But that makes zero sense. The world already knew that. Not only is Russia a world-class nuclear power, but they've poisoned plenty of defector-spies with radioactive substances. And if they were putting the world on notice, why the denials? Why ask for evidence? Why would May refuse to turn over evidence?
Not saying Russia can't possibly be guilty. They may well be. Just that the current information is weak, and no evidence has been presented demonstrating their guilt.
I personally don't care either way. Spies (especially defectors or those who are "doubled") are always living on borrowed time. Just interesting to me how far the left is willing to go to push us into war with nuclear-armed Russia. ....while the same forces ignore the immeasurable atrocities committed by communist North Korea, socialist Venezuela, Cuba (some "leaders" even cried when this POS died) etc. Interesting...
No problem with you all going after Russia. But you're also going to go after North Korea and other pariah states.
but no longer produced in Russia after 1993, as the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize winning Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has confirmed. Its chemical formula has been made public, which means that at least in theory anyone could produce it.

My suggestion for what its worth, is that the stuff in its original state would have finished off any one who got near it, but the sample used was probably old and chemically degraded because it hasn't been stored under the correct conditions. This means it has nothing to do with anyone that knows much about it.
