A spokesperson for the United Kingdom government said the two men who appeared on RT were the same men suspected of poisoning the Skripals.
"Salisbury?" their interviewer asked.
"This is a touristic city", he said.
They told state-controlled outlet RT News that they were in Salisbury, where Skripal and his daughter were poisoned, because their friends had recommended its "famous cathedral". "Its famous Salisbury cathedral, famous for its 123m spire...the clock... the oldest of its kind that is still working".
The two men accused of carrying out a nerve agent attack on a former spy on British soil broke their cover Thursday to deny their involvement in the fatal mission and claim they had no links to the Russian military intelligence service.
