DIS remain rather more attached to the truth than MI6, so when Defence Minister Gavin Williamson tweeted out a thrilled endorsement of Bellingcat’s work on Colonel Chepiga, DIS urgently advised that he delete it. Which he did.
https://www.craigmurray.org.uk/archives/2018/09/spy-games/

Which is not to say DIS are sure it is not Chepiga; rather they believe – as would anyone with half a brain – that the Bellingcat photo falls a long way short of proof. The British security services have been unable to stand up the ID with facial recognition technology. The experts are describing the Boshirov/Chepiga identification as “possible”.

I have this information from an impeccable Whitehall source, who told me there is a concern in the security services that runs like this. They genuinely believe Boshirov and Petrov are GRU agents and the would-be assassins. (I judge that my source themself believes the security services really do think this). Bellingcat, while they are sometimes fed security service material, did not in fact get fed the Chepiga material by the CIA or MI6, whether or not through a cutout. The security services are worried the Chepiga ID may be a blind alley fed to Bellingcat’s sources by the FSB. If the UK government endorses it, this could be followed by the Russians producing Chepiga and apparently discrediting the entire British narrative.

Hence the fact no charge has been laid against Chepiga, and the charges are still in the name of “Boshirov”, plus the fact that no British minister or official has named Chepiga, with only the fool Williamson stepping out of line and being slapped down.

Please note I am not endorsing the views and beliefs of the British intelligence services; I am reporting them.

Russia is fascinating at the moment. Komsomolskaya Pravda reports Ministry of Interior identification experts unofficially endorsing the Chepiga/Boshirov identity. Now there is no way these experts in the Ministry of the Interior – who would not be hard for the authorities to single out – would have done that for Komsomolskaya Pravda without an official nod. Either the Russians are indeed egging on the British into a false identification, or some inter-agency rivalry is afoot in Russia. This follows on the very open report in Kommersant – which is very close to Putin – that opinion was divided in Chepiga’s home village.

None of which brings us an awful lot closer to the truth of what happened in Salisbury, which I suspect is a great deal more complicated than any official narrative. But it is a fascinating peek into a shadowy world most people never see inside, with which I was once familiar.

SKRIPAL CASE: ISRAELI EXPERT ON THE WORK OF THE SPECIAL AGENTS
Date of publication: 28 09 2018, 12:05
https://en.news-front.info/2018/09/28/skripal-case-israeli-expert-on-t he-work-of-the-special-agents/

An Israeli expert on international terrorism, writer Alexander Brass, shared his view on the case of the Skripals poisoning in Salisbury. Brass draws parallels between the work of the special services of Israel and Russia – he believes that if to compare the British version with the practice of the special agents, then the absurdity becomes obvious.
“Alexander, so what, in your opinion, happened in Salisbury?”
-There was a rough provocation by the British special services. In my opinion, this is obvious.
– Why do you think so?
“There’s a lot of stupidity on stupidity.” The story with Petrov and Boshirov does not hold up any professional peer review. According to the Brits, the Skripals were poisoned by GRU agents (this is what the department is called, although this is now the Main Directorate of the RF General Staff).
I want to explain how the special services work. If you need someone to eliminate, then this is a very serious operation, which is being prepared for a long time. A very significant material and human resource is allocated. We are talking about dozens of employees. On the territory of this state, an “advanced command post” is being created.
In the operation, a technical support group, a logistic group, a cover group, an external surveillance group and a group of performers are involved.
The performers themselves appear at the very last moment. They do not go anywhere, lighting up on cameras, do not use public transport, but move on rented cars, which they do not rent themselves. And the more they will not stop in hotels, but will live on safe houses provided by the logistics group.
Such groups do not come under the passport of their country, do not go to the embassy for obtaining a visa, leaving fingerprints. This is complete nonsense. Professionals do not work that way.
If the GRU acted, both the killers and the other participants in the operation would come to the UK on the passports of other countries that have visa-free relations with it. Here, two alleged GRU officers go to the embassy, ​​leave their fingerprints there, get a visa, stop at the hotel, pass under all the cells. This you will not find even in ladies’ detective novels.
– Maybe it is unprofessionalism associated with the degradation and decay, which after the collapse of the Soviet Union took place in all structures and institutions of society, including in the special services? Lost skills, methods, no one to teach young people. There is such an opinion.
– This is an opinion at the level of kitchen conversations. Where did the armed forces and the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation manage to raise such a “bardak” to such a level as they could organize the World Cup and the Olympics at such a high level? The GRU has always been and remains one of the most professional and most intelligent intelligence agencies in the world.
If the GRU decided to eliminate Skripal, then I have a question: why was the “Novichok” used? This is not a remedy, it’s a chemical weapon of mass destruction. It’s like dropping an atomic bomb on a city to kill one criminal. When special services eliminate an object, they always try to do it so that no autopsy shows that he was poisoned.
– Can you give examples?
– I can give many examples. In 1978, the well-known international terrorist Vadia Haddad, one of the founders of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), was killed. “Mossad” did not take responsibility for this, but sewed in a bag you can not hide. A potent biological poison was mixed with chocolate. Within three months he died of a painful and incomprehensible illness in the GDR clinic. His autopsy was conducted at the University of East Berlin. No trace of poison was found. The doctors assumed that he died of leukemia.
– How did you know that he was killed by Mossad?
– Information about this began to leak a few years ago. It came from Algeria. One of the former Mossad agents during another trial gave evidence that he witnessed how this happened, calling the specific names of the performers. This man also confirmed that he was a participant in this operation. This information was also confirmed by other, non-overlapping sources.
– Were there any cases when the Mossad operation ended unsuccessfully and the enemies of Israel were still alive?
– Take the last unsuccessful attempt of the Israelis to kill Khaled Mashaal, one of the leaders of the terrorist organization Hamas. He would have been killd if he had not been given an antidote at the last minute.
Everything happened on September 25, 1997 on one of the streets of Amman – the capital of Jordan. Just some passer-by, who was next to Mashaal, “accidentally” stumbled and splashed the liquid from the can of Coke to his neck. The next day Mashal would have died of a heart attack, and no traces. But the performers were seized on the spot. After that, the King of Jordan Hussein demanded that Israel provide an antidote, and in return promised to release Israeli agents.
– That is, substances that leave no traces are not detected by expertise and imitate death from the disease, the secret services have long been known?
– That’s it. Could the GRU not have been able to use some other poison, and not the “Novichok”, which leaves traces everywhere? If such technologies were in the special services already in the 1950s, do not the GRU have them today?
Let’s talk about the cameras. The UK on this some kind of fad. In no country in the world there is such a number of surveillance cameras per capita.
If I’m not mistaken, about one camera for 15 people. Literally every meter is looked through. MI5, the British counterintelligence service, is considered one of the best in the world. And if Britain took care of Skripal, he was very well guarded. At least his house was hung with all the cameras, which are only possible.
If, according to MI5, these agents visited Salisbury, they came to the house of Skripal and coated the door handle with this substance – so show the records from the cameras! How can it be that it was at this point that the cameras suddenly turned off?
“But maybe these agents found the cameras and turned them off?”
“If you say that the GRU has deteriorated so badly that it has lit up everywhere and left its mark, why did this degraded intelligence agency manage to turn off the surveillance cameras near the Skripal house at the right time?” Where is the logic?
– When our agents killed the Chechen terrorist Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev in Qatar, they got caught and were captured by the local police. True, they carried out the task …
“And how many Israeli agents were arrested?” This does not mean degradation. I do not know what happened after the collapse of the USSR in the GRU, but I know what happened in the Foreign Intelligence Service, since I had been friends with one of the very high-ranking officers of this service for many years in retirement. We had very close, friendly relations with him for many years. Unfortunately, he died a few years ago.
He told me that the degradation of the special services is only an appearance. He retired, because he already had years of service and he did not agree with the mess that was going on in the country. But there was no mess in the secret services! Who wanted to – left. But was there a leak of information? Have they discovered an agent network? Agents of Soviet special services worked all over the world. Have any of them suffered? No one. The mess can be anywhere, but not in the special services.
– Let’s admit. All this really looks strange – first let out Skripal, then kill him. Would not it be easier to just leave him in jail?
– Now about the personality of Sergei Skripal himself. The main version, which is voiced by the British side, is revenge. But in special services there is no such thing as revenge. Neither the Israelis, nor the Russians. Only the Cubans had it. We must understand that the special services are a very practical organization. Why revenge? A person is eliminated only when he can cause real harm. The Skripal has already done harm. He could not do more harm.
– For example, as a lesson to other potential traitors, no?
– No. I once asked my acquaintances who worked in your special services (I have never had any contact with active staff, only with retirees): “Why did not Kalugin be killed?” And they answered me with a counter question: “Why haven’t you eliminated the defector? “I said: he has already done harm. To eliminate him, it is necessary to develop a very serious operation, to send people, people should risk their lives. For the sake of what – for the sake of revenge? They say: “For the same reason, we do not touch Kalugin and do not touch anyone.” Israelis are not even exterminated by former terrorists. At the moment when the terrorist stops terrorist activities, regardless of what he did before, he is left alone. The only ones who were persecuted to the end were Nazi criminals.
– There is an opinion that he was eliminated because he taught at the counterintelligence school and taught young employees how to deal with the GRU.
– And what, in MI5, except for Skripal, no one knows how to do it? I think they know it better than him.
– In such cases, there is a very simple practice. When Skripal was taken on treason, he probably was intelligibly explained: either you go to life imprisonment and you will be in solitary confinement somewhere beyond the Arctic Circle, or you will receive 12 years of strict regime in the European part of Russia. But for this, you must fully tell what you have handed over, and give evidence. To cooperate with the investigation.
Similarly, when the former colonel of the Defense Intelligence of Israel’s Defense Intelligence Department, I did not name him, went into business and got into debt.
He went to Lebanon to buy heroin and conduct a drug deal, and was captured by Hezbollah. He told everything he knew, inflicting enormous damage to Israel’s defense capability. Because he was an officer on this site, he worked for Lebanon.
The Israelis exchanged him, they pulled him out. He was told: let’s make a deal. You will not be prosecuted. But you must thoroughly, in every detail, tell what you told them. We need to know what they know. The same was with Skripal. And there was simply no need to eliminate him.
– So there was no motive for Russian special services?
– There was no motive. Then, imagine: they used “Novichok”, they carried it with them in a bottle from under the perfume. In the practice of special services this does not exist. Performers go light, with other people’s passports. They receive weapons on the spot. And when such a group of liquidators works, it works autonomously, without affecting the local residency. In case of failure, do not harm the residence. When the surveillance is working and the capture team is working, they do not know each other in person, they communicate only through certain communication channels.
– The question is also why the poison did not act instantly, and Skripal was still wandering about for a few hours.
– It’s a different matter. The British are so disrespectful to Russia that even provocation can not be done at a decent level. It’s even humiliating. Therefore, Russia does not comment on this in any way. And why is it necessary to comment on some kind of nonsense?
It took half a year to Brits to find the “suspects.” Although they left their full personal data and fingerprints in the embassy when they received visas. This is a separate nonsense. Then Russia said: please! Here they are, here’s their interview. If they were active GRU officers, they would not have left their fingerprints in the embassy for anything.
“Who are they?”
– I do not know who they are, but certainly not employees of special services. If the GRU needed to kill Skripal, he would now be dead. This would have been done quietly and without scandal.
“Why Britain needs this?”
– This is a well-thought-out strategy of demonization and international isolation of Russia. In the UK, as in the rest of the Western world, everything works very simply. Most people do not read newspapers at all. And those who read, do not understand half. But everyone sees the headlines. Provocation with the Skripals is needed to exclude the Russian Federation from the Commission for Investigating the Use of Chemical Weapons in Syria. This is a minimum program.

