Russian Federation will 'consider' United Kingdom request to interview Salisbury suspects

CCTV footage of the two Russian suspects taken near the Skripal's home in Salisbury
They denied their involvement in the attack, saying their appearance in Salisbury in March was merely a coincidence and that they were there merely as tourists.
The man, who identified themselves as suspects Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Borishov, told the pro-Kremlin news channel RT that they travelled to the southern English town of Salisbury to admire its cathedral and ancient clock.
Britain accused Russian Federation of responding with "obfuscation and lies" after the RT interview was aired this morning. While they may have passed the former agent Sergey Skripal's home, "we don't know where it's located", Boshirov said. "We'll see in the near future". They had stayed less than hour in Salisbury, they said, because of bad weather. The town was covered by this slush.
Replying to the interviewer's question why the pair went to Salisbury for two days in a row, Boshirov said that when they first got to the town it was snowy and they got wet so they made a decision to take the train back.
They have also commented on the British police's theory that they had brought a Nina Ricci perfume bottle full of the Novichok toxic nerve agent.
Brit authorities are attempting to find a medic nicknamed Dr Novichok and a fourth man who helped the duo target ex-spy Sergei Skripal, it is claimed.
"We have repeatedly asked Russian Federation to account for what happened in Salisbury in March", he added. "Today, just as we have seen throughout, they have responded with obfuscation and lies", the spokesman said.
He wrote on Twitter: 'Delighted that Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Borishov [sic] were able to see the world-class attractions that #Salisbury has to offer. "But very odd to come all this way for just two days while carrying Novichok in their luggage", Tweeted John Glen, the Member of Parliament for Salisbury.
"The maskirovka script writer must have had writer's block", said Philip Ingram, a former British military intelligence officer.
Asked about apparent inconsistencies in the two men's story, 44-year-old Muscovite Ivan Raspopov joked: "You know, Russian tourists often become rather odd in the West".
"We walked around, enjoying those attractive English Gothic buildings", Boshirov said. We know who they are, we have found them already.
"The possibility of them doing the same thing here can not be discounted - especially in light of them interfering in the 2016 election and Skripal", Frank Montoya Jr., a former top F.B.I. counterintelligence official, told The Times. They said they're partners in a business importing athletic food supplements from Europe.
"We're afraid of going out, we fear for ourselves, our lives and lives of our loved ones".
British intelligence services say the names are likely aliases, used for a mission in which they failed to kill Skripal.
The Skripals survived being poisoned by the nerve agent Novichok, but Dawn Sturgess - a woman not connected to the original attack - died in July after being exposed to the same substance.
