TASS – September 9, 2018: The article highlights that western countries have staked on exhausting the current political regime in Russia, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vasily Nebenzya said on Sunday (September 9).
“The stake have been put on exhausting the regime,” he said in an interview with the Moscow, Kremlin, Putin program on the Rossiya-1 television channel.
According to the Russian diplomat, allegations of Russia’s involvement in the nerve gas attack on former foreign intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia are “yet another act in a long-running show.” He said the Western countries were obviously seeking “to picture Russia as a unprincipled member of international community” to justify “another spiral of sanctions.”

1. British intelligence hunting Russians to frame
Kremlin: Russia has no reasons to take action towards Petrov, Boshirov
TASS – September 14, 2018: The article highlights that Russia has no official reasons to take any action towards Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, whom London suspects of involvement in the Salisbury incident, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov told the media on Friday (September 14).
No action has been taken towards them, because there are no reasons for this. They have violated no laws in Russian territory and we have no official information as to whether they violated some laws elsewhere around the world. De jure and de facto,” Peskov said, adding that London had not addressed Moscow with a request for legal assistance in the Sergei and Yulia Skripal assassination attempt case.
Salisbury UK Plot Puts Innocent Men Into ‘Witch Trial Environment’ – Pundit
SPUTNIK NEWS – September 14, 2018: The article highlights that the two men suspected of targeting the Skripals with novichok have denied being agents or having anything to do with the poisoning. Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov told Russia Today they were only in Salisbury as tourists.
RT’s editor-in-chief said the two men reached out to her as they wanted to tell their story. The day before, Russian President Vladimir Putin said the two men had been identified and they were civilians and not criminals. Sputnik spoke to Adam Garrie, Director of Eurasia Future about the latest from Salisbury.
They are being protected by the Russian constitution, in that respect but clearly they’re not having a good time and their faces exposed on International and it’s clearly not what they wanted and not what they deserve.
Whereas the UK government, the current Prime Minister is hanging on by a thread; her own party is divided so is the opposition Labour for that matter. So one of the governments would have to change for there to be an improvement in relations and it looks like Britain will change first.
No Official Data Showing Skripal Case ‘Suspects’ Violated Law Anywhere – Kremlin
SPUTNIK NEWS – September 14, 2018: The article highlights the statement follows an earlier announcement from the Russian Foreign Ministry, made Wednesday (September 12), that London had lied when it said that the names of the “suspects” in the Skripal case, Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, could be fictitious.
Russian nationals Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, who are suspected by London in the Skripal case, did not violate any laws in Russia, there is no official record that they broke laws abroad, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Friday (September 14).
It’s not a question of whether this [interview] is to Russia’s advantage or not. The UK side named two Russian citizens and accused them of involvement in the incident. Two Russian citizens showed up, the [Russian] president at the forum (EEF) said they were identified,” Peskov told journalists answering the question whether it was useful for Russia to interview Petrov and Boshirov.
“It is absurd to accuse Russia of lying after statements made by two Russian citizens. They are ordinary citizens, they are not related to the Russian government,” Peskov told reporters.
RT – September 13, 2018: The article highlights that Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov told RT’s editor-in-chief they had nothing to do with the Skripals’ poisoning and are now scared to go outside, after the UK pointed to them as Russian intelligence agents on a kill mission.
1. British intelligence hunting Russians to frame
The two men reached out to RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan, as they wanted to tell their story. The first thing she asked them was to confirm their names, and they said that they were indeed Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, and that those were their real names.
She then asked them whether they worked for the GRU – Russian intelligence. They immediately denied it.
“You honestly look very tense,” Simonyan noted.
“And how would you look after all of that?” Petrov responded, before Boshirov said the British investigation “ruined their lives.”
“Well, we came there [to the UK] on March 2, then went to a railway station to see the timetable. We arrived in Salisbury on March 3 and tried to walk through the town, but we lasted for only half an hour because it was covered in snow,” Petrov said.
SPUTNIK NEWS – September 13, 2018: The article highlights that the Russian president said at a plenary session of the EEF in Vladivostok that Moscow had identified the two people suspected by London of poisoning ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury. Putin also said that the suspects are civilians and encouraged them to talk to the media.
