    Russian spy: Sergei Skripal collapsed alongside daughter.

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 06 Mar 2018, 11:55 am

    The woman found slumped on a shopping centre bench alongside a former Russian agent convicted of spying for Britain is his daughter, it has emerged.

    Yulia Skripal, in her 30s, and father Sergei, 66, are critically ill in hospital after being found unconscious in Salisbury, Wiltshire, on Sunday.

    UK police are trying to find out what "unknown substance" harmed the pair.

    It has also emerged that two police officers dealing with the incident were treated for "minor symptoms".

    We are all aware that the Russians are very willing to murder such "spies" by direct poison after another Russian, Alexander Litvinenko, was murdered using radioactive Polonium-210, which was put into his tea in a sushi restaurant.

    The latest about this is that it has been discovered that a "nerve agent" was used to try to kill these people. Sadly, a copper was infected too and is also very poorly in hospital.

    Some are suggesting that this was a Russian plot, but that has still to be proved.

    It is now suspected that around a dozen other people were effected by this careless act.

    It was a bit like a bomb, in this respect, as both bombs and nerve gas usage are not particular in who they kill.

    The rogue nations that have already used nerve-agent gasses indiscriminately are, North Korea, Iran, Syria, and Iraq, ( under Saddam Hussein ).

    Of course, the use of chemical weapons has been outlawed by the UN, but they still continue to be stockpiled and used by a few rogue nations.

    For nerve gases to be used in public in the UK the authorities must be sleeping on the job.

    Now I see that they have closed the restaurant that these people were seen in and everybody that has had anything to do with this place has been told to immediately wash all clothing.

    This is really scary stuff.

    It certainly is Angie.

    When we think that nerve gasses are VERY hard and dangerous to make I am surprised how the people do did this acquired it.

    I am sure that anybody that lives close to Salisbury - where the nerve agent was released - will be feeling a bit nervous as to how far that poison has spread.

    It will be a worry for many.

    I am pretty sure it was closely delivered; hence the minimal number of folk actually affected. I'm keeping my eyes on the local news about it, but if I wanted to go to Salisbury, I wouldn't be put off by this.

    Maybe you noticed the latest news on this ?

    It said that the experts now think that Skripal and his daughter may have had contact with the nerve agent from their front door.

    I wonder where this story will jump to next ?

    Interesting.

    'Treating' the front door (local news said it was the door handle) would tend to limit the spread, if the person went in and died there, it would probably not be noticed for days, or even weeks, giving the chemical agent time to dissipate, (I assume it would render itself inert within a certain length of time), although this is just my assumption.

    They probably didn't consider that the victims may go out again and succumb in a public place. Careless really, or maybe the dose was insufficient to kill quickly.

    Yes, the use of a nerve agent to try to kill somebody, anybody, was a totally reckless thing to do. Anybody could have touched that handle.

    This is the main reason why so many western countries are expelling Russian diplomats.

    Mind you, I don't think that Putin is going to give a damn about that.

    Yes, that is good news, but I wonder how badly she will be marked by that vicious poison later in life.
