Were The Skripals Secretly Executed By Britain’s Government?

The place are Sergei and Yulia Skripal? Are they nonetheless alive?
Their having been poisoned in England on four March 2018
didn’t kill them.

Sergei Skripal is (or was) the
Russian and British double agent (Russian spy who defected
to UK), who had grow to be imprisoned for six years in Russia,
after which grew to become spy-swapped to, and resided in,

Yulia is (or was) his daughter, who occurred to be
visiting with him from Russia on that fateful day, which
nearly ended her life however which undoubtedly did finish her

The final time that both Sergei or Yulia
had been seen or heard from in news-media, was on 23 Might 2018,
shortly after each of them had been launched by a British
hospital from their poisoning.

That they had been poisoned
by a nerve agent which the UK Authorities stated got here from
Russia, however the UK’s laboratory at Porton Down that had
truly investigated the matter declined to substantiate
publicly this allegation from their Authorities, although the
lab was below appreciable stress from the Authorities to
affirm it.

At this sole event of public
presentation by both of them, on 23 Might 2018, solely Yulia
appeared. She was proven in a pre-scripted one-minute and
thirty-eight second video, by which she spoke solely in
Russian, and this video was accompanied by a equally transient
and puzzling 23 Might 2018 news-report from Reuters: “Exclusive:
Yulia Skripal – Attempted assassination turned my world
upside down”

It stated that “Skripal was
talking from a secret location in London as she is below
the safety of the British state.” (As will right here be
documented, she wasn’t truly in London on the time, and
each she and her father had been now truly prisoners of the
UK and U.S. Governments, with none trial and on no
expenses, and possibly till they each shall be useless — however
that’s the query right here: are they now already

Additionally: “Skripal spoke in Russian and equipped
an announcement that she stated she had written herself in each
Russian and English. She signed each paperwork after making
her assertion. She declined to reply questions after
talking to digital camera.”

The Reuters report additionally
included this:

that’s a pdf of a photographic type that can not be scanned
or searched and so it was particularly meant to
discourage being quoted from, excerpted, or reported about,
by different news-media. Sadly, no news-medium has taken
the difficulty to learn it from that {photograph} and transcribe
it by hand. Reuters has been profitable at discouraging
different media from reporting on this. Due to this fact, in order to make
this whole transcript publicly obtainable lastly in an
simply usable type, for the good thing about researchers and
others, I’m doing that right here, and this transcript shall be
Yulia’s full assertion, which was proven by Reuters in
the type of a handwritten be aware solely in English, although the
video had her talking solely in Russian. No Russian
transcript was equipped by Reuters, although their report
alleges {that a} Russian authentic in her handwriting
accompanied the English model. Right here is that this searchable

Good afternoon. My title is Yulia
Skripal. I got here to the UK on the third of March to go to my
father, one thing I’ve been doing commonly up to now.
After 20 days in a coma, I woke to the information that we had each
been poisoned. I nonetheless discover it troublesome to return to phrases
that each of us had been attacked. We’re so fortunate to have each
survived this tried assassination. Our restoration has been
gradual and very painful. The truth that a nerve agent was
used to do that is stunning. I don’t wish to describe the
particulars however the scientific remedy was invasive, painful and

I’m grateful to all the

grow to be all too accustomed to. I additionally suppose fondly of these

life has been turned the wrong way up as I attempt to come to phrases
with the devastating modifications thrust upon me each bodily
and emotionally. I take at some point at a time and wish to assist

hope to return to my nation.

I want to deal with
a few points immediately and have chosen to interrupt my
rehabilitation to make this quick assertion. I ask that
everybody respects the privateness of me and my father. We’d like
time to get better and are available to phrases with every thing that has
occurred. I’m grateful for the provides of help from
the Russian Embassy however in the mean time I don’t want to avail
myself of their companies.

