The Exposed Skripal Poisoning Hoax

by Stephen Lendman ( – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Only the uninformed, guilty parties, and complicit scoundrels believe the official narrative, exposed as a Russophobic Big Lie, falsely laying blame where it doesn’t belong – Washington and Britain responsible for what happened.

Sergey and Yulia Skripal are out of critical condition, responding well to treatment, improving markedly, recovering from whatever harmed them.

Days earlier, Salisbury District Hospital Dr. Christine Blanshard explained Yulia was “conscious and talking,” no longer in critical condition, her health steadily improving.

On Friday, she said Sergey “is responding well to treatment, improving rapidly and is no longer in a critical condition,” adding:

“As Yulia herself says, her strength is growing daily, and she can look forward to the day when she is well enough to leave the hospital.”

It’s unclear precisely when. She’s able to talk, and ingest food normally.

The official military-grade nerve agent poisoning narrative was exposed as a geopolitical hoax.

Salisbury District Hospital and Dr. Christine Blanshard haven’t so far explained the cause of their illness – perhaps silenced by Theresa May’s government.

Once they’re able to speak freely in public, more will be known. If Russian doctors are able to examine them, especially Yulia if and when she returns home, they may be able to establish what harmed them.

They’ve been ill since found unconscious on a bench near The Salisbury Maltings shopping center on March 4.

It’s unclear what they’ve been treated for, clearly not a military-grade nerve agent, despite official reports otherwise.

On March 29, Britain’s National Health Service said Yulia was recovering. On April 5, UK police said, she regained consciousness over a week ago, her strength “growing daily.”

On April 6, Dr. Blanshard explained Sergey is improving rapidly like Yulia.

Britain continues refusing to answer Russian questions about the incident, stonewalling efforts to cooperate, clinging to the Big Lie unravelling in plain sight, aiming to prevent public exposure of its hoax so everyone knows the truth.

Moscow’s envoy to the OPCW Alexander Shulgin said “(w)e insist (on an open and honest evaluation of what happened) so that the investigation should be truly transparent, comprehensive and unbiased and necessarily involve Russian experts.”

Washington and Britain want them excluded to prevent truth and full disclosure on what happened.

The Skripals weren’t poisoned by a military-grade nerve agent at home or anywhere else.

The Big Lie continues evaporating in the light of day, mounting evidence disproving the official narrative, the harebrained scheme cooked up by incompetent Russophobes.

They’ve been outsmarted and exposed as liars, important for Russia to keep stressing.
