British scientists at Porton Down have not been able to establish where the novichok nerve agent used to poison Sergei and Yulia Skripal was made, it has emerged.

I don't know where you're getting that. This isn't like a bomb or a gun where every manufacturer has their own signature. It's a chemical compound. It's going to show the same chemical makeup regardless of who made it.
