Russian firms are selling sick 'Novichok' products, including themed shirts, craft beer and vodka

Russian companies are selling sick joke 'Novichok' products despite outrage at the death of a British mother exposed to the nerve agent.

The latest item is a £22 T-shirt made by Moscow company Spare Skin, which promises buyers they can expect 'the love of beautiful women', 'brutality in the eye' and an 'exclusive and cool T-shirt'.

The company said: 'When we posted the design of the Novichok on Behance (social network for designers), we got a huge number of negative reactions. But at what speed are these T-shirts selling now.'

Novichok - the name of a lethal and illegal chemical weapon designed in Soviet times - is also being used as the name of a craft beer, a vodka, a brand of coffee, a cocktail in Volgograd, and vegetable oil.

You gotta love the Russians' sense of humor!
