Skripal case: Novichok suspects deny involvement


Russia’s RT television station has today aired an interview with two men suspected of targeting the Skripals with novichok earlier this year.

The suspects, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, have denied being agents or having anything to do with the poisoning.

Margarita Simonyan, the editor-in-chief of Russia’s state-funded RT, had earlier written on social media that she had met and interviewed the two suspects. “To my surprise they spoke in a fair amount of detail about what they do and how they earn a living,” she added.
