Putin: Russia knows real identities of suspects in United Kingdom poisoning case

Putin: Russia knows real identities of suspects in United Kingdom poisoning case

Asked by the panel's moderator if the men work for the military, Putin replied that they are "civilians" and called on the men to come forward.

The UK accused two men of attempting to assassinate a former Russian agent in England with military-grade nerve agent.

The elder Skripal, who was a Russian intelligence agent that switched sides, as well as his daughter, survived the poisoning and now live in an undisclosed location.

Britain's allies have backed it over the case, with the United States and other European countries expelling hundreds of Russian diplomats suspected of being spies.

They are accused of trying to kill Russian former spy Skripal and his daughter Yulia with the Novichok nerve agent in the English city of Salisbury on March 4, in an attack London believes was sanctioned by the Kremlin. "We know who they are already, we've found them", Putin said, according to The Moscow Times.

There is "nothing criminal" about the two men Britain suspects of carrying out the Skripal nerve agent attack in Salisbury, President Putin has said.

But Mr Putin said they were civilians and would tell their story soon.

'I hope they will turn up themselves and tell everything.

'There is nothing special there, nothing criminal, I assure you. "We'll see in the near future", he added.

A police officer who visited the home of the Skripals shortly after the attack, Nick Bailey, was also left critically ill from exposure to the substance.

Russian Federation has consistently denied any role in either incident.

Mr Rowley is seriously ill and was readmitted to hospital earlier this month after going blind. "The government has exposed the role of the GRU, its operatives and its methods, this position is supported by our global allies", the spokesman told reporters.

The Russian news agency Fontanka found a Moscow apartment where Boshirov is registered, but neighbors said they have never seen him, according to the UK's Guardian. The Brits have leveled charges against them, while not having much in the way of expectations that they'll ever get their hands on them.

Russian Federation has said the names of the suspects - as indicated in their passports - given to them by British prosecutors were meaningless.

In July, Mr Rowley came across the poison, which had been concealed inside a perfume bottle and left in a charity bin.
