Mishkin and Colonel Anatoliy Chepiga, the other suspect who used the alias Ruslan Boshirov, are believed to have carried out the March novichok attack after they were captured on CCTV in Salisbury. Amy Kellogg has the story.
Mishkin, 39, trained as a military doctor in Russia's intelligence agency GRU.
Both he and another man are wanted for attempted murder for a Novichok attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March.
Last month, Bellingcat named the first suspect in the poisoning scandal as Anatoliy Chepiga.
One theory suggested by British intelligence was that Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to publically punish the two men for both fumbling their assignment and getting caught.
The Bellingcat reportsays Mishkin, the doctor it said works for Russian intelligence, was born in 1979 in the Archangelsk District in northern Russia and graduated from the elite Military Medical Academies, where he was trained for medical work in the Russian navy.
"In the period 2011-2018, Alexander Mishkin travelled extensively under his new identity".

The US Justice Department also charged seven GRU officers in an alleged worldwide hacking rampage that targeted more than 250 athletes, a Pennsylvania-based nuclear energy company, a Swiss chemical laboratory and the chemical weapons watchdog.
