Former Russian spies Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yula reportedly be given new identifies and will begin new lives in the United States.

The Sunday Times of London reported that MI6 is organizing arrangements with the CIA to ensure that the two individuals are not attacked again.

On March 2nd, Sergei Skripal and his daughter were exposed to a lethal nerve agent Novichok — which was manufactured by Russian researchers during the Cold War.

The attack took place in the English city of Salisbury.

They have both recovered conscious and are expected to be interviewed by law enforcement who are investigating the attempted killings.

Although Sergei, 66, and Yula, 33, are not in critical condition anymore, it is expected that they will sustain life-long issues and will require “ongoing medical care.”

The report added that Britain wants them to reside in a so-called “five eyes’’ countries. Aside from Britain and the U.S., these countries consist of Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

“The obvious place to resettle is in America because they’re less likely to be killed and it’s easier to protect them there under a new identity,” an intelligence source stated.

“There’s a preference to be resettled in a five-eyes nation because their case would have huge security implications.”

The attack — for which Russia has rejected responsibility — infuriated the U.S. and countries within the European Union. It resulted in the expulsion of 60 Russian diplomats from the U.S.

In retaliation, the Russians did the same thing to the same amount of American diplomats.

Similar expulsions were revealed by several U.S. allies — which were then hit by the actions from Moscow.
