We all know that Putin poisoned the Skripals with Novichok either dobbed onto a door handle in liquid or…later maybe a gel form, or by way of a perfume bottle left under a park bench for Charlie Rowley and Dawn Sturgess to poison themselves with. Additionally the po-po believe that the nerve agent may have been concocted in a public bog in the QE Gardens.
But whew! He’s gotten away with this one, the clever sod. ‘Couple who fell ill in Salisbury not exposed to novichok, police confirm’; Nationality of pair not revealed after a witness on Sunday reported they were Russian, the Guardian, Sept.16
Of course we know that Putin’s trying to kill the EU as well (his Tweetie bird)
@guyverhofstadt “Europe has a fifth column in its ranks: Putin’s cheerleaders who want to destroy Europe & liberal democracy from within: Le Pen, Wilders, Farage, Orbàn, Kaczynski, Salvini use Kremlin money & intel. Like Farage’s friend Arron Banks, who colluded w/ Russians to deliver #Brexit
But: the GRU agents Putin sent to Salisbury to Novichok poison killers sent by Russia for Salisbury assassination ‘practised nerve agent attacks for months’, EXCLUSIVE: British military intelligence sources told the Mirror it is feared Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Bochirov have practised nerve agent attacks for months before the Salisbury operation, mirror.co.uk, Sept. 5, 2018
“We also learned the pair are likely to have been on undercover missions across the West, Europe and Britain several times before they came in March.
The two crack soldiers – recruited from the Red Army and trained for years to gather intelligence on enemy forces and launch kill missions – were tonight in hiding in Russia.
Their commanders are thought to control Russia’s nerve agent stockpile and its nuclear capability, contained in a briefcase carried by military chiefs and President Vladimir Putin.
The GRU is also suspected of being behind the shooting down of the Malaysian airliner MH17 as it flew over East Ukraine in 2014, killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew members.
(One ex-British military intelligence source told the Mirror):
“We should be deeply concerned that the GRU appears to have control of Russia’s Novichok supply as well. It could mean the domestic security forces have relinquished control of it.”
You might want to click into the Mirror link if for no other reason to read the vast ‘stories’ and photos of the ‘Novichok Assassinations’ on the right sidebar.
Bellingcat ‘all-volunteer’ online investigative services agrees, strangely enough. Skripal Poisoning Suspect’s Passport Data Shows Link to Security Services’, September 14, 2018 (I love this though):
Read The Insider Russian report on this same topic here. (in Russian, I assume)
Teh awesome, award-winning bellingcats on Twitter.
Who shot down MH17?
‘Vladimir Putin Should Take Responsibility for the MH17 Shootdown; It’s pretty obvious that the pro-Russian rebels did it, though it’s not certain yet. Yet Putin refuses to look in the mirror’, Bob Dreyfuss, July 18, 2014, the nation.com
Rats! Maybe…not: ‘Russia reveals the MH17 ‘smoking gun’, Defense Ministry provides missile engine evidence, shifting blame to the Ukrainian military, pepe escobar, atimes.com, Sept. 18, 2018
Wasn’t bellingcat on the Not side of the Prop or Not list? If so, it figures.
Bellingcat on the Twit Machine; epic agitprop.
And last but not least (h/t Snoopydawg): ‘British Police Find Putin’s Passport at Scene of Salisbury Poison Attack; We’ve been wrong, Putin really did it, The Postillon a German parody news website, via russia-insider.com, Sept. 11
“According to Prime Minister Theresa May, the passport was only now found in another search of the scene, as it had been hidden under a fallen leaf.”
““Russia has 24 hours to extradite Vladimir Putin for questioning in London”, according to a statement issued by the British government. “Refusal will be taken as admission of guilt.”
Please add your own Putin.Did.It. satire at will; I know there’s so much more. Including WikilLeaks’ revelations brought to you by…Putin’s Roosisans.
