Sergei Skripal worked for Russian military intelligence. He acted as a double agent for UK. In 2006, Russian authorities convicted Skripal of treason. After his release in 2010, he settled in the UK, where he was poisoned in 2018.
The UK was quick to point the blame for the Salisbury attack – but its own allies are refusing to do the same. Reports suggest EU leaders gathering in Brussels are backing away from British attempts to condemn Moscow.
Drawing comparisons between Russia and Nazi Germany is disgusting and unacceptable, the Kremlin has said in response to recent outlandish remarks by Boris Johnson, who likened Russia’s World Cup to Hitler’s 1936 Olympics.
Theresa May will urge EU leaders to give Kremlin intel agents the boot, days after the UK expelled 23 Russian diplomats. The UK PM reportedly aims to shut down Russian intelligence networks in response to the Skripal poisoning.
From the MH17 case to chemical attacks in Syria to the Skripal poisoning, the West only throws accusations against Russia without giving any proof, the Russian Foreign Ministry said, adding that such an approach “will not work.”
Poisoned double-agent Sergei Skripal was of zero value to Moscow after he was handed over by Russia to Britain, Dmitry Peskov, President Putin’s press-secretary, said in an exclusive interview with RT.
Boris Johnson has raised the bar for UK officials’ barrage of accusations and criticism against Moscow to a new level, by suggesting that Russia hosting the World Cup is like Hitler hosting the Olympics in 1936.
