Now if I were as naive as this OP over here, I would have thought that UK security is somewhat lacking in abilities, if its citizens die so easily of nerve gas, radioactive chemical attacks and scarf suffocating. But I'm not as stupid and I would consider the security is in top shape if it allows itself to transport such hazardous substances across the whole country without certain consequences.

But that's the other story to brood about, meanwhile far more interesting things are happening.


>Sweeping new powers that U.K. lawmakers introduced earlier this year to crack down on the estimated £90 billion ($126 billion) currently being laundered through companies and luxury real estate in central London. Known as unexplained wealth orders, the new investigative powers allow British law enforcement to demand that any person holding property or assets worth more than £50,000 ($70,000) in the U.K. explain the origin of their wealth.

>unexplained wealth

>“Basically, they are reversing the burden of proof,” says Alexei (the Venetian dandy), a Russian businessman who has lived in London for over 20 years. (He asked for anonymity when discussing his financial affairs.) The British authorities “can label you guilty until you show that you are innocent. London was always an easy place to do business. Now, I think people will think twice about investing there.”

Psst, kid, don't you have some "unexplained wealth" over here? Woops, we took all of you wealth because you did not explain it to us. Now you try to explain how it happened.

  Now the only thing left to do is to put a blame on Russia for everything, as a cherry on top.
Seriously tho, $126 billions, fuck logic and everything. Money.


>"By encouraging trade with Russia, where money certainly talks, we have encouraged the investment in this country of billions of pounds of gangster money from oligarchs.

>"Many people here have felt deeply uneasy about the City's role as the laundromat for dirty money from Russia and her ex-Soviet neighbours.

No shit, it makes people uneasy when there's huge pile of money out there in your country while your economy is experiencing difficulties. Better grab it with both hands until it seeps away.

>"Putin's media emphasise how Russian oligarchs who have fallen foul of the Kremlin are feted in 'Londongrad', where they have effectively taken up asylum."

Now isn't it a neat trick we have here. First you promise these people and their money an ideal refuge in UK, and allow these people to live a luxury life, while ignoring all requests for extradition, cooperation in investigation, asset retrieval and so on. And then you take all of their money, from these stupid fucks. Just write a bunch of new laws.

>"We know that you are a smart boy, and you are also probably wasn't a good boy, so give us all of your money, or else. Or else evil Russians will come for you to take your life (but not your money, your money are in UK and they will not leave the UK even with your pretty please)."

>British cyber spooks have the ability to launch a huge assault on Russia’s infrastructure, industry and military if they are given the go-ahead.


>Theresa May vows revenge on Vladimir Putin for nerve agent hit on ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal

Practically speaking, there are no details on situation released by police as of yet, no background whatsoever, but of course all the measures are already implemented and rolling. In other words, all connections between the case and the reaction to it is pure coincidence and emotional outburst, which is a typical story for British or American politics.

>The immediate expulsion of senior Russian diplomats and spies, as well as potentially cancelling Kremlin-linked oligarch’s visas to London, plus asset freezes and travel bans.
>A statement of joint international condemnation from Britain’s closest allies - France’s President Emmanuel Macron and German leader Angela Merkel.
>In the longer term, boosting Britain’s military deployments in Eastern Europe with more jets and troops, as well as a pushing for a NATO-wide reinforcement at the alliance’s summit in July.

And it turns out that current measures are no different than any of the other ones that has been taken before. In effect, nothing has changed and nothing is going to change as the result of that "attack".
>> No. 118011 ID: 1d521e

>> all connections between the case and the reaction to it is pure coincidence and emotional outburst

Well, when Russia has assassinated multiple high value targets in the recent past, and was already in the headlines because Putin held a speech to say "look at our dick. It's mostly 3D models, but it's sooooo big. You listen to us now...". The reaction isn't exactly pure coincidence. Especially for the brits, who've had almost this exact scenario played out on their soil before.

