As the Skripal case crumbles for the British Government and Intelligence units the two men alleged to be behind the Novichok poisoning case talk openly and nervously about how their visit to the UK has become a life changing moment. In the 25 minute interview with RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan they sometimes hesitatingly reveal their real purpose and visit.
On September 5th, British authorities offered images of two Russian citizens, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, allegedly involved in “the attempted murder of Mr Skripal and daughter Yulia”. Along with a quantity of CCTV footage and images taken in both London and Salisbury the British side described them as highly trained agents of Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU).
Many people have by now had a chance to watch the full interview, get a glimpse of the two alleged suspects and surely made some knee jerk decisions as to their guilt or innocence. If you have not click and watch full 25 minutes, it will certainly help you comprehend the most likely version of truth behind this enigma we share below. Eat yer heart out Ian Fleming!
In a world beset by trial by media the innocent rarely get a good shot at having their case heard objectively. Guilty until proven innocent has been a benchmark recently, in spite of protestations to the contrary, of the British judicial system , especially when it comes to anything Russian.
Therefore whatever your assessment may be on this case, en grand, stay with me while I lay out a scenario far better for holding water than the British Government’s pathetically shred bare script they try to persuade us all to believe.
The Government, MI6 and alphabet allies have been trying to make the Russia bête noir the very causus belli they need to execute whatever internationally illegal case they wish to prosecute. So they take the patsy, Sergei Skripal, a useless and spent force for the Russians and also for the British Secret Service except perhaps for using him as a go between with friend and Russia expert Christopher Steele who combined a spurious piece of literature for a US spy snare trap.
What was needed was for Skripal to be ‘disappeared’ and because his daughter Yulia inconveniently appeared on the scene, her also. With trusty Porton Down down the road from Salisbury, Sergei’s city of residence, they ‘dealt’ with him, shunted him off the scene via hospital having been infected by ‘Novichok’, a so called military grade killer chemical agent. The story was enacted perfectly, they got their people to set up a chemical attack incident whereby in a matter of hours they could announce it was “Russia Wot Did It“.
The media, obedient poodles of power, went into overdrive onside. the spin went out, the denials went in, the invective spread over everything Russian including a mass deportation and tit for tat diplomatic circus allies fell in line with. BBC pumped the national audience with the usual propaganda. Anyone who did not absolutely ‘buy’ the story was a traitor, Russian sympathiser, Putin adorist. You can get a pre-revelation version of the story here.
The fabric this tale was made out of was swiftly derided, pulled apart by those not easily duped and who saw more fantasy Bond than reality. In spite of that the Euro/Atlantic narrative was pumped out. They needed real people suspects that definitively spelled “Russia Dun It“.
That Skripal and daughter got better as the real toxic Novichok was never in the slate became a problem. They made more and more ridiculous storylines swiftly pulled to pieces. It was not biting as they wished. Then someone realised Salisbury was a truly sought after tourist magnet, at least Stonehenge and Old Sarum were. They then scanned for how many Russians went there. It was apparent there were many who came as tourists and visitors. Then the task was to find one or two Russians who flew in from Moscow. Several were identified, yet they needed someone who happened to be there on the day Skripal was set up.
Bingo! After alerting all CCTV from a few days before to the day of the ‘poisoning’ two travellers, now known as Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov were spotted arriving at Gatwick. From there the faces were then scanned into central London and each place they went were recorded and noted on the intensive CCTV surveillance existing in the UK. They now had their suspects. Although there are no publicly available images of the two being anywhere near the Skripal house, that was mere Intelligence admitting what the services and police confirmed and visual that was National Security protected.
Meanwhile two weekend-away tourists were about to be transformed into Public Enemy No1, due to their poor choice of place and time. That so many, be they British, French, European or Russian take away weekends to Malaga, New York, London or Paris was not the concern. These two were Russian and they could be pasted with all the ‘evidence‘ onto the photofit proof of criminality. So it was that as that became clear as the solution, another couple were roped in to resuscitate the weakening tale. The two were druggies, wasted and worth tempting with overdoses. One died and added an even more emotional tag to the floundering tale. Huge sorrow was crocodile-teared shed. Violins could even be heard.
The time was ripe to announce in September the news the two suspects had been identified. Russia was again hit hard with blame., vitriol and threats of more sanctions.
Trouble is the two lads returned to Russia months before had been easily traced by the excellent and efficient Russian Federation Services and willingly came to offer their real story, frightened to death, as they say, that the whole exposure they were now embroiled in and hiding from was literally a potential death threat hanging over them.
Denial from the British of anything other than their narrative was easy as they thought they had it in the bag. What they never had in the bag was the belief and trust of a public too used by now of watching their government lie and throw BS propaganda at them to aid their foul ends, be it war in the Middle East, distracting from their failures of Brexit or creating a good excuse for the neocon warmongers in DC to throw more bombs, sanctions and lunacy. at every country but their own.
This Highly Likely train of events is probably more believable than the official UK version but dear readers it is as always up to you to cast your decision and act on what you feel is more truthful.
One other thing – be very afraid of going on holiday to Russia as they will as sure as day ad night lock you up, even poison you to get revenge….. oh, perhaps not as the World Cup was such a success even with the diversions offered by a trumped up little island in the North Sea to mess with the huge success the Russians currently bask in.
Best beware of taking a break in Britain even if you are British! For if you watch RT, speak to any Johnny Foreigner or fancy Russian girls you are a Putin apologist, Russian spy or just a pain in the arse to their fairy tale promotion!
