MOSCOW, 14 Sep — RIA Novosti. Reaction of London to Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov's interview whom law enforcement agencies of Britain accuse on "business by Skripalya" is absurd, in the Kremlin consider unacceptable associations of the leadership of the Russian Federation with this business, the Russian President's Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov has said. "The position of Russia hasn't undergone any changes, it is absolutely unambiguous, transparent and consecutive. We consider unacceptable any associations of the leadership of the Russian Federation or the Russian state with what has occurred in Salisbury" — Peskov has told journalists. So he has answered a request to comment on reaction of London to Petrov and Boshirov's interview. "To reproach Russia in a lie after the performance of two Russian citizens – it is also absurd. These are ordinary citizens, they have no relation to the Russian state too" — the press secretary of the Russian leader has emphasized. Britain will take all measures in order that suspects of Sergey and Yulia Skripal's poisoning have appeared before the court if they it is sometime left the territory of the Russian Federation, the representative of office of the British prime minister Theresa May has told RIA Novosti on Thursday. He has said that "the lie and scandalous fabrications in this interview … are insult in relation to mental capacities of the public". On the fourth of March in Salisbury the former officer of GRU Sergey of Skripal and his daughter Yulia have been poisoned that has provoked large international scandal. London has said that Russia is involved in the incident, Moscow categorically denies it. Your browser doesn't support this format of video. Russia suggested to make joint investigation of an incident more than once, however London has ignored an initiative and has denied access to Skripalyam. Also the MFA has caught the British prime minister Theresa May in a lie. So, she claimed that poison was made in Russia. However in laboratory Porton-Down it was disproved. The prosecutor's office of Britain has shown on September 5 to Petrov and Boshirov charges under four articles, including in attempted murder of Yulia and Sergey Skripaley and the British police officer Nick Bailey. The prime minister of Britain Theresa May claims that suspects are the staff of GRU. Subsequently Petrov and Boshirov have given a 25-minute interview of RT and Sputnik in which have said, in particular, that they have visited Salisbury as tourists, knew nothing about Skripaley and work in the fitness industry.
