While the request is nearly certain to be rejected out of hand by the Russian authorities, it is likely to reignite the bitter diplomatic row that erupted following the poisoning of the former Russian spy in March.

The UK government is ready to submit the request to Russia to extradite two suspects Russians in case of poisoning as a Novice in Salisbury.

According to The Guardian, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has prepared the papers required for the process and is ready to file.

According to the publication, the request for extradition has already been prepared and is going to be sent to Russian authorities in the nearest future.

Earlier this year, after Russian ex-spy Sergey Skripal and his daughter were likely attacked with the Novichok nerve agent, which left them both in critical condition in hospital for weeks, the United Kingdom, and a number of its allies, expelled Russian diplomats.

It is also expected to reignite a diplomatic row with Russian Federation, the Guardian reported.

"This is Litvinenko all over again".

Police believe the Novichok was smeared on the door of Sergei Skripal's house and perhaps discarded in a container that Sturgess's boyfriend Charlie Rowley then picked up.

While the request is nearly certain to be rejected out of hand by the Russian authorities, it will likely reignite the bitter diplomatic row which erupted following the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, in March.

Russian Federation has angrily rejected any involvement, plunging diplomatic relations into crisis.

The Skripals were hospitalized for months in critical condition, but after what they described as a painful period of recovery, both were released.

Rowley said he had found a perfume bottle which he gave to Sturgess, which she sprayed on her wrists.

Russian officials refused to hand over suspects in the murder case of Alexander Litvinenko.
