Peskov: Petrov, Boshirov did not break law in Russia

MOSCOW. Sept 14 (Interfax) - No actions have been taken in regard to Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov because they did not break the law in the territory of Russia, presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.

"No actions have been taken in this regard, because there are no grounds for any. They have not broken any laws in the territory of the Russian Federation," Peskov said at a press briefing on Friday.

There is no knowledge either that they "have broken any laws elsewhere in the world," he added.

As to whether Russia benefited from the interview given by Petrov and Boshirov, Peskov said that was not the question.

"The UK has named two Russian citizens and accused them of being involved in this incident. These two Russian citizens have made their presence known," Peskov said.

"This is not a question as to whether Russia has benefited from their appearance," he said.
