Yesterday, one of the leaders of the famous British Scotland Yard, the head of the counterterrorism unit, Neil Basu, told The Guardian reporters that no real evidence was found in the case of the poisoning of the former GRU employee Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the British town of Salisbury last year.
“We are police, so we need to work with evidence. There was a huge amount of speculation about who was responsible, who gave orders - all of them were based on expert assessments in Russia. I need evidence, ”said the British detective.
Well, what kind of “experts on Russia” are we here long known. Now here are the British police in the know. Of course, the Skripals case is of a difficult political nature and cannot so easily resolve. By the way, Boris Johnson, while still the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the United Kingdom, took an active part in the promotion of the “poisoning of the century” scandal.
It is worth recalling that in the UK special services are located in the structure of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Naturally, the honest detective Neil Basu immediately made a reservation that Scotland Yard was not ready to stop the investigation of the Skripal poisoning case and that he would certainly seek extradition to the Kingdom of the only suspects Boshirov and Petrov to interrogate them. There must be at least something in such a loud resonant matter of the real.
Let me remind you that as a result of the scandal inflated by the British media, politicians and special services in connection with the alleged involvement of the Russian special services in the poisoning by combat poison of a former GRU employee Sergei Skripal and his daughter, the degree of anti-Russian hysteria in Western society was raised to unprecedented heights. Diplomats were sent from a number of European countries, economic and political sanctions were introduced.
So, more than a year later, Scotland Yard honestly declares that there is no evidence of any Russian citizens participating in the poisoning of the Skripals. Some speculations of some "experts".
Here it’s worth recalling a fragment of President Putin’s interview for the new documentary film by the famous American director Oliver Stone “In the Struggle for Ukraine”, which touched on the subject of the Skripaly scandal. “I honestly don’t really believe it. I don’t believe ... If they wanted to poison, they would poison! ”Putin drew attention. “No, something is wrong here. Maybe it was just a scandal that was needed? ”Suggested the Russian president.
In turn, the commentary circulated by the Russian Embassy in the United Kingdom says in plain text: “All the arguments on the basis of which the so-called evidence base of Russia's involvement in this mysterious incident was built and which the former British Prime Minister Theresa May loudly stated, failed miserably. Obviously, the reason for this behavior lies in the fact that the disclosure of all the details of this dark history is not in the interests of official London. "
Such a cannon. Teresa May brewed all this mess, now she is an ordinary member of parliament. Served the ball Boris Johnson, now the Prime Minister for Brexit. And under attack is the reputation of Scotland Yard. And who now recalls their angry public anti-Russian escapades about the Salisbury incident of European leaders?
It’s like the famous Colin Powell test tube with washing powder, which, incidentally, was also obtained by the British secret services. Spoons later, of course, were found a few years later, and Iraq was collectively ravaged and hanged Saddam Hussein. As a result, ISIS * was created and provoked a migration crisis with a million-strong horde of refugees on the streets of European cities. And most importantly, no one has answered anything so far.
Meanwhile, all of London is buzzing like a beehive with rumors about Boris Johnson’s recipes for a “tough” exit from the EU. Less than 90 days remain before hour. A clock at the Prime Minister’s residence on Downing Street 10 has a one-second countdown to Brexit.
* “Islamic State” (ISIS, ISIS) - the organization was recognized as terrorist by decision of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation of December 29, 2014.
