The report of the experts on chemical weapons confirms Britain's findings on poisoning in Salisbury - US State Department

on Thu Apr 19, 2018 11:02 am
The report of the experts on chemical weapons confirms Britain's findings on poisoning in Salisbury - US State Department

The report of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) confirms the findings of the United Kingdom on the substance that was poisoned by escort reconnaissance officer Sergey Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury.

This was stated by the official US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert.

"An independent report of the OPCW, which was distributed last week, confirms the results of the British laboratory's analysis of the substance used in Salisbury," noted Nauert.

She added that the United States agrees with Britain's assessment that Russia is responsible for the use of chemical weapons in the territory of Britain.

"Only the Russian government has motives, means and experience for such an attack," the diplomat said.

Indeed, international experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons have confirmed the findings of Britain that the former intelligence officer of Russia Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with neuro-paralytic substance.

The report of the Organization states that the poisonous substance was "particularly clean". At the same time, the experts did not confirm that it was just "Novice" - as previously stated by the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Teresa May.

A 66-year-old citizen of Russia Sergey Skrypal was hit by a hospital with severe poisoning on March 4. With him was his daughter. British intelligence considers Russia involved in the poisoning of the Violinist .

The British police said that the Violinist was poisoned with a substance of neuro-paralytic action . The British investigation believes that the poisoning of the former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal would hardly have been carried out without the approval of the Kremlin.

British Prime Minister Teresa May announced that Russia is likely to be involved in the poisoning of the Violinist, and the crime was committed with the help of the paramilitary paralysis of the "Novice" class developed in the Russian Federation.

Sergei Skripal, Colonel of Military Intelligence of Russia on retirement in 2006, was sentenced to 13 years in prison for espionage in favor of Britain. He was found guilty of giving testimony to Russian agents working under cover of the EU, the Secret Intelligence of Britain.

The former intelligence officer was fired in an exchange between the United States and Russia in 2010. He was pardoned by then Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. Then Russia, besides Violinist, sent Igor Sutyagin, Alexander Zaporizhzhya and Gennady Vasilenko to the United States. At the same time, 10 people were charged with espionage in favor of RF citizens, among them Anna Chapman. Soon, Violin became a political refuge in the UK.

Trump on punishment for Russia's support of Syria's chemical attack: "We'll do sanctions as soon as they very much deserve it"

on Thu Apr 19, 2018 11:04 am
Trump on punishment for Russia's support of Syria's chemical attack: "We'll do sanctions as soon as they very much deserve it"



U.S. President Donald on Wednesday said his administration would levy additional sanctions on Russia “as soon as they very much deserve it.”

As reported by Censor.NET, three senior administration officials and a source familiar with the discussions told CNN that Trump personally made the decision to abandon plans to impose more sanctions on Russia for supporting Syria's chemical weapons attack on civilians.

"We'll do sanctions as soon as they very much deserve it," Trump said a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Florida. "There's been nobody tougher on Russia than President Donald Trump."

"With the media, no matter what I did, it's never tough enough, because that's the narrative," Trump said. "But Russia will tell you there's been nobody tougher than Donald Trump."

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova confirmed to CNN that the Trump administration notified the Russian Embassy in Washington that additional sanctions were not, in fact, coming. The news was first published in The Washington Post.

Trump's reversal once again raises questions about his affinity for Russia despite Moscow's meddling in the 2016 US election, its alleged use of chemical weapons on foreign soil to target a former spy and its backing for the Syrian regime as it conducts possible war crimes against its own people.

France, the United States and United Kingdom launched joint military action late on April 14, firing 105 missiles at the three sites in Syria. Shortly after the airstrikes began, President Donald Trump said all three sites were "associated" with the Syria's chemical weapon program.

On April 11, 2018, U.S. President Donald Trump said that Syria's President Bashar al-Assad would still be held accountable for the recent chemical weapons attack in Douma regardless of Russia's threats to bring down any missiles fired at Syria and target launch sites.

Syrian activist groups on Saturday said toxic gas inside barrel bombs dropped from helicopters over a rebel-held city in Syria killed dozens of civilians and wounded scores more. Syrian state news said an "official source" denied the allegations.

In the early hours of Monday morning, Syria State TV reported that "several missiles" had been fired at the T4 air base in Homs, in the country's west, adding that it was "likely an attack by the U.S." The Pentagon issued a statement Sunday denying it was conducting air strikes in the region.

On April 9, Russian U.N. Ambassador Vasily Nebenzia said that Moscow had warned the United States of "grave repercussions" if it carries out an attack against Syrian government forces over reports of a deadly chemical weapons attack.

"There was no chemical weapons attack," Nebenzia told the U.N. Security Council.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the council that Washington "will respond" to the attack on a rebel-held town in Syria regardless of whether the United Nations Security Council acts or not.

Putin's military bases can legitimately appear on the Donbass: an alarming forecast was given in Ukraine


The incomplete implementation of the Minsk treaties may lead to the lawful appearance of Russian military bases in Ukraine and the consolidation of the status of the DPR and LNR.

Director of military programs at the Razumkov Center Mykola Sungurovsky told about this "Apostrophe".

