The foreign policy of the Russian Federation also failed in Britain
According to the Prime Minister, Russia’s involvement in the poisoning of former GRU officer Sergei Skripal is “very likely.”
During the meeting, May named the substance that poisoned Skripal. According to her, we are talking about the nerve gas from the family “Novice”, developed in the USSR.
The British Prime Minister also said that in connection with the incident in Salisbury, the country’s Foreign Ministry called the Russian ambassador, and announced the deterioration of relations between the two countries.
The question is not whether the GRU poisoned Skripal or not, but that it has become possible to make any accusation against Russia without even thinking about its authenticity or even reasonableness.
You know, in Turkey, a NATO country, in front of the public, the Russian ambassador was murdered. And nothing. Maxim died, and … that was it.
In Britain, no one knows who poisoned the former spy with a substance that resembles a poison developed in the USSR — and the prime minister of the British government announces the deterioration of relations with Russia.
There are many questions — this traitor spent six years in a Russian prison, where he could have been eliminated without any fuss. Now he, quietly transferred to Britain in exchange for a failed Russian agent, is someone of interest to Moscow? Well, who would have exchanged him, if he was of interest.
After all, no one even asks, what’s the matter? Suppose the Soviet poison could be in the hands of any post-Soviet special services, interested in worsening relations between Russia and Britain?
Well, the “secret agent” goes to Salisbury shopping, eats in restaurants — even a schoolboy could poison him.
Maybe there was a reason to poison him right now and the GRU is a secret organization, its cuisine is by definition unpopular. But then bring charges, give evidence …
This is the failure of Russia’s foreign policy — that Russia can now be blamed with or without cause. And then when everyone gets used to it, and when you strike at a convenient moment, nobody is surprised — well, this is Russia … So it was with Iraq, so it was with Libya, so it happens with Syria. In Saudi Arabia people’s hands and heads are chopped off, yet the intolerable regime for some reason is in Damascus.
Next in line is Moscow. And we know who’s at fault. It’s all his fault now, he’s “our everything.”
P.S. The poisoning of 28 people by thallium at an aircraft factory in Taganrog is not an occasion to call the Ukrainian ambassador. And in vain …
