"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.

EU lawmakers move against Hungary over rule of law
Rapporteur Judith Sargentini had to start them again when very late was the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban . If national leaders also support the motion, Hungary could face sanctions and be stripped of voting rights.

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.

'We have checked what kind of people they are. A man with the same name and birth date as Petrov's works for a Russian state company that produces vaccines.

NAN reports that on September 6, the United Kingdom charged two Russian men for the Novichok nerve agent attack on the former spy and his daughter in the English city of Salsibury, accusing them of being Russian military intelligence officers.

The CPS is not applying to Russian Federation for the extradition of the two men, as Russian Federation does not extradite its own nationals.

British officials said the suspects had escaped to Russian Federation and that the operation likely was authorized at the highest levels in Moscow, a conclusion that was backed by the USA and other allies.

Det Sgt Nick Bailey also fell ill after responding to the incident in the city of Salisbury. The Brits have leveled charges against them, while not having much in the way of expectations that they'll ever get their hands on them.

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.
