     TV SENSATION The Novichok attack suspects have been interviewed by Russia Today

British prosecutors last week identified two Russians, whom they said were operating under aliases - Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov - and whom they accused of being the so-called "novichock two".

Petrov and Boshirov claim to have been visiting the "wonderful town" of Salisbury, England, to see its famous cathedral.

When Simonyan seemed to express some surprise at this characterization of an English city that is not well-known overseas, Boshirov answered simply "Yes".

Confirming the timeline produced by police, they admitted they went to Salisbury on two days, to take in the sights of its famous cathedral and ancient clock. Those details are not common knowledge for most Britons, but they are available on the Wikipedia page of the cathedral.

Both men sounded distressed as they spoke about how their lives had changed since they were named in the United Kingdom as Russian intelligence agents who attempted to poison the Skripals. They were, they insisted, involved in the import of supplements and other items of interest to sports nutritionists.

The two men confirmed that they were the men pictured travelling to and from Salisbury in images published by Britain's Metropolitan Police.

In the men's first interview since they were named publicly they denied carrying women's perfume.

"The Foreign Office says it is 'obfuscation and lies.' Is it the same Foreign Office that claimed earlier that Petrov and Boshirov had passports in fake names?" "Buy tickets to London right now, it's just an hour's trip away by train", the firm tweeted on Thursday, adding a link to their product.

"We have repeatedly asked Russian Federation to account for what happened in Salisbury in March".

Woodward book goes on sale as ex-Trump aides push back
The book is billed on Amazon as "the inside story on President Trump, as only Bob Woodward can tell it". According to the book, Trump told his national security aide that USA is losing in Afghanistan.


A government spokesman said: 'The government is clear these men are officers of the Russian military intelligence service - the GRU - who used a devastatingly toxic, illegal chemical weapon on the streets of our country.

They said they wanted to go to Stonehenge but were prevented from doing so because there was "muddy slush everywhere" so they got wet and went back to London an hour after arriving, as there was an intermittent weekend train service.

An except of the full interview was shown on RT News on Thursday morning, and an additional transcript can be seen here.

"Well, we came there [to the UK] on 2 March, then went to a railway station to see the timetable".

They said they may have approached Skripal's house by chance but did not know where it was located. Boshirov said, referring to the small Nina Ricci vial which British authorities said had contained the poison. They said they had fallen victim to a "fantastical coincidence".

The Kremlin-backed station aired the interview a day after President Vladimir Putin said Russian Federation had identified the men sought by Britain and urged them to address the media.

The City Stay Hotel, where Russian suspects Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov stayed, is pictured in Bow, east London, on September 5, 2018.

The Skripal case has been likened by British politicians to the murder of Russian dissident ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko, who was poisoned with a rare radioactive isotope in a London hotel in 2006.
