Hello dear members of the ATS forum!

In discussions with my opponents on the forum lately, I have been constantly receiving unproven reproaches that Russia and Putin are poisoning everyone in a row with "Novichok", well, his hobby is to poison unwanted people. Most of these accusations come from my British colleagues. Yesterday, in a conversation with a colleague Kenzo, I promised that I would publish an investigation into the Skripal poisoning. To avoid childish accusations that I am a "Kremlin propagandist for money", I will only use Western sources in my investigation. No Russian traces, if someone does not like the truth, then relate all claims to yourself.



On March 7, 2018, in The Elephant In The Room, renowned analyst, publicist, TV presenter, human rights activist and former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray wrote that lethal nerve agents, including sarin and VX, are being produced just 8 miles from the site of the poisoning of Skripal and his daughter at the secret military facility Porton Down. The facility produces and stores the largest stocks of nerve agents in Europe. However, it was decided to shift responsibility for the use of weapons to Russia, backing it up with a large-scale information and political attack instead of evidence. The hysteria reached such intensity that even the London Times, which has been considered the main conservative newspaper since 1785, in its editorial “Closing Ranks” suggested seizing and confiscating Aeroflot planes only on the grounds that “in the past, enemies flew them to Britain” The oldest conservative The Times, the stronghold and mouthpiece of the British establishment, is actually calling for the commission of terrorist acts against a UN member state.

In the article "Porton Down Scientists Under Extreme Pressure to Confirm Nerve Gas As Russian" on the website of the Strategic Culture Foundation, Craig Murray writes that Porton Down's staff and scientists are under intense pressure from the authorities to confirm that the nerve agent who poisoned Skripal is a Russian-made Novichok gas. After a long and tedious meeting of the Academic Council of Porton Down, a compromise solution was made with the wording identifying the agent as "the type developed by Russia." This formulation was later used by Theresa May in Parliament, Boris Johnson at the BBC and the UK at the UN Security Council. Murray emphasizes that the inspectors of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons of the OPCW for more than 10 years have had access to all types of Russian chemical weapons, including those agents that the West, at the suggestion of Vil Mirzayanov, calls “Novichok”. In 2016, under the full control of OPCW inspectors, the destruction of the last batch of Russian chemical weapons out of all 40 thousand tons was completed. The American chemical weapons destruction program will be officially completed only in 3 years.

One of the first mentions of Novichok gas in the open press was back in 1999.



On May 25, 1999, The New York Times wrote that the Pentagon, in cooperation with the Uzbek government, took part in the "demilitarization and disinfection of the Soviet chemical weapons plant in Nukus." The newspaper reported that the plant was a major USSR research and test site for a new secret lethal chemical weapon called Novichok. This agent has been at the disposal of the United States for a long time, and its formula is widely known thanks to Mirzayanov's book, which can be freely purchased on Amazon.

Nerve agents, classified in the West as "Novichok", were among others produced and tested in the UK at Porton Down. Back in 2000, the British edition of the Independent wrote in the article "Porton Down: Investigation 'now looking into 45 deaths" that the police were investigating at least 45 deaths resulting from chemical weapons tests at Porton Down.

The string of deaths began with the death in 1953 of Ronald Madisson as a result of exposure to the nerve gas Zarin V. Investigations began following statements from 20,000 "volunteer" former military personnel who tested chemical weapons at Porton Down over the past 80 years. The police leaked that by 2000 the number of deaths had reached 70. The rest of the "volunteers" received a whole bunch of diseases - respiratory, skin, heart, lung diseases, vision loss. But the most interesting part of the article is written at the end:

“As part of their investigation, detectives visited the United States. The Pentagon has agreed to compensate servicemen whose health has suffered from similar experiments with nerve gases conducted there. "

As we can see, the practice of poisoning people in Salisbury has an extremely long and extensive history and is not something out of the ordinary. By 2011, the number of lawsuits from victims of exposure to nerve agents in Porton Down reached 369.