So, apparently Putin so much wanted to stay in headlines he decided to "assassinate" some absolutely random dude (while there's over 300 000 of other Russian immigrants out there) with his 3D models of maybe-a-nerve-agent.

>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

At this point the story has already departed from "awkward attempt at breaking news" and lands squarely into the field of "comedy gold". Which is more understandable since in recent times NATO countries are often forgetting that they have the ability to communicate.

I guess that's fair advice. For some reason, no other country in the world does have such jarring issues with assassinations of Russian citizens, as well as attempts to relieve them of their money and possessions.

But worry not, UK isn't only country that is famous for regular abuse of human rights and international regulations.

>Despite our permanent calls on Washington to step up normal cooperation between the competent agencies based on the 1999 bilateral Treaty on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters, US authorities continue to “hunt” for Russian nationals around the world, ignoring the rules of international law and putting pressure on other states.

Yes clearly "the west" should have reacted to Russia's invasion of Ukraine by carrying out limited nuclear strikes against Russian cities instead of economic sanctions. That's what Russian doctrine is after all now that they've abandoned MAD.

Or perhaps instead of spending 40 years dumping their entire budget into weapons of war, Russia should have spent on their economy so they didn't turn into a third world country that experiences famine if Portugal boycotts Russian natural gas.

>Russia's invasion of Ukraine
>economic sanctions
Perhaps you aren't old enough to remember what amount of bullshit Russia had to endure in 90s and 00s to be able to earn enough reputation as business partner, access to WTO and some sort of reliable credit rating. All of it to be nullified all over again under absolutely unrelated, bogus, randomized and disproportional measures taken long before 2014.

And no, the economic sanctions weren't the consequence of "invading Ukraine", none of them seem to be, the only direct consequence of that "invasion" was expansion of US military budget and flooding the Eastern Europe with NATO weapons, extremists and influence.

>That's what Russian doctrine is after all now that they've abandoned MAD.
Nobody really abandoned anything like that, if you don't count USA abandoning ABM Treaty of 1972. Russia is still 15 minutes from obliterating the entire NATO military infrastructure (as a response measure, obviously).

Nerve agent has been confirmed as a Novichok agent.
>Theresa May has said it is “highly likely” that Russia was responsible for the poisoning of former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, and warned Britain would not tolerate such a “brazen attempt to murder innocent civilians on our soil”.

>In a statement to the House of Commons that triggered a furious response from Moscow, the prime minister said the evidence had shown that Skripal had been targeted by a “military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia”.

>May addressed MPs after chairing a meeting of the national security council, where senior ministers were told that the nerve agent used was from a group known as Novichok.

>“Based on the positive identification of this chemical agent by world-leading experts at Porton Down, our knowledge that Russia has previously produced this agent and would still be capable of doing so, Russia’s record of conducting state-sponsored assassinations, and our assessment that Russia views some defectors as legitimate targets for assassinations, the government has concluded that it is highly likely that Russia was responsible for the act against Sergei and Yulia Skripal,” she said.

>The prime minister said that left just two plausible explanations for what happened in Salisbury.

>“Either this was a direct act by the Russian state against our country. Or the Russian government lost control of this potentially catastrophically damaging nerve agent and allowed it to get into the hands of others.”

>"why does the world see russia as a bad guy?!?!"

>“Either this was a direct act by the Russian state against our country. Or the Russian government lost control of this potentially catastrophically damaging nerve agent and allowed it to get into the hands of others.”
"Obviously the Russian nerve gas can only work in the hands of special invisible and untraceable Russian agents of Putin. Or it can only be produced from molecules supplied directly from Russia."

>Also the US withdrew from the ABM treaty because Russia hadn't been complying with it.
Oh yes, "it isn't my fault, it's your fault" and other "dindu" accusations - classic US response to anything. But you see, Russia did not leave the ABM Treaty. Russia did not violate it's signed treaties. Russia did not prevent US from monitoring it's arsenals within those treaties. Russia did not place it's missiles into other countries. Russia doesn't threaten countries with complete obliteration. And so on, and so forth.

