Former British Diplomat Craig Murray Debunks Russia Nerve Agent Allegations

March 15, 2018 (EIRNS)—Former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray has debunked the allegations about a Russian poison nerve agent on his website, using sources he says he cannot disclose now. However, he charges that “The Novichok Story Is Indeed Another Iraqi WMD Scam,” as the headline of his blog reads.

Basically, the U.K. government is claiming that former Russian GRU turned MI6 double agent Sergei Skripal was killed by “Novichok,” a substance no one has ever seen and whose existence is even doubted, so that if indeed it was used, this would be the first time, and British experts wouldn’t be able to identify it. Furthermore, they should have delivered a sample to the Organization for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), of which the U.K. is member. [Russia has demanded the British produce samples to the OPCW for international scrutiny only to have such requests be flatly rejected with insults 'Russia should go away and shut up' from the British Defense Minister. The alternative media has also caught on to the strange coincidence that 'novichok' produced by a rogue Russian scientist was featured in the plot of an Anglo-American action series Strike Back in episodes that aired in late 2017 and in early 2018 in the UK and USA respectively -- JWS]

Much like the Kremlin, Astana is also keen to reduce corruption in state contracting and cement its pivotal status in the One Belt One Road through use of the blockchain technology.
