Skripal poisoning and Syria bombing a “Big Anglo-Saxon provocation” and part of the same construct. [—] Three Western nations took the decision to attack Syria on the basis of “YouTube clips. Douma incident was a fake, involved a Russophobe state: Great Britain, or “Little Britain”. [—] “These two British provocations”  [the Skripal poisoning and the “fake” chemical attack in Douma]  makes it clear that this is “one grand devious design”.

On April 10 Russia vetoed a U.S.-drafted U.N. Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain blame for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Joint Investigative Mechanism found Syria’s Government responsible for last year’s attack in Khan Shaykhun.

In September 2017, the UN Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic summarized 33 separate incidents where it had found use of chemical weapons. Since then there have been several additional suspected chemical attacks. Between March 2013 and March 2017, the Commission documented 25 incidents of chemical weapons use in the Syrian Arab Republic, of which 20 were proven to have been perpetrated by government forces and used primarily against civilians.

The OPCW was unable to establish the origin of the nerve agent used in the Skripal attack

The OPCW was unable to establish the origin of the nerve agent used to poison the former Russian double agent and his daughter in the English town of Salisbury on March 4.


The OPCW report clearly states that “the results of analysis by the OPCW designated laboratories of environmental and biomedical samples collected by the OPCW team confirm the findings of the United
Kingdom relating to the identity of the toxic chemical that was used in Salisbury and severely injured three people."

The OPCW report does not name the nerve agent directly; its name and chemical structure were sent in a classified report to OPCW member states. www.opcw.org/fileadmin/OPCW/S_series/2018/en/s-1612-2018_e_.pdf,

Board of directors of Finnish energy company Fortum: Chairman is the Minister of Defence, and one of the members represents Finnish political police

The West has started a “Cold War” to destroy Russia and conducts it systematically and  consistently. [—]

As a proof of the meaning the Finnish leadership gives to Fortum and of the potential direction of its work serves the fact that the chairman of the board of directors of Fortum is, according to media, not the minister of economy and not even the prime minister, but the defence minister of Finland. Representative of Finnish political police is a member of this board.
