There is no overstating my gratitude to Eugenia who did an “emergency translation” of this crucial statement on Sunday instead of enjoying a much deserved, and much needed, day of rest. Dedicated people like Eugenia is what make this blog possible and we all owe her an immense dept of gratitude. Thanks to this translation, you all get to hear what Maria Zakharova had to say in response to the British campaign of lies and deception. Thanks Eugenia!
Great Thanks to Eugenia!
Always love to hear Maria Z. prosecute the enemies of Truth.
The UK is an abomination.
This calumny against Russia may bring some Karma back on the UK.
Most of all, it has strengthened the national solidarity of the Russian people. Nearly 10% more voters turned out in the election than was projected.
And Putin has won his largest support.
We can hope that some great misery befalls the rot at the top of the UK government.
Thank you very much for the subtitles, which make important information available to us who’s education unfortunately did not include learning to speak Russian. Thanks!!!!!
Another layer of stinking rotting onion is exposed!
Maria is seriously pissed, heaping (well deserved) scorn and derision on the Brits. Angry, and perhaps a bit worried about the bridge that has been crossed.
if it wasn’t so serious – it would be hysterical
What she discusses at minute 7 and on is interesting and actually a proof it’s all bullshit:
The British government refuses to share information with the Russian one in spite of (both being parties of the Chemical Weapons Conventions) the chemical was coming from Moscow.
Think about it: assume it is true it was a military grade chemical weapon and assume it is true it came from Moscow, in the suitcase of Yulia Skripal, as the British authorities claim. They are sure it came from some official Russian person (almost like “Putin himself put it in the suitcase” *). But you can’t be 100% sure, at most 99% sure.
This implies, if above assumptions are correct (I doubt they are) there is a 1% possibility that there is somebody, somewhere (in Moscow several few days ago, who knows where today) who has, very likely, more of this shit. He/she is definitely not a nice person, could be from ISSI or any terrorist organization, and he has maybe a lot of military grade nerve agent and the British authorities refuse to collaborate with Russian authorities to help track that guy/gal !
The rest of the shit could be in another suitcase in the next British Airways flight from Moscow to Heathrow and there could be hundreds of dead British citizen (and Russian spies) in this airport or in a Mall in London tomorrow afternoon.
Ergo, its definitely complete bullshit or the British authorities are out of their mind. Or both.
Have a nice day (and avoid Heathrow for a few days :)
*) “… and he dropped his passport in the suitcase”
this is a great conversation between two elegant intelligent beautiful Russian women – who are at the top of their carreers at the top of the world – what they think of the idiots and the liars and the seriousness of this world global situation – where clowns like Tony Blair and Boris the gorilla are the heads of state – not to mention that flabby lipped Theresa May –
I’m so ashamed to be on this side of the planet – except that I love this planet – and we have to get rid of this infestation of morons and scum…that’s why we’re all here now.
I am ashamed as well for being where I am… Well said, Ann.
Thanks, all, for your comments, and yes, many toasts to Eugenia, and to the mesmerizing Maria Z. I just watched the YouTube feature “Russian Pundits : The UK only understands strength, it is time for Putin to hit back”. I was uneasy before , now I admit I am officially worried about where all of this may lead. People are understandably hopping mad, unfortunately, clear thinking does not happen as a result of that. There is Something totally surreal, perhaps even Staged (yes, I am using that S word) about this incident, with slowly moving figures in their hazmat suits performing a Ballet of Doom, and PM May looking particularly demonically possesed in her address to the chamber. Again, I am curious as to how many Brits on the street really want the UK to go to war with Russia??? Is this meant to be a demonstration of absolute unreasonableness and insanity at the highest levels, something so crazy and outrageous that it simply cannot be hidden any longer? Is this a distraction from the years of the awful pedophile scandals that have plagued England? I’m not sure if the “UK only understands strength” — I believe what the higher ups fear even more is brilliant light cast upon their many crimes, and Russia is in a position to illuminate enough of this that the people may actually “take it to the streets” and shut the country down if they fully realized how they have been betrayed by their own “leaders”. The revelation that many are about to receive is that they have nothing left to lose. I’m looking for a confirm on this story from Before Its News: “Cruise Missile strike groups in Eastern Mediterranean, Persian Gulf, and Red Sea for possible strike at Syria”. Friends, Pray mightily for the total defeat of the evil war makers. I want them to strangle on their terrible war plans.
