Pair accused of Novichok poisoning speak out
Two Russians appeared on state television saying they had been wrongly accused by Britain of trying to murder a former Russian spy
British prosecutors last week identified two Russians they said were operating under aliases - Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov - whom they accused of trying to poison Sergei and Yulia Skripal with a military-grade nerve agent in England.
The two men who appeared on Russia’s state-funded RT television station had some physical similarities to the men shown in British police images.
“Our friends had been suggesting for a long time that we visit this wonderful town,” one of the men said of the English town of Salisbury in a short clip of the interview played by RT.Published: by Radio NewsHub
