Salisbury suspect’s alleged military academy commander says he was trained to be a soldier, not a spy

Anatoly Chepiga’s former commander at the Far Eastern Military Command Academy told the news agency RIA Novosti that media reports about Chepiga’s alleged role in the Salisbury attack are “a bit schizophrenic.” Alexander Borzhko said the academy trained Chepiga to be a soldier, not a spy, and he confirmed that Chepiga fought in Chechnya.