It is not UK that wants to go to war, UK is nato and an attack against one is an attack against all, ergo whatever UK does, nato will follow, this by treaty. Sound familiar? Late summer 1914 come to mind?
Nato wants war and this whole farce about chem weapons is just that, a farce. Watch the vid footage behind the two ladies as they speak. Supposedly this chemical is instantly fatal with but a microdot of on the skin, yet you have ‘expurts’ wandering around with no chem/bio suits beyond those actually handling the bench area. Everything else is treated with no precautions, ergo the whole ordeal is nothing but a tragicomic farce. At least now you know where the infamous ‘white helmets’ got their training and instructions.
One can parse the current ‘crisis’ any way you want, this is a build up to War with Russia. Russia has stymied US in Syria, Novorossiya, Sevastopol and Krimea and has, while not laughed at them, taken the sanctions, each of which is an act of War, and used the sanctions to her advantage. In essence, everything CehSha has done in the last 4 years has been shoved right back up her nostrils and the CehSha regime is raging furious at these turns of events. Toss in ongoing and massive turmoil in the CehSha regime and what is to all intents and purposes a year long attempt at a coup d’etat against the regime and you have the current and extremely volatile situation.
I sincerely hope this mess does not come to war and I have a nagging suspicion that President Putin did not announce every new/improved weapon Mother now has in her arsenal but one simple fact should point the way to the truth of the matter. With an ongoing and very threatening and contrived crisis that could lead to everyone’s nightmare, War with Russia, the President of Russia has cut the defense budget both last year and this year. Contemplate that fact for a while.

NATO has yet to be tested; Turkey is already off the reservation. If/when it comes to war, I don’t believe Germany will fight against Russia (leaving aside the issue of fat Germans who can’t go out after dark); France will be France and fold quickly; the Eastern side of Europe – well its a question who’s side they are on anyway, but I’m sure they recall WW2. The UK will make noise, but realistically they are finished within 30 mins – 2 big whales of aircraft carriers and no planes FFS.
NATO is only reading from the US script. When it comes to the crunch NATO will just be the US; and then we will see how much the US will accept war on their territory – my determination is, not much.
And we haven’t even factored China into the mix.
And I agree – that Putin was prepared to talk about new weapons means there is stuff he isn’t talking about.
Re cutting the defense budget – well, those are just official figures. There is no doubt that Russia is upping its game massively; and I do believe the US spend on defense is a negative, not a positive.
I am convinced that Russia even while talking to USofA about weapons would not divulge all the secrets outside what’s been said. Judging some talk coming from the US there are two streams: one they believe the development of those weapons is real, and the official BS for the benefit of the public audience. The problem is that the “bottom feeders” are convinced of their invincibility therefore there will be no talks. Also, they belive that all the new weapons are some time away from high volume manufacturing, so they wand to deal Russia death blow asap. Also, regarding sanctions, as Aus says: the “bottom feeders” were convinced based on the experience with USSR, that Russia will follow the same path and collapse. But, China is now the most powerful economy in the world, and US can not control the technology flow from China or other Asiatic manufacturing centers to Russia. People believe that US is a paper tiger, and China is the real thing. In the final days of the USSR China was on the US side. Now, just a small example: Turkey. Erdogan, who can not be trusted, has said that he will only buy weapons (at least the AA) from Russia. US tried to blackmail him just like the others, but he said “no sunctions will stop him from dealing with Russia”. There you have it. He knows that Russia is a real power today and he wants to be on Russia’s side. He also knows that no amount of “insurgents” will prevent China’s new “silk road” from getting to Turkey.
It always amazes me how centuries of British insults and smears toward their long-time enemies, the French, are almost universally accepted as true.
I while back, being of German heritage, I went and looked up when slavery (aka serfdom) was abolished in Germany. The answer was in 1809, after Napoleon took over the area and introduced the Napoleonic Code. This made it illegal for one human being to own another human being.
And yet, the influence from the nasty Brits is that Napoleon was some sort of vicious dictator. And of course, the nasty Brits were still operating their slave ships at that time when Napoleon was setting people free.
