United Kingdom repeats assertion that Russian Federation is lying

Attack The suspects believed to be travelling as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov

British police claim the names used by the men are aliases and there is evidence they are Russian military intelligence agents. From a credibility point of view, the British government must stick to that position, McCauley asserted.

Mr Skripal - a former Russian military intelligence colonel who betrayed dozens of agents to Britain's MI6 foreign intelligence service - and his daughter were found slumped unconscious on a bench in Salisbury in March.

The Russian government has repeatedly denied any involvement in the Novichok attack and have floated numerous conspiracy theories about who the "real" perpetrators might be.

The men denied the allegations and said they visited Salisbury on March 3 for tourism but stayed for 30 minutes only.

"Our friends had been suggesting for quite a long time that we visit this wonderful city", Petrov said in the interview. "But very unusual to come all this way for just two days while carrying Novichok in their luggage", Tweeted John Glen, the Member of Parliament for Salisbury. "It's famous for its 123 meter spire, it's famous for its clock, one of the first ever created in the world that's still working".

"We're afraid of going out, we fear for ourselves, our lives and lives of our loved ones", Boshirov said.

During the interview, RT quoted Petrov as saying they arrived in London on March 2 and tried to visit Salisbury the following day but were thwarted by snow and returned the day after. "But very odd to come all this way for just two days while carrying Novichok in their luggage".

British police say the first trip was made to stake out the city in advance of the attack on the 4th.

The Zizzi Restaurant in Salisbury where Skripal and his daughter ate on the day they were poisoned.

"We walked around, enjoying those lovely English Gothic buildings", Boshirov said.

They confirmed that they were the men in CCTV images released by British police last week showing two men in their 40s.

Police also debunked another theory, this time after Boshirov suggested CCTV photos of them walking through Gatwick arrivals had been faked. "It is London's official stance and we regret to say that it is impossible to make any assumptions, unfortunately", he said.

"We examine the market, look if there is something new - some biologically active additives, amino acids, vitamins, microelements", Boshirov said.

The two men's actual identities are a matter of dispute.

Two Russians accused of the nerve agent attack on former spy Sergei Skripal in the United Kingdom spoke out in their first interview to... And the exotic poison is also blamed for the death of Dawn Sturgess, 44, in July, after her boyfriend, Charlie Rowley, gave her what turned out to be a bottle of bogus perfume that contained the nerve agent.

The most glaring issue with their story is that they have not been quizzed on why traces of Novichok were found in their hotel room. "Why would a man have perfume for women in his luggage?" "We didn't have it".

When RT editor Margarita Simonyan asked the pair why they travelled together, implying they might be a gay couple, the men said their private lives were off limits to the media.

A still image taken from an undated video shows Sergei Skripal, a former colonel of Russia's GRU military intelligence service, being detained by secret service officers in an unknown location.
