The UK and its allies continue to push “The Russians did it” version in the Skripal poisoning story.
On March 4, former Russian military intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia suffered the effects of an alleged nerve agent in Salisbury, the UK. Claiming that the substance used in the attack had been a Novichok-class nerve agent developed in the Soviet Union, London and its allies rushed to accuse Russia of being involved in the incident. Moscow rejected the accusations, describing the allegations as a provocation against Russia.
However, the UK seems to be totally silent over the Novichok’s origin and Russia’s alleged involvement in the Salisbury case last days.
As the “case does not exist in the media space” stated the sposekwoman of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova on April 29.
“British journalists lapsed into silence in a day as if, let’s speak openly, there had come an order for everyone to keep silent. They have all lapsed into silence. Therefore, there is no any Skripal case in the British media. It ceased to be interesting. Nobody is looking for anyone, nobody is carrying out any investigations, nobody is demanding from the British side either photos or videos of the affected persons, or as we have been told, the affected persons.”
On Rossiya 1 television channel, Zakharova said that Russia’s Foreign Ministry would not leave without attention the investigation into the poisoning of Skripals, as Moscow has information for the public.
Meanwhile, more and more journalists and experts question London’s version of the events.
Former British ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray expressed his distrust towards the UK government. Murray suggested that London had issued a D-notice to desist from reporting on Skripal’s handler. Murray marked that the chief correspondent of the channel News 4, Alex Thomsen also had mentioned a D-notice related to Mr. Skripals M16 handler on March 12.
A D-notice is defined as a British government instruction preventing particular information from being made public in order to protect the country.
There is a D notice British government ban on all media mention for Pablo Miller, Everybody should research themselves Miller, his connection to Christopher Steele, Orbis Intelligence, the Trump Russia dossier and Sergei Skripal, Salisbury. Govt is trying to close this info down.

About the only decisive public move by the authorities has been to censor MSM via a D Notice last week from fully identifying Mr Skripal’s MI6 handler living nearby…

Whether a D-order was given or not is the last thing necessary to clarify the incident. However, it can clarify the UK’s intention to hide the truth behind the baseless accusations.
