Russia’s military intelligence service have been connected to the Salisbury attacks

Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov (not thought to be their real names) are alleged to have carried out a nerve agent attack in Salisbury in March, which poisoned Sergei and Yulia Skripal.

British officials have linked the two suspects to a Russian organisation called the GRU (or Main Intelligence Directorate).

So what do we know about this secretive organisation?
