MOSCOW, October 16. /TASS/. Bellingcat, a UK-based open source and social media investigation site, is linked to special services, which use it to “dump” information aimed to sway public opinion, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov stated in an interview with the Euronews channel.

Skripal and Khashoggi: A Tale of Two Disappearances By Finian Cunningham

17 October 2018 — Strategic Culture Foundation

Two disappearances, and two very different responses from Western governments, which illustrates their rank hypocrisy.

When former Russian spy Sergei Skripal went missing in England earlier this year, there was almost immediate punitive action by the British government and its NATO allies against Moscow. By contrast, Western governments are straining with restraint towards Saudi Arabia over the more shocking and provable case of murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

5 October 2018 — WSWS

The US Department of Justice is seeking the arrest of seven Russian nationals it claims worked for the GRU, the main Russian military intelligence agency.

British Intelligence Throws More Novi-Fog™ To Hide The Holes In Its Skripal File

27 September 2018 — Moon of Alabama

The UK/NATO propaganda group Bellingcat asserts that the man in the left picture is the same man as the person in the other two pictures.

The man in the middle and right picture is supposed to be Ruslan Boshirov, one of the two Russians who say (vid) that they went to visit Stonehenge via Salisbury on March 3 and March 4 2018, but could not reach it because the roads were closed after recent snowstorms. (Stonehenge was indeed closed during those two days.)

Skripal, the Russkies and Bellingcat

27 September 2018 — William Bowles

I smell a rat!

A quick comment about the two Russian alleged assassins, exposed, we are told by the ‘investigative’ Website, Bellingcat. Not mentioned by any of the major news media is the fact that Bellingcat is funded by the National Endowment for Democracy (sic), renowned for its interference in foreign elections, funding terrorists and overthrowing governments the US doesn’t approve of.

The Novichok Affair: The Incredible Case of Boshirov and Petrov’s Visas By Craig MURRAY

25 September 2018 — Craig Murray

The Metropolitan Police made one statement in the Skripal case which is plainly untrue; they claimed not to know on what kind of visa Boshirov and Petrov were travelling. As they knew the passports they used, and had footage of them coming through the airport, that is impossible. The Border Force could tell them in 30 seconds flat.

20 September 2018 — Strategic Culture Foundation

If we start from a premise which understands that Britain and its NATO allies are capable of mounting false flag events in Syria with chemical weapons, then it is entirely possible that British secret services carried out a similar propaganda stunt in England with regard to former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal.

UK: Fresh novichok allegations used to escalate anti-Russia offensive By Thomas Scripps

19 September 2018 — WSWS

While the facts remain obscured in the case of Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov and their alleged role in the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal, the political significance of the story is crystal clear. The novichok scandal is at the centre of the British government’s ratcheting up of diplomatic, economic and military tensions against Russia.

Skripals – The Mystery Deepens By Craig Murray

6 September 2018 — Global Research

The time that “Boshirov and Petrov” were allegedly in Salisbury carrying out the attack is all entirely within the period the Skripals were universally reported to have left their home with their mobile phones switched off.

A key hole in the British government’s account of the Salisbury poisonings has been plugged – the lack of any actual suspects. And it has been plugged in a way that appears broadly convincing – these two men do appear to have traveled to Salisbury at the right time to have been involved.
