Fabricated UK Claim About a Third Skripal Incident Suspect

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

Phony Skripal incident accusations are no more credible than grade-B Hollywood fiction.

Britain’s fabricated narrative is a colossal hoax. Along with numerous other falsified accusations, it persists to continue demonizing Russia – US/UK public enemy number one.

No motive or credible evidence suggests Russian responsibility for the March 4 incident. Britain and Washington had clear motives and opportunities to stage the incident at a time and place of their choosing.

Father and daughter Skripal “miraculously” recovered from whatever harmed them – clearly not a deadly novichok nerve agent, a minute amount able to kill anyone exposed in minutes.

Russian citizens Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov were falsely charged with the incident, a third unnamed Russian citizen, now wrongfully claimed to be involved with what happened.

On Thursday, London’s Telegraph reported the latest chapter in the near-seven-month falsified official narrative.

The militantly Russophobic Theresa May regime wrongly blames the Kremlin for what happened to father and daughter Skripal it had nothing to do with.

Not a shred of credible evidence proves otherwise. According to the Telegraph, “(a) third Russian military intelligence officer who carried out a reconnaissance mission before the poisoning of Sergei Skripal has been identified by counter terrorism police and the security services,” adding:

The UK claims an unnamed GRU agent “visited Salisbury to help plan the attack before two of his colleagues brought weapons grade nerve agent into the UK.”

Britain’s Metropolitan Police refused to comment on the latest accusation. UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt falsely claimed Moscow wanted Sergey Skripal killed because they “got away” with poisoning Alexander Litvinenko in 2005.

Litvinenko died from polonium-210-induced acute radiation syndrome poisoning in a London hospital.

Russia was automatically blamed for his death, dubious witness testimonies lacking credibility the only evidence.

Inquiry chairman Robert Owen irresponsibly accused Putin of “probably” approving it, saying Litvinenko working for British intelligence at the time may have been the motive.

Legitimate legal proceedings would dismiss the accusation for lack of credibility. At the time, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova blasted the false charge, saying Moscow’s “position on the issue remains unchanged and is well-known,” adding:

“We regret that the purely criminal case has been politicized and has marred the entire atmosphere of bilateral relations” – shown by lack of objectivity and bias.

Following the February 2015 murder of Putin critic Boris Nemtsov, the Kremlin was automatically blamed for ordering it, no evidence cited proving it.

Nemtsov and Litvinenko are worth more dead than alive. The same goes for the Skripal poisonings, these incidents exploited for Russophobic propaganda purposes.

Britain’s MI 5 or 6 and the CIA were likely responsible for them. Falsely blaming Russia and Vladimir Putin personally facilitates political and economic war on the country, new pretexts invented to pursue it endlessly.
