A VICTIM of last year's Novichok poisonings has vowed to sue Russia for £1 million.

Salisbury's Charlie Rowley, who's girlfriend Dawn Sturgess was killed by the chemical last June, says he will take his fight to the courts.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "This has affected my life in a huge way. I want justice."

The city man, who was left in a coma for two weeks, has already hired a legal representative to help with his case.

Lawyer Patrick Maguire added: "Dawn and Charlie were both ­innocent victims caught in the crossfire of the Salisbury poisonings which rocked the whole community.

“Charlie continues to suffer serious side effects from the toxin he ingested, but says his greatest concern is uncovering the truth about what really happened."

As reported, the incident was part of the failed assassination attempt of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, 67, and his daughter Yulia, 34, last March.