We should be asking for answers about the Skripals and Bellingcat – and not just from Russia
Bellingcat has grown rather a lot beyond its shoestring origins. It has money – where from? It has been hiring staff. It has transatlantic connections. It has never, so far as I am aware, reached any conclusion that is inconvenient to the UK or US authorities
https://www.independent.co.uk/voices/skripals-bellingcat-gru-novichok- anatoly-chepiga-alexander-mishkin-putin-russia-a8577161.html

Mary Dejevsky @IndyVoices
Wednesday 10 October 2018 11:15

It is now more than seven months since assassins from Russia’s military intelligence service tried to kill a former double agent and his daughter with a nerve agent in Salisbury. Or did they? The only incontrovertible fact in that assertion is the location, Salisbury. Pretty much everything else remains speculative.

The Skripal case has troubled me since the first news broke in March. It is not the improbability of what was reported to have happened – improbable things are the stuff of news. It is rather the mixture of utter certainty, unsubstantiated claims and glaring information gaps that is so disconcerting, from the immediate rush by UK officials to blame the Russian state, to the way the main figures in this drama have simply vanished, and now to the contradictions that have gained blithe, and almost universal, acceptance.

When the Metropolitan Police showed the passports of two Russians they believed to be the assassins, they strongly hinted that the names on the documents were false. The invitation to establish their real names was taken up by investigative organisation Bellingcat, which has now – amid a blizzard of documentation, seductive reference to “open source” techniques, and not a little help from Russian whistleblowers – come up with what it says are their real identities.

One of them is Colonel Anatoly Chepiga; the other is a medically qualified agent called Alexander Mishkin, and both have received state honours from President Putin.

What’s so suspect about this, you may ask. Well, let’s start with Bellingcat, which has presented itself in the past as a microcosm of well-meaning and very British amateurishness, based in a Leicestershire bedroom, producing results that put the professional sleuths to shame. In fact, Bellingcat has grown rather a lot beyond its shoestring origins. It has money – where from? It has been hiring staff. It has transatlantic connections. It has never, so far as I am aware, reached any conclusion – whether on the downing of the Malaysian plane over eastern Ukraine, or chemical weapons use in Syria, or now, with the Skripals – that is in any way inconvenient to the UK or US authorities.

That need not cast doubt on its findings. But should the authenticity of the documents it cites not be subject, at very least, to the same scrutiny as might be applied to other evidence? And when, as this week, UK officials say they do not “dispute” Bellingcat’s identification of Chepiga and Mishkin, does this not prompt a few questions about whether, say, our “agencies” reached the same conclusions long ago, but kept quiet, or why most of the UK’s media apparently find Bellingcat a more trustworthy source than the UK intelligence services (possible answer: Iraq)? Might not the group’s good name be being used to get information into the public domain that officials do not want to vouch for? And, if so, would this be to inform, or to mislead?

What else do I find troubling? How about the UK and US focus on Russian military intelligence, still referred to as the GRU? I don’t recall any specific Soviet or Russian agency being so clearly fingered in this way before. Accusations might have been levelled at the KGB – or its Russian successor, the FSB – but this was usually in a generic, not specific, sense. Why the change?

What next for UK-Russia relations after unveiling of Skripal suspect?

The implausible claims made by Russians accused of novichok attack

The conspiracy theories about the Skripals which might be true
It could be, of course, because the UK knows for certain that it was the GRU that targeted the Skripals. But it could equally be that officials simply assumed this because the GRU was Sergei Skripal’s agency, or because the GRU was already in the dock in the US for alleged involvement in hacking. Or it could be because it sounds much scarier than just saying “intelligence”, or even – though I concede this is unlikely – to make clear to Vladimir Putin that we are not blaming him, because the GRU was never “his” agency.

But there is a big contradiction here. On the one hand, the GRU is being presented as a bunch of duffers, whose decorated and highly qualified agents were booked into an east London dive, behaved badly, were deterred by a bit of snow, abysmally failed in their mission, and now face the wrath of Putin. On the other hand, we are told that the GRU is the crème de la crème of state agencies, that Russia is mighty and malevolent and that we should be very, very afraid. Which is it?

Lastly, let’s consider the connections that the UK public is being encouraged to make. Between the two Bellingcat identifications of Chepiga and Mishkin, a clutch of western states, including the UK and the US, came out with a coordinated condemnation of specific cases of Russian cyber-espionage. One related to the chemical weapons watchdog, the OPCW, back in April; another to the World Anti-Doping Agency in Switzerland. All this was presented to the UK public at least in the context of the Skripal case.

But there is a broader and more obvious explanation for Russia’s “behaviour” here – which is that, whether in sport or in matters of chemical weapons, the western allies have closed ranks to exclude Russia from information it is entitled to as a member of these international organisations. In such circumstances, wouldn’t you try to find out what was going on? Might you not also wonder why an apparent attack in an English city was being treated not as a crime – so a police matter – but as “the first use of a chemical weapon in Europe since the Second World War”, which allowed it to be immediately shut behind the impenetrable wall that supposedly protects UK intelligence and state security?

And the point that troubles me. For all the “revelations” of recent days, we are no further forward in knowing what happened to the Skripals – or to Dawn Sturgess, who remains the only person to have died, or to her partner, Charlie Rowley, who has now, like the Skripals and Detective Constable Nick Bailey, disappeared from the media. The two men caught on CCTV in Salisbury may indeed be GRU agents – though why the GRU would squander its brightest and best on such an apparently incompetently executed operation raises doubts. But no UK court would convict them of even attempted killing on the “evidence” that has so far been produced.

The CCTV footage from Salisbury has huge lacunae – though it is established that the cameras were working in Salisbury that day – and does not include any of the pair less than 500m from the Skripals’ house, nor any of the Skripals themselves. Why not? We still do not know where they were for most of that Sunday morning, who they might have met, or for what purpose, or precisely when the presumed attack occurred. Those are huge gaps.

Now, it is also true that Russia’s information machine has hardly covered itself in glory. Its response to at least some of the UK accusations have been weak or in dubious taste, to put it mildly. The RT interview (which was also broadcast on Russian domestic TV) seemed designed to make the Salisbury “tourists” a laughing stock. And Russia has not been as vocal as might perhaps have been expected in demanding consular access to Yulia Skripal, which might seem to cast doubt on its claims of innocence.

But the flaws in the way Russia has presented its case are not my prime concern. I am in the UK, a British citizen and a UK journalist, and I find the evidence and the explanations so far offered by our own side in what is becoming an all-out information war both deficient and scandalously short on credibility – and so, I suggest, should you.

Original news reports on 4th and 5th March were that Detective Nick Bailey was the first police officer to arrive at the scene at the park bench ... now the story has changed completely, it is now claimed that he went to the Skripals' house, with other officers, touched the front door handle, and then collapsed. Strange how he collapsed straight away, given that the Skripals only collapsed several hours after they had left home (and two hours before the alleged Russian assassins' train even arrived in Salisbury, raising the obvious question how they could have touched the handle when they weren't there! There is reportedly no cctv record of them returning home after they left home at 9.15am, whereas there are three cctv recordings showing their car leaving home in the morning. So how could the 'Novichok on door handle' scenario be possible?!)


Also, according to news reports at the time, it was initially believed by medical staff at Salisbury Hospital that it was a drugs overdose, and no special precautions were taken ... yet this report now claims that Hazmat suits were immediately worn at the park bench by firefighters! Why, since noone yet knew that it was 'a nerve agent'? Do they normally wear Hazmat suits when attending people who have If they were so suspicious immediately it happened at the park bench, then why were the doctors and nurses at the Hospital also similarly protected immediately the Skripals were admitted?

EXCLUSIVE: Teenage girl describes moment she found collapsed Skripals
SWP_Spire-LHA2019_Lifesaver
Published by Henrietta Creasey at 8:31am 19th January 2019. (Updated at 9:17am 21st January 2019)
https://www.spirefm.co.uk/news/local-news/2782928/exclusive-teenage-gi rl-describes-moment-she-found-collapsed-skripals/

Abigail McCourt has spoken about the Salisbury Novichok incident for the very first time.
The 16 year old, from Larkhill, was the first to spot two people collapsed on a bench in the Maltings on March 4th and didn't hesitate to help.
Abigail believed Sergei Skripal was having a heart attack.
The teen, who was out celebrating her brother's birthday quickly alerted her mum who is a nurse and together they gave first aid to the two Russians until paramedics arrived.
Abby used the first aid skills she had learned at school to help the pair, putting Yulia in the recovery position.
Maltings Novichok incident
The bench in the Maltings where the Skripals were found unconscious became part of a major crime scene.
Abby and her mum had to undergo hospital tests to make sure they weren't contaminated with Novichok.
It was an anxious time for the family but Abby says she has "no hesitation" that she would do the same thing again despite the risk to herself.

