BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:40 P.M.) – The Russian Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Alexander Yakovenko, has officially accused British intelligence of carrying out the Sergei Skripal poisoning – since blamed on Russian spies.
According to the Russian ambassador, there are two motivations for the false-flag attack by British intelligence: first, that the UK is trying to cover up the fact that Brussels has dictated to London almost all the terms of the Brexit agreement (a testament to the country’s dwindling influence in European affairs) and, second, that British Prime Minister Theresa May is attempting to present herself as a strong leader by attacking Russia.
Yakovenko draws his suspicion from the fact that UK intelligence refuses to cooperate with Russian authorities on any level to investigate the poisoning of the turncoat agent.
‘This provocation has been carried out by UK secret services. We are not provided with any facts, they refuse to cooperate with us. Such a state of affairs brings us to the judgment that it is a provocation organized by secret services,’ Yakovenko said in his statement.