Sputnik discussed the latest revelations made by Vladimir Putin with Joe Quinn, a political commentator.
Sputnik: What do you make of latest revelations made by Putin?
Joe Quinn: I don’t think that’s a big deal. It’s kind of to be expected that the Russian government would announce that these people are no one special. They haven’t gone as far as to say what they are doing there, but Putin has suggested they should speak up themselves and say why they were in the UK. But it’s just entirely plausible that they could just be two Russian civilians who were in Sailsbury on that day.
There probably were many different nationalities in Sailsbury on that day and over that weekend; so the fact that the British police and intelligent services were able to identify two Russians in Salisbury or in the area of Salisbury, in London, around that weekend proves nothing.
The British government and the British media continue to run with it because it’s part of an ongoing anti-Russian defamation campaign that’s part of a larger geopolitical war that the West in general is fighting against Russia.
It has to be seen in that context and dirty tricks and fabrications and false allegations are, obviously, part of that geopolitical war.
It’s designed to provoke an emotional response from the British public and to turn them against Russia. As I have already said, it is part of an ongoing long-term mostly information war against Russia by Western governments. And it’s also part of a broader geopolitical war in terms of the West attempting to hold on to its global hegemony and its control against the kind of rise of Russia and also China.
SPUTNIK NEWS – September 12, 2018: The article highlights that Russian President Vladimir Putin urges two persons suspected by London of being involved in the Skripal case to appear and talk with media.
Russian authorities have identified the two people suspected by London of poisoning Russian ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday (September 12, 2018).
“We know who they are, we have found them,” Putin told the plenary session of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) in Vladivostok.
The Russian president noted that the “suspects” were civilians. “I hope that they will show up and tell everything themselves. There is nothing particularly criminal there, I assure you,” he said. Putin also urged the two individuals to talk to media.
TASS – September 11, 2018: The article highlights that the embassy noted that a series of official statements was made lately to the effect that the UK should use its “massive retaliatory capabilities” to counter Russia’s “aggression”
Recent statements by UK officials, including on the country’s readiness to “retaliate” against Russia, create an impression that the British public is being prepared for aggressive measures against Russia, the Russian embassy in London said on Tuesday (September 11).
“Impression grows that the British public is being prepared for aggressive actions against Russia disguised as “defensive measures”, with eventual consequences impossible to predict,”
Russian diplomats said in a statement. “We urge the British authorities to abandon such hostile rhetoric, and be guided by international law and common sense.”
The embassy noted that a series of official statements was made lately to the effect that the UK should use its “massive retaliatory capabilities” to counter Russia’s “aggression”.
“Such statements are reckless, provocative and unfounded,” the statement reads.
The British government claims that the substance used in the Sergei Skripal attack had been a Novichok-class nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union, where London rushed to accuse Russia of being involved in the incident. Moscow rejected all of the United Kingdom’s accusations, saying that neither the Soviet Union nor Russia ever had any program aimed at developing such a substance.

Russian officials sent a letter to Google last month asking it to block Navalny’s videos because it said they were illegal under the country’s election laws, which bar political campaigning 24 hours before elections.
(BattleForWorld: Alexei Navalny is well supported by the West, because he has become useful in agitating Putin’s government of Russia with the aim of overthrowing it. Youtube being used to attempt overthrow of governments. Youtube retreated because they did not want to be sued by the Russian government for breaking election laws.)
Google confirmed it had pulled the videos. “We consider all justified appeals from state bodies. We also require advertisers to act in accordance with the local law and our advertising policies,” the company told the Guardian.
INDEPENDENT – September 13, 2018 (posted February 2, 2018 on Independent): The article highlights that Russia has warned its citizens to rethink travelling abroad because, it claims, the US is “hunting” for Russians to arrest around the world. (BattleForWorld: Apparently the British intelligence is also hunting Russians to frame.)
The travel warning, which was issued by Moscow’s foreign ministry, cautioned Russians face a serious threat of arrest by other countries at Washington’s request, after which they could be extradited to America.
“Despite our calls to improve cooperation between the relevant US and Russian authorities… US special services have effectively continued hunting for Russians around the world,” the statement said.
