Russia Spy’s Daughter Poisoned: She Commented “Nice” When A Friend Said Vladimir Putin Stole From The Poor And Deserved Jail
Former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia may have been poisoned on Sunday over a Facebook comment she made about Russian President Vladimir Putin, it has emerged.

Sergei Skripal, 66, a former Russian military official convicted of spying for the UK, and his daughter, Yulia, 33, who was visiting from Moscow, remain in hospital in critical condition in Salisbury after “suspected exposure to an unknown toxic substance”, Wiltshire Police said in a statement.

Yulia Skripal who was found unconscious on a shopping center bench in southern England next to her father is believed to have commented “nice” when a friend said Putin stole from the poor and deserved jail, according to The Sun, it is feared Putin’s henchmen may have been monitoring Yulia’s social media.

“there’s a long tradition, since the 1920s, of Russia eliminating its enemies,” said Dr Paul Flenley, a senior lecturer in politics and international relations at Portsmouth University.

“The secret police are well trained. There’s an assumption you can’t escape, there’s a code and if you break it, if you betray them, they will get you – it’s part of their discipline.” Mr Flenley added.
