The full unedited interview still hasn't been published online but the RT anchors addressed the obvious question of why these two men would approach RT, a cable network whose audience is primarily people outside of Russian Federation.
Simonyan asked the men during the exchange whether they are GRU officers.
British prosecutors charged two Russian nationals, identified as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, last week for allegedly poisoning former spy Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia with a military-grade nerve agent in the city of Salisbury in March.
They said they may have approached Sergei Skripal's house by chance but did not know where it was located.
United Kingdom authorities believe the pair smeared the highly toxic chemical Novichok on a door handle at the Wiltshire home of former GRU officer Sergei Skripal, leaving Mr Skripal and his daughter Yulia critically ill. But Vladimir Putin has denied that these men had anything to do with the poisoning and that they're in any way attached to the Kremlin.
The Downing Street official added: "More importantly, they are deeply offensive to the victims and loved ones of this horrific attack".
During the interview, Petrov and Boshirov claim to be "middle men" dealing in nutritional supplements, fitness, and health foods.
London renewed its assertions that the men were officers of the Russian military intelligence service GRU and lied about their involvement in the poisoning of one-time Russian agent Sergei Skripal.
"On Saturday, 3 March, they left the hotel and took the underground to Waterloo station, arriving at approximately 11.45am, where they caught a train to Salisbury, arriving at approximately 2.25pm".
They claimed to have made the second trip because their first attempt to see Stonehenge was ruined by "slush" and snowfall.
A British government minister, who represents Salisbury, said on Twitter that the statements were not credible.
Photos released by Scotland Yard show the pair walking on a largely clear sidewalk, with a light dusting of snow, a day after a bigger snowstorm. The Skripals survived the March 4 attack in Salisbury, but a local resident later died after apparently having contact with the poison.
When asked if they were carrying Novichok with them, both Petrov and Boshirov laughed it off.
John Glen, the Parliament member for Salisbury, offered a wry comment about the pair's visit to his town, tweeting: "Delighted to see that Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov were able to see the world-class attractions that Salisbury has to offer. Why would a man have perfume for women in his luggage?"
"Maybe we were next to it [the house] but we don't even know where it is", Petrov said. When you go through customs, they check all your belongings.
"We spent no more than an hour in Salisbury, mainly because of the lags between trains".
Boshirov replied: "Let's not pry into our private lives". "We came to you for protection, but this is turning into some sort of interrogation", he said. We are going too far.
They appear somewhat uncomfortable in the interview. They often sighed in frustration and repeatedly gave extended, glaring looks.
The channel posted a 25-minute clip of the video in Russian on its website and said it plans to air more from the interview later.
Some in Russian Federation believed their appearance on RT had been staged.
