U.K. prosecutors say they have enough evidence to charge the two suspects in the attack on Skripal, a former GRU officer who had betrayed the service by spying for Britain.Instead, Britain is trying to squeeze Moscow through diplomatic, economic and covert channels.After the Skripals were poisoned March 4, Britain and more than two dozen other countries expelled a total of 150 Russian spies working under diplomatic cover. This week Britain promised more – though unspecified – responses.Britain could also take offensive action of its own against Russian websites, though officials stress the U.K. sticks within the law – and British officials may not want to escalate international cyberconflict.Some doubt U.K. actions will hurt Moscow much. London is a magnet for wealthy Russians, and critics of Putin say Britain should do more to stop the president's wealthy backers from enjoying their money and property in the U.K.
