> We're not buying your denials. That's after the Kremlin responded to allegations that two military intelligence officers carried out a state sponsored nerve agent attack on British soil. Moscow saying the UK's allegation was unacceptable, and that Russian leadership involvement was out of the question.
But at the UN Security Council on Thursday, US Ambassador Nikki Haley took Russia to task.>> Rather than accept responsibility for its actions, the Russian government has offered only denials and counter accusations. Anything to deflect attention and detract from its guilt.>> On Wednesday, British authorities identified the suspects in the Salisbury attack as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, though they said those names were probably aliases.
>> Officers from the Russian Military Intelligence Service.>> The pair charged in Absentia with the attempted murder of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. Police also laid out in comprehensive detail Petrov and Boshirov's movements, including the hotel they stayed in and where traces of the nerve agent Novichok were later found.
CCTV images showed Petrov and Boshirov in the vicinity of Skripal's home on the day he and his daughter were found slumped on a bench in the city of Salisbury. Police believe they used a counterfeit Nina Ricci perfume bottle to spray Novichok on Sergei Skripal's front door. The suspects flew back to Moscow that day.
At the UN, Halley said the international community now needs to help Britain find the suspects.>> Better yet, why doesn't the Russian government turn these two murderers over to British authorities?
