The Alternative Skripal Narrative

by Michael Antony for The Saker Blog The recent titbit fed to us by Bellingcat (reputedly close to MI6) that a third Russian agent was booked on the flight from Heathrow to Moscow on the night of 4th March 2018 — the flight taken by the two alleged GRU officers filmed in Salisbury — but didn’t show up for it, has pointed to a possible solution to the baffling Skripal

Skripal vs Khashoggi: Some countries are more equal than others

by John Freeman for The Saker Blog International politics and hypocrisy have always gone together like sewers and stink, but the contrast between the recent media and government reactions to the Skripal poisoning, on the one hand, and the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi, on the other, reflects a new high water mark for duplicity and deceit by the New World Order and its satraps. The blizzard of newsfeed and groupthink

How the Brits soiled their pants in the Skripals case by Ruslan Ostashko

Translated and subtitled by Scott Humor It seems that the main function of British diplomacy is to entertain the Russians, while trying to hang all the dogs in the “Skripals case” on the GRU.  The last attempt caused an explosion of violent and offensive mockery in social media. Every time we think that London has reached the bottom in its “Skripals case,” new abyss opens below. Have you seen a

Skripal 2.0 – another couple found poisoned by “Novichok” (UPDATED 2x!)

RT reports: UK police say couple in Wiltshire contaminated with same substance as Skripals   British authorities are saying that the couple that is currently in critical condition in Salisbury hospital was exposed to the same substance as Sergei Skripal and his daughter in March. UK counter-terrorism chief Neil Basu said that the substance was ‘Novichok,’ the same one that the UK claims the Skripals were poisoned with. He said

The Skripals will most likely never be allowed to talk

[This column was written for the Unz Review] There have been major developments this week, all of them bad, including Putin re-nominating Medvedev as his Prime Minister, and Bibi Netanyahu invited to Moscow to the Victory Day Parade in spite of him bombing Syria, a Russian ally, just on the eve of his visit. Once in Moscow, Netanyahu compared Iran to, what else, Nazi Germany. How original and profound indeed!

Meditations on Skripal

by Jimmie Moglia for the Saker blog Parisians, and those who roam the streets of Paris to take upon themselves the Frenchness of things, will no doubt know or remember the elegant, historic and fashionable Place Vendome. There is a history in all men’s lives and in what they built. In the instance, however, I only refer to the Duke of Vendome, (1654-1712), in whose honor the square is named.

The British Spy Skripal hoax

by Scott Humor In regards to the British government-staged hoax around the persona of retired British spy Sergey Skripal: If TV police dramas told us anything it’s the principle of Corpus delicti, or “no body, no crime.” It’s the principle that a crime must be proved to have occurred before a person can be convicted of committing that crime. Since February, the British government has been staging a bizarre theater

Trump, May, Merkel and Macron issue joint statement blaming Russia for Sergei Skripal poisoning

Business Insider reports: full statement (emphasis added) We, the leaders of France, Germany, the United States and the United Kingdom, abhor the attack that took place against Sergei and Yulia Skripal in Salisbury, UK, on 4 March 2018. A British police officer who was also exposed in the attack remains seriously ill, and the lives of many innocent British citizens have been threatened. We express our sympathies to them all,

Possible motives for a provocation against Russia

A lot of commentators have pointed out that the West really does not want a full scale war with Russia because this would, at best, be a suicidal proposition.  True. But there are some specific interests in the West which very much want to raise tensions as high as possible.  Today I will list just a few: (partial list) The US energy sector The energy sector is deeply concerned about

Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s news conference to sum up the high-level meetings week at the 76th session of the UN General Assembly, New York, September 25, 2021

https://www.mid.ru/en/foreign_policy/news/-/asset_publisher/cKNonkJE02Bw/content/id/4867149 Question: Which opportunities and risk factors does the new Taliban’s Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan present? Does Russia fear that the presence of Taliban could somehow feed Islamic extremism in the region? If so, what can be done? Sergey Lavrov: Of course, Afghanistan is now on everyone’s mind. We believe, and we did believe from the outset, that what has happened there is a reality. Unfortunately, the hasty pull-out, let’s

SITREP: political prisoners in the UK

Dear friends, today I am posting an email (with permission) describing the situation of another political prisoner in the UK, not Assange and not the, apparently held incommunicado, Skripal father and daughter.  I thought that it was important to post it here Andrei ——- Dear Saker, You probably don’t know that Julian Assange is not the only political prisoner in the UK. Craig Murray was from 1984 to 2004 was

A few images as metaphors for our world :-)

Check out these two images: The first is a perfect metaphor for the West civilization:  Everything in that picture is perfect, including the uniquely British BoJo and his oh so sincere homopride. The second images shows a true western triumph.  On the basis of totally unsubstantiated claims by one defector who was under criminal prosecution in Russia, the collective West, via WADA and the IOC, has banned Russia from being

Will the Russians sink a British ship the next time around?

[This analysis was written for the Unz Review] To begin, let’s recap what just happened in the Crimean waters. First, the HMS Defender deliberately entered the Russian waters under the pretext that the Brits don’t recognize what they call the “annexation” of Crimea. The Brits deny it, but after seeing 4 bombs explode ahead of the HMS Defender, they altered their course as the Russians demanded. Next, before looking into

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation We have available video in Russian and transcript in English. Transcript: Dmitry Kiselev: Our relations with the United States are really “hell”. Personally, I don’t recall them being at such a low ebb ever before.
