"We're afraid of going out, we fear for ourselves, our lives and lives of our loved ones", Boshirov told RT. 13, 2018. Boshirov and Petrov denied the allegations.

When asked why they were in Salisbury, the men said: "Our friends had been suggesting for a long time we visit this wonderful town".

A European arrest warrant has been issued for the two suspects, but British prosecutors say they will not ask Moscow to extradite Russian citizens because Russia's constitution forbids it.

Both men on Thursday denied that they are GRU agents or that they were in possession of the Soviet-made Novichok nerve agent.

Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov have been accused by the United Kingdom of attempting to murder a former spy with a rare nerve agent in Salisbury, England.

They are accused by the United Kingdom of trying to kill Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March.

The men's surprise public appearance Thursday came a day after Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russian authorities know the identities of the two men, but insisted that they are civilians and there is "nothing criminal" about them.

The two men confirmed that they were the men pictured travelling to and from Salisbury in images published by Britain's Metropolitan Police.

"Delighted that Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Borishov were able to see the world-class attractions that #Salisbury has to offer". The officials also allege that the pair are military intelligence agents who were sent to the United Kingdom to poison the Skripals with the nerve agent Novichok.
