DS WE KNOW THEM Vladimir Putin says Russia has identified the Novichok attack suspects

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Wednesday that the Kremlin knows the real identities of the two men accused of attempting to murder a former Russian spy and his daughter on British soil.

Prime Minister Theresa May said police and prosecutors now believe the attack on Sergei Skripal was carried out by two Russian military intelligence officers who were nearly certainly acting with the approval of senior Russian officials.

Asked by the panel's moderator if the men work for the military, Putin replied that they are "civilians" and called on the men to come forward.

"I hope they will turn up themselves and tell about themselves", he said in comments that hinted they will make a public statement shortly. This would be best for everyone. There is nothing particular there, nothing criminal, I hiss you. "We'll see in the near future".

The Skripals spent weeks in the hospital.

That may be because the new iPhone XS has the same starting price, meaning Apple would have to offer the iPhone X at a discount. The exclusion of these older models also omits the 3.5mm headphone jack for once and all from the iPhone lineup.

Mr Rowley told police he found the box containing the small bottle and an applicator - all found to be counterfeit - in a charity bin. His partner, Ms Sturgess, applied some of the contents to her wrists and became unwell. Russian Federation has repeatedly denied any involvement in the incidents.

After the Skripals were poisoned March 4, Britain and more than two dozen other countries expelled a total of 150 Russian spies working under diplomatic cover. UK Prime Minister Theresa May has also said Britain will push for the European Union to agree new sanctions.

Russian authorities have identified the two suspects in the Salisbury chemical attack as its civilians.
