British Prime Minister Theresa May said the two suspects are members of the GRU, Russia's military intelligence service, who carried out a mission nearly certainly approved at a senior level of the Russian state.
Two days later, police say they sprayed the nerve agent, Novichok, on the front door of Mr Skripal's home in the Wiltshire city of Salisbury, before travelling home to Russian Federation later that day.
Alexander Petrov - suspected of the Skripal attack alongside Ruslan Boshirov - previously visited Britain from February 28 to March 5, 2017, reports Russian media.
"We have full confidence in the British assessment that the two suspects were officers from the Russian military intelligence service, also known as the GRU", the statement added.
Wallace's statement goes further than that of May, who did not explicitly blame Putin in her statement to parliament, stating: "The GRU is a highly disciplined organisation with a well-established chain of command".
The poisoning was "not a rogue operation" and was "almost certainly" approved at a senior level of the Russian state, she said.
British Ambassador Karen Pierce will present the latest findings on the poisoning of Russian former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in the city of Salisbury.

It comes just weeks after Hurricane Lane brought "almost biblical rains" to the Big Island and also left parts of Oahu flooded. At its present course and speed, the center of Florence will likely approach the SC or Georgia coastline on Thursday or Friday.
Zakharova also said Moscow had asked the British embassy to let it examine fingerprint records that Russian nationals have to provide to obtain a British visa. "I don't understand why this was done and what sort of signal the British side is sending".
The incident literally mocked Theresa May's power and thus its reflex action triggered the dismissal of 23 suspected Russian agents in the UK. The affair has worsened Russian relations with the West, already under strain over Ukraine, Syria and other issues.
"We got a swift response in March and we have done so again and we are thankful for that support", he said.
Sergei Skripal was a granted refuge in the United Kingdom following a 2010 spy exchange between the US and Russian Federation. Looking at the seriousness in the matter, May has thus called an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council on Thursday and will ask world leaders to back Britain's stand against Russian Federation.
Former GRU officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were left critically ill after being exposed to the military grade nerve agent Novichok in Salisbury in March.
Tests were carried out on May 4 on that room and it was "deemed safe", Basu said. They flew out on March 4, hours after the Skripals were found unconscious.

In July, he tweeted that a British diver who helped with the rescue of a Thai soccer team trapped in a cave was a " pedo guy ". After Rogan confirmed that the product was indeed legal to consume in California, Musk reached for the blunt and took a puff.
Police said they were still not absolutely certain that the bottle found by Rowley was the bottle used to apply Novichok to Sergei Skripal's front door. They are also charged with illegal use and possession of a chemical weapon.
Prosecutors have revealed that they have not applied for the extradition of the two men, as the Russian constitution prevents such an act.
Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia survived nerve-agent poisoning in Britain after spending weeks in hospital. She has criticized London for turning down Moscow's request to see the case files.
"We have ascertained exactly who was responsible and the methods they used", Fleming told the Billington Cyber Security Conference according to extracts released by his office.