Immediately following the incident and with the world's media focused on Salisbury, the pair didn't want any want press attention and kept their involvement quiet.
The key role Abby played has only come to light now because her mum,nominated her for the Lifesaver Award at Spire FM's Local Hero Awards.
Alison felt the the time was right for her daughter to be recognised for the "incredible" way she dealt with the scenario.
The judges were unanimous in their decision that Abigail was a very worthy winner.
Mum Alison, says she's extremley proud of Abby:
"As a qualified nurse it was a fairly routine situation for me but my daughter was amazing. Her prompt actions, spotting them in difficulty, and the way she assisted me to put Yulia Skripal in the recovery position had a significant impact on the outcome of the two victims."
Last night (19th January) Abby collected her award in front of 150 guests including the Chief Constable of Wiltshire Police.

First responder in Skripal poisoning turns out to be Britain’s most senior military nurse
Published time: 21 Jan, 2019 10:08

First responder in Skripal poisoning turns out to be Britain’s most senior military nurse

Sergei and Yulia Skripal were given first aid by the British Army’s most senior nurse, who just happened to be nearby, according to a new report – adding further intrigue to the highly controversial case.
The latest development in the Salisbury poisoning affair will fuel the claims of skeptics, who don’t believe the official British narrative. UK authorities have claimed that the former double agent and his daughter were targeted by the Russian government in a bizarre failed assassination plot involving a military-grade nerve agent.

It was previously reported by British media that the first person to provide medical assistance to the Skripals after they collapsed on a bench in Salisbury was “an off-duty nurse who had worked on the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone.”

However, the healthcare professional turned out to be not just any nurse. She was Colonel Alison McCourt, a veteran service member who currently holds the position of chief nursing officer in the British Army.

ALSO ON RT.COM
Skripal’s Salisbury home to be partly dismantled by British military
The revelation emerged after her daughter Abigail, 16, was given a Local Hero award from Spire FM, a local radio station. According to a story broadcast by the radio last weekend, Abigail noticed that the Skripals were not well, misdiagnosed Sergei as having suffered a heart attack, and called her mom. The teen, who has first-aid training, then assisted her mother in providing CPR.

Spire FM explained why the story was kept in the dark for almost a year, saying neither of the McCourt women had wanted media attention after the two people they helped turned out to be victims of a high-profile crime that pitted the UK and Russia against each other in a bitter war of accusations and stonewalling.

However, Colonel McCourt, who herself was decorated for her deployment to fight Ebola in Sierra Leone, decided that her daughter also deserved an award and proposed her as a candidate.

Skeptics will say it’s a hell of a coincidence that Britain’s most senior military nurse and her family were celebrating her son’s birthday at just the right time, and in just the right place, to get involved in arguably the decade’s biggest spy scandal in Britain. Perhaps stranger things have happened…

ALSO ON RT.COM
Skripal spin doctors: Documents link UK govt-funded Integrity Initiative to anti-Russia narrative
The British military lab that studies chemical weapons also just happens to be located near Salisbury. The victims of the poison, which the UK government have called Novichok, collapsed at the same time, hours after allegedly coming into contact with the substance on the door handle of Sergei Skripal’s front door.

The supposed bungling assassins proved to be so inept that they couldn’t dispose of the highly conspicuous murder weapon in a way in which it wouldn’t be found. And all this coincidentally occurred to cause scandal and distraction just as Britain was failing to negotiate favorable terms for its exit from the EU.

Pablo Miller – spyline
https://johnplatinumgoss.wordpress.com/2019/01/28/pablo-miller-spyline  /

1982 According to his LinkedIn account (no longer available) Pablo Miller graduated from Oxford University in 1982 with a degree in Modern Languages and History. Following graduation he attended the British Army officer training academy at Sandhurst.

His commission in the Royal Tank Regiment took him to Germany, Cyprus, Northern Ireland and Brunei.

1984 Lt. Pablo Miller was given some assistance by General Sir Desmond Langley in Cyprus.

1985 Captain Pablo Miller represented his division skiing in a race at which the starter was Princess Anne. Photos here: http://www.4and7royaltankregiment.com/1982-1985/

Yulia Skripal was born in Malta.

1995 Sergei Skripal, a colonel in the GRU, and a number of other Russians were recruited by Milller about this time. Russian author, Nikolai Luzan, in his espionage exposure “The Devil’s Counter-intelligence Dozen”, explains how Skripal was brought on board by the MI6 officer, Pablo Miller.

1997 Pablo Miller became First Secretary of the British embassy in Tallinn recruiting under the name of Antonio Alvarez de Hidalgo. As things stood Skripal was already on a nice little earner secretly importing wine from the GRU authorities enabling him to make extended business trips to Malta and Spain. On one of these the GRU colonel was introduced to a Spaniard named Luis. According to Luzan it was Luis who introduced Skripal to Miller (then posing as Antonio Alvarez de Hidalgo) and they went into business together.

Skripal was described as having a “thirst for profit”. He would sometimes take his wife, Lyudmilla, with him on his business trips. It seems however she knew nothing of his extra-business activities. Before entering into their partnership Miller took Skripal to a strip-club but it was not the Russian’s kind of thing and he went back home to his wife. Miller bought Skripal’s loyalty with a cheque-book and before long, using colleagues within the GRU, files had been collated on some 300 GRU employees.

1999 Skripal resigned from the GRU on health grounds. Soon after his resignation he was issued with a passport and went abroad. Again he made contact with Pablo Miller and resumed espionage activities, this time providing details on the structure of the GRU. Skripal was a greedy man. Greedy men are rarely if ever driven by morals in their decision-making. British Intelligence personnel would have known this and Skripal met with MI6 personnel frequently. He met them in the seaside resort of Izmir in Turkey under the pretence of being a tourist.

This year the Tomlinson list of 116 British Intelligence Officers was released. Apparently Pablo Miller’s name is not on the list and the controllers of the World Wide Web have done a creditable job in wiping clean this list from the internet. There are still a few hard copies available.

2000 Valery Oyamae was another recruit of Pablo Miller’s. Oyamae lived in Moscow and made frequent trips to Estonia. At the time Pablo Miller was operating from the British Embassy in Tallinn as its First Secretary – a cover for his intelligence work. On 15 March 2000 at 7 p.m. Oyamae was arrested at the Leningradsky railway station, Moscow, on espionage charges. He had risen through the ranks of the KGB becoming a senior officer. Though Oyamae was not mentioned by name at the time of his arrest, Pablo Miller, his minder, was named in both Russian and English-reading press.

While Skripal’s handler was Pablo Miller, Miller was answering to Christopher Steele in MI6.

Scot William Hine (or Hein) and Estonian Sergei Petrenko (see 2001) were arrested in Tallin on drug-smuggling charges. They were caught in possession of £2.4 million worth of heroin concealed in the fuel tank of the car they were driving. It is not clear if Robert Bruce Wright and Leslie Brown were with them at the time but they never stood trial.

2001 On 23 April 2001 Valery Oyamae was sentenced to seven years in prison in a Moscow court under article 275. His property was confiscated. Until sentence was pronounced his name had been kept out of the Russian and western media.

This year there was an extradition request from Estonia to the UK for Robert Bruce Wright (35) and Leslie Brown (44) wanted under suspicion of drug-smuggling in conjunction with William Hein (42) and Sergei Petrenko (41). Nobody knows the dark machinations of our security services but from what I can make out Wright and Brown claimed they were not drug-smugglers but secret-agents working against Russia on behalf of Pablo Miller at the British Embassy in Tallinn.

lenta.ru›articles/2007/08/15/spy/

20:57, 15 августа 2007 Шпион-идальго

It appears the two Estonians got 3 to 4 years in prison each and Estonia put in a request for extradition of the British citizens. I cannot find an English article on this drug-smuggling event – though there were some. Originally the BBC reported this story. And it was reported in Scotland. It has since gone dead. It looks like they were probably spooks.

https://www.prokuratuur.ee/en/node/1116

2003 Pablo Miller, at this time calling himself Paul, is credited with having arranged the passage of Vyacheslav Zharko, Boris Berezovsky and Alexander Litvinenko (FSB officer) to the UK, which added to the festering cesspool of oligarchs and Mafia-style businessmen already buying political favours and prime properties in London.

Skripal left his latest job in the Russian Department of Foreign Affairs.

2004 Sergei Skripal arrested and detained in custody on charges of espionage. He admitted the charges.

2006 Sergei Skripal convicted of spying and given a 13 year prison sentence. He allegedly confessed to everything. According to the Russian press It would appear that Skripal may have protected his minder because there was no mention of a Miller or Hidalgo by the FSB in 2006. (Source: Kommersant 16.08.2007, p. 4)

Alexander Valterovich Litvinenko died from polonium 210 poisoning.

Pablo Miller took up a post in Bogota, Columbia possibly for his own safety. According to his deleted LinkedIn page he “led the British Government’s flagship project in Bogota, supporting the Colombian state’s programme aimed at countering high-level, drugs-related corruption and impunity.”

2007 Vyacheslav Zharko, a former tax police inspector, spilled the beans in claiming that Pablo Miller recruited him in 2003. He was not caught. Most pertinently he confessed to the FSB when Andrei Lugovoi was accused by the UK of poisoning Alexander Litvinenko. He lost total faith in MI6. It dawned on him that his minders (he named 3 including Pablo Miller) would say anything to try to denigrate Russia and no longer wanted to be part of it.

2009 Pablo Miller’s duty came to an end in Bogota.

Christopher Steele retired as head of the Russian Department of MI6 and founded Orbis Business Intelligence (based in Grosvenor Gardens, London). https://orbisbi.com

2010 Roberto Flórez García convicted in Spain of working for the Russians at the start of the century. It is said he betrayed Skripal as a spy.

