A BOARD game that appears to allow players to recreate the steps of the Russian intelligence officers accused of poisoning Sergei Skripal has allegedly gone on sale in Russia.

The game, called 'Our Men in Salisbury' has been publicised this morning by Kremlin-funded news service RT (formerly Russia Today).

The broadcaster wrote: "For less than $2 you can now relive the experience of fitness instructors-cum-alleged GRU agents Ruslan Boshirov and Aleksandr Petrov, as they set off from Moscow to the English cathedral city."

The board game is described as a "novelty" by its designers, but there is no evidence online that any such game has yet gone on sale.

It comes a month after RT sent out chocolate models of Salisbury Cathedral as its corporate Christmas gift, in what appeared to be another publicity stunt in which the Russian government mocked the UK and Salisbury.

The game allows players to travel through European destinations, eventually ending up in London and Salisbury, as Boshirov and Petrov did last March.

Its board also shows pictures of emergency services wearing green hazmat suits and a fake perfume bottle, the same as that which contained the Novichok that poisoned Charlie Rowley and later killed his partner, Dawn Sturgess.