Personally, I do not worry at all - the more mistakes the US makes and more delusional it is, the easier it will be to counter it's maniacal tendencies. At least as long as there's nuclear arsenal to contain it.

Contrary to opinion of of some public idiots, MAD isn't a concept about threatening and madness, it is a formal agreement that roughly states "you do not attack and we would not attack back", which holds the exactly opposite purpose and a message of peaceful intentions through overwhelming firepower.

Reassuring the existence of MAD in the presence of such power-hungry and life-threatening power as US is a necessary measure to preserve world peace, because it is absolutely certain that the moment US will be presented with possibility to conduct unlimited strike without retaliation, it will unload all of it's nuclear and non-nuclear arsenals without any second thought. Exactly as it did during WW2.

>Mr Tillerson told reporters on Monday night that it would be “almost beyond comprehension” for a state to be behind the attack with what the UK says is a military-grade nerve agent from a family of chemical weapons called Novichok. The top US diplomat said he had spoken to Boris Johnson, the UK foreign secretary, adding that the US would put out a statement to support the British findings.

Mr. Tillerson, there's nothing to understand. At this point Britain is actually a Nazi Germany in 1939 - it poisons people with chemical weapons and uses the incidents as an excuse to attack other countries.


>Sergei Skripal attack: Salisbury poison novichok is so secret, it has never been detected before

Buuuut for some reason Britan is already aware what type of weapon it is and where it did come from.

>It was identified at Porton Down, the government laboratory near Salisbury with world-class expertise in chemical warfare. Scientists believe that it could only have been produced at a Russian state facility

Oh wait.



>The secretive UK army lab where poisons are hunted and made
>The Defence Science and Technology Laboratory - its official name - employs 3,000 scientists across a sprawling rural site and has an annual budget of £500 million (US$695 million).

It just happened so that said incident happened near world-class Defence Laboratory, which is capable of producing and studying of chemical weapons. Absolute coincidence. Nobody should have suspected anything.

I think there was pretty clear response that Russia does not give a single fuck about Britain's fabricated "explanations". Britain is always free to do whatever the fuck it wants without any explanations whatsoever, because, whatever it does, will be met with appropriate response.

Britain is being butthurt about people demanding any explanations of it's actions.
Reminder: possession and exploitation of chemical weapons is a violation of international norms.


>UK Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson urged Russia to "go away" and "shut up" as he unveiled plans for a new chemical weapons "defence centre".
>defence centre

Now fucking explain me how do you defend with chemical weapons.


>It was a historic moment largely ignored at the time by most of the world’s media and might have remained so but for the attack in Salisbury. At a ceremony last November at the headquarters of the world body responsible for the elimination of chemical weapons in The Hague, a plaque was unveiled to commemorate the destruction of the last of Russia’s stockpiles.

>The UK government case rests not just on its argument that novichok was developed in Russia, but what it says is past form, a record of Russian state-sponsored assassination of former spies.

I can anticipate Britain going absolutely ballistic over the ongoing loss of last UK-supported "moderate terrorists" in Syria, and simultaneously getting fried over complete disruption of international order, relations and communications, especially for such UN-related organization like OPCW.

>"It is no secret to anyone that the UK’s closest partner is the only state officially keeping the largest arsenals of chemical weapons in the world," he said.

>Moscow deems the the Salisbury attack as an act of terror on a Russian citizen, he said.

That's right, everybody forgot to mention that even though the UK spy was under attack, Russian citizen had also suffered from it.


By the way, there's a big suspicion that UK and US are now testing and developing new generation of chemical weapons, since they are falling behind in many other "defensive" technologies like hypersonic missiles and nuclear weapons. Covering it all up with "chemical weapons use" seemed to be a great idea beforehand, but apparently with this case UK went overboard. Now it is even highly unlikely they will be able to accuse Syria of another "use of chemical weapons" to somehow save the their Ghouta "rebels".


