Charlie Rowley, 45, said Russia’s ambassador has agreed to try to arrange a meeting with the country’s president.
Mr Rowley’s partner Dawn Sturgess died after being exposed to the nerve agent used to attack former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.
He said previously that he “didn’t really get any answers” when he met the Russian ambassador.
Mr Rowley told BBC Wiltshire he wanted to meet the Russian president to “get to the bottom of things”.
He said: “That would be great, yeah, I’d like to see him, get some face-to-face and ask him on a one-to-one basis, just sort of tick it off the list, say I’ve done it.”
The Skripals were exposed to the nerve agent in in March last year.
Mr Rowley and Ms Sturgess, 44, fell ill in Amesbury months later after coming into contact with a perfume bottle believed to have been used in the poisonings and then discarded.
Ms Sturgess died in hospital in July.
