Evil Vladimir Putin’s poison of choice is so deadly it leaves its victims “frothing at the mouth” before they “drown in their own fluids”, an expert has revealed.
The infamous killer Novichok shot to fame after the brutal Russian dictator ordered it to be used against double agent Sergei Skripal in Salisbury in 2018.
Russian spies named as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov were accused of carrying out the gruesome act, that miraculously saw Skripal survive but sadly killed British national Dawn Sturgess.

Now, an increasingly desperate Putin has been tipped to unleash the same deadly compound against civilians in his bloody Ukraine war.
Dr Bradbury, who has degrees in Biochemistry and Medical Biochemistry and penned the book A Taste for Poison: Eleven Deadly Substances and the Killers Who Used Them, explained that the poison subjects its victims to a grim death.
He told the Daily Star: “It’s a nerve agent that works by interfering with signaling between nerves and other target organs like the heart and lungs.

“When people are exposed to this they have frothing mouths because they make lots of saliva and all the secretions in the airways get turned up.
“People start drowning in their own fluids and the heart rate goes completely out of whack because of the interference with the neural regulation. It’s a really nasty chemical.”
He added that the tyrant might use Novichok to spread fear against opposition in the eastern European country.

“It stays around for a long time. It’s really hard to detect – one of the problems after the Salisbury issue was the clean-up of the decontamination,” he explained.
“It stays in the area for years and years. It just hangs around, it breaks down very slowly and you don’t know where it is, it’s clear, it’s colourless, it’s odourless, and unless you’re right on top of it you could be fine.
“Millimetres away and you’re perfectly safe, but another few millimetres and you could die.”

Putin also attacked his enemy Alexei Navalny, a Russian opposition figure and activist, with poison during a flight from Tomsk to Moscow.
He was poisoned with a Novichok nerve agent and was hospitalized in serious condition, but survived the ordeal.
Bloodthirsty Putin has a wide variety of terrifying poison in his arsenal and has also been known to use killer polonium-210 to take out his enemies.
"One that I find really interesting is the polonium given to ex-KGB double agent Alexander Litvinenko in a pot of tea," Dr Neil added.
"It's amazing what people have used to mask the poisons, Litvinenko was given it at the Pine Bar in the Millennium Hotel in London, it was fascinating and i took my family to the bar and sat just a few feet away from where he had been poisoned."
Litvinenko, who died from the brutal poisoning in 2006, became yet another victim to the tyrant's brutal obsession with taking out his rivals.
He passed away with one million times the required amount to kill in his system, sparking the infamous image of him in his hospital bed.
His mouth was riddled with ulcers and he was unable to eat or drink, but the hero was still “very anxious” to make the point that “something illegal had been done.”
