Selected Articles: Novichok Saga: The West Is Walking on the Razor’s Edge

In the absence of clear and sufficient evidence, PM Theresa May confidently averred that the nerve agent “Novichok” – used in an “attempted assassination” of Sergei Skripal  in Salisbury – was manufactured by Russia. 

Both Skripal and his daughter Yulia have been hospitalized. There have been virtually no detailed reports regarding their state of health which is described as “critical”.

“Operation Novichok”: Prime Minister May’s “Conspiracy Theory”

By Prof. Marcello Ferrada de Noli, March 18, 2018

Concomitantly, the distinction between “the attack clearly came from Russia” and “the nerve agent clearly came from Russia” is also relevant in refuting the UK allegations. Because, even if it would be established that the nerve agent was created time ago in the Soviet Union, that by no means is proof that the attack was Russia’s design, neither that its perpetrators came from Russia.

The Anti-Russia Tirade. Moscow’s Reaction Is Political Suicide? Is The West Fabricating a New Iron Curtain?

By Peter Koenig, March 18, 2018

Theresa May expels 23 Russian diplomats, who have to leave the UK within a week. Then came Boris Johnson, the Foreign Minister clown, also an abject liar. He said, no he yelled, at his fellow parliamentarians that it was “overwhelmingly likely, that Putin personally ordered the spy attack.”

It is highly unlikely that the nerve agent, which was used to poison former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury on March 4, arrived in the UK from Russia in Yulia Skripal’s suitcase, experts believe. Yulia Skripal arrived from Russia on March 3, and she and her father lost consciousness the following day.

Of a Type Developed by Liars: The Evolving “Novichok” Nerve Agent Saga

By True Publica, March 16, 2018

It is home to two UK Government facilities: a site of the Ministry of Defence’s Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) – known for over 100 years as one of the UK’s most secretive and controversial military research facilities, occupying 7,000 acres.

WMD Lies Strike Again: The Skripal Incident

By Tony Cartalucci, March 16, 2018

The UK’s presumption that “only Russia” could have produced the agents when the creator of Novichok lives in the United States – and British labs clearly have access to the poison – is at face value contradictory and dishonest.