One has to be very careful not to let the nasty, racist, hateful Brits dominate your thinking even though much of what we think we know of the world comes from lying British historians.
You are not the first commentator who has stated that Putin has not showed all of the Russian military high tech. Others have stated the same thing. I think that NATO knows this, and is wondering what else Russia possesses.
As for NATO, I hope it’s not foolish enough to start a war with Russia. I don’t think the Pentagon can rely too much on it’s European allies. From the psychological point of view, Europe has not recovered from the previous two world wars. There is no mood in Europe for World War Three. I don’t think Washington understands this.
Oh it’s time – you can’t keep the secret that you sponsoured ISIS and keep a ‘liberal’ democratic political system intact.. the people should snap to some degree, so these rogue states have no choice really but to go to the endgame. Hopefully they don’t use WMD’s, there just is no guarantee with the UK-US axis anymore!
There is nothing ‘liberal’ about the US political system.
Dr., Martin Luther King was a liberal (also he was a Republican). If you listen to Dr. King talk, it sounds nothing like the current US politicians.
The modern US politicians support wall street bankers, and put corporations over people, they are very pro-war and have been at war for the last 17 years and dream that these wars will carry on forever. There is nothing ‘liberal’ about that. They are if anything the opposite of liberal.
Just watch the movie “In the Loop” to better understand how things work; it’s here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yMZek8bRyM and discusses similar fabrications. Communication and speed is everything, lies don’t matter….
I regularly watch the movie Wag the Dog (staring DeNiro and Hoffman) to remind me of how easy it is to fool people using tv and video.
Maria Z is a very impressive spokesperson. I’m British and have been watching the antics of our government and the accusations they have made against Russia and Putin specifically with increased alarm. I can assure you the British people want no part in a war with Russia. You should know that our military and police have been cut to the bone financially, we have no civil defence whatsoever. We are in no shape to fight a war. Of course the Russian government knows all this but they are right to be sceptical about what dirty tricks our out of control government can get involved in.
My view is that this is all about manipulating British public opinion to support increased military expenditure at the expense of our people’s health services and welfare support and to denigrate Corbyn our non interventionist leader of the opposition.
It’s pretty obvious what happened. The NGO backed political candidates in Russia had no chance what so ever in taking over from Putin, so the West stages a foolish false flag attack in England on the eve of the Russian presidential elections, all in order to vilify Putin. Incredible that something so low could be initiated, and even more incredible that it was expected from mature, educated people to believe this propaganda nonsense.
Both Germany and France gave very unconvincing support to the British Government. However, this false flag attack will make it’s contribution in driving both Germany and France into the Russian camp, first Germany, then France. Both will come to the conclusion that the Anglo-Zionists will use any method available to have things their way.
Many thanks for this instructive and enlightening interview. Zakharova does seem quite worried, as well as reasonably indignant at the misbheaviour of the UK authorities.
The internal racial, ideological, cultural, economic and social contradictions of the West have reached the level of a ” perfect storm” level.
@ this point any state worth it’s salt will direct the forecoming explosion somewhere outside it’s territorry.
This time around, due to the fragmantation of given “nations”, and the presence of the net, I do not believe, any of the beligereant states will manage this feat.
They can technically initiate a nuke exchange with Russia(and allies if any), but they can not conduct a war.
Take me, for instance, if I was handed a main battle rifle with ammunition and the training, I would immediately desert…and use the above hardware against the all so obvious ” enemies domestic”.
I KNOW, I wouldn’t b alone.
My suggestion to the ” elite” is to start packing.
I fully subscribe to what you just said here.
Give me a stick and an opportunity and I will turn around and beat the hell out of this f’cking insane warwhores.
Even the people who don’t care and have no clue can feel that it’s all going down the wrong path.
She ( May) is definitely possessed Nobody with some clear eye can deny this anymore.
Maybe Russia should have treated this like a joke

Thank you for posting the video interview. Such a ray of sunshine of logic against a backdrop of insanity and complete stupidity …..
The so called west has become so embarrising from europe to NZ… when they speak ……
Is there no intelligent life anywhere in the west amongst the political class… dont answer !
My reading says nope ……
Skripal is a UK or US spy, yes. He will not be missed.
