The Kremlin said Thursday it is unaware of its alleged employment of the suspected Russian agents wanted over the 2018 Skripal poisonings in Britain and fatal 2014 arms depot blasts in the Czech Republic.

Investigative journalist Christo Grozev said Friday that the duo identified as GRU military intelligence agents Anatoly Chepiga and Alexander Mishkin have been “promoted” to work for the Kremlin. Czech and British authorities have implicated the two, who operated under the cover identities of “Alexander Petrov” and “Ruslan Boshirov,” in the deadly incidents. 

“All I can say is that they’re in good health and work in the civil service. They got new jobs because they can no longer work as spies,” Grozev said in a live broadcast on jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny’s YouTube channel.

“They’re important representatives of the Kremlin, one might say, for different [Russian] regions,” Grozev added.
