"The whole situation is an incredible, fatal coincidence, and that's that", Petrov said.
The Skripals and a police officer fell seriously ill.
The men denied carrying women's perfume after police discovered a counterfeit bottle that contained a "significant amount" of Novichok and they denied knowing where the Skripals lived.
"I wanted to visit the WorldWide famous town of Salisbury since I was a boy". This time, they apparently managed to see the famous Salisbury cathedral. It's famous for it's 123m spire. "It's famous for its clock, one of the first ever created in the world that's still working".
Now, the two men have appeared on Russian TV in an freaky interview that included their denials - but also indirect questions about their sexual preferences, awkward stares and accounts of the weather in the quaint English town of Salisbury in early March 2017.
Britain and dozens of other countries have kicked out scores of Russian diplomats over the incident, and Moscow has responded tit-for-tat in the biggest East-West wave of expulsions since the Cold War.
The Kremlin reportedly intensified its efforts to find Russians cooperating with foreign intelligence agencies after relations with the West deteriorated following Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014.
Last week, Britain announced charges against the two men.
Wearing sweaters and appearing uncomfortable with the questioning, the two men claimed that they travelled as tourists to Salisbury and explained that they made two trips to Salisbury after bad weather hampered their first day trip.
RT's Margarita Simonyan who interviewed the pair admitted she did not believe them and was "still waiting" for their holiday snaps.
Britain is accusing Russian Federation of "lies and blatant fabrications" after the prime suspects in the Salisbury nerve agent attack claimed they visited the United Kingdom as tourists.
The pair spent no more than an hour in Salisbury because of the train times, Boshirov added.
"From the very start we planned to go to London and, put bluntly, cut loose and have some fun", he said in the interview which was pre-recorded on Wednesday and broadcast on Thursday.
Their second trip to Salisbury took nearly four hours on Sunday, and they stayed for about the same length of time.
"Delighted that Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Borishov were able to see the world-class attractions that Salisbury has to offer".
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.
They had been for lunch at a restaurant in central Salisbury on 4 March when they were found "in an extremely serious condition" on a bench outside the restaurant.
The two men admitted they may have passed Mr Skripal's house by chance "but we don't know where it is located", Mr Petrov said.
