    No worries, everyone with a modicum of brainmatter in his/her head has already made his/her well-informed decision. A guy like me, for instance. I had my doubts, but they have evaporated... Thank you for the great interview, Simonian. I have never thought RT can do/offer anything meaningful, until yesterday. A great job indeed.

    Much like the downing of MH 17 four years ago. Sanctions result anyway, despite all the obfuscation, "plausible deniability", disinformation, alternative "facts" and fake news. https://www.bbc.com/russian/features-44865909

    seriously, are they spies?

    Bellingcat and The Insider have reviewed original records from the central Russian passport and residential registration database and have identified the passport files belonging to the two suspects.

    how would they do that? this is propaganda at it's finest.

    From the Bellingcat article-

    Alexander Petrov’s passport dossier is marked with a stamp containing the instruction “Do not provide any information”. This stamp does not exist in standard civilian passport files. A source working in the Russian police force who regularly works with the central database confirmed to Bellingcat and The Insider that they have never seen such a stamp on any passport form in their career. That source surmised that this marking reserved for operatives of the state under deep cover.


    .......

    Adding additional credence to the hypothesis that Alexander Petrov’s persona is a cover identity comes from another page in his passport file, which is reserved for input of biographical data. In Mr. Petrov’s case, this page is left blank, and in addition to the same stamp “Do not provide information”, a hand-written note is added with the text “There is a letter. S.S.”. Per the same source interviewed for this story, S.S. is a common abbreviation for “sovershenno sekretno”, Russian for “top secret”.


    Well, there we go.

    All anyone has to do is steal the database, and look for stamps or S.S. All spies will be found.

    As mentioned, if we cannot even believe what the President of the US of A or his spokeswomen say, how can we believe anything else we hear on the news!

    "How sad to see the mockery of two ordinary Russian cathedral enthusiasts who flew 2,000 miles to spend an afternoon admiring a steeple in Wiltshire before catching the first flight home to their jobs in the fitness industry.

    Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, however, are not the first innocent foreign tourists to be smeared by the British state.

    The Blitz

    In 1940, the British government attempted to frame Austrian watercolourist Adolf Hitler for the aerial bombardment of London.

    “Mr Churchill has completely misrepresented the situation,” said Hermann Goering, a Berlin-based aviation expert, in an interview on Third Reich Today. “All that happened is that a few hundred decent Nazi lads wished to visit the famous Liberty department store, to buy some beautiful scatter cushions for their wives. Their friends had told them all about it. Apparently, it is 19 metres tall.

    “So they jumped straight into their planes and flew over. For some reason, however, the British switched on these horribly bright searchlights, and set off the most deafening sirens. Amid all the commotion, our decent lads became understandably flustered, and reached for their radios, to let their wives know they were coming straight home. In their panic, though, they all pressed the wrong button, and accidentally dropped several thousands tons of explosives on the buildings below.

    “They never did get to buy those scatter cushions.”

    The Vikings

    In the 8th century AD a group of Scandinavian tourists set off for a holiday in northern England.

    “It was the most terrible letdown,” said Olaf Olafssen, a keen rower, in an interview on Pillaging Today. “We were looking forward to two weeks of sunbathing – but to our surprise northern England was really cold. Obviously as Vikings we were completely unfamiliar with such inclement conditions. So we had no choice but to set fire to some monasteries for warmth.”

    The Romans

    British historians have long sought to depict the Romans as ruthless, power-mad invaders.

    “Nothing could be further from the truth,” said Claudius Caesar, an Italian sightseer, in an interview on Empire Today. “My several thousand armed friends and I went to Britain simply to see the famous 123-metre spire of Salisbury Cathedral. When we arrived, however, we were informed that the cathedral hadn’t actually been built yet. You can imagine our disappointment. Having come all that way, we decided we might as well hang around for a bit, while the local construction firm set to work. But after 367 years they still hadn’t got started, so we ended up just going home."

    Germany? He will be a new icon for the 5th column's supporters, like Khodorkovsky, Navalny, etc.

    By the way he is a Canadian citizen too... Strange that all these "moral authorities" have double citizenship...

    2 more Brits sickened in Salisbury

    https://kurier.at/politik/ausland/zw...ipal/400120064

    eating in a restaurant. the law was called in. the place has been cordoned off and investigations are going on at getting highest priority apparently. Another Novichok? if that is the case, how many (ex?) spies are there all over the place?
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....

    Seems that there's a team of Russian spies that spend their free time by poisoning everybody in Salisbury! Probably to make diversion, and they sure have direct links with VVP! Let's sanction Russia once more!

    Yes I know firsthand that if you are friends with Russians they will poison you with whatever they can. Be it cheap vodka or "somagon" from their dad at the dacha. Those dirty Russians will get you. They will even get so drunk trying to "corrupt" you that they will stuff you full of food and then try to get the neighbor girl to have sex with you. Not that you would remember anything. Oh those dirty Russian! Really America should just bomb them with nukes so all we can all get on with uncontrolled capitalism. Isn't that what life is all about? One greedy bastard suffering long enough that he can enslave the not greedy? In the end you will find that "you can't take it when you go" You will be forgotten" or remembered as a ...
    If you trust the government you obviously failed history class. " George Carlin"
