Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said he ‘had no idea’ about evidence reported confirming the Skripal poisoning suspect was indeed a GRU colonel and ‘will look into it’.

Skripal Suspect Boshirov Identified as GRU Colonel Anatoliy Chepiga

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Thursday that he knows nothing about anyone named Anatoly Chepiga — the military intelligence colonel investigative reporters say is the real identity of Salisbury attack suspect “Ruslan Boshirov.” Peskov redirected journalists’ questions to the Russian Defense Ministry, while promising to review the reports about Chepiga.

“Like you, we’re just learning about this investigation released in the media that talks about certain people resembling certain other people,” Peskov told reporters. “We are operating on information announced by the president and later repeated by the civilians themselves [‘Alexander Petrov’ and ‘Ruslan Boshirov’],” Peskov told reporters, reported Russian news outlet Meduza.