Sergei Skripal was exchanged in a deal with the US having served four years of a thirteen year sentence. He came with his wife and daughter to live in Salisbury, the home town of his former minder Pablo Miller.

Pablo Miller was posted to Poland as a counsellor at the British Embassy in Warsaw. On 5 May (shortly before the UK National Election) he wrote a witty tongue-in-cheek letter to the Spectator from Warsaw criticising the apathy of modern youth in being too lazy to vote. This no doubt made his daughters very proud of him!

2011 The Spectator received a letter from Pablo Miller in Poland in praise of Ross Clark and Martin Vander Weyer criticising public sector chief executive salaries compared to those of commanding officers in Helmand, on a mere £70,000 per annum.

2012 Sergei Skripal’s wife, Lyudmilla, died from cancer.

2014 Yulia Skripal returned to Russia.

2015 Pablo Miller received an OBE from Queen Elizabeth II. He retired from MI6 and joined his colleague and former boss Christopher Steele at Orbis Business Intelligence – the company responsible for the “dodgy dossier” on Donald Trump.

2016 Sergei Skripal’s son and older brother of Yulia, Alexander, died from liver failure on a high-speed train in Moscow. This prompted Yulia to remove all family photos from her Facebook account.

Orbis Business Intelligence releases its report on Donald Trump based to a large extent on information supplied by a former Russian intelligence officer.

https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3259984-Trump-Intelligence-All egations.html

There are many speculations that this intelligence officer was Skripal, who perhaps should have got out of the game when Zharko did.

2018 On March 5 the Clinical Services Journal (CSJ) reported “a major incident after two patients were exposed to what was believed to be an opiate . . . an incident . . . in which a man and a woman were exposed to the drug Fentanyl in the city centre.” The drug Fentanyl was redacted later and replaced by “a substance” with the footnote that: “This story was updated on 26 April 2018 to remove suggestion (which was widely speculated and reported at the time of writing) that the substance found was fentanyl.” All credit to the medical journalists who were forced to change the story.

http://dilyana.bg/skripals-poisoned-with-fentanyl/

And all credit to the author, Dilyana Gaytandzhieva, of the blog which first exposed the Novichok lie. If I am not mistaken the photographer in the mirror on the first photo bears an uncanny resemblance to the artist’s impression of Pablo Miller in the featured image at the head of this timeline.

The Alternative Skripal Narrative

https://thesaker.is/the-alternative-skripal-narrative/

The recent titbit fed to us by Bellingcat (reputedly close to MI6) that a third Russian agent was booked on the flight from Heathrow to Moscow on the night of 4th March 2018 — the flight taken by the two alleged GRU officers filmed in Salisbury — but didn’t show up for it, has pointed to a possible solution to the baffling Skripal puzzle. What if the third man, or perhaps the man who was supposed to take his place, was by then lying in Salisbury Hospital in a coma from opiate poisoning? What if Sergei Skripal was a triple agent trying to escape back to Russia to tell the world the truth about the Steele Dossier, which he had helped to concoct as a scurrilous, obscene joke and which had unexpectedly become the new bible of the insane war party in Washington?

This is the alternative narrative I will set out in detail here so that the reader can judge whether it forms a more plausible and coherent story than the mishmash of improbabilities, absurdities and contradictions served up by the British police and MI6. Of course in the absence of all the facts we must sometimes use imaginative reconstruction to fill in the gaps, but the point is to see how many thorny problems, raised by the facts we do have, can be solved by this narrative and cannot be solved by the official one.

It is not necessary to decide whether Skripal was a triple agent from the start (that is, a plant sent across in a spy swap, a classic Cold War way of infiltrating the enemy) or whether he became a triple agent when he realized how important this grotesque Steele Dossier had become and how much the Russians would pay him to come back and demolish it. What evidence there is (his phone call in 2012 to his old school friend, Vladimir Timoshkov, whose account of it three weeks after the poisoning gained widespread UK media coverage) suggests he started out as a purely mercenary traitor. Disillusioned by the collapse of the USSR into a gangster capitalist state run by Yeltsin’s mafia cronies, he decided he might as well profit from it by selling the corpse of what had once been his country to the highest bidder. The Russians didn’t seem to think of him as much more than a common criminal (only worth a moderate 13-year sentence, instead of the death penalty he would have got in the USA for betraying 300 agents) or they wouldn’t have let him survive six years in their prison. Perhaps when they exchanged him in the spy swap they gave him a wink and said: “Since you’re just a money-grubbing whore, any time you want to come back with some interesting stuff learned from working for MI6, let us know and we’ll discuss the price.”

He soon got to learn that interesting stuff when he was sent to Salisbury, the home town of his MI6 recruiter and handler, Pablo Miller. Miller had recruited him in Spain in 1995 and later handled him from Estonia, when he was posted there as a diplomat. It is a little too much to believe Skripal’s move to Salisbury was a coincidence. The two men became friends again, met regularly in the pub, and there is every reason to think Miller resumed his role as handler. Miller was now working for Christopher Steele, his old boss at MI6, in his private intelligence firm, Orbis Business Intelligence, based in Mayfair. This is one of the private intelligence-gathering outfits run by ex-spies of the kind Litvinenko used to work for. Just as Litvinenko got Lugovoy (his accused assassin) to help him out with due diligence reports on Russian businessmen because of his more up-to-date information, so Miller would have used Skripal in the same way. His help became vital when Steele got the commission from the Democratic Party to dig up Russian dirt on Donald Trump, and they had to invent some GRU set-up of the Donald with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel. Miller, the old Russia hand, would have done a good part of the work on this dossier and would have needed all the authentic detail his Russian agent could provide. Perhaps it was Skripal who came up with the scenario of Trump getting prostitutes to urinate on the bed the Obamas had slept in, which hidden cameras filmed. He must at least have given it his imprimatur as a typical GRU blackmail ploy to turn somebody into an asset. And that obscene fiction, the core of the Steele Dossier, became the basis of the neo-con legend that Trump was a Russian stooge — the insane underpinning of the whole mad Mueller probe into “Russian collusion”.

When Sergei the mercenary realized the vast importance this farcical, obscene Steele Dossier had taken on, that it was gospel truth for the whole anti-Trump, anti-Russia war party in Washington, he began to see how much it might be worth to the Russian state to blow it sky-high. If he were to describe on a prime-time Russian talk-show how he invented these obscene details over a beer with Miller and Steele in a pub, it would not only have all of Russia rolling on the floor with laughter. Heads would roll in Washington. The neo-con war party would become a laughing-stock. MI6 would be run out of town. Steele might face FBI perjury charges. The CIA might have its budget cut. Trump would be able to talk to Putin again. And the rewards for Sergei might be considerable. Not only seeing his 90-year old mother again, but perhaps even a * villa with a sea-view in Crimea or Sochi instead of that dank, shabby row-house in darkest Salisbury.

Was it Sergei who broached this subject to Yulia on one of her visits to Britain, or was she recruited by the GRU to put it to him? My bet is the latter, since after the poisoning her cousin Viktoria claimed Yulia’s new boyfriend and his mother both worked for the Russian secret services (before disappearing from view.) With all of Sergei’s communications monitored by MI6, the only way he had of talking to the GRU was through his daughter, living back in Russia again but able to visit Britain. Through her he must have managed to negotiate a deal for his return. Somehow MI6 got wind of their plans — perhaps Yulia, not a trained spy, was a bit naive or careless about listening devices. Steele became convinced they had made an escape plan for Sergei, to be carried out next time she visited Salisbury.

The thing that proves this was a British crime not a Russian one is the fact that Yulia was a prime target. The Russians had no motive to eliminate her, but if they had, they could have done it in Russia with a simple road accident with no questions asked. Only the British had to do it in Britain, since they didn’t have the resources in place to do it in Russia. And if she was not a prime target but collateral damage, why was Sergei not attacked when he was alone? Why wait for her to visit him? The fact they were both targeted the day after she arrived in Britain puts MI6’s signature all over it. She was a danger to MI6 because she knew of Sergei’s plan to return to Russia and trash the Steele Dossier, and she had to be stopped from revealing this to the world when he was killed. Silencing her at the same time was just as important to MI6 as silencing him.

To imagine that Putin would have ordered the assassination of an old double agent whom he had held for six years in prison (with ample opportunities to arrange his death) and then pardoned and swapped in a spy swap (part of the rules of the spying game on which his own life had been based), a week before the Russian elections and three months before the Football World Cup in Russia, which he hoped would lead to Russia’s re-acceptance into the community of nations, makes no sense. It carried only huge risks for a negligible benefit, and Putin does not take pointless risks, as his consistent prudence in Syria, even when his forces have been attacked, has shown. Compare the enormous gains this crime brought Britain. This assassination (as it was meant to be) gave MI6 a perfect opportunity to frame the Russians and incite a new anti-Russia frenzy to sabotage their celebratory Football World Cup (compared by the British Foreign Secretary to Hitler’s Olympics.) It would also show the EU Britain’s value as an anti-Putin cheerleader, bringing Europe and Britain together in an anti-Russia hate-week to distract from their Brexit quarrel, and uniting a fractious parliament behind a floundering leader. With any luck it would derail the Nordstream2 gas pipeline, a priority target for the US neo-con plan to ruin Russia’s economy, overthrow the regime and break up the country — goals MI6 fully shared, as their propaganda wing, the Integrity Initiative, has since made clear. In fact MI6’s plans to work for the total isolation and economic ruin of Russia, including sporting bans and ending cultural exchanges, date from 2015 and were leaked recently by Anonymous. The enormous preponderance of motivation on the British side, as well as the low risk in carrying out such a crime on their own turf with a grovelling press, a brainwashed public and tame police, point clearly to MI6 as the perpetrators.

