Putin rejects allegations that Russia poisoned double spy as nonsense

After a landslide victory of 76.6% of the vote, for another six-year term, President Vladimir Putin rejected as “nonsense” claims that Moscow had poisoned former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter. In his first detailed response to the British government’s accusation, President Putin said, he first heard about it was from the media, and had it been a military-grade nerve agent, people would have died on the spot. He went on to stress that Russia does not have nerve agents. “We destroyed all our chemical weapons under international supervision, unlike some of our partners who promised to do it but did not keep their promises.”

    Putin would wouldn’t he…just like a thug who denies murder. In this thug’s case, he is so arrogant that he puts the British public at risk as well.

    Someone should post pictures showing Putin sitting with Khamenei and Hitler sitting with Haj Amin Al-Husseini.

    V. Putin is rapidly evolving into neo-Communist, imperial ambitions, akin to Stalin’s own !
    Only the titles have changed: K.G.B. is now F.S.B., Russian flag is tri-color instead of red, Communist party is the second largest in the Duma (parliament), assassinations of “undesirables” are again state-sponsored,
    military are increasingly aggressive and influential…
