"From the start, the Russian side appealed to the UK with a request to provide information on nature, circumstances of that case and any other details. No information has been provided through official channels. We cannot use information that comes from the media and we don't want to do so. Moreover, we will not engage in any explanations or comments on the topics that are thrown into the media," Peskov told reporters.
The spokesman was responding to a question on whether the Kremlin assumes that Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov, who are accused by the UK of attempting to kill the Skripals, are civilians and are really who they claim to be.
"I will not say what the Kremlin assumes," Peskov said.
Such allegations are yet another part of the Bellingcat investigation into the suspects of the Skripal poisoning case.
On September 5, UK authorities made charges against two Russian citizens, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, with regard to the Salisbury poisoning case.
Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned on March 4 with what the UK authorities said was a military-grade nerve agent. London claimed that Russia had orchestrated the poisoning. Russia has categorically denied these allegations noting, that the United Kingdom had not provided evidence to substantiate its claims.
The situation led to an international row, with scores of Russian diplomats being expelled from the United Kingdom and other EU countries. Moscow has expelled UK diplomats from Russia in response to Britain’s actions.
