“A couple in the United Kingdom is in critical condition after being poisoned by a military grade nerve agent — and Russia may be to blame.

Dawn Sturgess and Charles Rowley, both British citizens in their mid-40s, fell ill in their home in Wiltshire, England, on Saturday. Sturgess collapsed first and was taken to the hospital; later that day, an ambulance was sent back to bring Rowley to the emergency room as well. The couple remains in critical condition in the Salisbury District Hospital.

Though police initially thought a contaminated batch of illegal drugs was to blame, UK Home Secretary Sajid Javid said on Thursday that authorities now believe the couple was exposed to Novichok, the same lethal poison that was used in the attempted assassination of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter last March.

That attack took place just eight miles from where Sturgess and Rowley live, in the town of Amesbury in the southern region of England. It prompted a massive decontamination effort that took several months to complete and cost about £7.5 million, which is about $9.9 million in USD.”
