UK’s foreign secretary: Putin ordered nerve agent attack on ex-spy

Russian President Vladimir Putin is “overwhelmingly likely” to have ordered the nerve agent attack on an ex-spy and his daughter, British foreign secretary Boris Johnson has said. Russia has denied involvement and called John’s accusations against Putin “shocking and unbelievable.” Both victims, Sergey and Yulia Skripal remain critically ill in hospital 12 days after the attack. Russia’s investigative committee said it had opened a criminal case investigation into the “attempted murder” of Ms Skripal and the murder of Nikolai Glushkov, a Russian exile who was found dead in his home in London on Monday.

    The 2018 Russian presidential election will take place on 18 March.
    One candidate has consistently scored +70% in polls.
    He likes to tickle his enemies to their nerves.
    What’s wrong with tickling?
    Bleah, we all know English humor jokes are so bleak!

    Obvious nonsense. No smart leader of a large country, Putin is smart obviously, would take risk of sending nervous gas by putting it into a bag the unknowing woman, the daughter across the borders in a plane to kill such an insignificant fish as this useless double agent. It is so crazy and telling about the situation in England and Eurabia in general. Just try to think rationally what nonsense all this is. Most probably he had been involved in gas smuggling and killed by the partners or competitors. I remember how Bush dad and France were sending nervous gases to Sadam Hussein Obama to poison Iranians in Tehran. That was real. Now we have the crazy Iran full of hatred and dangerous satan. Should be DESTROYED!

      Putin will toast all the bagels at once, and fumigate, when the history books are rewritten they will tell the children how these weapons were propagated by the same people who they eventually came to be used on.

    If Putin didn’t order this then he’s got some of his “loyal” oligarchs to check out. Putin is thuggish and brazen enough now to apply his over inflated ego so as to send a message to his enemies without thought for civilians in the vicinity. Worst case is actually that he has lost control of his nerve agent stockpile and some amateur Russian mafia paid for by his “friends” have acted like him (thugs). Either way, the Russians are out of control and need to be put in their place properly and economically squeezed further until they get the message.

      So, it is |Pu|TiN. Then the message is that this agent is not illegal and that they will use the gas. Yes?

      What evidence do you have that the nerve agent was produced in Russia?

    So … Sorry for not good English …. I live in Russia. I think that – in history all time a great people kill people. Read about Alexander Makedonskiy – he kill all man in his family and more than 10 his friends. Israeli minister Golda Meir – kill Arab terrorists in France and other country. And Israel say – we will kill all terrorists – in all places in a World. Why we – as Russia can’t do same things? We are a great country – we on way – only 20 years from death of Soviet Union. But in this 20 years – we make more than all Europe made in 300 years. Yes fact using nerve agent – is terrible because a many ordinary people may have a risk of health. A good shoot wil be better and cleaner.

      It is the civilians Putin put at great risk that people in the UK would take serious exception to (not just in the UK) – they could be my, your or anyone’s friend, family or children. This was a heinous and arrogant attack by Putin or his thugs or associate thugs on the people of the UK not just a clean kill of a spy who no one in the general population had heard of. I make a distinction between Putin and his killers and normal Russian citizens who are like any other civilian population going about their business.

    Looks like traditional, fair, and legendary English Justice system is permanently dead and I’m truely sorry for that.
    Clowns like Mr. Johnson are establishing “Modern English Justice” that shortly can be describe as follows: “HYPOTHETICALLY POSSIBLE = OVERWHELMINGLY LIKELY = PROVEN GUILTY”.
