Britain charged two Russians in absentia Wednesday with the attempted murder of a former Russian spy and his daughter, and said the suspects were military intelligence officers almost certainly acting on orders from high up in the Russian state.British police revealed images of the two men that they said had flown to Britain for a weekend in March to kill former spy Sergei Skripal with Novichok, a military-grade nerve agent.The Russian charge d'affaires in London was summoned to the Foreign Office to be told Britain wanted those responsible to be brought to justice.U.S. Ambassador to Britain Woody Johnson said on Twitter the U.S. stood with Britain in holding Russia accountable for its "act of aggression".A European arrest warrant has been issued for them, but prosecutors said Britain would not ask Moscow to extradite Russian citizens because Russia's constitution forbids it.Britain charged two Russians with his murder but both remain in Russia, and one later won a seat in Parliament.
