Russian company to make chemicals under brand Petrov & Boshirov
The brand has already submitted an application for certification.
The Russian company Zolotoy Brend is going to register Petrov & Boshirov as a brand name, the Govorit Moskva radio station reported.
The trademark will be registered according to the standards of international classification of goods and services. If the decision is favorable, the company will be able to use the Petrov & Boshirov brand to produce chemicals for industrial and scientific purposes, as well as to launch a line of perfumes, clothes and women's accessories.
In addition, the name can be used to provide services of travel and security agencies, and also open gyms and bars, according to the documentation.
Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov got into the spotlight in early September after Scotland Yard accused them of involvement in the attempted assassination of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. The British police showed pictures of their movements around Salisbury, as well a Nina Ricci perfume bottle, which allegedly had been used to get the Novichok into the country. British Prime Minister Theresa May claimed Boshirov and Petrov were Russian GRU officers.
Later, Russian President Vladimir Putin commented on the allegations urging Petrov and Boshirov to tell the media what they had been doing in Salisbury.
The men gave an interview to the RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan, refuting their involvement in Skripals’ poisoning and any affiliation with the Russian special services. They said they were middle-scale businessmen trading in sports food. They added that they had come to Salisbury to see the famous cathedral on March 3 but spent only an hour and a half there because of bad weather. Then they went there again on March 4 for another few hours to "appreciate the English Gothic."
