Putin Says He Knows Identities of Accused Skripal Attackers

Putin Says He Knows Identities of Accused Skripal Attackers”

The failed attack triggered a major diplomatic crisis between the United Kingdom and Russian Federation, with the British government alleging Moscow was responsible for their attempted murder.

"We hope they will turn up very soon and will tell everything themselves". Putin said they were civilians.

Putin and Russian Federation have vehemently denied having anything to do with the poisoning.

British prosecutors last week identified two Russians who they said were operating under aliases - Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov - who they said had tried to murder the Skripals with a military-grade nerve agent in England.

"We know who they are".

Britain's security minister, Ben Wallace, said on September 6 that Putin "ultimately" bears responsibility for the poisoning because "it is his government that controls, funds, and directs the military intelligence".

"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. "They should go to some media outlet".

They did a reconnaissance mission to Salisbury the following day before returning with poison concealed in a fake Nina Ricci perfume bottle.

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

'There is nothing special there, nothing criminal, I assure you.

Ms Sturgess died in hospital on 8 July.

It has further damaged already severely strained relations between Russian Federation and the West and has been a cause for solidarity at a time when Western officials accuse Moscow of seeking to cause rifts in relations between Western countries.

On March 4th, Novichok was placed on the front door of the Skripal house.

British police said the suspects, both about 40-years old, flew from Moscow to London on Russian passports two days before the Skripals were poisoned.

They said they would not formally demand the men's extradition, as Russian Federation does not extradite its citizens, but have obtained a European Arrest Warrant for the pair.
