he and another man are wanted for attempted murder for a Novichok attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March.
