There have been some interesting developments in the alleged poisoning case of the British-Russian double-agent Sergej Skripal and his daughter Yulia. The British government's standing on the issue is getting worse as more inconsistencies and doubts on its statements come to light. The international support for its claims is weakening. On March 4 the Skripals collapsed on a public bench in Salisbury in England after they had visited a pub and a restaurant. They were brought to the local hospital.
