RUSSIA (OBSERVATORY) – The RF Embassy is wondering why only three people were injured in Salisbury, if, according to the British side, several places were immediately contaminated, and the poison does not evaporate.
Earlier, the British Ministry for the Environment, Food and Agriculture of the UK stated that the nerve agent used in the poisoning in Salisbury was in a “liquid state”. Also, the ministry reported that the city is completing the cleaning of places where traces of poisonous substances were found after the accident with an ex-GRU employee Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia, who worked for the British special services.
“We carefully studied the statement of the Ministry for the Environment, Food and Agriculture, which says that the nine allegedly contaminated sites in Salisbury have been disinfected, and we could not help but notice that the list of such places has expanded considerably. In addition to the previously mentioned Zizzi restaurant, Mill pub, benches, where Sergey and Julia Skripal were unconscious and, in fact, the very house of Sergei Skripal, it is also about ambulance stations, as well as the house of police officer Nick Bailey, ” granted in the case of the embassy.
“In this regard, we have a natural question: why, to this day, none of the Salisbury residents, except for the three victims, had symptoms of poisoning with nerve agents, which, as it turns out, all this time was in public places and which, according to British experts, “does not evaporate” and “does not disappear over time,” and for its removal requires disinfection with the help of special chemicals? If these statements are true, it is completely incomprehensible how Nick Bailey, who, after discharge from the hospital returned to his own house, was not subjected to repeated exposure to poisonous substances,” noted the official.
He also recalled that the British authorities assured and continue to assure the Salisbury residents that “the risk of infection is minimal.”
Relations between Russia and Britain sharply deteriorated against the backdrop of the incident in the British Salisbury, where ex-colonel of the GRU reserve, Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yuliya, who worked for the British special services were poisoned. The British side claims that the Russian state is involved in the poisoning of the Violins by the nerve agent A234. Russia categorically denies this.
