Attacked Russian spy connected to Trump dossier

The former Russian double agent poisoned with a nerve agent in an attempted murder last weekend was linked to the company that compiled the infamous 'Trump dossier' alleging the US president had compromising Russian connections, British media have reported.

Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33, were in critical condition in intensive care after the attack in Salisbury, England, on Sunday afternoon (Monday NZ Time). There are reportedly fears that Skripal was unlikely to recover, though his daughter has a better chance.

Skripal was convicted of treason and imprisoned in 2006 in Russia for passing intelligence to MI6. In 2010, he was pardoned and sent to the UK as part of a spy swap deal.
