    With Skripals it's screeching (screech, squeak, creak = skripal in Russian): 4 hours GPS blackout

    That day for 4 hours in the morning, they switched off their mobiles.

    (cannot find it on RT, can we believe UK's media?)

    There does seem to be a "connection" between Mr Skripal (ex UK Spy) -> Pablo Miller (MI6 agent in Moscow, now living in Salisbury) -> Christopher Steele (MI6 agent in Moscow, Fusion member/Cambridge Analytica/Strategic Communication Laboratories (SCL Group) and the concocted Trump dossier. Now living in salisbury) -> John Scarlet (MI6 agent responsible for sexing up the WMD Iraqi war dossier) -> Blundering Boris

    Bella Caledonia it's time to get above ourselves

    What is the CID seargent doing in Salisbury when he lives 30 miles away and not a local Policeman. When was he "infected", where was he "Infected". How was he cured and with what drug. What is his background?

    What was blundering Boris doing at SCL group last November.

    What information did Mr. Skripal give to Mr. Steele so that he might sexup his dossier presented to the ameristani democrat party?

    Was Mr. Skripal poisoned to shut him up by MI6/UK Government?

    When will the cctv from Salisbury made available to the press.

    Where are the Skripals being treated?

    An interesting development.

    I don't think such a serious response would be made by so many countries without compelling reason. Even if it's not public knowledge.

    While our resident tinfoil hat brigade scramble to blame it on everyone else, the rest of the world takes action against the real culprit.

    WORLD NEWSMARCH 26, 2018 / 4:04 PM / UPDATED 16 MINUTES AGO


    U.S. and EU expel scores of Russian diplomats in response to UK nerve attack

    Michael Holden, Roberta Rampton

    6 MIN READ


    LONDON/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States said on Monday it would expel 60 Russian diplomats, joining governments across Europe punishing the Kremlin for a nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy in Britain that they have blamed on Moscow.


    It was the strongest action that U.S. President Donald Trump had taken against Russia since coming to office. He has come under criticism from Democrats and from members of his own Republican party for failing to be tough enough on Russia over allegations of Russian meddling in the U.S. electoral system including the 2016 presidential campaign.


    Besides the United States, 14 European Union countries also expelled Russian diplomats, European Council President Donald Tusk said. Ukraine and Canada also took action, and in total Monday’s announcements affected more than 100 Russian diplomats - the biggest Western expulsion of Russian diplomats since the height of the Cold War.


    British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson tweeted that, “Today’s extraordinary international response by our allies stands in history as the largest collective expulsion of Russian intelligence officers ever and will help defend our shared security.”


    British Prime Minister Theresa May said the coordinated measures “clearly demonstrate that we all stand shoulder to shoulder in sending the strongest signal to Russia that it cannot continue to flout international law”.


    Russia’s Foreign Ministry called the actions a “provocative gesture” and promised to respond. The Kremlin spokesman said the West’s response was a “mistake” and that Russian President Vladimir Putin would make a final decision about Russia’s response.


    Moscow has denied being behind the attack on Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the southern English city of Salisbury on March 4. Skripal, 66, and his 33-year-old daughter Yulia were found unconscious on a public bench in a shopping center, and remain critically ill in hospital.


    The staff expelled by the United States included 12 intelligence officers from Russia’s mission to United Nations headquarters in New York. Trump also ordered the closure of the Russian consulate in Seattle.


    “To the Russian government we say: when you attack our friends, you will face serious consequences,” a senior U.S. administration official told reporters, speaking on condition of anonymity.


    The individuals concerned and their families have been given a week to leave the United States, according to one of the officials briefing reporters.


    Trump, who before he took office in January last year promised warmer ties with Putin, last week congratulated the Russian leader on his re-election, drawing criticism from Republicans and Democrats alike. Trump said the two leaders had made tentative plans to meet in the “not too distant future.”


    “The last time that the United States expelled so many Russian spies was when the Reagan administration ordered 55 Soviet diplomats out of the country in 1986,” said Angela Stent, director of the Center for Eurasian, Russian and East European Studies at Georgetown University.


    “This U.S. solidarity with Britain and other European allies after the Skripal poisoning is unprecedented in the post-Soviet era and highlights the continuing downward spiral of Russia’s relations with the West,” she said.


    EU leaders said last week that evidence of Russian involvement in the Salisbury attack presented by British Prime Minister Theresa May was a solid basis for further action.

    Germany and France made good on those threats by announcing expulsions and in a coordinated move, a string of other EU states also ordered expulsions, along with Canada and Ukraine.


    Skripal’s poisoning, alleged to have employed the Soviet-era military-grade nerve agent Novichok, is the first known offensive use of a nerve toxin in Europe since World War Two.


    “In solidarity with our British partners, we have today notified the Russian authorities of our decision to expel four Russian personnel with diplomatic status from French territory within one week,” said French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves le Drian.


    “RESPONSE WILL BE SYMMETRICAL”


    Tusk said further measures could be taken in the coming weeks and months.


    Russia said it would respond in kind.