Steele probably turned to his CIA friends for suggestions on how to frame Russia. They came up with novichok. This nerve agent invented by a Soviet chemist who later moved to the US and published the formula could be pinned on Russia as a uniquely Russian “chemical weapon.” Never mind that any decent laboratory could produce it, as a chemistry professor at Cornell has testified. Never mind that the British-invented nerve agent VX had been used to assassinate Kim Yong-Un’s half-brother in Kuala Lumpur Airport without Malaysia screaming that Britain must have done it. Russia is different. Hysterical hatred can be instantly incited against Russia by the MI6-controlled media and MI6-brainwashed politicians. Anyone who doubts Russia’s guilt can be vilified as a Putin stooge. Whether the novichok was sent over from the US by courier or produced at Porton Down is not important. What is important is that MI6’s attempt to kill the Skripals with novichok failed disastrously.

Let’s take the famous Nina Ricci perfume bottle, laced with novichok, which was found in a rubbish bin or charity bin by a homeless man and given weeks later to his woman friend, who tragically died after spraying it on her wrist. The police/MI6 narrative is that this perfume bottle was used to transport the novichok from Russia in the baggage of one of the alleged GRU men caught on CCTV in Salisbury. The novichok was then sprayed on the door handle of the Skripals’ house. The assassins then callously threw away the bottle (which they knew contained enough novichok to kill more people) in a dustbin or charity bin, demonstrating their indifference to loss of life as well as their indifference to leaving clues all over the place. There are problems with this narrative.

The homeless man claimed he had found the perfume bottle still in its box sealed in cellophane, proof it was not reopened after it had been laced with novichok and professionally repackaged. The bottle could not therefore have been used (as claimed) to spray the novichok on the doorknob, or the cellophane seal would have been broken. Assassins far from home don’t usually carry around cellophane-wrapping machines to repackage opened perfume bottles, especially when they are just going to chuck them in the bin. Nor would they take the risk, having fitted the separate spray nozzle onto the bottle and sprayed the doorknob, of disassembling it again to put it back in the box, knowing that a drop on their skin would kill them. And where would they perform this delicate operation? On the street? This poisoned perfume bottle was therefore never reopened, never used and it affected nobody until it ended up in the hands of the homeless man. So who or what was it intended for?

Ladies’ perfume bottles are normally intended for women. How many women are there in this story? Only one. The only possible explanation for the existence of this unopened, unused bottle of perfume laced with novichok is that it was a poisoned gift meant for Yulia Skripal. Why didn’t she open it? Because she had a spy father who took one look at it and said: “Don’t touch it!”

So here is the alternative narrative. MI6 had the bright idea of putting novichok in a Nina Ricci perfume bottle and sending it as a birthday present to Yulia Skripal at her father’s house. Her birthday was on 17th March, but the present was probably delivered on the 3rd, the day she arrived, so as to nip their escape plan in the bud. It was meant to seem like a present from her family or boyfriend. No doubt the parcel had Russian stamps on it, designed to frame the Russian state when the Skripals were found dead in their house with an open perfume bottle in Yulia’s hands. Unfortunately for MI6, Sergei took one look at this Nina Ricci perfume bottle and his spy instincts smelled danger. He refused to open it, but instead went for a long walk with it and put it in a rubbish bin or charity bin half-way across town. There it was found by the homeless man and given to his woman friend, a victim of MI6’s murderous callousness. Even after MI6 knew it had gone missing, they did not warn the public to beware of picking up a Nina Ricci perfume bottle because they didn’t want to give themselves away as the assassins.

The failure of the perfume bottle to kill the Skripals must have alarmed MI6. They followed the pair around Salisbury the next day. Where did they go? We can’t be sure since we have not been given all the CCTV footage. But let us engage in some more imaginative reconstruction to cover the gaps. The Skripals’ car made some unexplained journeys towards the outskirts of the town. The two alleged GRU men caught on Salisbury’s CCTV walked in some unexplained directions, with not a scrap of evidence they came within half a kilometre of the Skripals’ home. What if the two unexplained journeys intersected? Not necessarily in time but in place. What if they met at that hoary cliché of spy stories, the dead drop, the discreet delivery point for a package? The hole-in-a-garden-wall just big enough to hide something? A Mossad spy, commenting on the British police narrative, said that no GRU assassination team would ever have flown direct from Russia using Russian passports. But a support team delivering a package? Why not? What did they risk?

Now what would the GRU need to deliver to Sergei Skripal to help him escape from Britain back to Russia? Clearly, a passport. MI6, once they suspected his loyalty, would have put him on an airport watch list. He would need a passport in a false name to get out, and perhaps a flight ticket to Moscow in the same name so he wouldn’t need to make an internet booking, easily spied on. But the passport could not be blank. It needed a UK visa and entry stamp. So the third Russian agent who Bellingcat now tells us didn’t show up for the flight back to Moscow must have intended his seat to be taken by Sergei Skripal, who would use the passport and visa which he had flown in with a few days before (delivered to Sergei by his two colleagues at the dead drop that day.) Either Sergei and the third man bore a sufficient physical resemblance or passport photos were switched by an expert forger in London. Unfortunately, though Sergei now had a usable passport, he was hit before he made it to the flight.

MI6, after the failure of the perfume bottle attempt, knew they had to act fast to stop the Skripals driving to the airport. Once they observed the package delivery at the dead drop, they would have guessed it was a passport. There was now no chance of using novichok. The Skripals were unlikely to return home and pack a bag, so they had to be knocked out in a public place. Using novichok and risking the lives of dozens of other people was too much even for MI6. So they decided to spray them in the street with an opiate like Fentanyl, and later on to add novichok to the blood samples they sent to Porton Down for analysis (without of course any controlled chain of custody except their own.)

We know that the Skipals were knocked out with an opiate and not a nerve agent because of a simple incident — in fact, a slip-up. The first person on the scene when the Skripals collapsed on their bench was an army nurse, the Chief Nursing Officer of the British Army, Colonel Alison McCourt, accompanied by her teenage daughter, Abigail. Does anyone believe she was there by chance and was not part of the MI6 team following the Skripals about and looking for an opportunity to drug them discreetly? Now Colonel McCourt had long experience both with Ebola in Sierra Leone and with the danger of chemical weapons during her service in Iraq, where protection against nerve agents was a priority. She knew the enormous precautions required in approaching a victim of a nerve agent attack. Yet Colonel McCourt encouraged her daughter to rush over to the collapsed Skripals and begin administering first aid to them, something very dangerous if a nerve agent had been used. She later even recommended Abigail for a medal for heroism for her action, which is why it got into the papers. How did Colonel McCourt know that a nerve agent had not been used on the Skripals, unless she was part of the team that had sprayed them with an opiate? Would she have allowed her daughter to touch the Skipals unless she was sure there was no nerve agent present? This is what is known as a smoking gun.

There has been extraordinary silence in the mainstream media about the fact that none of the first responders or the Salisbury Hospital staff were in any way affected by the deadliest nerve agent known to man, even though no precautions were taken against it for at least two days. The nurses assumed they were dealing with an opiate overdose. When the blood test results came back from Porton Down showing novichok present in the blood samples, the hazmat suits were donned and the hospital allegedly went into panic mode. We can assume most of this was a charade. Sergeant Bailey, allegedly contaminated with novichok though the police can’t decide where, recounts in the Panorama BBC film shown in November that the nurses who cared for him wore full hazmat suits, but his wife and children wandered in to see him wearing no protection at all. Clearly the nurses were engaging in an MI6-mandated charade but couldn’t bear to impose it on his family because they knew there was no novichok present. Bailey, no doubt also drugged by an opiate, had been selected as a fake British victim to stir up more indignation against Russia, and to add further fake proof that novichok had been used, which the total absence of contamination of first responders might cast doubt on. As part of this charade, all the poor man’s furniture and belongings were destroyed by the heartless brutes of MI6, which he recounts in tears, in order to incite more irrational hatred of Russia — which the British public, the most brainwashed on earth, came up with on cue.

Of course the failure of the perfume bottle assassination attempt, and the need to switch drugs and use an opiate instead of novichok, left MI6 and the police with the task of explaining how the phantom novichok was administered. The farcical story they finally came up with, that it was sprayed on the Skripals’ front door handle with the perfume bottle, has convinced nobody except the brainwashed masses. Even the clownish Foreign Secretary’s story that MI6 had shown him a Russian spy handbook which described how their spies had recently been practising putting novichok on door handles (a technical skill obviously requiring weeks of training and about to be unleashed en masse against Britain’s unsuspecting doorknobs) but unfortunately he couldn’t produce this handbook as it was classified, left people howling with laughter. It was worthy of a Monty Python sketch, something the Russians, who are great fans of British comedy, must have appreciated.

The idea that assassins could walk up to the front door of a terraced house in broad daylight, a door with clear glass panels in the middle and on both sides of it, so that anyone outside is visible from the hallway, and spray the doorknob with novichok while the Skripals were inside and their car was in the driveway, is simply not believable. These professional assassins did not even have a car or even bicycles to make a getaway if seen. And the two police versions of what time the attackers did this, first of all at 9.15 before the Skripals left home and then at 1.30 (after the police revised their timeline to fit the train schedule of the two Russians caught on CCTV) would both have left many hours’ delay before this deadly nerve agent took effect at 4.15 that afternoon.

We are asked to believe that two people of very different size, a man of 66 and a girl half that age, fell unconscious at the exact same moment either seven hours or three hours after being poisoned with a deadly “military grade” nerve agent. Why this delayed effect? Would this be useful in a battlefield chemical weapon — let’s leave the enemy active for several hours? And how to get a simultaneous collapse many hours later? No explanation. And if novichok was used to attack the Skripals, why was Abigail McCourt not affected when she gave them first aid and why did her highly trained army nurse mother allow her to touch victims of a deadly nerve agent?

