"There's nothing particularly even criminal about them, I assure you", he said, adding they were "civilians, of course".

Meanwhile, a minister has suggested airport checks were not good enough, as Novichok had been brought into the UK.

Viktoria Skripal, the niece of Sergei Skripal, said last week she did not know anything about the two men.

"We have repeatedly asked Russian Federation to account for what happened in Salisbury in March and they have replied with obfuscation and lies", Slack said. "Maybe later. Next week, I think", he was quoted as saying.

Mr Skripal was a former GRU agent, before defecting and aiding the UK.

"I want to address them [the suspects]". This would be best for everyone. "We are going to look in the come future", he added.

Trump Denies Revised Death Toll in Puerto Rico...Cue the Outrage
She said at the time that back-to-back hurricanes a year ago prompted "the largest domestic disaster response mission in history". A team of researchers at Harvard University announced in May that they believed Hurricane Maria's death toll was 4,600.

Putin's remarks appeared to be a denial that the men worked for Russia's military intelligence service, the Main Directorate, commonly called the GRU.

The elder Skripal, who was a Russian intelligence agent who switched sides, as well as his daughter, survived the poisoning and now live in an undisclosed location.

The pair were also charged for the death of Dawn Sturgess, who died after coming into contact with the toxic substance in Amesbury in June.

Yulia and Sergei Skripal were poisoned in March.

United Kingdom authorities have said the men arrived in the United Kingdom from Moscow on March 2. They also claim that the noxious agent was in a bottle that had been altered to make it "perfect cover for smuggling the weapon into the country and a ideal delivery method for the attack against the Skripal's front door".

Officers believe a modified perfume bottle was used to spray the door.

Investigators released a cache of evidence, including security camera images that captured the progress of the two men from an Aeroflot flight to the scene of the crime, and from there back to Moscow, the New York Times reported.