    “The response will be symmetrical. We will work on it in the coming days and will respond to every country in turn,” the RIA news agency cited an unnamed Foreign Ministry source as saying.


    The Kremlin has accused Britain of whipping up an anti-Russia campaign and has sought to cast doubt on the British analysis that Moscow was responsible. Russia has already ordered 23 British diplomats out of the country after Britain expelled 23 diplomats.


    Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova suggested that the EU’s expression of support for Britain was misguided given that it would be leaving the bloc next year.


    “Britain is leaving the European family. No one canceled Brexit, and the divorce process is in full swing,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on Facebook.


    “Therefore a country which is leaving the European Union is exploiting the solidarity factor and is foisting on those countries that remain a worsening of relations with Russia.”


    A British court has said Skripal and his daughter may have suffered brain damage, while a policeman who went to help them has also indicated that he has suffered lasting damage to his health.


    British Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson hailed the support for Britain during a visit on Monday to Estonia. Britain has troops there as part of a NATO mission to deter any Russian aggression following its seizure of Ukraine’s Crimea in 2014.


    “The world’s patience is rather wearing thin with President Putin and his actions,” Williamson said.


    “Their aim is to divide, and what we are seeing is the world uniting behind the British stance - and that in itself is a great victory and sends an exceptionally powerful message to the Kremlin and President Putin.”

    That same argument was put forward on the Iraq WMD issue.

    No it wasn't. Most of them were paid, either in money or in kind.

    It took a lot of negotiation just to put together a "coalition".

    Vlad must be furious that his little embassy shindig the other week failed miserably.

    In fact his foreign ministry must be frantically summoning ambassadors as we speak.

    Russia is going to become polarised over this.

    Nutters have been taking the piss for too long.

    Need to expell them from Thailand now for a proper revolution.

    Back to the cold war days...

    ...from the BBC:

    One must assume that many or most of the Russian diplomats designated for expulsion are intelligence operatives. Thus the cumulative impact on Russia's overseas intelligence activities could be considerable.
    Russia must now ponder what actions it will take in response. But President Putin could never have imagined there would be this degree of solidarity.
    Russia perceived Britain as weak and increasingly isolated; the EU as distracted; and the Trump administration as off-balance and compromised by President Trump's own curious unwillingness to castigate Moscow.
    Mr Putin may have made a serious mistake. This is in many ways a remarkable display of concerted European action, though he may prefer to note that by no means all members of the EU have participated.

    Let's not forget that all the actions are against the Russian govt, not the Russian people - as May has pointed out.
    How heart-warming, it's more than the good Bliar had done: sacrificed lives (not his) of his own subjects to liberate the Iraqi people from dictator (their lives not counted)...

Estonia, Latvia, Croatia, Finland, Hungary, Sweden and Romania each expelled one Russian. Iceland announced it would not be sending officials to the World Cup in Russia.

    Ukraine, which is not an EU member, is to expel 13 Russian diplomats, while Albania, an EU candidate member, ordered the departure of two Russians from the embassy in Tirana. Macedonia, another EU candidate, expelled one Russian official.

    Canada announced it was expelling four diplomatic staff serving in Ottawa and Montreal who the Canadian government said were spies. A pending application from Moscow for three more diplomatic posts in Canada is being denied.

    Australia confirmed that it too would expel two Russian diplomats who were in the country as undeclared intelligence officers, giving them seven days to leave."

    The "rest of the world" ? Another "sexed up" statement without any essence of truth or facts to substantiate it.

    206 countries in the world, from some sources, of which 22 have sent Russian diplomats home. Less than 10%. Get a grip 'arry

    I'm not talking about his little propaganda garden party. That clearly had little effect.

    I'm talking about his response to the Diplomatic world telling him to fuck off.

    Try and keep up.

    After all, when so many friendly states ("international community"?) have expressed such "solidarity", no need to investigate any longer, it's enough "highly likely", isn't it?
    The case closed...

    Foreign Ministry statement

    564-26-03-2018





    We express our strong protest in the wake of the decision taken by a number of EU and NATO member countries to expel Russian diplomats.


    We consider this as an unfriendly step that is not consistent with the goals and interests of establishing the underlying reasons and searching for the perpetrators of the incident that occurred in the town of Salisbury on March 4. The provocative gesture of the so-called solidarity of these countries with London, which blindly followed the British authorities in the so-called “Skripal case” and which never got around to sort out the circumstances of the incident, is a continuation of the confrontational policy to escalate the situation.


    Presenting unfounded charges against Russia in the absence of explanations of what happened and refusing to engage in meaningful interaction, the British authorities have de facto adopted a prejudiced, biased as well as hypocritical stance.


    This is an attempt on the lives of Russian citizens on the territory of Great Britain. Despite our repeated requests for information addressed to London, Russia does not have any information in this regard. British allies don’t have any objective and exhaustive data and blindly follow the principle of Euro-Atlantic unity at the expense of common sense, the rules of civilised state-to-state dialogue and the principles of international law. It goes without saying that this unfriendly move by this group of countries will not go unnoticed, and we will respond to it.