"After ceasing fire, they set up a truce and immediately held elections, which would prevent this newly elected government from appealing to Russia to conclude a military alliance, as happened in Abkhazia and Ossetia, and the emergence of Russian bases in that territory is a definitive freezing the conflict, and not its completion, and then you can speak as many as you like, why, and why you did not do other steps. "The troops are already there - on a legitimate basis, and everything," the expert said.

According to him, it is time to declare the Minsk agreements disrupted and recognize Russia as the culprit for this disruption.

"They say: where is the new format? And the new format is the mandate of the peacekeeping mission. That's where all these steps are defined - from and to," Sungurovsky summed up.

Russia has suspended air travel from the US because of visa problems

on Thu Apr 19, 2018 9:13 pm
Russia has suspended air travel from the US because of visa problems

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia has not ruled out the cessation of air traffic from the US because of the difficulty of obtaining US visas.

This is stated in the statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.

"The situation with the issuance of American visas in Russia is extremely depressing. The official deadline for visa interview... has recently been extended to 250 days, ie 8 months. In other words, to apply for visas becomes meaningless,"- said in the Russian foreign office.

Russia accused Washington of "deliberate deliberate visa blockade as an additional lever of pressure."

"We can not even exclude that our countries will remain without aviation communication. Aeroflot, the only one that operates regular flights between Russia and the United States, may be forced to stop them, because crews are experiencing growing difficulties in obtaining American visas, "the Foreign Ministry said.

In August 2017, the US Embassy in Russia suspended the issuance of nonimmigrant visas in Russian regions. It should be noted that visas were issued to Russians, but only at the embassy in Moscow.

Such a decision by the United States was due to the limitation of the number of US diplomatic staff in Russia at the request of the Kremlin.

On July 30, Russian President Vladimir Putin said 755 American diplomats should leave the Russian Federation.

Later in the United States, they said they were preparing a response to the sending of US diplomats from the Russian Federation.

Donald Trump thanked Putin for sending American diplomats from Russia, as it would save a lot of money.

In December 2017, the US said that the US consulates in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok will resume issuing visas to Russians.

The Russian Foreign Ministry accused Britain of killing "the state order" of Emperor Paul I and Rasputin

on Thu Apr 19, 2018 9:26 pm
The Russian Foreign Ministry accused Britain of killing "the state order" of Emperor Paul I and Rasputin



A spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Zakharova, accused British secret services of involvement in the murder of Gregory Rasputin, a Tobolsk peasant who had a vision of the seer, and entered a close circle of the last Russian tsar Nicholas II on April 19.

This is reported by Censor.NET with reference to the  Present Time.

Zakharova said that such conclusions can be made after reading the book of the former Scotland Yard agent Richard Callen, which provides archival documents of British intelligence officers. Also, according to Zakharova, London was involved in the death of Russian emperor Paul I and Congolese politician Patrice Lumumbi. All these killings the representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs called "state orders".

In addition to all the above, Zakharov called the UK "world record holder for genocide", because, according to her estimates:

The British were killed by up to 95% of Aboriginal Australians during colonization, genocide Zulus in the Cape colony.

in 1954-1961, they carried out a "genocide of the Kikuya people in Kenya".

Total official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced 17 pages of "archival data" on crimes of British authorities.

According to her statements, Zakharova's statements were made in response to the British authorities' accusations that the Kremlin was involved in the poisoning of the former GRU agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the British city of Salisbury. These allegations are officially denied by Russia.

Recall that an investigation into an assassination attempt by Sergei Skryptal and his daughter, Julia, continues. Sergey Skryple, former Colonel of the GRU stockpile, who lived in the United Kingdom and was convicted in 2006 for espionage in favor of British intelligence services, was  injured as a result of poisoning with an unknown substance at the Salisbury shopping mall.

It should also be noted that on March 12, Prime Minister Teresa May announced that  the British government had come to the conclusion that the responsibility for poisoning in Salisbury, a former GRG employee Sergey Skrypala and his daughter, most likely, lies in Russia. She also reported that the victims were poisoned by the nerve-paralytic substance "Novachok", which was developed in the Russian Federation.

On Wednesday, March 14, May  announced the decision of  London to send 23 Russian diplomats who work for intelligence: "This will be the largest single expulsion in more than 30 years. This (this measure) reflects the fact that the Russian state is not the first time acting against our country."

On March 20, 23 employees of the Russian Embassy in London, as well as their families  left Great Britain.

At the EU summit, which ended March 23, the EU countries supported the United Kingdom. Some countries, including Poland, are considering the expulsion of Russian diplomats.

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said that 13 Russian diplomats are signing solidarity with their British partners and transatlantic allies and in coordination with the European Union.

The deportation of Russian diplomats was  announced by the United States , Canada and  14 European states,  including Germany, France, Italy, Czech Republic and others. In the statements of Washington and Ottawa, the expatriate diplomats who were expelled were accused of having links with Russian intelligence and "abusing diplomatic powers." In addition, the United States announced the closure of the Russian Consulate General in Seattle.

As of March 28, after the poisoning of former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia in Great Britain, 28 countries and NATO have  expelled 152 Russian diplomats suspected of working on Russian intelligence.