>The Novichoks - those thought to have been used against the Skripals - were never declared to the OPCW, and the chemicals never formed part of any control regime partly because of uncertainty about their chemical structures.

>And specific names are crucial, because the CWC allows countries to legally possess a wide range of chemicals if they are identifiable.

So, wait a second, so these chemicals did not even make to the list of chemical weapons proper, why would UK then promote this toxic substance as "chemical weapon". The answer is kind of trivial - because it was most suitable substance. Like meldonium.


>Moscow has denied any involvement in the Skripals' poisoning and demanded proof.

>Its foreign ministry insists there has never been any research conducted on Russian soil "that would bear the direct or even code name of Novichok".

>The word Novichok, said spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, was an invention of the West when a number of ex-Soviet scientists moved there in the 1990s "taking with them the technologies they were working on".


>Rink told RIA he had worked at a Soviet chemicals weapons research facility in the town of Shikhany in Russia’s Saratov Region for 27 years until the early 1990s. Novichok was not a single substance, he said, but a system of using chemical weapons and had been called ‘Novichok-5’ by the Soviet Union.

I suppose the "lethal" agent is supposed to be lethal to the victim, but for some reason investigation is yet to demonstrate this sorta lethality. At least by providing the access to information on condition of Russian citizen - Russia has been demanding it since the beginning.

>someone wasn't counting on rapid response or mixed an agent up badly
OK, how do you "rapid response" to unknown agent never used before anywhere? Do you have any idea how fast nerve agents work? If somebody wasn't counting, it is entire UK government.


It takes 2 hours for a fire-fighting team to arrive at the location of a terror attack, but a 5 minute response to "chemical attack" in some hicks is out of question. Competence, anyone?

So, by tremendous exertion of diplomatic power and common sense for several days, UK and US managed to convince some (not all) NATO or EU countries to expel some diplomats, most of them 1 or 2 at a time. I don't really see, how it's supposed to be a coordinated response to "chemical attack"?

Seriously, though, I understand when your government tries to smear this shit all over your face and rub it in, but if you are doing them a favour of performing it yourself, it is just completely nonsensical.

  Actually I remembered something closely related to this topic, namely one film with Bruce Willis I watched a very long time ago.

>The Jackal, 1997
>An imprisoned IRA fighter is freed to help stop a brutal, seemingly "faceless" assassin from completing his next job.

A chemical surprisingly similar to nerve gas was used to get rid of what seemed to be a shadow, a band of hijackers who came to investigate the van of the main antagonist. He notices that the van was "repainted" with special technique, but makes a mistake to approach it and touch the handle (already smeared with contact poison) in attempt to look inside. Then the poison kills him very quickly, although usually it takes several minutes to take effect.

Pretty minor episode, minute 4 on the video related.

>Iranian chemists identify Russian chemical warfare agents

>Published: Jan 1, 2017
So, they identified it one year prior incident?

Good, good, you know, it's been a pretty new and popular tactic to investigate incidents in backward order. First they identify the perpetrator, then they find the clues leading to the accusation, and after that they demonstrate evidence, severely redacted to fit the clues. The last part, though can be stretched in time indefinitely, or omitted entirely, of course.

I thought, you were saying.

Meanwhile Kommersant news published the "presentation" that was, as it claims, given to EU and NATO countries diplomats to convince them and support UK with expelling diplomats. While there's nothing new presented, many people noted it's complexity and attention to detail, which is slightly above average "What I did this summer" essay.



>According to the minister, Vienna’s refusal to expel Russian diplomats is not linked to possible Moscow’s countermeasures. Austria’s decision showed a principled position, which very rarely uses the tool of expelling diplomats, she said. "Especially during critical moments, channels should remain open," Kneissl stressed, noting that the US move to sever ties with Iran in 1980 did not yield any good result. "It hurts both sides," she stressed.

>The Austrian foreign minister said the UK and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) had not provided 100% of evidence of Russia’s complicity in the Skripal case. Therefore, Austria would refuse to expel Russian diplomats

The story deepens not any more. It is in it's usual track.


