POISONED Sergei and Yulia Skripal FOOTAGE Suspects in Salisbury KREMLIN spy chiefs have launched an international hunt for Vladimir Putin’s new No1 target – the Russian “traitor” who helped identify the alleged novichok hitmen.
It is thought Moscow’s intelligence bosses assumed the assassins were unknown, so could not be unmasked.
The chiefs were shocked that MI5 identified Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov as GRU military intelligence officers.
There are suspicions the pair are in a ruthless Spetsnaz special forces unit, part of the GRU and trained in assassinations behind enemy lines.