The intelligent people who work in Salisbury Hospital cannot possibly be dupes to this grotesque deception, riddled with impossibilities. They are therefore accomplices and criminally responsible. I believe many of the hospital staff suspected MI6 was staging this whole thing but went along with it because of the high level of Cold War, anti-Russian brainwashing of the British population. They saw it as an exciting spy game they were taking part in with their wonderful secret services who had Won the War and Saved the World. It was a question of loyalty to Britain to defend this criminal lie. They must have suspected the Skripals’ blood samples had been laced afterwards with novichok. Perhaps the OPCW did too, since they claimed the traces of novichok were “very pure”. Was that a hint it had never been through any human body? One can sympathize with the Russians for trying to hack the laboratory computers to find out if any of the experts had expressed doubts to each other or suspicions the OPCW had set this up. Since they knew they were victims of a shameless NATO conspiracy to frame them, all they could do was try to expose it by any means they had.

The Russians’ patience and calm in the face of this campaign of lies and hate have been almost saint-like. If the West is not wiped out by the nuclear war they are constantly pushing for with Russia, then one day Britain and all the other NATO vassal states which wrongfully expelled droves of Russian diplomats will have to make Russia an abject apology and pay compensation for the misery caused the Russian people by their illegal sanctions. Is it too much to hope that some people at Salisbury Hospital or in the local police who know the truth will have the courage sooner or later to come forward and expose this vile warmongering deception, and the totalitarian media manipulation by the sinister forces that secretly govern Britain? Do they spare a thought for the Skripals and the state they are in right now — held incommunicado without any charge against them, not represented by any lawyer, and unable to communicate with their family or the public? Surely they are not fooled by that scripted video? Where are the human rights campaigners protesting against this totalitarian sequestration? What world are they living in? Has it not occurred to them that in the era of MI6’s proven involvement in torture, whether in Guantanamo, Abu Graib, black sites or extraordinary rendition to places where people can be tortured to death, Yulia Skripal might be listening every night to her father whimpering in the next cell as the voice goes on repeating: “You Ruskie b******, tell us when you started lying to us.”

The official narrative about the Skripals has been shot full of holes by various dissident commentators in the alternative media. That always begs the question: well, so what really happened? The above alternative narrative, combining both the known facts and speculations to cover the gaps where the facts are still missing, should allow the reader to judge its overall plausibility, compared to the official one. To prove an alternative narrative to the criminal’s story, a prosecutor does not need to establish every single event in the chain, many of which will remain unknown. He only needs to prove that certain key events in the criminal’s narrative are contrary to the known facts, and that these facts are compatible with the alternative narrative. The key facts in this case are the state of the Nina Ricci perfume bottle, clearly never opened after it was laced with novichok and repackaged, and therefore never used to spray novichok anywhere; the impossibility of a deadly nerve agent having a three hour delay in its effects and then affecting two very different people at the same moment; the unlikelihood of a senior army nurse allowing her daughter to touch victims of a nerve agent; the unlikelihood novichok was used (rather than an opiate), given the lack of any effect on the first responders, and the fact Sergeant Bailey’s children were allowed to approach him without wearing hazmat suits, which the nurses, however, wore.

Put those basic problems in the official narrative together with the speed with which the UK government blamed Russia for this event, when there was no more link between Russia and novichok than between Britain and the use of British-invented VX nerve agent to assassinate Kim Yong Un’s half-brother in Kuala Lumpur airport. No nerve agent whose formula has been published is the monopoly of any nation, nor does its use incriminate any nation. This rush to judgment reveals a premeditated plan by Britain to use this event to sabotage Russia’s Football World Cup (which they compared to Hitler’s Olympics) as part of a long-term British goal to isolate, discredit and economically ruin Russia. The need for MI6 to prevent Skripal exposing the Steele Dossier, produced by Skripal’s MI6 handlers, since it would show the degree of Britain’s cynical interference in the American election to discredit Trump and destroy any rapprochement with Russia, formed the motive for MI6 to commit murder, for which it has a considerable reputation. Combining the two things, killing the Skripals and crucifying Russia for it, was no doubt seen as a great coup by MI6. It was seen as even more ingenious to follow up this alleged “chemical weapons” attack on British soil with the fake chemical attack at Douma staged by the White Helmets, founded and financed by MI6. This was aimed at relaunching the war to overthrow Assad and dismantle Syria, giving the Americans and the Israelis its oil fields, and allowing Qatari gas to be piped to Europe to replace Russian gas. All of these fit Britain’s and NATO’s known strategic goals. The speed of the knee-jerk response of NATO countries in expelling Russian diplomats, without any debate or demand for evidence in any parliament, raises the suspicion that this was planned not by MI6 alone but jointly with the CIA and other NATO secret services, which largely control supposedly democratic governments.

The continued NATO harassment, sanctions and campaigns of lies and false accusations against Russia, including the blatant war rhetoric of the British Defence Secretary, do not bode well for the future. For the US to tear up nuclear arms treaties and then blame Russia is beyond shameful: it is destroying all possibility of negotiations to avert war. The Kerch Strait incident staged by the puppet regime in Kiev, sending gunboats into the Kerch Strait without observing the 2003 Protocol requiring them to notify in advance the Port of Kerch (a protocol observed by the dozens of ships that go through the Strait peacefully every day) was clearly part of a NATO plan to set up a major naval clash in the Black Sea. That clash (followed by an attempt to recapture Crimea or at least blow up its magnificent bridge, a reproach to a man who cannot even build a wall) may be expected in coming months, perhaps as a distraction from Brexit or a way of derailing it. NATO, in short, is on a clear trajectory towards war with Russia, which their deluded worldview convinces them they can win. Their initial use of Russia as a scapegoat and bogeyman to unite the NATO vassals against a common threat, keeping Europe in subjection to America, has got out of hand, and is heading, under the impetus of hysterical rhetoric, towards actual war. Unless decent people unite to stop this escalation then the nuclear catastrophe will occur. Exposing the barefaced lie of the Skripal false flag attack may be a step towards averting that global cataclysm.

The timeline of the perfume bottle interests me. Given when it was dumped in bin and how often the bins are emptied. That gap seems to big > Most bin collections are either weekly or fortnightly not 3 months. Also i doubt Charlie Rowley would have been able to rummage in the bottom of the bin so the bottle must have been somewhere close to the top..meaning it had lain close to top of the bin for months with no other rubbish being placed upon it.
This would suggest the placing of the bottle was much later in the timeline

The Independant said the bottle fell apart in Charlies hand...If he had picked it up for a birthday present for Dawn he would not have unwrapped it if it was sealed. Likely that if it was in an unsealed box then Charlie would have previously inspected it to make sure it wasnt just an empty or damaged bottle if he was giving it as a present

Just read an old BBC article that a friend of Mr Skripal used Sergeis car to go and pick his daughter Julia up at airport. Do we know who this "friend " was and why Sergei didnt go himself. Also Julia may have known this friend to recognise him at the airport or at least been told by Sergei.

Poisoned spy Sergei Skripal asked Putin for pardon so he could return to Russia, friend claims

‘Many people shunned him. His classmates felt he had betrayed the Motherland,’ says Vladimir Timoshkov

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/sergei-skripal-vladimi r-putin-nerve-agent-return-russia-pardon-a8271751.html

Former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal had written to Vladimir Putin asking if he could return to his home country before he was poisoned in Salisbury, a friend has said.

The former Russian intelligence officer, who came to Britain in 2010 as part of a spy swap, regretted being a double agent and wanted to be pardoned so he could visit his family in Russia, Vladimir Timoshkov told the BBC.


Mr Skripal and his daughter Yulia remain in a critical condition after they were poisoned with the nerve agent Novichok on 4 March.

The 66-year-old had been accused of working for MI6 over several years, in particular disclosing the names of several dozen Russian agents working in Europe.

He was sentenced to 13 years in a high-security prison in August 2006, before being freed in the 2010 deal which saw 10 Russian sleeper agents expelled from the United States.

According to Mr Timoshkov, his friend, who he had known since school, Mr Skripal did not see himself as a traitor as he had sworn an oath to the Soviet Union.

“Many people shunned him. His classmates felt he had betrayed the Motherland,” he said.

The Kremlin later issued a denial that any such letter was sent to the Russian President.

The attempted assassination sparked a diplomatic crisis between Russia and Britain, which has been supported by its allies in apportioning blame to the Kremlin.

Russia’s ambassador to the UK Alexander Yakovenko sent his well wishes to Mr Skripal and his daughter on Friday and wrote to Wiltshire Police detective sergeant Nick Bailey, who was left seriously ill after he was exposed to the poison as he went to the Skripals’ aid.

Mr Bailey said his experience had been “completely surreal” after he was discharged from hospital.

Skripal told one of his school mates in 2012 that he had made a serious mistake and wanted to go back to Russia. This would be more than enough for MI6 to revoke this idea and act. It looks like Theresa May gained European backing in her blaming Russia by handing over open borders two years after Brexit.

This means a bankrupt corporation has done a deal that will act against the nations peace and security to support a lie, aimed at the British public to form energy against Russia, and, to expand funding for chemical weaponry and a step closer to that coveted big red button called the corporate Contingency Act platform activation..


Yes, indeed: 'Former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal had written to Vladimir Putin asking if he could return to his home country before he was poisoned in Salisbury, a friend has said.':

The Kremlin denies receiving such a lettr, which would make sense as the Post Office here would have likely intercepted his letter, which would have immediately put Skripal into the 'highly expendable' class, kept in mind till HMG wished to open up a big 'False Flag' demonisation on Putin.

FSB Levels Spy Charge at Briton
By Tatyana Gershkovich Aug. 16 2007 00:00
http://old.themoscowtimes.com/sitemap/free/2007/8/article/fsb-levels-s py-charge-at-briton/195011.html

The Federal Security Service accused one-time British diplomat Pablo Miller on Wednesday of recruiting former tax inspector Vyacheslav Zharko on behalf of British intelligence.

Zharko, who turned himself over to the FSB in June, has said he was introduced to British intelligence officers by former FSB officer Alexander Litvinenko and later handed over information about the Russian economy.

The FSB said Miller also had been implicated in the espionage cases of retired intelligence agency Colonel Sergei Skripal and former FSB officer Valery Oyamyae. Skripal was convicted of spying for Britain last year and sentenced to 13 years in prison. Oyamyae was convicted of spying for British and Estonian special services in 2001.