>"We have not identified the precise source, but we have provided the scientific info to Government who have then used a number of other sources to piece together the conclusions you have come to."

>Mr Aitkenhead added: "It is our job to provide the scientific evidence of what this particular nerve agent is, we identified that it is from this particular family and that it is a military grade, but it is not our job to say where it was manufactured."

Boris! Hey, Boris! I thought you said there are the experts who identified the source of the chemical, where are they? Oh there they are.


>British security forces believe they have found the Russian lab that made the nerve agent novichok, which was used in the attack on ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury on March 4, the Times of London reported Wednesday. Security sources told the London newspaper that while they are not 100 percent certain, they have a "high degree of confidence in the location."
>high degree of confidence
>overwhelmingly likely

But where it is? Where's the secret lab located? Apparently it is so secret that nobody can even reliably tell. It is enough to say it is in Russia.

>Britain is standing by its assessment, but the Foreign Office on Wednesday deleted a tweet from last month saying Porton Down scientists had identified the substance as "made in Russia."

Oh the jolly adventures of Russian spies in Britain, how many spectacular details appeared as of later.

1. A magical recovery.
>Out of 99% I have maybe 1% of hope,” Victoria said on Tuesday, three weeks after the attack.
>“Whatever it was has given them a very small chance of survival.

>Despite the head of Porton Down, the military research centre, saying there is no known antidote to the military grade novichok, which Theresa May’s government has said was used in the attempted murders, both now appear to be out of danger.

2. On the matter of relatives.
>A 45-year-old Russian accountant and relative of the two Russians poisoned in a nerve agent attack in Britain last month said in an interview late Thursday that she was “scared” for them, calling the British authorities untrustworthy and casting doubt on their version of events.

>The cousin of poisoned Yulia Skipral has been denied a UK visa to visit her relatives in hospital, the Home Office has confirmed.
Obviously, anyone who doubts the little crumbs of information government and press provided us so far, is a Russian spy and should not be allowed to UK.

3. Poisoned cereal.
>Was nerve agent spy poisoned by his breakfast? Police quiz daughter's friend who brought £1 bag of cereal from Russia as a gift
First a car hand, then a doorknob, then a fucking food poisoning. Amount of misinformation spread by "official" sources is staggering, it seems like "bodyguard of lies" saying is especially in effect there.

4. About cats (and guinea pigs).
>"When a vet was able to access the property, two guinea pigs had sadly died," the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) said in a statement. "A cat was also found in a distressed state and a decision was taken by a veterinary surgeon to euthanise the animal to alleviate its suffering."
UK just doesn't want to leave unwanted witnesses, are they.

PS. If you fucking think (given that you are able to think) that this can not become any more stupid, I have bad news for you - there's still 3 months left till World Cup and it is plenty of time to do something much more exciting.

Ah, the answer is simple - US is incompetent. If US would be at least tenth as competent as it is required to be a world leader they claim to be, they wouldn't stumble their entire politics over a war in little Middle East country consisting mostly of desert and oil.

There's nothing special about position of US on Russia, it is an open secret. What remains secret is the actual logical connection between actions and observations better known as "proof" and that little supplementary known as "evidence". Both of which remain to be deep state secret every time the new story comes up.

More and more senseless bullshit is coming up from UK as they try to hide the evidence of their violations of human rights and a common sense.

How much does it take to finally hack the fucking email then? 10 years maybe?

>Russian agents also tested the effectiveness of Novichok nerve agent smeared on door handles as part of a secret chemical weapons programme codenamed Foliant, it has emerged.

I wonder who is inventing all these mysterious designations for UK "investigation".

>Russia had tested whether door handles could be used to deliver nerve agents and had targeted the email accounts of Sergei and Yulia Skripal since at least 2013, according to previously classified intelligence over the Salisbury attack that has been made public.

>He also said: “During the 2000s, Russia commenced a programme to test means of delivering chemical warfare agents and to train personnel from special units in the use of these weapons. This programme subsequently included investigation of ways of delivering nerve agents, including by application to door handles.

