Putin says two Skripal poisoning suspects are civilians and not criminals

Putin says two Skripal poisoning suspects are civilians and not criminals

The British government has said Putin is ultimately responsible for the attack, a claim the Kremlin has furiously denied.

"I hope that they will show up and tell everything themselves".

He said that there was "nothing criminal" about the two men and that he hoped they would come forward and tell their own story, adding: "That would be better for everybody".

While police and prosecutors have announced they have enough information to charge Boshirov and Petrov, and officers have formally linked the attack on the Skripals to the poisoning of Ms Sturgess and Mr Rowley, the charges do not relate to the Amesbury pair and authorities say they are still investigating this second incident.

Russian Federation adamantly denies involvement in the poisoning, which had added to severe strains in ties between Russian Federation and the West.

The negativity of the situation probably would have been enough to sink the Canadiens' hopes for the season on its own. But with days to go before the start of training camp, the Montreal Canadiens have finally put an end to the saga.


We have checked what kind of people they are.

Prime Minister Theresa May said intelligence showed the poisonings were state-sponsored by Russian Federation.

"We know who they are, we have found them", Putin said. There is nothing special there, nothing criminal, I assure you.

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

Mr Skripal and his daughter Yulia were left critically ill after being exposed to the military grade nerve agent Novichok.

The Tottenham man played the full 90 minutes in the Nations League opener against Spain on Saturday, where England lost 2-1. "I don't think he should have been here for the two weeks".


A Russian man wanted by the United Kingdom over the novichok poisoning of the Skripals says he will comment on the case next week.

Sergei Skripal, a former colonel in Russia's GRU military intelligence service, and his 33-year-old daughter, Yulia, were found slumped unconscious on a bench in Salisbury in March after a liquid form of the nerve agent Novichok was applied to his home's front door.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has previously rejected May's accusations, noting both the unacceptable tone of her statement and the necessity for a thorough and unbiased investigation which has been so far made impossible by London's unwillingness to cooperate with Moscow.

Two others also fell ill: Sturgess's boyfriend, Charlie Rowley; and police officer Nick Bailey.

Interpol released a "red notice" for the two men and the European Union put out an arrest warrant that might come into play if they ever leave Russian Federation again, but that also sounds unlikely.