In Salisbury, several very mysterious deaths of scientists were noted, whose bodies were found like Skripal in the streets and parks, and who were blamed on suicide. In 2012, the British edition of the Daily Mail published an article "Suicide riddle of weapons expert who worked with David Kelly: Scientist tells wife he is going for a walk, then takes his life in a field ... just like his friend", which describes the mysterious death of a scientist from Porton Down, Dr. Richard Holmes, who told his wife that he "left the house for a walk," and after a while his body was found in the park. Holmes's death occurred a few weeks after his resignation from Porton Down. This death in Britain was immediately compared to the mysterious death of UN Iraqi weapons inspector Dr. David Kelly in 2003.

Dr. Kelly was found dead after the start of parliamentary hearings on the use of chemical weapons in Iraq. Kelly was the source of the leaked information that the Blair government falsified evidence of Iraq's presence and use of chemical weapons, the so-called Iraqi dossier, leading to the UK's joining the US Army and the invasion of Iraq. All the facts stated in the dossier turned out to be false, and Prime Minister Tony Blair was eventually forced to publicly apologize. However, this apology did not in any way justify the invasion of Iraq, the death of hundreds of thousands of people, including Dr. Kelly.

In the course of the judicial investigation into Kelly's death, the famous request of Lord Hutton arose, as a result of which the death was ruled a suicide. Kelly allegedly, while under the influence of Coproxamol, committed suicide by cutting his left wrist, although all the facts at the crime scene denied this. In 2007, a book by MP and former Home Secretary Norman Baker, The Strange Death of David Kelly, was published in parts in the Daily Mail. In this book, Baker claims that Dr. Kelly was killed.

“I am convinced that this death cannot be suicide. Medical evidence does not support this, and the state of mind and personality of David Kelly suggests otherwise. It was not an accident, so I was left with the conclusion that it was murder. "

In 2014, the film "Secret Files: Porton Down" was released, which details various facts about the activities of the British secret laboratory for the production of nerve agents.



For grisly details of the Porton Down chemical facility, see the Daily Mail article "WMD Britain: How MoD scientists tested chemical weapons including anthrax and the PLAGUE on soldiers and members of the public - and even released dangerous bacteria on the Tube." For 50 years of laboratory activity, 21,000 volunteers were fraudulently involved in experiments. They were exposed to nerve agents, sarin, anthrax and plague. In 2008 alone, the UK government apologized and paid compensation to 670 victims of the experiments.

Ulf Schmidt, a history lecturer at the University of Kent who acted as an expert in the investigation of Porton Down's activities, published Secret Science: A Century of Poison Warfare and Human Experiments, in which, in particular, he claimed that on July 26, 1963, scientists from Porton Down released in the London Underground spores of bacteria Bacillus globigii, which then, according to the British classification, were imitators of biological weapons. The British government decided to conduct an experiment on its unsuspecting citizens in order to find out the ways in which bacteria can enter through the ventilation systems of the subway. Although the bacteria were considered harmless at the time, they are now proven to cause food poisoning, eye infections, and even potentially fatal sepsis. The government further classified this experiment for national security purposes. The article also details deadly experiments in which volunteers were exposed to various toxic substances. And also the subsequent deaths of people.

In 2015, the Daily Star published EXCLU SIVE: Major security breaches at testing ground for chemical and biological weapons, which described the biggest security breaches in Porton Down while working with chemical and biological agents.

- In January 2011, a scientist dropped a sealed box containing 36 plates of the Hazard Group 3 biological agent. This group includes some of the most deadly viruses that can cause serious or fatal illness in humans. Six of the plates were shattered and their contents spilled onto the floor.

- In February 2013, an employee discovered droplets in his decontamination suit while working in the Containment Level 4 lab, where the deadliest agents are tested.