I wonder how many door handles suffered the terrible fate at the hands of Russian GRU agents since there was no UK specialists to save them from poisoning.

And now for the serious part. It is not easy to filter the ongoing smoke screening of the media, but at least the important messages are not deleted. You can read them if you know where to look. For the time being.

>In the statement published on Wednesday, she said her father remained seriously ill and that she was still suffering from the effects of nerve agent used against them. She also addressed comments made by her cousin Viktoria in the Russian media, asking her not to contact or visit her in the UK.

>I want to stress that no one speaks for me, or for my father, but ourselves.
"Nothing to see here citizen, go away."

It is highly likely that the "victim of attack" is denied to contact any official or unofficial parties who may hold UK accountable for their actions. It is also highly likely that she is held captive and drugged due to her "medical condition", even after it is officially stated she's recovered.

After all, there's been too many media campaigns to portrait Russia as a country which regularly "violates human rights" that it became common superstition. And yet that doesn't stop anybody from US or UK to violate same rights of the same people they volunteered to "protect" - if it somehow profits them.

>The Czech counter-intelligence service BIS has worked out a report that President Milos Zeman ordered on whether the Novichok nerve agent was developed or stored in the country, BIS spokesman Ladislav Sticha told CTK on Thursday.

Apparently, every other country knows what this "top secret Russian" nerve agent is, how to produce it and store, which isn't surprize by any measure since know-how for it has been openly cited by many sources. What is interesting, though, is that, supposedly, OPCW members are not to produce or store any chemical weapons.


Actually, it looks like a post-modern type loyalty-securing strategy. If you are siding with Britain or any other major Western power, you are obliged, apparently, to believe everything they say and do everything they want, even if it is nonsensical, suicidal or physically impossible. We're not running short on bullshit anyway, there's always something, any day of the week.


>For research activities or protection you would need, for instance, five to 10 grams or so, but even in Salisbury it looks like they may have used more than that, without knowing the exact quantity, I am told it may be 50, 100 grams or so, which goes beyond research activities for protection

I wonder how it is physically possible to coat a handle with 50 grams of liquid.

>In a joint report, German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung, the weekly Die Zeit and broadcasters NDR and WDR said Germany’s BND spy agency had secured the sample of the Novichok nerve agent from a Russian scientist.

>The sample was analyzed in Sweden and the chemical formula was given to the German government and military, the report cited sources as saying. Western countries used the information to help develop countermeasures.

On the long list of countries who stole Russian chemical warfare secrets in the past, there's at least two new names now. That, of course, adds to the early claims that there's only one country capable of producing it. As history demonstrates, this is a normal situation for any imperialistic western country - if you give them a chance of reconciliation, they will plunder your technologies and resources, and use them against you.

But wait, what's this? We found the PROOFS! Russia does produce Novichok!


>“I liked this product very much and couldn’t find it anywhere in stores, so I decided to make it myself,” Yakushev said in a YouTube video posted on Thursday.

>The Novichok oil will be marketed under the motto “products for a long life,” together with a logo bearing KGB insignia.

Certainly, since real Novichok isn't actually a lethal nerve agent, you probably need to consume a lot of it in one sitting to get a minor headache.

Anyway, reading any news connected to the case has been curiously amusing since the beginning, as it reminds me of reading a badly composed fiction novel (with crucial parts of explanation censored out, of course).


>The devastating Salisbury nerve agent could be put in missiles or even hand grenades

Congratulations, Britain, you've just rediscovered chemical weapons again.


>Almost 100 Wiltshire police officers and staff have sought psychological support after the nerve agent attack in Salisbury, the Guardian can reveal.

While police officers definitely needed some treatment after being exposed to this amount of cognitive-dissonant information first-handedly and indeed it is important for them to stay operational, same can't be said about the rest of the people - journalists, diplomats, bloggers an ordinary citizens who came in contact with the same toxic fumes.
