The "Skripals case" takes a logical conclusion
The anti-Russian campaign in Europe is gradually coming to the logical end after two months from the poisoning of the former GRU officer Sergey Skripal and his daughter Julia in the English Salisbury. Britain's "crusade" against Russia was another fiasco for British Prime Minister Theresa May.
The theme of the Skripals was bored not only because of the frequency of its mention in the world media, but also the lack of clarity and serious evidence of Russia's guilt in the Salisbury incident. The London's European allies, who have not received an adequate response to queries on the "Skripals case", have replaced the unconditional support for the United Kingdom's position on skepticism and the desire to restore relations with Russia.
In addition, in the global information space there are more weighty reasons for coverage than countering the mythical "Russian threat". Among them - the resumption of hostilities in Syria, the normalization of relations between the two Koreas, as well as the Iranian nuclear deal that US President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are trying to bury.
Against this background, London's claims to Moscow are losing their relevance. Instead of conducting a thorough investigation of the incident and providing convincing evidence to the whole world, the British government decided to retreat into a defensive posture. The result of this approach was the secrecy of all available data on the "Skripals case" and the concealment from the journalists and Russian diplomatic representatives of the whereabouts of Sergey and Yulia Skripal.
Speech by Czech President Miloš Zeman, the reports of Porton Down and the OPCW deprive London of the information advantage that he used as a prosecution. However, it should be noted that London does not care how the future of the Skripals will develop. Provocation failed, now it will have to deal with internal affairs.
