     TV SENSATION The Novichok attack suspects have been interviewed by Russia Today

Two men accused by London of poisoning former spy Sergei Skripal denied being involved with the murder attempt in a freakish Russian media interview on Thursday that Britain dismissed as "an insult to the public's intelligence".

Britain said the attack was nearly surely approved at a top level of the Russian government.

Anti-terrorist police have made it clear they believe GRU agents had used aliases for their attack on Sergei Skripal, 67 and his daughter Yulia, 34. The PM's spokesman said today: "The lies and blatant fabrications in this interview, given to a Russian state sponsored TV station, are an insult to the public's intelligence, and more importantly they are deeply offensive to the victims and loved ones of this horrific attack".

The two men, who appeared to be around 40, said they worked in the nutrient supplements business.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May says the two men are Russian intelligence officers, claims which they and the Russian government has denied.

The TV station recorded the interview on Wednesday evening, just hours after President Vladimir Putin said Russian Federation had identified the men sought by Britain and urged them to address the media. "What is our fault?" A woman in a nearby town later died after her partner brought home a discarded counterfeit perfume bottle containing the poison.

But Salisbury MP John Glen said their statements are not credible and what they have said does not match intelligence the United Kingdom has on them.

The two men say that they can't leave their homes in Russian Federation any more out of fear that they'll be recognised on the street. In the interview the two suspects said these were their real names.

"Our friends have been suggesting for a long time that we visit this wonderful town", Petrov said, while Boshirov added that they specifically wanted to see the cathedral's famous spire and clock.

"Where there is a controversy, they have to not give undue prominence to a particular side, so where we in the United Kingdom are saying these people were officers of the Russian state and assisted by the Russian state, RT have effectively majorly focused on the Russian perspective to the story", said Emma Banister Dean, a partner at Royds Withy King. But they denied any involvement with the poisoning.

The forensic tent, covering the bench where Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found, is repositioned by officials in protective suits in the centre of Salisbury, Britain, March 8, 2018. We planned a vacation in London, and went to Salisbury to see the cathedral, Old Sarum, and Stonehenge, but on March 3 there was heavy snowfall, so we couldn't get around town easily.

They spent weeks in hospital before being discharged.

"When your life [is] turned upside down, you don't know what to do and where to go. We pick up the most necessary, come here and decide how to deliver the new products from this market here".

Then, days later, President Vladimir Putin vouched for them as just ordinary guys and anything but would-be hit men. RT ran part of the interview on Thursday morning, in which Petrov said: "We are those shown to you in the (CCTV) pictures".

The interview "looks as though it was hurriedly thrown together in response to Putin's decision", said Mark Galeotti, senior researcher at the Prague-based Institute of International Relations and an expert on Russian security matters.

Putin expressed hope they would come forward and speak publicly.
