Russian tabloid publishes ‘Skripal audio recording’

Moscow: A Russian tabloid on Thursday published what it said was an audio recording of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, who was poisoned along with his daughter in Britain last year.
The Skripals were discovered unconscious in the English town of Salisbury in March 2018 after they were poisoned by what investigators said was a highly toxic nerve agent.
UK authorities say the Skripals recovered from the attack and are kept in a secret location under the protection of the British state.
The popular Moskovsky Komsomolets published the 30-second recording on its website, saying it was the voice of the former double agent talking to his Russia-based niece, Viktoria Skripal. (AFP)