Additionally, I wish to
reiterate what I stated in my earlier assertion that nobody
speaks for me, or for my father, however

Lastly, I want to once more thank
everybody concerned in my continued care.

well being

That’s the final time the general public has
heard from both Yulia or her father.

on eight December 2019, the Australian and American impartial
investigative journalist John Helmer, who studies from
Moscow, revealed an article that conclusively situated the place
Yulia had been talking from in that video. He headlined
there “THE
and he offered stable
documentation that that video was filmed at that location,
which wasn’t “in London.” So, the dealing with of the
Skripals is each a UK Authorities and a U.S. Authorities

As I reported
on 17 April 2020
, a one-minute-and-forty-seven-second
rushed cellphone name had been made by Yulia on 5 April 2018
from the British hospital, by which name she used coded
language to tell her cousin Victoria Skripal, who was in
Russia, that she and her father had been being prohibited by the
UK’s Authorities to speak with the skin world,
and, on the identical day as that rushed cellphone name, Helmer
that “In Moscow, her cousin Victoria Skripal
has advised the Russian press she has repeatedly tried to
phone her cousin on the latter’s Russian cell
phone, however that this machine has been disconnected.”
So, there are clear indications that UK’s Authorities
doesn’t need both Yulia or Sergei to have the ability to
talk ever once more with the skin world. Moreover,
as I additionally acknowledged in that article:

The “Court
of Protection … Date 22/03/2018”
which appears to have decided their authorized destiny, didn’t
even seek the advice of any of their kin, and, based on John
Helmer’s terrific ebook simply issued,
in Prison
, (p. 74), additionally “The Russian
Authorities was not consulted or knowledgeable upfront” about
the continuing, and due to this fact was allowed no position by any means
in deciding the outcomes concerning these two Russian
UK Court’s ruling
, on 22 March [2018],
acknowledged that “Neither Mr Skripal nor Ms Skripal seem to
have kin within the UK though they seem to have some
kin in Russia. The SSHD
[Secretary of State for
Home Development] haven’t sought to make contact with
them.” No rationalization was offered on why. So, the
Skripals are stranded

That three-day
court-hearing (it wasn’t a trial) occurred earlier than both
of the Skripals had awoken from their coma; so, they too had
no position in it. They grew to become prisoners of UK whereas below
sedation. That is British ‘justice’ (or
‘Safety’). (Britain, after all, just like the U.S.,
pontificates overseas about ‘human rights’ and invades
overseas nations that it accuses of violating “human
rights”; so, it’s bottom-of-the-barrel, not solely
rampantly violating human rights, however hypocritically
pontificating about ‘human rights’.)

Their Russian
kin have been extraordinarily involved about all of this.
On 11 April 2018, Britain’s Every day Mail confirmed a
picture of “Yulia’s
cousin, Viktoria Skripal, 45, protesting outside the British
embassy in Moscow and demanding to be issued a visa to visit
her stricken relatives in the UK”
. It was

Nobody outdoors can attain them, they usually
can’t attain anybody outdoors, apart from a only a few rushed
phone-contacts that the UK allowed them till June this yr
to their Russian kin, with a purpose to preserve these kin
as quiet as attainable for so long as

Moreover, the final chapter of Helmer’s
ebook opens:

“You kill traitors such as you brush
your tooth. It wasn’t a political matter, it was an
operational matter,” a senior Whitehall official stated of
his Russian counterparts to Mark City, the BBC reporter
whom MI6 assigned to jot down Sergei Skripal’s story a couple of
months earlier than it was anyone’s thought to complete it off; the
ebook, if not Skripal.

