Yulia Skripal’s recovery testifies that she wasn’t poisoned by novichok, said the former member of the commission on biological weapons of the United Nations Igor Nikulin. He considers the incident as a planned provocation by the British special services.
Sky News reported that after recovering from poisoning in Salisbury the daughter of a British spy, can already eat and drink. The day before it became known that she had regained consciousness and could speak, her condition ‘improving rapidly’.
“Good news. But this fact indicates that most likely it wasn’t A-234 “Novichok” agent, which the British PM Theresa May was naming”, he said.
He noted that May stated on the use of the Soviet nerve gas “Novichok” but, according to the expert, “it would be absolutely impossible.”
In his opinion, “today Americans and British know much more about A-234 substance than we do – they have been tinkering with it at least for 25 years”.
“During this time, with the level of development of their science and technology, something can already be done. This is something else – an analog. And, by the way, British experts came to the conclusion that this is a kind of substance that was invented in the Soviet Union. It either has a weaker effect, or the British have picked up such an effective antidote that can be injected, and the person will survive after that,” Nikulin noted.
“This operation took place under the full control of the British special services. An ambulance crew, which knew what exactly it was necessary to inject was at the ready. There may be two versions. Either this is falsification of evidence, or this other substance is less toxic,” the expert concluded.
