UK Deploys Army over Russian Spy Poisoning Case

||| Credit - Twitter @Theglobeandmail |||

The British army will assist the London metropolitan police in its investigation into the Russian double spy poisoning case in which an unidentified ‘nerve agent’ was used. Some 180 military personnel that are experts in chemical warfare and decontamination have been called upon and have arrived at the scene in Salisbury.

So far, 21 people have been taken ill in what the UK government considers an assassination attempt sponsored by a foreign state, most likely under orders of the Russian Kremlin.

As we’ve informed you, a 60-year old Russian army colonel, called Sergei Skripal whom many consider to have worked as a double spy for both Russia and the UK, was poisoned together with his daughter earlier this week with an unknown ‘nerve agent’. The police officer that found them has also been taken ill. All three are in a clinically induced coma and stay under constant surveillance.

The Russian government itself is mostly concerned with the upcoming elections and decided to react yesterday for the first time via a news show, in which it’s host warned for ‘traitors’ living a dangerous life, in what many understood was a veiled threat.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">‘Traitors are not safe on British soil, says Russia’, is the headline of today’s <a href="">@TheTimes</a> in relation to Skripal case. Except ‘Russia’ hasn’t said that. It’s the comments of one stupid Russian tv presenter. <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FakeNews</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Neil Clark (@NeilClark66) <a href="">March 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

Today the Russian embassy in London tweeted, saying: "Investigation of Sergei Skripal case follows the Litvinenko script: most info to be classified, Russia to get no access to investigation files and no opportunity to assess its credibility."

(The Litivinenko case refers to another high-profile assassination on UK soil by the Russians in 2006, in which polonium was used).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The Murdoch Press is in no doubt that Vladimir Putin personally ordered the nerve agent attack on Sergei <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Skripal</a> and his daughter in Salisbury. Just as they were in no doubt Brits were ‘45 minutes from doom’ on account of Saddam’s WMDs… <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Neil Clark (@NeilClark66) <a href="">March 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

Asked for a response to the Kremlin’s plot to target someone on UK soil, former security minister Lord West said: "If it is a nation which has done it, it is completely unacceptable. It's almost like an act of war. To actually allow something like a nerve agent to be used in another country for some reason is outrageous."
