"Accusing Russia of lying after the declarations of two Russian citizens is. absurd", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

On March 4, Skripal and his daughter were found slumped unconscious on a bench in Salisbury after being exposed to the nerve agent Novichok.

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".

Those details are not common knowledge for most Britons, but they are available on the Wikipedia page of the cathedral. He called on them to contact the media.

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.

Russian Federation continues to deny the allegations with President Putin saying there was "nothing criminal" about the two men.

Last week, Britain announced charges against the two men.

The two men, who appeared deeply uncomfortable, identified themselves as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, the names British prosecutors said were used by the poisoners. "I mean people who often work undercover, including the intelligence services". We're ordinary businessmen trying to make it in the fitness industry.

Boshirov said his life had been turned "upside down", according to RT. Putin, speaking at an economic forum in Russia's Far East, described Petrov and Boshirov as regular citizens and definitely not "criminals".

He and his daughter Yulia became seriously ill, while a police officer on the case was also hospitalized.

The men had some physical similarities to the men shown in British police images.

"They explained everything simply and clearly yesterday, why they went there, what they were doing there, what the weather was like", he told AFP.

Despite claiming that they were just tourists in Salisbury the two men also say that they go to other places in Europe for their sports nutrition business.

They went on the record to say they had only been in the town to see the "wonderful city", but many are refusing to accept their story.

British police used surveillance camera footage from airports, transit stations, and elsewhere to outline the pair's movements.

"They then travelled on London public transport to Waterloo station and were in the area between approximately 6pm and 7pm. We'll see in the near future", he added.

Ms Simonyan said: "They told me that if they found those pictures, they would send them to me on WhatsApp". Leaving Salisbury at approximately 4.10pm and arriving in Bow at approximately 8.05 pm. They claim they were merely tourists visiting the English town of Salisbury at the time the poisoning happened.

They said they may have approached Skripal's house by chance but did not know where it was located.
