In going public as the Russian men accused by London of carrying out deadly poisonings on English soil, Ruslan Boshirov and Aleksandr Petrov both expressed and generated disbelief at the same time. Their first public appearance, a September 12 interview with the Kremlin-funded RT channel, contained a few head-scratchers. While the two admitted that they were in Salisbury, England -- where former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, were found unconscious on a park bench on March 4 -- they gave a somewhat unconventional answer for making the effort to visit.
Their reason for traveling a quarter of the way across the globe to see Salisbury? To see the southern English town's cathedral. Boshirov added that the two wanted to see the "famous" cathedral's meter spire and clock.
It was a suggestion that many on social media, including Intercept investigative reporter Ryan Gallagher, weren't buying:. Some, like Telegraph Russia correspondent Alec Luhn, responded in all seriousness, noting London's allegation that the two men are officers with Russia's military intelligence agency:. And others, like freelance journalist Ned Donovan, mocked the statement with a string of mocking and satirical comments such as this:.
Boshirov and Petrov went on to explain that they had also expected to visit other nearby attractions, but their plans were thwarted. We got wet, took the nearest train and came back [to London].
CCTV footage of what appear to be the two walking in Salisbury on the day of the poisoning show little signs of slush or snow, as Max Seddon, Moscow correspondent for The Financial Times, pointed out on Twitter. Author and journalist Guy Walters did note there was snow in the area, but wondered why that would have deterred the two, offering photographic evidence of a Salisbury man dealing with the natural phenomenon:.
Walters also highlighted that the weather conditions apparently did not deter the two from walking an even greater distance to the Srkipal home, which they said in the interview that they might have approached.