The official and the
reporter meant they’d little question the Russian Authorities’s
motive for attacking Skripal was a routine coverage of
killing. If that’s as true as City and his Whitehall
supply meant for public consumption, Sergei and Yulia
Skripal must be the primary to say so.

they’re refusing is a part of the case this ebook has compiled
that the British Authorities’s narrative gives no
proof which the Whitehall man, his superiors and his
underlings dare to submit in court docket, not to mention enable for
Freedom of Info Act launch. The second a part of the
case is evaluation of as a lot of the proof as has been
introduced formally to show its improbability or
show its impossibility. When the primary half is in comparison with
the second, the third a part of the case is the conclusion:
the British Authorities’s case in opposition to Russia for
tried homicide and chemical warfare is a

That lie leaves Sergei Skripal
free to brush his tooth. However he’s in a jail which is much
extra solitary than the Russian ones by which he spent six
years between 2004 and 2010. In accordance with what Skripal advised
City in 2017, when Skripal nonetheless thought he was secure in
Salisbury, he commonly acquired meals packages and different
comforts from his household throughout his Russian jail time. He
additionally cherished his household a lot that – once more based on
City’s report – after he arrived within the UK he used to
phone his mom each two weeks over eight years. It’s
now clear he has not known as dwelling since June 26,

He’s both dying, or useless already,
based on some Russian commentators.

Skripal has been reduce off for nearly a yr longer – since
July 24, 2018, the date of her grandmother’s 90th
birthday. It’s equally sure that neither Sergei nor
Yulia are free to make use of a pc with web entry to
talk. City claims that after Yulia had come out of
her coma and was nonetheless in Salisbury hospital, she “had
already exchanged messages on-line” along with her cousin
Viktoria in Yaroslavl.

“What was to be achieved
with him?” City ended his ebook in September 2018. “From
the British authorities perspective it was higher that he
stay quietly out of view, even when an announcement like
Yulia’s would possibly observe. In principle he was free to do or say
something, whether or not that be launching a blistering assault on
the British authorities for failing to guard him from
Putin’s assassins to pleading it had all been a horrible
misunderstanding and will he return to Russia now
please.” Viktoria Skripal, although, “had proven them how,
even beginning with the perfect intentions, going public carried
the chance of making untold household ache in addition to serving
the Kremlin’s pursuits. Sergei and his daughter had been so
depending on the British authorities at the moment that there
was each motive to observe the recommendation of these round

In accordance with City additionally, they don’t
wish to disguise within the US. “There had been ideas from
Downing Avenue, whereas the Skripals had been in hospital, that
they may nicely find yourself in America or one other
English-speaking nation, and be given new identities.
Neither of them, I hear, significantly favored this

On 7 June 2020, the neoconservative
(pro-imperialism) London Occasions headlined “Salisbury novichok
poisonings: Sergei and Yulia Skripal move to New
, and unquestioningly asserted as in the event that they had been
unquestionable information (as neocon ’information’-media, truly
propaganda-media, nearly invariably do) the allegations by
the routinely mendacity UK Authorities (a provably unreliable
supply concerning something regarding its worldwide
relations). On this explicit case, these ‘information’
involved the poisonings by Russia of Yulia Skripal and
Sergei Skripal.

If Yulia and Sergei have each been
executed by Britain’s Authorities, then the
Occasions’s publication of an undocumented allegation
by UK’s Authorities, that they’d as an alternative each been despatched
to New Zealand and given new identities there, is a
handy approach for UK’s Authorities to keep away from ever needing
to face the general public after having regularly lied to the
public by blaming Russia’s Authorities for the poisonings
that had occurred to each the daddy and the

If the Skripals have been offered new
identities and despatched to dwell in New Zealand, will they be
free of Britain’s imprisonment of them? Will, for
instance, they lastly be free of the situation that
“neither Sergei nor Yulia are free to make use of a pc with
web entry to speak,” and can they be free to,
for instance, learn newspapers and different media which are
accessible on-line? Or will they nonetheless be within the
‘Protecting’ custody of the UK Authorities, or will it
then be of the NZ Authorities? And can they have the ability, for
instance, to renew actual residing, and perhaps (if they want) to
write and publish books about what they will recollect about
what has occurred to them after four March 2018? Will the
UK’s Authorities need that to occur? Will the UK’s
Authorities, which has lied about a lot, be comfy
about returning the Skripals’ freedom? Or, will it,
as an alternative, proceed ‘defending’ them?