The article quotes the words of a senior government official:

“Scientists at Porton Down are working on one of the deadliest biological and chemical agents the world has ever produced. There should be no mistakes. "



In her, thorough investigation of Porton Down's activities, Bulgarian journalist Dilyana Gaitandzhieva argues that the facility is funded by the Pentagon. The total funding reaches $ 70 million. In the field of experiments with chemical weapons, British military scientists were funded by the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency DTRA to test chemical agent systems under the Pentagon's $ 39.7 million program (2012-2017) in Porton Down. Documents prove that DTRA is funding animal experiments with chemical agents at a secret British military laboratory.

n 2016, Porton Down scientists, along with their colleagues at the US Army Medical Research Institute for Chemical Defense, published the results of a collaborative study of a delineated gene expression profile of lung tissue following inhalation exposure to sulfite mustard in a large, anesthetized pig. According to funding information, this work was carried out under two contracts with the US Department of Defense DTRA. During the Porton Down experiment, 16 pigs were exposed to mustard gas for approximately 10 minutes. Twelve hours after the irradiation, the animals were killed (three of them died during the experiment due to complications). A full autopsy was performed in order to determine the damage to the lungs caused by inhalation of sulfur mustard gas.

Sulfur mustard is a chemical warfare agent first used on the battlefield in World War I. It has been classified as a Class 1 human carcinogen, which means it can cause cancer as well. Mustard gas agents are regulated under the 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention as substances that are not used other than in chemical warfare.

The last use of sulfur mustard in battle was confirmed in Syria in 2016. According to the BBC, terrorists from the Russian-banned Islamic State (ISIS) used mustard gas against government forces in Deir ez-Zor. It was confirmed that the same chemical gas was used by ISIS against the Kurds in northern Iraq. According to The Independent, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has confirmed that laboratory tests have confirmed the use of mustard gas after some 35 Kurdish fighters fell ill on the battlefield in August 2015.

Porton Down scientists completed a $ 2 million military program five months ago in which they experimented with the effects of chemical gas on animals, according to information obtained from the US federal contract registry. This program was funded by the United States Department of Defense on behalf of the United States American Institute for Medical Research and Chemical Defense (USAMRICD) and was launched in 2008 and continued in 2012. Work on this program included testing the Phosgene gas. This involved continuing to develop a model to create a reproducible phosgene injury over a 24 hour period. According to policy documents, the goal was to monitor the development of acute lung injury after exposure to phosgene. Phosgene was widely used as a chemical weapon, especially during the First World War.

Trials using nerve agents VX and VM on guinea pigs were conducted at Poton Down in 2015. The project was funded by the UK Department of Defense. Interestingly, the guinea pigs also lived in the house of Sergei Skripal in Salisbury, just a few kilometers from the secret chemical and biological military laboratory. A photo of Skripal's pets - a cat and guinea pigs - was posted by his daughter Yulia on Facebook. Was it these pigs that poisoned Skripal and his daughter at home, as stated in the latest report from Scotland Yard?



In a 2015 report to the UK Parliament, the UK Department of Defense confirms the use of animals for military chemical and biological experiments. The report states:

“DSTL prides itself on providing cutting edge science and technology for the benefit of national defense and security. Part of his job is to provide safe and effective countermeasures against the threat posed by chemical and biological weapons and to improve the routine casualty regime on the battlefield, which currently cannot be achieved without the use of animals. "



A well-known photograph of Skripal and his daughter in a pub just before they were found poisoned on a bench. During this period, Skripal's phone was disconnected from positioning for 4 hours. The photo clearly shows from the number of glasses on the table that the Skripals were in the campaign of two more people. One of them took this photo, and his face was reflected in the mirror behind Skripal's back. Who is this man?

