Salisbury nerve attack suspects say they were in United Kingdom as tourists

Salisbury nerve attack suspects say they were in United Kingdom as tourists

RT ran part of the interview on Thursday morning, in which Petrov said: "We are those shown to you in the (CCTV) pictures".

They said, however, that they were surprised at the pair's failure to come up with a credible alternative story to counter a British police dossier that pointed to their involvement and to muddy the waters, a known Russian military deception tactic known as maskirovka.

It is absurd to accuse Russian Federation of lying about the two men accused of poisoning the Skripals in Salisbury, the Kremlin has said.

He and his daughter Yulia became seriously ill, while a police officer on the case was also hospitalized. A woman in a nearby town later died after her partner brought home a discarded counterfeit perfume bottle containing the poison.

"Our plan was to spend some time in London and then to visit Salisbury", Petrov said.

"Our friends have been suggesting for a long time that we visit this wonderful town", Petrov said.

"There's the famous Salisbury cathedral".

But yesterday the pair sensationally claimed in a farcical TV interview that they were simply in Britain on holiday, and travelled to Salisbury to look at the cathedral and Stonehenge.

Boshirov said they had gone to visit Salisbury Cathedral, noting its high spire. In a 25-minute interview, they denied working for the Russian military intelligence service, saying they are in the fitness industry. Only this week, we heard an official statement from London, which said that they did not plan to employ the legal assistance mechanism and send any requests to Russian Federation.

The attorney general and Department of Homeland Security then have another 45 days to assess whether sanctions should be imposed. Following those reports, the Treasury and State Departments can decide on appropriate and additional sanctions to impose.

Britain immediately rejected the pair's claims which they described as "obfuscation and lies" and maintained the assertion of police and prosecutors that they were members of the GRU intelligence agency. The affair has worsened Russian relations with the West, already under strain over Ukraine, Syria and other issues.

The two men were charged in absentia last week in the UK. They made two trips to Salisbury, once on Saturday and once on Sunday.

That is the story that Russian Federation wanted us to believe; the story of two individuals who supposedly were just wayward tourists in Britain and were just caught up in one of the most weird and strangest spying stories of the decade.

"From the very start we planned to go to London and, put bluntly, cut loose and have some fun", he said in the interview which was pre-recorded on Wednesday and broadcast on Thursday. Boshirov said. He went on to claim that if they had such an item in their luggage, it would have been hard to get past airport customs agents without arousing suspicion. "Isn't it silly for decent lads to have women's perfume?".

Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov carried out one interview with Russian state-sponsored network RT, in which they claimed they were visiting Salisbury as tourists.

On March 4, Skripal and his daughter were found slumped unconscious on a bench in Salisbury after being exposed to the nerve agent Novichok. But Salisbury and the ancient settlement of Old Sarum are far more niche destinations, to say the least.

"They are believed to have taken a similar route when they returned to London on the afternoon of Saturday, 3 March".

"Speaking of straight men, all footage features you two together", replied the interviewer, Margarita Simonyan.

"This was not a rogue operation", Prime Minister Theresa May told the UK Parliament last week.