At the time of Oyamyae's conviction, the FSB said Miller was an agent working as the first secretary of the British Embassy and accused him of working alongside the Estonian Interior Ministry's security police department.

The FSB said Miller also went by the name Antonio Alvares de Hidalgo.

The FSB allegations were made in a report carried by Interfax. An FSB spokesman confirmed the report but declined further comment.

The British Foreign Office refused to comment on Miller's association with Zharko or his current status within the British diplomatic corp.

The first public mention of a connection between Zharko and Miller appears to be an Aug. 9 posting on web forum Able2Know.com. The author of the post says he learned that Zharko had identified Antonio Alvares de Hidalgo as his "tutor" from MI6 some time ago, and questions whether the re-employment of an exposed MI6 agent stemmed from the agency's need to "retrench" or whether "the department officers of MI6 are so goofy they make such blunders."

The FSB spokesman refused to comment on when Zharko first identified Miller as his recruiter. He expressed surprise when told of the Internet posting and asked for the web site's address.

Pablo Miller – spyline
https://johnplatinumgoss.wordpress.com/2019/01/28/pablo-miller-spyline  /

1982 According to his LinkedIn account (no longer available) Pablo Miller graduated from Oxford University in 1982 with a degree in Modern Languages and History. Following graduation he attended the British Army officer training academy at Sandhurst.

His commission in the Royal Tank Regiment took him to Germany, Cyprus, Northern Ireland and Brunei.

1984 Lt. Pablo Miller was given some assistance by General Sir Desmond Langley in Cyprus.

1985 Captain Pablo Miller represented his division skiing in a race at which the starter was Princess Anne. Photos here: http://www.4and7royaltankregiment.com/1982-1985/

Yulia Skripal was born in Malta.

1995 Sergei Skripal, a colonel in the GRU, and a number of other Russians were recruited by Milller about this time. Russian author, Nikolai Luzan, in his espionage exposure “The Devil’s Counter-intelligence Dozen”, explains how Skripal was brought on board by the MI6 officer, Pablo Miller.

1997 Pablo Miller became First Secretary of the British embassy in Tallinn recruiting under the name of Antonio Alvarez de Hidalgo. As things stood Skripal was already on a nice little earner secretly importing wine from the GRU authorities enabling him to make extended business trips to Malta and Spain. On one of these the GRU colonel was introduced to a Spaniard named Luis. According to Luzan it was Luis who introduced Skripal to Miller (then posing as Antonio Alvarez de Hidalgo) and they went into business together.

Skripal was described as having a “thirst for profit”. He would sometimes take his wife, Lyudmilla, with him on his business trips. It seems however she knew nothing of his extra-business activities. Before entering into their partnership Miller took Skripal to a strip-club but it was not the Russian’s kind of thing and he went back home to his wife. Miller bought Skripal’s loyalty with a cheque-book and before long, using colleagues within the GRU, files had been collated on some 300 GRU employees.

1999 Skripal resigned from the GRU on health grounds. Soon after his resignation he was issued with a passport and went abroad. Again he made contact with Pablo Miller and resumed espionage activities, this time providing details on the structure of the GRU. Skripal was a greedy man. Greedy men are rarely if ever driven by morals in their decision-making. British Intelligence personnel would have known this and Skripal met with MI6 personnel frequently. He met them in the seaside resort of Izmir in Turkey under the pretence of being a tourist.

This year the Tomlinson list of 116 British Intelligence Officers was released. Apparently Pablo Miller’s name is not on the list and the controllers of the World Wide Web have done a creditable job in wiping clean this list from the internet. There are still a few hard copies available.

2000 Valery Oyamae was another recruit of Pablo Miller’s. Oyamae lived in Moscow and made frequent trips to Estonia. At the time Pablo Miller was operating from the British Embassy in Tallinn as its First Secretary – a cover for his intelligence work. On 15 March 2000 at 7 p.m. Oyamae was arrested at the Leningradsky railway station, Moscow, on espionage charges. He had risen through the ranks of the KGB becoming a senior officer. Though Oyamae was not mentioned by name at the time of his arrest, Pablo Miller, his minder, was named in both Russian and English-reading press.

While Skripal’s handler was Pablo Miller, Miller was answering to Christopher Steele in MI6.

Scot William Hine (or Hein) and Estonian Sergei Petrenko (see 2001) were arrested in Tallin on drug-smuggling charges. They were caught in possession of £2.4 million worth of heroin concealed in the fuel tank of the car they were driving. It is not clear if Robert Bruce Wright and Leslie Brown were with them at the time but they never stood trial.

2001 On 23 April 2001 Valery Oyamae was sentenced to seven years in prison in a Moscow court under article 275. His property was confiscated. Until sentence was pronounced his name had been kept out of the Russian and western media.

This year there was an extradition request from Estonia to the UK for Robert Bruce Wright (35) and Leslie Brown (44) wanted under suspicion of drug-smuggling in conjunction with William Hein (42) and Sergei Petrenko (41). Nobody knows the dark machinations of our security services but from what I can make out Wright and Brown claimed they were not drug-smugglers but secret-agents working against Russia on behalf of Pablo Miller at the British Embassy in Tallinn.

It appears the two Estonians got 3 to 4 years in prison each and Estonia put in a request for extradition of the British citizens. I cannot find an English article on this drug-smuggling event – though there were some. Originally the BBC reported this story. And it was reported in Scotland. It has since gone dead. It looks like they were probably spooks.

https://www.prokuratuur.ee/en/node/1116

2003 Pablo Miller, at this time calling himself Paul, is credited with having arranged the passage of Vyacheslav Zharko, Boris Berezovsky and Alexander Litvinenko (FSB officer) to the UK, which added to the festering cesspool of oligarchs and Mafia-style businessmen already buying political favours and prime properties in London.

Skripal left his latest job in the Russian Department of Foreign Affairs.

2004 Sergei Skripal arrested and detained in custody on charges of espionage. He admitted the charges.

2006 Sergei Skripal convicted of spying and given a 13 year prison sentence. He allegedly confessed to everything. According to the Russian press It would appear that Skripal may have protected his minder because there was no mention of a Miller or Hidalgo by the FSB in 2006. (Source: Kommersant 16.08.2007, p. 4)

Alexander Valterovich Litvinenko died from polonium 210 poisoning.

Pablo Miller took up a post in Bogota, Columbia possibly for his own safety. According to his deleted LinkedIn page he “led the British Government’s flagship project in Bogota, supporting the Colombian state’s programme aimed at countering high-level, drugs-related corruption and impunity.”

2007 Vyacheslav Zharko, a former tax police inspector, spilled the beans in claiming that Pablo Miller recruited him in 2003. He was not caught. Most pertinently he confessed to the FSB when Andrei Lugovoi was accused by the UK of poisoning Alexander Litvinenko. He lost total faith in MI6. It dawned on him that his minders (he named 3 including Pablo Miller) would say anything to try to denigrate Russia and no longer wanted to be part of it.

2009 Pablo Miller’s duty came to an end in Bogota.

Christopher Steele retired as head of the Russian Department of MI6 and founded Orbis Business Intelligence (based in Grosvenor Gardens, London). https://orbisbi.com

2010 Roberto Flórez García convicted in Spain of working for the Russians at the start of the century. It is said he betrayed Skripal as a spy.

Sergei Skripal was exchanged in a deal with the US having served four years of a thirteen year sentence. He came with his wife and daughter to live in Salisbury, the home town of his former minder Pablo Miller.

Pablo Miller was posted to Poland as a counsellor at the British Embassy in Warsaw. On 5 May (shortly before the UK National Election) he wrote a witty tongue-in-cheek letter to the Spectator from Warsaw criticising the apathy of modern youth in being too lazy to vote. This no doubt made his daughters very proud of him!

2011 The Spectator received a letter from Pablo Miller in Poland in praise of Ross Clark and Martin Vander Weyer criticising public sector chief executive salaries compared to those of commanding officers in Helmand, on a mere £70,000 per annum.

2012 Sergei Skripal’s wife, Lyudmilla, died from cancer.

2014 Yulia Skripal returned to Russia.

2015 Pablo Miller received an OBE from Queen Elizabeth II. He retired from MI6 and joined his colleague and former boss Christopher Steele at Orbis Business Intelligence – the company responsible for the “dodgy dossier” on Donald Trump.

2016 Sergei Skripal’s son and older brother of Yulia, Alexander, died from liver failure on a high-speed train in Moscow. This prompted Yulia to remove all family photos from her Facebook account.

Orbis Business Intelligence releases its report on Donald Trump based to a large extent on information supplied by a former Russian intelligence officer.

https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3259984-Trump-Intelligence-All egations.html

There are many speculations that this intelligence officer was Skripal, who perhaps should have got out of the game when Zharko did.

2018 On March 5 the Clinical Services Journal (CSJ) reported “a major incident after two patients were exposed to what was believed to be an opiate . . . an incident . . . in which a man and a woman were exposed to the drug Fentanyl in the city centre.” The drug Fentanyl was redacted later and replaced by “a substance” with the footnote that: “This story was updated on 26 April 2018 to remove suggestion (which was widely speculated and reported at the time of writing) that the substance found was fentanyl.” All credit to the medical journalists who were forced to change the story.

http://dilyana.bg/skripals-poisoned-with-fentanyl/

And all credit to the author, Dilyana Gaytandzhieva, of the blog which first exposed the Novichok lie. If I am not mistaken the photographer in the mirror on the first photo bears an uncanny resemblance to the artist’s impression of Pablo Miller in the featured image at the head of this timeline.

First chilling CCTV of the two Russian novichok assassins in Salisbury

Link

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dgzG4hYatTE
Thank you for watching. Have a nice day!
My channel: https://goo.gl/vCXdrM
Bellingcat is as credible as Beckhams new hair
they take info from armchair detectives or some bloke in the pub said so it must be true and
why has no one picked up on the cctv footage from inside the collectors shop that they stopped to look at the coin display,
The CCTV video is in the on line Daily Mail not even they have mentioned that the direction they are walking is from the Cathedral toward the train station
which contradicts the narrative from Theresa May
every map produced of their movements
and CCTV locations that recorded them have neglected to include the location of the shop that is the opposite side of town
would the location and recorded time contradict the official story that they never visited the cathedral that is approximately 200 meters in the direction they walked from
and at what time was the footage taken as there is no time date stamp on the footage
none of the official maps drawn up showing where they were and time neglect to show the shop they were filmed outside of WHY.

