Russian Federation really wants to convince you the Salisbury spies are gay lovers

In their sole interview last week, two men who resembled the suspects told Russian state-sponsored television that they had visited Salisbury twice but denied they worked for Russian military intelligence, known as the GRU, or had committed any crime.

Petrov and Boshirov also told Russian state-funded news channel RT they planned their trip to the "wonderful" city in Wiltshire after recommendations from friends.

Britain charged Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov last week with trying to kill double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, with the Soviet-designed nerve agent Novichok.

"The government is clear", Britain said, that the men "used a devastating toxic, illegal chemical weapon on the streets of our country".

"We have repeatedly asked Russian to explain what happened in March, and they have replied with obfuscation and lies", the official said.

"Of course, we went there to see Stonehenge, Old Sarum, but we couldn't do it because there was muddy slush everywhere", they told RT. They denied the British claim that they were Russian military intelligence officers, saying they work in the nutritional supplements business. "There's the famous Salisbury cathedral, famous not only in Europe but in the whole world, it's famous for its 123m spire, it's famous for its clock, one of the first ever created in the world that's still working".

Boshirov and Petrov said they called her because they needed protection and would like an apology from Britain. "What is our fault?" Two other people were affected and a woman, Dawn Sturgess, died in July after spraying herself with nerve agent after discovering the discarded bottle.

London pointed a finger at Russian President Vladimir Putin as "ultimately responsible" for the crime.

The New York Yankees won the series, winning 8-1, losing 11-0, and winning 11-1 to make up some ground on their rivals. Despite sitting on top for much of the season, the Boston Red Sox are expected to lose steam as the season progresses.

RT ran part of the interview on Thursday morning, in which Petrov said: "We are those shown to you in the (CCTV) pictures".

"I think they're just two guys who have been blamed for this - now they're in shock, they're scared, they don't know what to do".

The cathedral became a popular search on the website after it emerged Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, the two men Britain has accused of being Russian assassins, allegedly stopped by to see the historical structure and its 123 metre spire.

But what did they say and is it plausible?

"When your life is turned upside down in a moment?"

"We examine the market, look if there is something new - some biologically active additives, amino acids, vitamins, microelements", the two said.

A European arrest warrant has been issued for the two suspects, but British prosecutors say they will not ask Moscow to extradite Russian citizens because Russia's constitution forbids it. The police have set out very clearly the evidence against these two men. They are taken to Salisbury District Hospital, where they remain in critical condition.

When asked if British investigators could visit Russian Federation to question Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, whom London suspects of being involved in the Salisbury incident, Peskov said that there was a legal assistance mechanism based on bilateral agreements and worldwide law.