Yulia Skripal
was a Russian citizen who solely shortly earlier than her airline
flight to UK to go to along with her father, had grow to be engaged in
Russia to marry a fellow Russian (and not one of the couple’s
dad and mom authorized of their meant marriage; this triggered
each Yulia and her fiancé nice misery), when, on four March
2018, she and Sergei had been in some way poisoned by a chemical
that UK’s Porton Down intelligence laboratory quickly
thereafter recognized as being a “nerve agent” which
may need been novichok, however whose supply and nation of
origin the Porton Down lab was unable to establish with any
certainty. UK’s Overseas Minister, Boris Johnson, stated that
Porton Down had recognized the chemical as having been made
in Russia, however he was merely mendacity, as he routinely does.
(He’s famous
for it
, truly, like Trump is.)

father, Sergei, had been a Russian citizen who had served in
Britain as a spy for Russia, who then switched sides to
grow to be a spy for UK in opposition to Russia. At a while in December
2004, proper after getting back from UK to Russia, he was taken
into custody to be tried for treason for his having offered out
to the nation that his personal nation had employed him to spy
in opposition to. Honor within the intelligence companies is much decrease
than is honor amongst thieves (like Mike Pompeo very
unprofessionally bragged publicly about his time heading the
CIA, “We
lied, we cheated, we stole”
), however mendacity
‘information’-media nonetheless cite their very own nation’s prime
intelligence officers as if these individuals had been employed to
inform the reality to the general public, as an alternative of to deceive the
public into believing regardless of the Authorities’s prime
officers need their public to imagine about overseas
nations. But the general public belief the allegations by them that
are stenographically reported by the ‘information’-media.
(Consider the invasion of Iraq, for instance.) Public
statements by intelligence officers are believed solely by
fools, however that sadly contains a lot of the public
wherever, which is without doubt one of the the explanation why democracies have a tendency
to descend into dictatorships, that are the precise default
situation for any authorities wherever. Democracy is
unnatural, although it’s much better than is that pure
default situation. Evil is pure, and good will not be, however the
propaganda lies about this reality, and pretends that good is
pure and evil will not be; so, it lies about what good and
evil even are, and the general public overwhelmingly imagine
the lies. The general public have faith.
(All else follows from that unhappy reality.)

On 9
August 2006
, was reported, in Russia, that

Moscow District Army Courtroom sentenced former GRU colonel
Sergei Skripal … [as having] labored for the British MI6
for 9 years and uncovered to UK the names of dozens of
Russian intelligence officers who labored in Europe. For

in contrast with Oleg Penkovsky on the FSB, was assigned a
13-year time period. On the similar time, intelligence companies
threaten to expel diplomats with whom the spy allegedly

Sergei, after having been in a
Russian jail for six years on treason, was spy-swapped in
2010 again to UK.

Yulia Skripal will not be as naive because the

she or her father are nonetheless alive someplace and never nonetheless
being held captive by the UK regime or a regime that’s
allied with it, then one could count on that Yulia and/or Sergei

they had been in captivity by the UK regime and its allies such

Had this poisoning been achieved truly by the
UK Authorities so as to have the ability to create a pretext to
expel Russian diplomats? As Wikipedia summarizes
those consequences
: “In a while 12 March, the British
authorities accused Russia of tried homicide and introduced
a sequence of punitive measures in opposition to Russia, together with the
expulsion of diplomats, on the 14 March. The UK’s official
evaluation of the incident was supported by 28 different
nations which responded equally. Altogether, an

I don’t fake to be an professional on
the Skripals’ circumstances, however clearly the UK Authorities has
been mendacity by means of its tooth about them, and about what
occurred, and why. What’s particularly unhappy to me is that so
many individuals swallow the lies as if these had been meals as an alternative
of poison. What hope is there for democracy, in such a
world? If individuals have faith
in serial-lying governments, then what hope can there actually
be? What encouragement will there ever be for such
governments to inform the
