Putin: Poisoners? They’re just these guys, you know?

RUSSIAN president Vladimir Putin has escalated the war of words over the Salisbury nerve agent attack by claiming there is "nothing criminal" about Britain's prime suspects.

"We know who these people are, we have found them", Putin said. "We know who they are already, we've found them", Putin said, according to The Moscow Times.

"I hope that they will show up and tell everything themselves".

British prosecutors charged two Russian nationals, identified as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, last week for allegedly poisoning former spy Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia with a military-grade nerve agent in the city of Salisbury in March.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May said the two suspects were Russian military intelligence officers nearly certainly acting on orders from high up in the Russian state.

Russia's UN ambassador Vassily Nebenzia, meanwhile, told the UN Security Council that Britain's claim Russian Federation was behind the attack was an invention "out of thin air", and riddled with inconsistencies. There is nothing special or criminal there.

Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov (who have to be the two Russians with the most Russian names ever) were accused of the Sergei Skripal assassination attempt.

According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse , more than 115 people die each day in the USA after overdosing on opioids. Of the prescriptions for non-cancer pain, the most common conditions included back pain, diabetes and arthritis.

London and its allies expelled dozens of Russian diplomats after the poisoning, prompting a tit-for-tat response from Moscow and plunging relations to a new low.

Scotland Yard released photos of the men last week, saying they're wanted in connection to a poisoning attack on a former KGB agent.

British officials have said the men were agents of Russian military intelligence dispatched to kill Sergei Skripal, a Russian ex-spy who had given information to the British.

Putin also said that if the poison used were really a chemical warfare agent, death would have been instantaneous.

May's spokesman said later that Britain's attempts to get an explanation from Russian Federation have always been met with obfuscation and lies. "The government has exposed the role of the GRU, its operatives and its methods, this position is supported by our worldwide allies", the spokesman told reporters. Russian Federation kicked out a similar number of those countries' envoys.
