Russian Foreign Ministry Slams MSM Coverage, British Approach Over Skripal Case

On May 4, a spokeswoman for the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova stressed that blocking of information to mass media on the Skripal poisoning case could prove the involvement of British authorities in this anti-Russian provocation:

“The media campaign on this incident unleashed by the British side has subsided. All interest seems to have disappeared when it came down to the need to give straight answers to specific questions.”

Maria Zakharova also addressed the issue of the nerve agent used in the poisoning. The spokeswoman pointed false allegations of the UK that Novichok had been produced “in Russia only”.

More countries support Russia’s view at this situation. As an example, Zakharova mentioned the statement by Czech President Milos Zeman. On May 3, Zeman told Czech TV channel Barrandov that small amounts of the Novichok nerve agent were produced and stored in the Czech Republic.

After the March 4 poisoning of Skripals, the UK claimed that the substance used in the attack had been a Novichok-class nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union. London and its allies rushed to accuse Russia of being involved in the incident. Moscow rejected the accusations, describing them as a provocation against Russia. On April 29, Maria Zakharova stated that the UK media keeps silence over any details of the case.

During the briefing, Zakharova also noted that Moscow seriously doubts the information on the amount of the substance used to poison the Skripals. On May 3, the New York Times quoted Director-General of the OPCW Ahmet Uzumcu, as saying that about 50 to 100 grams of liquid nerve agent were used in the Skripal poisoning. That would be significantly larger amount than what would be created in a laboratory for research purposes.

“According to expert estimations, 50 to 100 grams of a toxic agent such as the one Great Britain has been referring to, would be enough to poison not just two people but everyone in the surrounding neighborhood. However, the two people in question managed to survive and recover, the British authorities say”, Zakharova said.

On May 4, Russian Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov stressed that Russia would continue to work on UK denying Russia’s consular access to Skripals:

“We still do not accept Great Britain’s denial of consular access to Russian citizen Skripal,” he said. “We still don’t have any information about her whereabouts, while the necessary steps are being made through diplomatic channels in accordance with the Vienna Convention, and we still can see that Great Britain is violating the Vienna Convention. We will continue to work hard to that end.”

Dmitry Peskov emphasized that the remarks by Czech Pesident had been “a clear illustration” of the UK stance that “does not hold water”:

“Also, it is fresh confirmation of the absolute provocativeness and adventurism of the Skripal case in general. It is one more step towards the moment when ever more countries will start to feel they have been involved in an adventurist affair”.

What I do not understand is why the people of UK are still tolerating May and BoJo?

Why indeed when it reacted quite strongly against Islamic terrorism threat but not as much to nuclear war threat.

I live in that UK and although there are more voices that question the UG Government narrative, all too many of them are insouciant and more concerned with every day trivia.

There is another group who are loyal to their perception of the Flag Waving UK, who although they have their doubts, they cannot come to terms with the facts that challenge their dogma.

War has become a video game to the majority and those who lived through WW2 are dying out now. The ability for the majority to survive conditions that we see in the Middle East combat zones is almost zero.

The British did great with Brexit. I think it is time for you to start cracking the shell that is suffocating you, misplacing your values and culture.

Such culture that the UK has is continually being impoverished by the Zionists who pull the strings of those the subjects place in power.

I know. What I can not excuse at all is the jews instigating conflicts between Christians and Muslims or Christians versus Christians and we are ready to start killing each other for their sake and benefits. Those in governments, stimulating this sick game should face the people and the consequences of their treason.

This ‘divide and rule’ or ‘ divide and feel safe from your misdeeds’ has been an intrinsic part of Jewish survival.

However , when they go too far the anger of the non jews is always deadly for them.

We are fast approaching such a time now I suspect. When that happens , even their bought and paid for hasbara ‘friends’ will be baying for their blood :)

For the record after Tomahawk missile impotency shows where even if we uses official narrative where it have to uses 76 missiles to engage and destroy one target the manufacturer responsible get a stock raises instead.
The economists in the USA were convinced that despite their impotency their country would still have to buy another batches for replacements instead of searching for an alternative.

So the Russians used a Novichok-class nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union to poison them Skri pals…. did they already present any evidence they were poisoned with Novichok in the first place? Let’s start with that…show me the evidence mrs. Theresa & mr. Boris Fucktard….fucken Lying Bastards…

You can call me Al

Don’t be silly, of course not.

FlorianGeyer

Theresa May does not even have any dead bodies due to ‘poisoning’ by the most deadly verve agent known to man :)

There’s a D notice on the press that’s why you hear nothing. If I could dump May and her performing chimp I would.

Still talking about “novichok”?? There was no f*cking NOvichok (except in Porton Down labs): it was 100% fake, laughable false flag, utterly exposed and debunked…
“adventurism”, “provocations”?? for f*ck sake Russia stop with this diplo bs – May, BJ and others are nothing but lying, dirty, criminals.
