Making sense of the Novichok poisonings and their repercussions.
Sergei and Yulia Skripal were poisoned with Novichok in Salisbury on 4 March 2018. A police officer investigating the incident also fell ill after coming into contact with the nerve agent. Subsequently, two further people – Charlie Rowley and Dawn Sturgess – were poisoned, the latter fatally. Agents of the Russian military's foreign intelligence agency – commonly referred to as the GRU – are the prime suspects in the British authorities' investigation. What is the broader context, and what are the broader implications, of these poisonings? How has the Russian political leadership responded? How has media coverage varied? Join us on 14 November from 19:00 in the Darwin Lecture Theatre for a panel event (panel members to be announced shortly) to discuss these issues.
Please note, if you are registering for more than one ticket you must provide the name of each attendee. Multiple tickets under the same name will be cancelled.
