Russian Federation knows real identity of men accused by United Kingdom over poisoning: Putin

Putin, speaking at an economic forum in the Russian port city of Vladivostok, said Russia had found the two men, that they were civilians, and there was nothing special or criminal about them and that he hoped they would come forward and tell the world their own story.

The allegations are staunchly denied by the Kremlin and on Wednesday Mr Putin said the men had been discounted as members of his shadowy security network.

"I have seen nothing to suggest that has changed", the spokesman said.

Britain last week named two men as key suspects in the nerve-agent poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter.

The leaders of France, Germany, Unites States of America (U.S.A.) and Canada had also expressed "full confidence" in the United Kingdom's assessment that the two suspects in the Novichok attack, which took place in March this year, were officers from the Russian military intelligence service.

"There have never been and never will be such stupid people in Russian intelligence", journalist Nikolai Dolgopolov, who has written widely about spies, said on Vesti Nedeli.

Det Sgt Nick Bailey also fell unwell after responding to the incident in the metropolis of Salisbury.

British authorities said they do not believe Sturgess and Rowley were deliberately targeted but were exposed after touching the contaminated item left behind by the perpetrators of the attack on the Skripals. She later walked back that statement, expressing frustration that British authorities had not shared the files with their Russian counterparts, leaving Moscow "guessing" about what really happened in Salisbury.

Petrov and Boshirov entered the country on Russian passports and it's believed that those names are likely aliases.

Citing the GRU's reputation for strict discipline and hierarchy, May said of the attack on the Skripals, "It was nearly certainly also approved outside the GRU, at a senior level of the Russian state".
