UK website Bellingcat claimed Monday the agent traveling under the name Alexander Petrov is a military doctor named Alexander Mishkin, a 39-year-old working for Russian military intelligence, the GRU.
According to the investigative site, “multiple sources familiar with Mishkin, both in St. Petersburg and in his native Loyga” identified Petrov as Mishkin. CNN has not independently verified Bellingcat’s reporting.
