The ‘Skripal poisoning’ is an equation with very many known unknowns. Can we try at least to investigate these issues? Yes, we can! Independent journalists all around the world are trying to understand this strange situation and find out the real the grounds for such diplomatic steps of Great Britain.
British mass media have been caught many times spreading misleading information and diverting public opinion. But now everything is much more serious. Practically all the members of the British government including the prime minister are doing their best trying to keep this whole charade alive.
Meanwhile, some specialists in the foreign policy issues have tried to independently and thoroughly investigate the behavior of British politicians. The results, it can be safely said, look disappointing.
So, what are the true reasons for the carefully planned British emergence of the Skripal case? The majority of them are transparent and understandable. Economic interests underlying this conflict are factors, as always.
Thus, journalists from ‘The Turkey‘ noticed there is a close link between the active information campaign against Russia on ‘the Skripal poisoning’ and the implementation of ‘the Turkish Stream’ project. The editorial board claims that the ill-fated ‘Turkish Stream’ will bring economic losses to Great Britain and the United States.
According to the experts of the BirGyun newspaper, the anti-Russian campaign after the poisoning of Skripal is an attempt to protect British interests in preserving the capital of Russian businessmen in the country. It seems that the financial amnesty to the fleeing Russian rebellious oligarchs plunged the United Kingdom into a nightmare of insecurity.
Still, the Independent went even further. Journalists hint to their readers that the officials in Britain are deliberately escalating “hysteria” around the incident with Mr. Skripal so that ordinary Britons could not assess the real consequences for the country’s economy as a result of Brexit implementation.
Al-Ahram’s experts stress that Theresa May together with her government isn’t able to solve key economic problems accumulated in the country. This situation seriously weakened the rating of the ruling party which is very low during the last quarter of 2018. The political positions of the Conservative Party have shattered. It is a logical follow-up of the economic situation. In this regard, the fabricated Skripal attack provided an opportunity for the leader of the Conservatives to restore the image of a strong, determined politician. Theresa May just took the opportunity to get things in the country under control after the 2017 parliamentary elections and also after the accusations of weakness and inability to control the party.
Of course, these economic reasons are not the only ones in this dirty British game. There are a number of political motives here too. Ironically, the frank defeat of Britain in Syria could have played quite an important role and now the United Kingdom is trying to get revenge for its miscalculations.
Whatever it was, watch the development of the situation with us. The connection between the Syrian crisis and the Skripal poisoning will be considered soon.
But, what if the UK was just tired of financing a witness protection program and decided to get rid of useless assets in this way? Skripal’s safekeeping will indeed provide no benefit. It is much better to liquidate him and blame the other side, right?
