Skripal Novichok poisoning: RT editor hangs on Newsnight

The journalist who interviewed the two Russians suspected of the attack on Salisbury Novichok, hung up on a BBC presenter after & # 39; the way of the interview & # 39; was challenged.

In the interview on the state-run RT channel, the couple said they had traveled to Salisbury on the recommendation of friends.

Downing Street described these claims as "lies and glaring fabrications".

When asked by Kirsty Wark if RT was a propaganda tool for the Russian state, Simonyan said: "Your question seems to me to be a typical Western propaganda."

Shortly after she hung up.