This man is very similar to MI6 agent Pablo Miller, who recruited Skripal as a British double agent in 1995. Miller also worked at MI6 with Boris Berezovsky and Alexander Litvinenko. The results of this work are now known - the death of both. Pablo Miller lives next to Sergei Skripal's house in Salisbury and is considered his friend. Interestingly, Pablo Miller worked with former MI6 agent Christopher Steele at Orbis Business Intelligence, who created the "dirty dossier" about Donald Trump. It is highly likely that Skripal was involved in creating fake files in the dossier against Trump, for which Hillary Clinton's campaign paid more than $ 168,000. Perhaps this is the motive behind the poisoning. Tellingly, the third person, like Pablo Miller, who took this photo, is not mentioned anywhere.

The British press mentions Pablo Miller and Sergei Skripal in connection with British military intelligence Colonel Hamish de Bretton-Gordon. Morning Star's article "The media has not considered how Russophobia is benefitting big business" directly links it to the Skripal campaign. Bretton-Gordon is one of the founders of the infamous "White Helmets" in Syria, a former assistant director of the Army Intelligence Service under the Ministry of Defense. Prior to that, Bretton-Gordon served as commander of the British Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense (CBRN) Regiment and NATO Rapid Response Battalion. Bretton-Gordon is the Managing Director of CBRN Avon Protection Systems based in Melksham, Wiltshire. In 2017, the company received £ 50 million from US military contracts and another £ 63.3 million from other sources. The White Helmets propaganda group in Syria was founded and operated by British intelligence officer James Le Meserier with British and American government funds. Bretton-Gordon in White Helmets manages the creation of falsified chemical weapons use by Syria. The UK's use of Porton Down products in Syria was recently confirmed by the Special Monitoring Mission in Syria by tweeting a photo of the products.

The above-mentioned Craig Murray in his article "F irst Recorded Successful Novichok Synthesis was in 2016 - By Iran, in Cooperation with the OPCW" completely refutes the words of Theresa May that "only Russia could produce a Novice." It turns out that at the end of 2016, Iranian scientists set out to find out to what extent agents, called Novice, can actually be obtained from commercially available components. Iran has managed to synthesize a number of Novice agents. Iran did this in full cooperation with the OPCW and immediately reported the results to the OPCW so that these agents could be added to the chemical weapons database. Apparently it was this step of Iran that kept Israel, and after it the United States, from accusing Iran of terrorist acts on the territory of Great Britain. Russia, on the other hand, did not engage in such research.

Interestingly, as a result of his many studies in the Skripal and Novichok case, Craig Murray makes a startling conclusion about the involvement in the poisoning of Israel. Israel possesses vast stocks of chemical weapons, but has always refused to submit them to the OPCW. In a 2013 Foreign Polisy article, "Exclusive: Does Israel Have Chemical Weapons Too?" cites CIA documents on the production and stockpiles of Israeli chemical weapons. Israel is not a party to the Chemical Weapons Convention and is not a member of the OPCW. Israel signed the agreement in 1993 but refused to ratify it, as that would have meant inspecting and destroying its chemical weapons. Israel undoubtedly has the technical capabilities to manufacture the Novice that most other countries cannot.

Official Israel very carefully approached the accusations in the Skripal case. He did not apply sanctions and expel diplomats. A secret Israeli intelligence report to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman acknowledged that although the military chemical agent used to poison Sergei Skripal and his daughter was originally produced in the USSR, today at least 20 other countries are producing and accumulate illegal chemical agents. Israel is taking a wait-and-see attitude and is waiting for the position of the West and the linking of this issue with its main problem - Iran and Syria. But it would also be wrong to regard Israel as a passive player. On March 15, the Hebrew-language website Ynet published an article by Ronen Bergman, author of a doctoral dissertation on MOSSAD and several books, including "Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israel's Targeted Assassinations" The "creator" of the Novice Anatoly Kuntsevich.

