British website Bellingcat is leaking misinformation of special services under the cover of investigations, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on her Facebook page on September 14.
The statement refered Bellingcat’s report claiming that the wesbsite found out using the Russian Federal Migration Service’s data that two suspects in the Skripal poisoning case, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, were linked to the Russian military intelligence service GRU.
Zakharova said that she has no doubt that Bellingcat is tied to special services.
“Moreover, it is most likely that this is a special agency, which is leaking misinformation under the cover of investigations,” she wrote adding that Bellingcat failed to provide evidence that Petrov and Boshirov were linked to the Salisbury poisoning case.
The diplomat also sgated that earlier this website almost monopolized the right to the truth in investigating the MH17 crash in eastern Ukraine in 2014.
“They provided such details, which could not have been collected by the entire scientific and research institute, not to speak about a private company,” Zakharova said.
