A US marine infiltrated the ‘guarimberos’ (a popular term for the participants on ‘guarimbas’ or barricades). He was leading the violent incidents on the Colombia-Venezuela border and teaching subversive techniques to the ‘guarimberos’ hired by opposition deputy José Manuel Olivares. This proves that the Venezuelan right, Colombian president Iván Duque and the US have plans to promote violence in the country.
Skripal poisoning is a well-planned operation by the British intelligence. UK knew that some Russians are coming to Salisbury for “negotiations” and used this opportunity to accuse Moscow of poisoning.
UK police and intelligence investigations have produced hard evidence which is sufficient to charge two Russian nationals for the attack on the Skripals. These two individuals have been established as officers of the Russian Military Intelligence, GRU. More UK public documents/statements on the case here and here.
The EU Member States support the UK findings, and decided unanimously to introduce sanctions against the GRU officers responsible and their commanding officers.
