Theresa May rebukes 'blatant fabrication' of novichok suspects

Former KGB agent Andrei Lugovoi turned his newfound fame into a political career

The U.S., France, Canada and Germany said they had "full confidence" in the U.K.'s assessment that the two suspects were Russian agents and that the operation "was with the greatest probability approved at high levels of the government".

"More importantly, they are deeply offensive to the victims and loved ones of this horrific attack", he said.

Assistant Secretary of State, Manisha Singh, told a congressional hearing that Russian Federation has not yet accepted demands that it come clean about its production of the Novichok nerve agent used in the March 4 attempt to kill former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, England.

Skripal, his daughter, and a police officer were left gravely ill by exposure to Novichok in March.

The two men, who appeared to be around 40, said they worked in the nutrient supplements business.

"Our friends had been suggesting for a long time that we visit this wonderful town", one of the men said.

"There's the famous Salisbury cathedral". It's famous for its 123 metre-spire.

The British police believe the men to be officers of Russian military intelligence, GRU, who may have travelled on false passports to London from Moscow in March.

Russian Federation has repeatedly denied any involvement.

James Slack, spokesman for British Prime Minister Theresa May, derided their claims as "lies and blatant fabrications". Russian Federation kicked out a similar number of those countries' diplomatic envoys.

They confirmed they are the two men shown in CCTV pictures issued by the Metropolitan Police, saying they own the clothes they were pictured in and even bought their shoes in England.

They claimed to have had nothing to do with the attack on Segrei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, who were poisoned when the pair were in Salisbury in March. We went through the corridor together, we always [do it] together.




The pair spent no more than an hour in Salisbury because of the train times, Boshirov added.

"The customs are checking everything", Boshirov said. "Isn't it silly for decent lads to have women's perfume?"

"Maybe we did (approach) Skripal's house, but we don't know where is it located".

Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, two Russians over the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, conducted a freaky interview Thursday.

"They said they would not go to the studio and only agreed to do the interview in her office". So they returned the next day.

The two men said they were exhausted and frightened by the impact of the Skripal case on their lives and made a plea to be left in peace. She said the interview was recorded on Wednesday evening.

"I'm frightened, I'm scared". We do not wish to do that.

He tweeted that he was "delighted" the men were able to visit Salisbury's "world-class attractions", but said it was "very unusual to come all this way for just two days while carrying Novichok in their luggage".

He expressed hope they would come forward and speak publicly.

"It could be a way of signaling defiance to the United Kingdom government, effectively saying, "There's nothing you can do about this", he said.

Moscow has refused to extradite the two men Britain suspects of killing Litvinenko, and one of them, Andrei Lugovoi, went on to become a Russian lawmaker.

The pair were identified by the British government as being responsible for the March attack on Russian former double agent Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter Yulia, 33.
