Since the poisoning of the former GRU officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia has been more than three months. During this time, the world community witnessed a drama worthy of Hollywood: a diplomatic war with Russia, the threat of tougher sanctions, groundless accusations of the production and use of chemical weapons, a miraculous "resurrection" of the main victims in the "Skripal's case". And, as we see, the directors of this production do not want to stop there. Indeed, the Salisbury incident was another attempt to conduct an indicative trial against Russia.

So, on the eve of the official US State Department spokesman Heather Nauert stated that the Russian Defense Ministry allegedly falsely claims that US troops and the "Free Syrian Army" (FSA) are preparing to stage an attack using chemical weapons in Syria, while Russia "applied the substance nervously -paralytic action in Salisbury and prevents the involvement of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in responsibility for the multiple hematacs in Syria".

However, the Russian embassy in the United States quickly reacted to accusations of using nerve gas "Novichok" against former Colonel GRU Sergey Skripal and Moscow's support for chemical weapons in Syria.

"Even the State Department can not deny that provocations using chemical weapons in Syria are carried out according to the same scenario. Let me remind you of the loud exposure of the staged chemical attack in the Duma".

Unfortunately, such statements by representatives of state institutions of the West and even the heads of these states are not uncommon in contemporary international realities. To accuse Russia of "the next evil deeds" it is enough for them to use the stamps of the times of the Cold War, not backed up by any material evidence. Western political technologists skilfully "shuffle" cards in a game against Russia, in which one incident can surprisingly be associated with another. Such cobwebs, in their opinion, should testify to the global scale of Moscow's destructive activity and its plans to fight its ideological enemies. Therefore, it is not surprising that the attempted poisoning of the former GRU officer was the occasion for a further, no less unproven number of charges...