SKRIPAL CASE: ISRAELI EXPERT ON THE WORK OF THE SPECIAL AGENTS
Date of publication: 28 09 2018, 12:05
https://en.news-front.info/2018/09/28/skripal-case-israeli-expert-on-t he-work-of-the-special-agents/


An Israeli expert on international terrorism, writer Alexander Brass, shared his view on the case of the Skripals poisoning in Salisbury. Brass draws parallels between the work of the special services of Israel and Russia – he believes that if to compare the British version with the practice of the special agents, then the absurdity becomes obvious.

“Alexander, so what, in your opinion, happened in Salisbury?”

-There was a rough provocation by the British special services. In my opinion, this is obvious.

– Why do you think so?

“There’s a lot of stupidity on stupidity.” The story with Petrov and Boshirov does not hold up any professional peer review. According to the Brits, the Skripals were poisoned by GRU agents (this is what the department is called, although this is now the Main Directorate of the RF General Staff).

I want to explain how the special services work. If you need someone to eliminate, then this is a very serious operation, which is being prepared for a long time. A very significant material and human resource is allocated. We are talking about dozens of employees. On the territory of this state, an “advanced command post” is being created.

In the operation, a technical support group, a logistic group, a cover group, an external surveillance group and a group of performers are involved.

The performers themselves appear at the very last moment. They do not go anywhere, lighting up on cameras, do not use public transport, but move on rented cars, which they do not rent themselves. And the more they will not stop in hotels, but will live on safe houses provided by the logistics group.

Such groups do not come under the passport of their country, do not go to the embassy for obtaining a visa, leaving fingerprints. This is complete nonsense. Professionals do not work that way.

If the GRU acted, both the killers and the other participants in the operation would come to the UK on the passports of other countries that have visa-free relations with it. Here, two alleged GRU officers go to the embassy, ​​leave their fingerprints there, get a visa, stop at the hotel, pass under all the cells. This you will not find even in ladies’ detective novels.

– Maybe it is unprofessionalism associated with the degradation and decay, which after the collapse of the Soviet Union took place in all structures and institutions of society, including in the special services? Lost skills, methods, no one to teach young people. There is such an opinion.

– This is an opinion at the level of kitchen conversations. Where did the armed forces and the military-industrial complex of the Russian Federation manage to raise such a “bardak” to such a level as they could organize the World Cup and the Olympics at such a high level? The GRU has always been and remains one of the most professional and most intelligent intelligence agencies in the world.

If the GRU decided to eliminate Skripal, then I have a question: why was the “Novichok” used? This is not a remedy, it’s a chemical weapon of mass destruction. It’s like dropping an atomic bomb on a city to kill one criminal. When special services eliminate an object, they always try to do it so that no autopsy shows that he was poisoned.

– Can you give examples?

– I can give many examples. In 1978, the well-known international terrorist Vadia Haddad, one of the founders of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), was killed. “Mossad” did not take responsibility for this, but sewed in a bag you can not hide. A potent biological poison was mixed with chocolate. Within three months he died of a painful and incomprehensible illness in the GDR clinic. His autopsy was conducted at the University of East Berlin. No trace of poison was found. The doctors assumed that he died of leukemia.

– How did you know that he was killed by Mossad?

– Information about this began to leak a few years ago. It came from Algeria. One of the former Mossad agents during another trial gave evidence that he witnessed how this happened, calling the specific names of the performers. This man also confirmed that he was a participant in this operation. This information was also confirmed by other, non-overlapping sources.

– Were there any cases when the Mossad operation ended unsuccessfully and the enemies of Israel were still alive?

– Take the last unsuccessful attempt of the Israelis to kill Khaled Mashaal, one of the leaders of the terrorist organization Hamas. He would have been killd if he had not been given an antidote at the last minute.

Everything happened on September 25, 1997 on one of the streets of Amman – the capital of Jordan. Just some passer-by, who was next to Mashaal, “accidentally” stumbled and splashed the liquid from the can of Coke to his neck. The next day Mashal would have died of a heart attack, and no traces. But the performers were seized on the spot. After that, the King of Jordan Hussein demanded that Israel provide an antidote, and in return promised to release Israeli agents.

– That is, substances that leave no traces are not detected by expertise and imitate death from the disease, the secret services have long been known?

– That’s it. Could the GRU not have been able to use some other poison, and not the “Novichok”, which leaves traces everywhere? If such technologies were in the special services already in the 1950s, do not the GRU have them today?

Let’s talk about the cameras. The UK on this some kind of fad. In no country in the world there is such a number of surveillance cameras per capita.

If I’m not mistaken, about one camera for 15 people. Literally every meter is looked through. MI5, the British counterintelligence service, is considered one of the best in the world. And if Britain took care of Skripal, he was very well guarded. At least his house was hung with all the cameras, which are only possible.

If, according to MI5, these agents visited Salisbury, they came to the house of Skripal and coated the door handle with this substance – so show the records from the cameras! How can it be that it was at this point that the cameras suddenly turned off?

“But maybe these agents found the cameras and turned them off?”

“If you say that the GRU has deteriorated so badly that it has lit up everywhere and left its mark, why did this degraded intelligence agency manage to turn off the surveillance cameras near the Skripal house at the right time?” Where is the logic?

– When our agents killed the Chechen terrorist Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev in Qatar, they got caught and were captured by the local police. True, they carried out the task …

“And how many Israeli agents were arrested?” This does not mean degradation. I do not know what happened after the collapse of the USSR in the GRU, but I know what happened in the Foreign Intelligence Service, since I had been friends with one of the very high-ranking officers of this service for many years in retirement. We had very close, friendly relations with him for many years. Unfortunately, he died a few years ago.

He told me that the degradation of the special services is only an appearance. He retired, because he already had years of service and he did not agree with the mess that was going on in the country. But there was no mess in the secret services! Who wanted to – left. But was there a leak of information? Have they discovered an agent network? Agents of Soviet special services worked all over the world. Have any of them suffered? No one. The mess can be anywhere, but not in the special services.

– Let’s admit. All this really looks strange – first let out Skripal, then kill him. Would not it be easier to just leave him in jail?

– Now about the personality of Sergei Skripal himself. The main version, which is voiced by the British side, is revenge. But in special services there is no such thing as revenge. Neither the Israelis, nor the Russians. Only the Cubans had it. We must understand that the special services are a very practical organization. Why revenge? A person is eliminated only when he can cause real harm. The Skripal has already done harm. He could not do more harm.

– For example, as a lesson to other potential traitors, no?

– No. I once asked my acquaintances who worked in your special services (I have never had any contact with active staff, only with retirees): “Why did not Kalugin be killed?” And they answered me with a counter question: “Why haven’t you eliminated the defector? “I said: he has already done harm. To eliminate him, it is necessary to develop a very serious operation, to send people, people should risk their lives. For the sake of what – for the sake of revenge? They say: “For the same reason, we do not touch Kalugin and do not touch anyone.” Israelis are not even exterminated by former terrorists. At the moment when the terrorist stops terrorist activities, regardless of what he did before, he is left alone. The only ones who were persecuted to the end were Nazi criminals.

– There is an opinion that he was eliminated because he taught at the counterintelligence school and taught young employees how to deal with the GRU.

– And what, in MI5, except for Skripal, no one knows how to do it? I think they know it better than him.

– In such cases, there is a very simple practice. When Skripal was taken on treason, he probably was intelligibly explained: either you go to life imprisonment and you will be in solitary confinement somewhere beyond the Arctic Circle, or you will receive 12 years of strict regime in the European part of Russia. But for this, you must fully tell what you have handed over, and give evidence. To cooperate with the investigation.

Similarly, when the former colonel of the Defense Intelligence of Israel’s Defense Intelligence Department, I did not name him, went into business and got into debt.

He went to Lebanon to buy heroin and conduct a drug deal, and was captured by Hezbollah. He told everything he knew, inflicting enormous damage to Israel’s defense capability. Because he was an officer on this site, he worked for Lebanon.

The Israelis exchanged him, they pulled him out. He was told: let’s make a deal. You will not be prosecuted. But you must thoroughly, in every detail, tell what you told them. We need to know what they know. The same was with Skripal. And there was simply no need to eliminate him.

– So there was no motive for Russian special services?

– There was no motive. Then, imagine: they used “Novichok”, they carried it with them in a bottle from under the perfume. In the practice of special services this does not exist. Performers go light, with other people’s passports. They receive weapons on the spot. And when such a group of liquidators works, it works autonomously, without affecting the local residency. In case of failure, do not harm the residence. When the surveillance is working and the capture team is working, they do not know each other in person, they communicate only through certain communication channels.

– The question is also why the poison did not act instantly, and Skripal was still wandering about for a few hours.

– It’s a different matter. The British are so disrespectful to Russia that even provocation can not be done at a decent level. It’s even humiliating. Therefore, Russia does not comment on this in any way. And why is it necessary to comment on some kind of nonsense?

It took half a year to Brits to find the “suspects.” Although they left their full personal data and fingerprints in the embassy when they received visas. This is a separate nonsense. Then Russia said: please! Here they are, here’s their interview. If they were active GRU officers, they would not have left their fingerprints in the embassy for anything.

“Who are they?”

– I do not know who they are, but certainly not employees of special services. If the GRU needed to kill Skripal, he would now be dead. This would have been done quietly and without scandal.

“Why Britain needs this?”

– This is a well-thought-out strategy of demonization and international isolation of Russia. In the UK, as in the rest of the Western world, everything works very simply. Most people do not read newspapers at all. And those who read, do not understand half. But everyone sees the headlines. Provocation with the Skripals is needed to exclude the Russian Federation from the Commission for Investigating the Use of Chemical Weapons in Syria. This is a minimum program.
