“The Kremlin wants to destroy the existing world order” – as stated in a propaganda video by the British Foreign Ministry. The Foreign Office prepared a special video presentation on “the aggression of the Russian state.”
The video features events since since November 2006. The British Foreign Ministry recalls, at that time in London, ex-FSB officer Alexander Litvinenko was poisoned. After that, British diplomats begin to confuse all kinds of details: in August 2008, Russia “demonstrated an outstanding disrespect to Georgia’s territorial integrity.” This passage distorts the events of August 2008, when Moscow had to react to aggression against South Ossetia and the killing of Russian peacekeepers by the Georgian military, who acted as guarantors of peace in the region.
March 2014 – Russia illegally annexed the Crimea, states the videoe. May 2015 – the Russian cyber attack on the German parliament. 2015 and 2016 – Russia hacked the websites of the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark.
The next accusation: 2017 – Russia intervened in the elections in Montenegro. These accusations have never been substantiated, but London utilises such “information noise” to dumb down its populace.
2017 – cyber espionage in Ukraine, when the epidemic of the Petya virus unfolded. Although experts have great suspicions that the virus was written by Ukrainian hackers, London accuses Moscow on the spread of the virus Moscow.
And, finally: 2018 – the Russian military allegedly continues to violate the airspace of a number of countries. This statement is generally groundless and irresponsible, but London does not pay any attention to such trifles.
British Prime Minister Teresa May said in her speech that if Moscow was not involved in the poisoning of former GRU colonel Sergei Skripal, Russia should respond to the charges within 24 hours. Since Moscow did not respond, but demanded that the UK comply with formal procedures – formal treatment, compliance with the protocol of the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, access to the injured Russian citizen of 33-year-old Yulia Skripal, all these formalities, according to Theresa May, only prove that Russia is at fault. Whatever happened to respectful cooperation?
London withdrew the official invitation of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov for his visit to the capital of Britain. Lavrov said that thee accusations are nonsense, and asked to see proof of the substance that Skripal was poisoned with.
23 Russian diplomats have been expelled from London in connection with the Skripal case.
