Russian embassy says UK has not made extradition requests in nerve agent case: TASS

MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Russian Embassy in Britain said on Monday it had not received an official request from London to extradite two men it suspects of carrying out a nerve agent attack on British soil, TASS news agency said, citing an embassy statement.

“We do not trust such unverified bogus media reports at all,” the embassy said. The Guardian newspaper earlier on Monday was about to make such a request.