Anatoly Kuntsevich - Soviet and Russian scientist in the field of organic and applied chemistry, Academician of the USSR Academy of Sciences, Lieutenant General, one of the creators of Soviet chemical (binary) weapons. Since 1972 he has been involved in the development of chemical weapons. In 1993 he was appointed the representative of the Russian Federation in the Syrian "Environmental Center" in Jamrain. In 1995, the US State Department passed personal sanctions against Kuntsevich. At the same time, he, who worked as the director of the RAS Ecotoximetry Center, was charged with smuggling a dual-use substance.

According to the Israelis, it is Kuntsevich who is the creator of the agents of the Novice series. Israeli intelligence has been monitoring Kuntsevich's activities since the 70s and went to the Novichok project and its creator. Moreover, Israel claims that in the 80s all work on this project was stopped, and in the 90s Kuntsevich allegedly transferred his activities to Syria. Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak allegedly even shared this information with the Russian leadership, which responded with silence. As a result, in 2002 Anatoly Kuntsevich was found dead on board a plane flying from Aleppo to Moscow. Official Israel in every possible way dismisses all accusations of his involvement in the death of Kuntsevich.

In most cases Israel has always acted very carefully in relation to Russia, especially recently, when Russia has grown stronger in the military and geopolitical fields. Israel prefers to remain in the shadows and act from behind and with the hands of its counterparties from the United States and European countries.

At the end of my investigation about the Skripals, I want to say two words about Navalny's "poisoning". The scandal is in full swing. New facts and details emerge every day. Moscow was silent until recently, but when Chancellor Merkel made his stupid statement, new facts began to emerge from Russia every day. Russia goes over to the counter-offensive. The last two facts.

The magazine Der Spiegel delivered a major "Moscow retaliatory strike". He wrote that "Novichok" was found at Navalny and on a bottle of water that he took with him on the road. This bottle was handed over by Navalny's relatives. It is stipulated that it is possible that Navalny himself "poisoned" this bottle when he drank from it. All over the world, this caused Homeric laughter, since Spiegel clearly framed Merkel with this version.

How could a bottle get to Germany if Navalny was in a state of artificial coma in Omsk? Where did Navalny get the bottle if there was no bottle in any of the videos from the airport and the plane? How then did this bottle get back to relatives and secretly was taken to Germany? Why did none of Navalny's relatives in contact with the bottle become infected with Novichok? If this bottle exists, then how did Navalny's relatives know that there were traces of the Novichok on it and took it to Germany?
There are many more questions, but one fact - with this publication, Spiegel strongly framed Merkel.

And the second message. As the information publication Life wrote, Navalny was accompanied on his trip by a secret fellow traveler - a young beautiful woman. She, together with Navalny, got off in Omsk and disappeared. The agency found this woman. She lived in the hotel "Ibis Siberia Omsk", this is Maria Pevchikh. She has lived in London for a very long time, is actively involved in sports and is studying self-defense techniques according to the US Navy SEAL system.




She has a chain of bookstores in the UK and Australia. Singers is financially independent, and also has great strong ties with well-known émigré oppositionists Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Yevgeny Chichvarkin. A woman visits Russia two or three times a year, staying in her mother's apartment. During these visits, she accompanies Navalny incognito; when traveling around Russia, she certainly uses a VPN. Also, you will not find her in any social network, there is not a single joint photograph of the Singers and Navalny, despite the fact that their secret relationship has lasted for more than a decade. Life continues its investigation with the aim of obtaining information about the connections of Maria Pevchikh with the British special services.

Well, at the end, I will tell you, dear members of the ATS forum, the most popular version of Navalny's poisoning in Russia. It looks like this:

Navalny could have been poisoned by Skripal's second cat, who escaped from the British special services. Remember the British killed only one Skripals cat? The second cat escaped and is still not found. So, this runaway cat could easily make his way through the tunnel under the English Channel to the mainland, then reach Tomsk, where he met Navalny, to whom he had his own scores. The result of this meeting could be an aggravation of the blogger, which led him to a hospital bed. This version looks more plausible than all the ridiculous accusations against Russia that we hear.

