The incident in Amesbury could be initiated - like the "The Skripal case"
In the evening of July 8, 44-year-old British Don Sturges who according to the version of "Scotland Yard was poisoned by the nerve agent" Novichok", died in the hospital. The second victim, 45-year-old Charlie Rowley, remains in critical condition. London’s police opened a criminal investigation in the case of murder.
Earlier it was reported that the British were poisoned by a poisonous substance in the city of Amesbury and were hospitalized in the same hospital as the ex-colonel of the GRU, Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, poisoned in March of this year. London continues to accuse Moscow of involvement in the attempt, arguing that the "Novichok" was developed in the post-Soviet countries for military purposes. The Kremlin rejected the accusations. Moreover, the report of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons also states that "the destination of origin of the chemical could not be established".
Meanwhile, the British media, referring to the information received from the investigators, began to promote the next case of poisoning by "Novichok". Earlier it was reported that the poison was applied to the door handle of the house where Sergei Skripal lived, and as a result, the substance was in the vicinity of Salisbury. According to one of the versions, Sturges and Rowley were able to find in Amesbury a container or syringe with the remains of the substance that was then taken to Salisbury for the purpose of attempting the Skripals.
Russia's permanent representative to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons Alexander Shulgin does not rule out that the incident in Amesbury was another planned action by the British authorities. "Similar stories have recently appeared on the eve of important events. Now the final stage of the World Cup 2018 and the summit of Russia and the USA in Helsinki are coming. It's hard to get rid of the thought that all this was planned ... to inflate the international situation and damage the credibility of Russia, "the Permanent Representative said.
At the same time, he recalled that after the Salisbury incident, the UK authorities refused from bilateral consultations on the "Skripal case", which Moscow insisted on conducting. "Russia also offered assistance in investigation of the new incident in Amesbury, but London haughtily rejected the proposals of the Russian leadership again," Shulgin said.
However, the UK authorities’ attempt to use the incident in Amesbury for new "information attacks" on Russia risks completely undermining the image of the British leadership. Theresa May is still true to her political principles: without going into details, blame Russia on everything again. London still has not provided any convincing facts of Moscow's involvement in the poisoning of the Skripal, and now - of the Brits. However, it has long been the feature of Foggy Albion’s political behavior...
