UK’s novichok interview allegations ‘absurd’

It is absurd to accuse Russia of lying about the two men accused of poisoning the Skripals in Salisbury, the Kremlin has said.

Commentators have expressed incredulity after Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov told the Kremin-funded TV channel Russia Today (RT) that they were in Salisbury on 3 March as tourists to visit the cathedral and nearby Stonehenge.

The Kremlin added that if Britain was to make a request to interview the two men, it would consider it.
