British investigators examine the scene where former spy Sergei Skripal and his son were poisoned in the city of Salisbury, England.

In an interview with Channel One TV, Victoria Skripal, the niece of former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal, raised the question that Mr. Skripal and his son had eaten puffer fish at a pizza restaurant before being found in this state.

`Is it difficult to collect information to see what diners ordered at the restaurant? This information is kept secret for some reason. The father and son ate a strange dish that they should not have eaten.`

According to police, spy Skripal and his son drank at The Bishop’s Mill pub and then had lunch at an Italian restaurant.

Fugu fish, also known as Japanese puffer fish, contains the toxin tetrodotoxin, which can cause muscle paralysis and stop breathing.

In addition, Victoria Skripal also believes that the possibility that Mr. Skripal and his son were poisoned with a nerve agent right at their door is unreasonable.

Previously, in another interview with Rossiya 1 TV channel, Victoria Skripal published a tape allegedly recorded of a conversation between her and the daughter of former spy Sergei Skripal on the morning of April 5.

The Russian Embassy in the UK said on April 4 that the British Foreign Ministry refused to share with Moscow a sample of the poison allegedly used to kill former spy Skripal and also did not respond to Russia’s request for information.

A spokesman for the Russian Foreign Ministry said that it has not received conclusions from scientists at the British military research facility Porton Down on the origin of the Novichok nerve agent.

Former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned in the city of Salisbury, England on March 4.

To date, 28 countries, mostly in Europe, have responded to the British Prime Minister’s call and expelled about 150 Russian diplomats.
