Putin says two Skripal suspects are civilians

Vladimir Putin says Russia finds Skripal Novichok poisoning suspects

British authorities charged Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov this month with the March attack on Sergei Skripal and his adult daughter, Yulia, in Salisbury.

President Putin says the two men suspected of poisoning Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury have been identified by the Russian state.

"Of course we have checked out who these people are", Mr. Putin said at a forum in Vladivostok in response to a question from a reporter. Vladimir Putin added that he hoped they would soon tell their story in public. This would be best for everyone. "There's nothing unusual or criminal there, I assure you. We'll see in the near future".

His intervention risks widening the gulf between Russian Federation and the United Kingdom over the attempted assassination, which triggered a wave of diplomatic expulsions by both sides.

British police believe the nerve agent was smuggled to Britain in a fake Nina Ricci perfume bottle and put on the front door of Sergei Skripal's house.

Speaking in the Commons, Mr Wallace criticised airport security for not being "as good at they might be", allowing the highly toxic nerve agent to be smuggled across Britain's borders.

British authorities said they were also poisoned with Novichok.

Russian Federation adamantly denies involvement in the poisoning, which had added to severe strains in ties between Russian Federation and the West. The prime minister's spokesman said: 'These men used a devastatingly toxic illegal chemical weapon on the streets of our country.The government has exposed the role of the GRU and its operatives.

Russian President Vladimir Putin dismissed any allegations tying Russia to the Salisbury attack, and denied allegations the two Russian nationals were spies under the Kremlin's orders.

Britain and dozens of other countries kicked out scores of Russian diplomats over the poisoning of the Skripals, and Moscow responded tit-for-tat with an identical number of expulsions. They came up with pretty much everything except a film of them planting the poison or a signed confession, but the Russians clearly have no plans to extradite them or even charge them with anything judging by how Putin is describing the situation. Britain spent years trying in vain to prosecute the prime suspects, Andrei Lugovoi and Dmitry Kovtun.
