Two Russians with the same name as suspects in the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter with a military-grade nerve agent have told Russia's state-funded RT television station they visited Britain's Salisbury in March as tourists.

"The town was covered by this slush".

When asked by RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan whether they also had a counterfeit bottle of designer perfume United Kingdom police said contained the nerve agent, Borishov said: "Isn't it silly for decent lads to have women's perfume? We got wet, took the nearest train and came back (to London)". She said they were the "real" Petrov and Boshirov as far as she was able to check.

The nerve agent used to poison the Skripals was smuggled to Britain in a counterfeit Nina Ricci perfume bottle and applied to the front door of their house, according to Metropolitan Police.

"We have repeatedly asked Russian Federation to account for what happened in Salisbury in March and they have replied with obfuscation and lies", Slack said.

British Home Secretary Sajid Javid said on September 9 that Britain will catch the two men and bring them to prosecution if they ever step out of Russian Federation. The customs are checking everything, they would have questions as to why men have women's perfume in their luggage.

Mr Boshirov said: "When your life is turned upside down, you don't know what to do and where to go".

"We're afraid of going out, we fear for ourselves, our lives and lives of our loved ones", Boshirov said.

Britain has said the two suspects were Russian military intelligence officers nearly certainly acting on orders from high up in the Russian state.

Russian President Vladimir Putin denies the two men are military intelligence officers in the GRU, insisting they are civilians and there is nothing criminal about them. "We'll see in the near future".

The duo surfaced a day after President Vladimir Putin said Russian Federation had located Petrov and Boshirov, but that there was nothing special or criminal about them.

"We examine the market, look if there is something new - some biologically active additives, amino acids, vitamins, microelements", the two said.

RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said they had called her mobile because they wanted to tell their story.

"We pick up the most necessary, come here and decide how to deliver the new products from this market here".

The journey was part of their holiday, they said, though they had also been in Europe to do business related to sports nutrition.
