PUTIN: ‘NOTH­ING CRIM­I­NAL’ ABOUT POI­SON SUS­PECTS

Calgary Herald - - WORLD -

The two Rus­sian agents sus­pected of car­ry­ing out the Sal­is­bury nerve-agent at­tack are ex­pected to ap­pear on lo­cal tele­vi­sion to deny their role, af­ter Vladimir Putin said there was “noth­ing crim­i­nal” about the men. One of them ap­peared to prom­ise an in­ter­view to a Rus­sian state news out­let next week, but it was un­clear whether he was one of the pair wanted in Bri­tain.

Two Rus­sians known as Alexan­der Petrov and Rus­lan Boshi­rov have been charged with the at­tempted mur­der via nerve agent of Sergei and Yu­lia Skri­pal. Bri­tish au­thor­i­ties be­lieve their names are prob­a­bly aliases.
