'Poison suspects have nothing to do with Kremlin'
moscow - The two Russians who are suspected of the murder attempt on the former double spy Sergej Skripal and his daughter, according to Russia, have nothing to do with Vladimir Putin or the Kremlin. A spokesperson for the Kremlin told Interfax news agency.
Skripal and his daughter became seriously ill at the beginning of March. They were found to have been affected with a nerve gas called novitsjok. They eventually survived. Britain thinks that the poisoning has been carried out by two Russian men. They use the names Alexander Petrov and Roeslan Bosjirov, but it is not known if these are their real names. The two men themselves were interviewed last week by the Russian state television. They said they had nothing to do with the murder attempt. In their own words they were on holiday in Great Britain and they wanted to see the cathedral of Skripal's residence Salisbury.
