UK Media's Is Silent On Skripal Case As "The Russians Did It" Version Crumbles

The UK and its allies continue to push “The Russians did it” version in the Skripal poisoning story.

On March 4, former Russian military intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia suffered the effects of an alleged nerve agent in Salisbury, the UK. Claiming 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 the allegations as a provocation against Russia.

However, the UK seems to be totally silent over the Novichok’s origin and Russia’s alleged involvement in the Salisbury case last days.

As the “case does not exist in the media space” stated the sposekwoman of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova on April 29.

“British journalists lapsed into silence in a day as if, let’s speak openly, there had come an order for everyone to keep silent. They have all lapsed into silence. Therefore, there is no any Skripal case in the British media. It ceased to be interesting. Nobody is looking for anyone, nobody is carrying out any investigations, nobody is demanding from the British side either photos or videos of the affected persons, or as we have been told, the affected persons.”

On Rossiya 1 television channel, Zakharova said that Russia’s Foreign Ministry would not leave without attention the investigation into the poisoning of Skripals, as Moscow has information for the public.

Meanwhile, more and more journalists and experts question London’s version of the events.

Former British ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray expressed his distrust towards the UK government. Murray suggested that London had issued a D-notice to desist from reporting on Skripal’s handler. Murray marked that the chief correspondent of the channel News 4, Alex Thomsen also had mentioned a D-notice related to Mr. Skripals M16 handler on March 12.

A D-notice is defined as a British government instruction preventing particular information from being made public in order to protect the country.

Whether a D-order was given or not is the last thing necessary to clarify the incident. However, it can clarify the UK’s intention to hide the truth behind the baseless accusations.

    Cold war era propaganda fully works as the realm divided. It’s not going to works if they keep contradicting themselves.

      And errant dinosaur…

    The latest nonsense in the UK Daily Telegraph today is that a named Russian source has said that ‘unnamed ‘ sources told him that there was an enacted plan by Russia to gradually poison Bob Dudley , who was the BP boss and a long standing resident of Russia.

    The same playbook as the Scripal fantasy I suppose :)

    IF the Russian Government has wanted Dudley to leave, all they had to do is rescind his Visa :)

    Dudley is alive and well by the way.

    “A D-notice is defined as a British government instruction preventing particular information from being made public in order to protect the country”…TRANSLATION…A D- notice is defined by the British IMPERIALIST as a public WARNING to protect the LIES OF THE GOVERNMENT.

            your problem

          • ilme

            It is easy to say it is better under the yanks if you have never lived under them. But your borderless hatred against russians because you can’t let go of events that happened 30 years back is something you are already well known for. What you are doing here is nothing but pure self punishment.
            And as I’m tired of it fell free to reply but I won’t read it as I put you on my ignore list :)

            Ever had an American cop pull a gun on you? or how about a marine sticking his M16 in the back of your head?
            I have, and I was only on shore leave.

          Soros owns Telegram and his crap isn’t welcome in most western democracies either.

  • velociraptor

    and why should they? russins did, and nobody will focus on trample of mouse.

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      UK did it and their handiwork and prints are all over it and the attempts to manufacture consent are coming to naught .Kill the EU conference on Syria as it’s a major failure and disgrace like Geneva failed talks which both are only about destroying the Syrian Nation and it’s people.

  • Mike

    Again where are troll scum like velociraptor, jim crowland, smaug or mountains, free land or latin mass, when articles that don’t favor their evil views are posted.

    • velociraptor

      yiu should focus on article and not on persons. your comment (and the same under another article) was flagged as targeted harrasment!

    • Terra Cotta Woolpuller

      You Found Him!!

  • Sinbad2

    So it was Britain that ran the anti Trump campaign.
    Good thing Trump is too stupid to understand that.
    If Trump had an average IQ, he might just upset the close AngloAmerican Nazi movement.

  • Mikronos

    Do the Brits know about D-orders? Do the Papers say they’re being invoked? And isn’t that news?

    • Sinbad2

      No you can’t even mention there is a D notice in any publication in Britain.
