Russian Federation says photos don't prove its spy was linked to Skripal case

"Many people look alike, but I can not tell you who this citizen who was pointed out in this investigation is", Peskov said.

Russia's respected Kommersant daily has interviewed residents in a small village in the Far East who have identified one of the suspects in the poisoning of an ex-Russian spy in Britain as a senior Russian intelligence agent.

The Kremlin said on Friday a likeness between a Russian intelligence colonel and a suspect in the Skripal poisoning case does not prove they are the same person, comparing the resemblance to that of impersonators posing as Lenin. Both men denied the British claim that they were Russian military intelligence officers, and said that they work in the nutritional supplements business.

The Russian Foreign Ministry says the Bellingcat identification is "fake news".

"We don't know to what extent we can make any formal conclusions about who looks like whom, are they alike, where they lived, where they grew up", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call.

The website of the British investigative group Bellingcat, showing alleged photos of Col. Anatoliy Chepiga, is seen on a computer screen in Moscow, Russia, Sept. 27, 2018.

Maj. Gen. Alexander Mikhailov told the National News Service radio station that the data released by Bellingcat is so highly confidential that they couldn't have been leaked.

"Russia has only sought to obfuscate through desperate fabrication", she said. If so, it would add a personal element to the nerve agent attack.

The attack left Mr Skripal and his daughter critically ill, and Dawn Sturgess, 44, who was later exposed to the same nerve agent, died in July. In December 2004, he was arrested by Russian authorities, tried, convicted of high treason and sentenced to 13 years in prison.

Earlier this month, the two Russian men appeared on the state-funded RT channel, saying they were tourists and had nothing to do with the poisoning.

Britain, the United States and most European Union countries responded to the Salisbury attack with expulsions of Russian diplomats and financial sanctions on Russia.