I very much apologize to the members of the forum for the fact that my investigation turned out to be too large. Even I find it difficult to read it to the end. Just kidding. But I hope that after him the accusations from my British friends will stop, or will be just as well-reasoned.

Thank.

Why not? If the FSB can't really poison anyone with the deadly Novichok. Only one cat died, and even that was killed by the British.)))
You read a huge article in 3 minutes. Colossal !!!

Well, it seems MI5 were just as incompetant in being unable to stop the two Russian agents from running around southern England, poisoning at least four people, one of whom died. So, to believe the latter and not the possibility of the former amounts to logical inconsistency and has to be rejected for that reason.

Perfectly! so write about this the same reasoned investigation that I conducted.
Is someone bothering you?)))

Ok this has so much misinformation im going to have to tackle it over the next couple of days, Oh and the guinea pig thing was absolutely hilarious. first they were testing VX this is made by the british in 60s. so naturally they know how to make it now the purpose was to test bioscavenger. This is an attempt to make an antedote to nerve agents and apparently it does help according to the tests However all the guinea pigs used were dead within 2 days. So no she couldnt have taken it as a pet thats silly. Without treatment nerve agents will kill you within hours. Why is novichok so dangerous its about 6 times more leathal then even VX. Now wen you make nerve agents you have whats called a bio signature. However this alone doesnt tell you how it was made only what the final product is. This bio signature can also be used to even tell you what lab it was produced in especially if its a binary weopon. In them you have whats called precursers this is what you would use to make sure your nerve agent just doesnt evaporate away for example these are secrets. You dont allow others to know what precursers you use this formula is so specific even 2 people in the same lab may not be the same.

Guys, disregard krelin's propaganda of this Russian Troll. He's either from Prigozhin's "troll factory" or Putin's PR management group. No ordinary Russian would ever put so much effort into the pro kremlin driven posts he concocts here.

You went to a lot of work here all in 1 day? Its like you had it to hand or something to try and protect Putin and blame someone else for the Skripals and Navalny's poisoning, has he threatened you with being poisoned if you don't turn ATS pro-Putin, you might want to wipe down all surfaces in that propaganda/troll factory because I don't think it will work???

I take it you never read the Bellingcat website and their investigation in to the Russian GRU agents who poisoned the Skripals? The evidence is there for all to see.

bellingcat website and search results on the Skripals

Here's just a small excerpt of just one of the many parts of the investigations in to the GRU agents that did the poisoning.




Full report: Skripal Poisoning Suspect Dr. Alexander Mishkin, Hero of Russia
October 9, 2018
GRU
Russia

Read The Insider Russian report on this same topic here.

In a preceding report on the investigation into the two suspects in the Skripals poisoning case, Bellingcat and its reporting partner the Insider disclosed the identity of one of the two suspects. The person travelling under the alias of Ruslan Boshirov was identified as GRU’s Col. Anatoliy Chepiga, recipient of Russia’s highest state award.

Bellingcat can now report that it has conclusively identified the second suspect, who travelled to Salisbury under the alias Alexander Petrov. We already produced evidence that “Alexander Petrov” is not an authentic persona, but an undercover alias for an officer of a Russian security agency. In a later report, we established that “Petrov” was specifically working for Russia’s military intelligence, the GRU.

Alexander Mishkin was born on 13 July, 1979 in the village of Loyga, in the Archangelsk District in Northern European Russia. Loyga, inhabited by just over a thousand residents, is so remote that it has no road access to the rest of Russia, and for most of the year is only reachable via a narrow-gauge railroad. Alexander Mishkin lived in his home village until at least 1995, until he was sixteen. For a large part of his school years, Mishkin lived with his grandmother, Loyga’s only medical practitioner at the time.

