Russian travel company advertises tours to Salisbury after novichok poisoning | Daily Mail Online

How could 2 gay men miss a 400ft spire?

Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov flew from Moscow to Heathrow and took the train to Salisbury where they put deadly nerve agent novichok on Sergei Skripal’s door-handle before flying home.

When online speculation began over their sexuality, interviewer 38-year-old Margarita Simonyan – who is head of the Kremlin ‘propaganda’ channel – retorted: ‘I do not know if they are gays or not.

‘They are quite fashionable – with little beards, hair cuts, tight pants, sweaters tight over big biceps. They did not harass me.

‘Anyway I’m already out of the harassable age. Still, I poured them cognac for courage.

‘During the interview I told them that the world least of all worries with the question if they slept in one bed or not.’

The pair suggested they were ordinary tourists wanting to see – among other sights – Salisbury cathedral.

The debate over their sexuality drew attention away from whether this pair were using alias names when they visited Salisbury, as Britain has argued.

The report, classified for 60 years, details familiar fears such as black cats with more involved customs, such as road bucket etiquette.

Just a few! This is a guide to socially self inflicted neurosis.

It is not good to meet a funeral procession. Same is true of meeting a priest.
