Skripal and his daughter may have been exposed to the nerve agent used in their attempted assassination through his vehicle ventilation system, intelligence sources told the United States television channel ABC news. Both are now in the hospital in critical condition.

Britain's action was sequel to the use of a Russian-developed nerve agent to poison Skripal and daughter but Russia has repeatedly denied any involvement and dismissed the accusation as "shocking and inexcusable".

Mr Skripal, 66, and his 33-year-old daughter Yulia, have been in hospital in a critical condition since being found unconscious on a bench outside a shopping centre in the English city of Salisbury earlier this month.

He said: 'We actually have evidence within the last 10 years that Russian Federation has not only been investigating the delivery of nerve agents for the purposes of assassination, but has also been creating and stockpiling Novichok'.

In a statement, it said: "Our priority today is looking after our staff in Russian Federation and assisting those that will return to the UK".

"Russia's response doesn't change the facts of the matter - the attempted assassination of two people on British soil, for which there is no alternative conclusion other than that the Russian State was culpable".

A post-mortem exam on the Russian exile, who had links to compatriots who died in mysterious circumstances in the United Kingdom, "gave the cause of death as compression to the neck", a police statement said.

Russian Federation offered some cooperation to British authorities after the 2006 London murder of ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko too.
