SERGEI SKRIPAL, RUSSIAN SPY
Sergei Skripal is seen here in 2004, surrounded by Russian agents, after being accused of selling Russian secrets to Britain. Later, in a prisoner swap, Skripal was allowed to settle in the UK. He has now been ‘poisoned’ by a deadly chemical allegedly administered by Russian secrets agents working on behalf of the Putin government. This is clearly an attempt by the British to start throwing mud at Putin and blame him for stirring up trouble in Britain by ordering clandestine assassinations on British soil.
