The Salisbury poisoning of Sergei Skripal was one of the strangest stories of 2018. The Kremlin’s presumed involvement turned the case into a circus, but broadcaster Mark Urban has solid evidence, drawn from interviews Skripal gave pre-attack. The Skripal Files investigates his time in the Russian intelligence services and recruitment by MI6, starting a chain of events that would bring him close to death and worsen already fragile UK-Russian relations. Chaired by Ruth Wishart.
