Salisbury nerve attack suspects say they were in United Kingdom as tourists

Salisbury nerve attack suspects say they were in United Kingdom as tourists

"A tourist town", Boshirov said.

"There's the famous Salisbury Cathedral, famous not just in Europe, but in the whole world", he said. When asked about recent trips to Switzerland they said that they were just looking for new innovations.

RT's Simonyan noted during the interview that the United Kingdom authorities have accused the men of being members of Russian military intelligence.

Two Russians resembling men Britain accuses of jetting to England to try to murder a former spy said on Thursday that they were innocent tourists who had flown to London for fun and visited the city of Salisbury to see its cathedral. Russian Federation has denied any involvement.

Earlier this week, President Vladimir Putin dismissed the claim, saying the two were civilians with no criminal background.

Detectives believe it is likely the two Salisbury suspects, thought to be aged around 40, travelled under aliases and that Petrov and Boshirov are not their real names. The UK pinned the blame on Russia for the incident, with Prime Minister Theresa May claiming that Petrov and Boshirov were members of the GRU, Russia's military intelligence service. As Oleg Kashin, a Russian journalist, noted: "It's become a simple test of loyalty: in order to protect these guys, you need to make overwrought jokes about gays".

When pressed to describe their work in general terms, he said, "To cut a long story short, we're in the fitness industry".

"RT is already under intense scrutiny and this is certainly not going to help matters", said John Enser, a partner in media law at CMS in London. From a credibility point of view, the British government must stick to that position, McCauley asserted.

United Kingdom authorities say the pair smeared Novichok on a door handle at the Wiltshire home of former GRU officer Sergei Skripal, leaving him and his daughter critically ill.

There is "sufficient evidence" to charge Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov over the attack in Salisbury, British police and prosecutors say.

‘60 Minutes’ Chief Fager Fired From CBS After Violating Policy
Moonves, the longtime head of CBS, stepped down Sunday night following numerous allegations of sexual misconduct . Rose had been a co-anchor since 2012 on " CBS This Morning " and a contributing correspondent on " 60 Minutes ".

He said only a comedian would be able to properly evaluate the interview.

"Only this week, we heard an official statement from London, which said that they did not plan to employ the legal assistance mechanism and send any requests to Russian Federation".

"Ofcom looks at these cumulatively", Stephens said, "but there comes a point when there are so many breaches that they aren't regarded as a fit and proper person to carry a license".

As for the woman who interviewed them? The two Russians entered the United Kingdom on an Aeroflot flight on March 2, departing March 4.

London believes that Putin personally sanctioned the attack.

"They then travelled on London public transport to Waterloo station and were in the area between approximately 6pm and 7pm".

They say the goal of the men's visit to Salisbury on 3 March was reconnaissance, and on 4 March they returned to apply Novichok to the Skripals' front door.

They returned the following day when it was warmer to see the cathedral. We arrived in Salisbury on March 3 and tried to walk through the town, but we lasted for only half an hour because it was covered in snow.

"On Sunday, 4 March, they made the same journey from the hotel, again using the underground from Bow to Waterloo station at approximately 8.05am, before continuing their journey by train to Salisbury".

British police named the two men as suspects in the Novichok poison attacks of Sergei Skripal, his daughter Yulia Skripal, as well as two bystanders this past March.
