British politician, journalist and former member of parliament George Galloway in an interview with RT said that British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson should resign because of his statements on the Skripal case.

According to Galloway, the British government, in particular Prime Minister Teresa May and Boris Johnson, “is in an extremely humiliating position. I think that Boris Johnson should be dismissed for not only joining the chorus of voices accusing Russia, but went even further, making false statements on state television,” Galloway said.

The politician drew attention to the words of the Foreign Minister that the specialist of the research laboratory in Porton Down confirmed “involvement” of Russia in the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia.

“So, according to the minister, this expert told him that the murder attempt was the work of Russia, that it could be no one else. It’s not just a mistake, it’s deception,” Galloway said.

Boris Johnson made repeated ambiguous statements.  Earlier, he compared the poisoning of the Skripals to Dostoevsky’s “Crime and Punishment.” According to him, everyone is sure of the guilt of the suspect, and their job is to extract a confession. The only problem is that Johnson never read the novel to the end – because the point is quite the opposite. As Maria Zakharova pointed out in a briefing, addressing Johnson, that the novel actually concludes the importance of a scrupulous investigation, quoting Dostoyevsky, “100 suspicions do not make proof.”  

In addition, the head of the British Foreign Ministry accused Vladimir Putin of organizing the poisoning of Skripal personally (!) Then he went on to compare the 2018 World Cup to Hitler’s 1936 Olympics – entirely forgetting that Britain in fact attended Hitler’s games, while Russia did not.

Johnson also claimed that he personally asked experts from the research center in Porton Down about the Russian origin of the substance and received a “categorical” answer about the full confidence of scientists that the substance was made in Russia. The laboratory has since denied that it ever made such a conclusion.