I loved that she clearly made that point.
Skirpal was working for the Russian government when he was recruited by British intelligence to spy on his country. There is no doubt that the proper term of reference is to call him a ‘British Spy’.
Zakharova says Skirpal was a British spy, never a Russian spy.
I thought he was working for the GRU, posted to Malta, and then stationed in Spain when he was recruited by MI6.
Wouldn’t that technically make him a double agent, at least between 1995 until he was arrested in 2004?
What was an officer of the GRU doing in Malta and then Madrid? Are we to believe he worked for the GRU but wasn’t conducting intelligence work in Malta and Spain?
What am i missing here?
C-Span broadcast the UN Security Council meeting about the alleged nerve agent incident yesterday:
I was struck by how many Security Council members were British allies/Western block members. Needless to say, they all accepted the British claims and ignored the Russian questions. It reminded me very strongly of the Iraqi WMD lynch mob. I think the British accusation can be summed up as: “When will Russia stop beating its Wife?”
Ironic…when asked about where to from here the response is that politican’s and government personnel should not make these decisions but rather academics, historian’s and even philosophers. A nod to the halls of academia.
In the West we’re gradually being told not to trust these same groups but rather just follow the politicians and government officials blindly.
Telling on significant differences methinks.
In the West, the whole lot is rubbish. What difference would it make listening to, say, the fabulous philosopher BHL rather than Macron?
One serious thing being overlooked is that MI5/MI6 attempted to poison Skripal’s daughter – a Russian national. And the Brits won’t allow the Russian Consul to see her as international law allows. This is a highly serious issue and the Russians should make more of a show about this.
Unfortunately, Russia cannot win
Either access is denied or it is granted.
If it is denied then the media will continue its feeding frenzy on Russia.
Or, it is granted …. but the ‘west’ will not believe anything Russia says. Also, if something then happened to Skripal or his daughter then, of course, it was the Russians silencing them.
Tony Blair is an enigma wrapped in a riddle …..
He is way above average smart. I have always wondered why he agreed to go to war. What is the agenda? I write, ‘is’, because I suspect the same agenda exists today …. if it exists ….. who knows??
I hope it is just a lot of second rate minds in charge at the moment and it is all just a muddle rather than evil intent.
However, was it a muddle that was the root cause of WWI?
or, evil intent?
As Bob Dylan wrote, “Something is going on, but we don’t know what it is ….. ”
When you think about it, everything has gone downhill since they let women vote ….. just a thought ….. : )
My admiration for this woman is limitless.

While I’m at it. My admiration for this man is limitless.
Great work with the interpretation. However, rather than overlaying the interpretation over the text at the bottom of the screen, the original text should have been scrubbed off to make the English subtitles clearer. I’m really straining to read the text.
Thanks Eugenia. M. Zakharova proves her warrior princess status for sure. She was a bit too nice in giving the secret service and liars of the West credit for finally having to expose their lies. No one has done so regarding the “big ones” i.e. 9/11 or even the 60 year old JFK assassination. Some things go to the grave including:
Using the blame Russia hysteria to tie up loose ends–most convenient. Vulnerable Russians should leave the UK.
At 14:33 into the video, MZ makes the following astute remark regarding these God-awful British charlatans:
”An idea comes to mind (maybe not a conclusion but a question): This means that either they have samples, which they conceal, or the whole thing is a lie from start to finish.”
My bet is on the latter proposal. Thank God Putin isn’t lying about Russia’s military prowess.
Turns Out “Novichok” Isn’t a Russian Chemical Weapon… The UK Lied Trough Its Teeth
(Under the Video you see Novichkov, but there is none such Russian word. Novichok is
presumably wrong written.)
This does all resemble theatre as Ms Zakharova says. But why? From an article by Seth Ferris, one wonders whether the outcome will include the US grabbing Gibralter.
Odd how in so many of the videos some of the actors are dressed to the hilt in full hazmat garb… and nearby bystanders are just lolly gagging around without PPE. Bad theater for what I view as just another staged event to distract the masses of gullible tax livestock of what the other hand is doing elsewhere in the world. Tomorrow is the spring equinox… on March 20, 2003 the US/NATO attack Iraq.
