Russia is the only reason we did not have a WW3 yet. They are blamed, accused, sanctioned, mockered constantly. UK accusing Russia is total BS. Whole world is supporting Russia, and is tired of bullies like US/UK. They are just trying to destabilize Eastern Europe and Asia, starting with Russia.

cant Britain fight a lone ?

Oscar Garman says:

There's millions of British Muslims. To get back to the point, who else would poison him? It wasn't the yanks was it. And considering what a evil man Putin is I think its more likely then not it was Russia.

Good vs Evil says:

No Russia is much more intelligent and sensible. Its UK/conservative trying to pick a fight with Russia in order to convince EU to not kick Britain out by showing Britain also wants what EU wants i.e. war with Russia. But Russia is not going to fall for it and Brexit will happen.

maybe if the UK starts a war with Russia third world immigrants will stop raping their children

Rita Doucet says:

Russia will NOT instigate/start the coming war, if there is one. Why does the UK protect over 40 Russian political refugee's? Rich People that committed treason against their own government, they should be sent back to face the music yet the UK gives them asylum and thinks there would be no repercussion from them, if these UK Russians can betray their own country do you think they'd remain little angels hiding out in the UK. You asked for your problems. I blame the UK for lying to the world.

John Doe says:

why can't Russia use drone strikes like everyone else? oh right, do what we say not what we do…

Sending bombers in to UK airspace, and training hooligans to attack England fans in Marseilles, all with a wry and sarcastic smile?

Neville Thomas says:

“How did they come to the conclusion about Russian ‘footprint’ if they didn’t give us those sample? Logically they shouldn’t have this substance. Which samples have they compared with to draw such a conclusion?” Zakharova said.

“Questions arise: then, they should have samples, which they conceal, or it is a lie from start to finish,” she said.

“If the UK prime minister and other British experts give the formula, then it will be clear which countries have been developing these agents,” Zakharova said.

Zakharova’s comments echoed those of Russia’s representative at the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Aleksandr Shulgin, who said the ‘Novichok’ research was taken out of the Soviet Union following its collapse.

According to Shulgin, the US and the UK had developed the nerve agent that could have been used in the poisoning of Skripal, and that Russia has never conducted similar research.

Neville Thomas says:

“The most likely source of origin of the toxin are the countries which have been carrying out intense research on the substances from the ‘Novichok’ program, approximately since the end of the 1990s until the present time, and this project is not the creation of Russia or the Soviet Union,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said Saturday.

The US should also “be put under question,” Zakharova said.

The Russian official made the remarks days after British authorities announced that Skripal, 66, and his 33-year-old daughter, Yulia, had been hospitalized since they had been found unconscious on a bench outside a shopping center in the city of Salisbury.

British police attributed the critical illness of the two to a nerve agent developed by the former Soviet Union, while British Prime Minister Theresa May accused Moscow of being responsible.

Neville Thomas says:

Russia has once again denied accusations of involvement in the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal in Britain, saying the substance used in the attack could have originated from the countries studying the “Novichok” nerve agent, including the UK, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Sweden.

Neville Thomas says:

UK potential origin of ‘Novichok’ nerve agent: Russia

Conservative Christianity is the Truth says:

The US is god's representative on earth. Get right with Jesus Kanada or we will simply annex your pathetic little country for its resources.
