British investigators are searching for two alleged accomplices, Ruslan Bashirov and Alexander Petrov, suspected of poisoning former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury.

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

Boshirov and Petrov said they visited the southern English city of Salisbury in March, calling it a "wonderful town" and saying they wanted to see the famous Salisbury Cathedral. In the television interview, they denied they were GRU agents and claimed to work instead in the nutrient supplements business.

British Prime Minister Theresa May last week said the attack was "almost certainly" approved "at a senior level of the Russian state". They held official Russian passports issued in the names of Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov.

The men confirmed they visited Salisbury twice, on March 3 and 4.

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

Britain released CCTV footage and photographs showing the two men walking in Skripal's neighbourhood.

"I can today tell the House. that the government has concluded that the two individuals named are officers from the Russian intelligence services". When asked about recent trips to Switzerland they said that they were just looking for new innovations. Witnesses say cannabis wafted from their twin room in the two-star City Stay Hotel in Bow, East London, as they partied through the night.

"We got wet, took the train and came back [to London]", the pair told RT before adding that they returned to Salisbury the following day "to see the Old Sarum and the cathedral".

In the RT interview the men said they had both been in Salisbury and were the people identified in the security stills. "There is nothing special there, nothing criminal, I assure you".

Mr Johnson said an interview by Russian state broadcaster RT with the two men sought over the Salisbury poisoning was "satirical" and "really makes my blood boil".

Skripal, a former colonel in the GRU who betrayed several agents to the MI6 intelligence service in Britain, and his daughter were discovered unconscious on a Salisbury bench last March. The customs are checking everything, they would have questions as to why men have women's perfume in their luggage.

"Only this week, we heard an official statement from London, which said that they did not plan to employ the legal assistance mechanism and send any requests to Russian Federation".

A handout picture taken at Salisbury train station in Salisbury, west of London on March 3, 2018, and released by the British Metropolitan Police Service in London on September 5, 2018, shows Alexander Petrov (R) and Ruslan Boshirov. "I did not know anything about them before this situation, before all of this nightmare started".

"I'll say it now - those two guys on Russian TV are murderers". The men said that they were simply tourists on holiday, and had been interested in seeing the spire of Salisbury Cathedral and Stonehenge.
