Salisbury suspects nothing to do with Putin

Sweating, nervous, thuggishly coiffed and wearing similar sweaters, this is what Petrov and Boshirov (not their real names, the British say) told Margarita Simonyan, the editor in chief of the propaganda channel RT (formerly Russia Today): Yes, they are the men in the videos and photographs produced by British police.

British police claim the names used by the men are aliases and there is evidence they are Russian military intelligence agents.

The source said: "It's believed they could have met a handler who was working at the embassy and a fourth, the medic, might have had oversight of the whole thing to make sure they didn't risk ruining the operation by getting themselves contaminated".

The men seemed to be around 40 years old and wore nearly identical dark blue jumpers.

They are then accused of looking nervous, to which Boshirov responds: "What would you look like?"

Putin urged the two men to speak to the journalists.

Questioned on whether the pair were civilians, Mr Putin replied: 'Of course they are civilians'. Relations between London and the Kremlin, already frosty, plunged into crisis after the attack.

Skripal's attempted assassination has drawn comparisons with the poisoning of Kremlin critic Alexander Litvinenko with highly radioactive polonium in London in 2006.

The UK believes the two to be operatives of the Russian military intelligence agency GRU.

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

United were unsafe on counter-attacks though as Gracia's men left themselves exposed at the back while in an all out attack. The reply came from Andre Gray .

"Don't you think it's silly for straight men to have women's perfume with them?"

Petrov, asked what the duo were doing in England, said their friends had always been encouraging them to visit the "wonderful town" of Salisbury.

The pair were asked whether they had been in the vicinity of the Skripals' house, which is where police claim the suspects sprayed the Novichok. "You should ask [the United Kingdom police]".

The men denied trying to kill Skripal and his daughter Yulia with the Soviet-designed Novichok nerve agent. Experts from the British chemical laboratory in Porton Down failed to identify the origin of the agent that poisoned the Skripals.

"The customs are checking everything". They were, they insisted, involved in the import of supplements and other items of interest to sports nutritionists. According to them, they are businessmen not linked with the GRU and have nothing to do with the Skripal case.

"The last time Russian military claimed to be on holiday was when they invaded Ukraine in 2014", Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt tweeted.

"When your life is turned upside down in a moment?"

Ofcom said in April that since the Salisbury attack they had observed "a significant increase in the number of programs on the RT service that we consider warrant investigation as potential breaches of the Ofcom Broadcasting Code".

"This is not an interrogation", Boshirov said. He called on them to contact the media.

"We were drenched up to our knees", Boshirov said.

Social networks ran amok, with many deriding what they said was a flimsy attempt to cover the tracks. Write to us in the Comments Section.
