“Deadly poisoned” Sergei Skripal has revived and may get a new identity in the US.
On April 8, the British newspaper “Sunday times” referring to the sources in the British Secret Intelligence Service reported that Sergei and Yulia Skripal would be offered new identities in the USA to protect them from further murder attempts.
On March 4, the Russian ex-spy and his daughter were poisoned in the UK by the nerve agent “Novichok”. London rushed to accuse Russia in the incident, starting to expel Russian diplomats. Moscow stated that the UK was mocking the international law and ethics unreasonably blaming Russia.
The discussion of the intelligence officials at MI6 with the CIA concluded that this measure of the relocation would safe Skripals and give them a possibility to help in the investigation of poisoning.
“The obvious place to resettle them is in America, because they’re less likely to be killed there and it’s easier to protect them there under a new identity,” the undisclosed intelligence source added.
On April 6, the doctors of the Salisbury District Hospital told the British agency BBC News that Mr Skripal was responding well to treatment and “improving rapidly”. Sergei Skripal’s was no longer in the critical condition. Since the Yulia Skripal’s official statement on April 5, her state of health has continued to strengthen.
Meanwhile, on April 6, the BBC News reported that the UK had refused to give the visa to Victoria Skripal, Yulia’s cousin, because “the application did not comply with the Immigration Rules.” The government source also told that it appeared Russia was “trying to use Viktoria as a pawn”.
On April 7, the Russian Ambassador in the UK Alexander Yakovenko asked for the meeting with the UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to discuss the reasons of the refusal to grant Victoria’s visa.
“The stubborn refusal to cooperate, to provide transparency and to answer the numerous questions means Britain has something to hide”, Yakovenko said.
Later, Victoria told the “BBC news” she didn’t have enough money in her bank account to satisfy the visa requirements.
However, the Russian government claims that the visa refuse is politically motivated and leaves many questions.
“The most serious problem for London now and in the future is the investigation’s transparency”, Yakovenko said to the Russian news agency Sputnik.
Now, the Skripal case “is falling apart” in the eyes of the international community. Thus, the UK is trying to conceal the details of the failed provocation and confront attempts to launch an independent and transparent investigation.
