“Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson had told the ambassador Moscow must immediately provide full and complete disclosure of the Novichok programme to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. Should there be no credible response, we will conclude that this action amounts to an unlawful use of force by the Russian state against the United Kingdom.”
Prime Minister Theresa May — March 12 2018
“This is a carefully constructed drama as part of the propaganda campaign that has been building now for several years in order to justify the actions of NATO [the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation], Britain the United States, towards Russia. That’s a fact. The whole role of Porton Down has been integral to the Cold War apparatus of this.”
“And this is so dangerous, with Russia being effectively pushed into a corner with these accusations, it’s part of a propaganda campaign. I can tell you that, I’m a journalist who has spent almost all my career working in the mainstream [media] in Britain. This is a propaganda campaign promoted specifically in the media and in the Government.”

March 12 2018 — Prime minister Theresa May told MPs that the government had concluded it was “highly likely” that Russia was responsible for the attack on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury on 4 March 2018. Follow us on Twitter: @Intel_Today

UPDATE ( March 12 2019) — In matters of espionage and National Security, no one covers the news better than the BBC or The Guardian. Day after day, their “presstitutes” will cover the truth under layers of lies until their readers can no longer tell which way is up. The Lockerbie affair is a case in point.
The Skripals’ story is another first-rate example. The official narrative is simply utter nonsense.
No one who has looked into the case in any detail can possibly be satisfied that the account given by the UK Government and The Metropolitan Police are correct.
The narrative put out by the Metropolitan Police is not simply questionable, it is plain impossible.
The most fundamental flaw in it (and there are many flaws), is that the poisoning took place at the door handle of Mr Skripal’s house, in broad daylight, with Mr Skripal and Yulia both inside, and using a spray (which would have released particles of nerve agent into the air).
Yulia and Segei Skripal — two people of differing sex, different height, different metabolisms, different ages, and different state of health (he being a diabetic) — were contaminated with Novichok — a nerve agent said to be up to 10 times stronger than VX.
And yet they were able to go about their lives as if nothing had happened for over 2 hours, before collapsing simultaneously.
Seriously, how many Russians does it take to close a door?
I would like to recommend two important articles for those who want to be well-informed on this case.
Rob Slane, from the Blogmire, has penned another superb piece about the nonsense of the official narrative of the Skripals’ poisoning:
Former UK ambassador Craig Murray has also summarized the reasons why he cannot believe the official story:
Last week, I was contacted by Channel One Russia for an interview. I can only repeat to you what I told them.

I do not know what happened to Sergei and Yulia Skripal. But the official British account is simply not credible.
END of UPDATE
The chemical used in the attack has been identified as being part of a group of nerve agents known as “Novichok”.
“Either the Russian state was directly responsible for the poisoning or it had allowed the poison, which belonged the Novichok group of nerve agents, to get into the hands of others,” May told Britain’s parliament.
“On Wednesday we will consider in detail the response from the Russian state.”
“Should there be no credible response, we will conclude that this action amounts to an unlawful use of force by the Russian state against the United Kingdom.”