Incomplete border crossing data obtained by Bellingcat shows that in the period 2010-2013 Mishkin travelled — under his undercover persona of Petrov — multiple times to Ukraine, and often crossed by car into and back from the self-declared Transnistrian Republic where he stayed for short periods of time. His last trip to Ukraine was in mid-December 2013. Mishkin’s travel itinerary from 2016 and on was reported previously by us.

Until early September 2014, Mishkin’s registered home address in Moscow was Khoroshevskoye Shosse 76B, the address of the headquarters of the GRU. Bellingcat has confirmed that until approximately the same time, August 2014, Col. Chepiga was also registered as “residing” at this address. This address registration did not mean that the two physically lived at the GRU headquarters but that their actual place of residence was kept confidential.


excerpt from a second investigation into both GRU agents on bellingcats website.




Alexander Petrov – a fake cover persona for a yet unidentified Russian individual – is not a civilian but linked to one of Russia’s security services. This assessment was based on an exhaustive analysis of “Petrov” passport dossier as obtained from the Russian central passport database.
Petrov and Boshirov made last-minute travel plans to fly to the United Kingdom, which – coupled with the double-booking of return flights on two consecutive dates – makes the “tourism” explanation implausible.
Petrov and Boshirov travelled on international passports that differed by 3 consecutive digits, making it implausible that they were civilians who obtained their passports through the regular, entropic passport application process available to Russian citizens.

Since the publication of the first part of this investigation, other media have followed suit with obtaining access to, and disclosing the passport file of “Ruslan Boshirov” – the second suspect in the Skripals poisoning. The leaked passport file extracts similarly displayed characteristics atypical of a civilian person’ passport. Bellingcat can confirm the authenticity of the leaked passport file of “Boshirov”, and that it contains all three markings that helped identify “Petrov” as a security-service asset: “Top Secret” annotations, a blank biographical page referring to a secret attached letter, a “do not provide information” stamp, and issuing authority unit 770001, exclusively used for state VIPs and intelligence officers. In addition, “Boshirov” also has no recorded history prior to the issuance of his domestic ID passport in 2010 (2009 in “Petrov”’s case)

GRU Officers.
Bellingcat and the Insider can confirm definitively that both “Alexander Petrov” and “Ruslan Boshirov” are active GRU officers. This conclusion is based both on objective data and on discussions with confidential Russian sources familiar with the identity of at least one of the two persons.


Maybe you want to do an investigation on were Novichok was developed and created?
I'll give you a hand, it was created by Russia!
The U.S. believe they were developed at the Chemical Research Institute in Nukus, Soviet Uzbekistan and possibly may have been tested in a research centre in Krasnoarmeysk near Moscow.



This class of organophosphate nerve agents was the fruit of a Cold War-era effort by the then-Soviet Union to develop chemical weapons. Operating under the code name Foliant, the programme created a number of Novichok variants, continuing into the early 1990s. Russian scientist Vil Mirzayanov, who disclosed the programme’s existence before he defected to the West, wrote a 2008 book about secret Soviet-era chemical weapons experimentation. Now 85 and living in the United States, he has freely voiced his suspicions about Novichok’s continuing use.

Guys, disregard krelin's propaganda of this Russian Troll. He's either from Prigozhin's "troll factory" or Putin's PR management group. No ordinary Russian would ever put so much effort into the pro kremlin driven posts he concocts here.

The photo clearly shows from the number of glasses on the table that the Skripals were in the campaign of two more people. One of them took this photo, and his face was reflected in the mirror behind Skripal's back. Who is this man?


Actually it doesn't since the glasses are empty and if you look around glasses are preposition on the tables as what is normal in many restaurants over there. Not sure what that means other than it could be his camera and the guy taking the picture the waiter for all we know.

You can assume anything. If you are an Englishman, then go to Salisbury, take a picture of the bartender, waiter, ask, and so on. I don't mind. But claiming that this is a waiter without knowing it is not a very good move.
