To date, we can safely consider the following facts as undeniable:
1. The so-called Skripal poisoning is invariably an anti-Russian political provocation, organized by the special services of the United Kingdom and the United States.
This, in particular, indicates the following.
British Prime Minister Teresa May, just one day after the incident, announced the involvement of the authorities of the Russian Federation. What can be explained only by its political interest in precisely this definition of "guilty". Nothing of the kind could have sounded, in principle, under the condition of London's objective and conscientious attitude to the investigation of this incident within the specified time limits. In such a short time it is absolutely impossible to carry out all the necessary amount of investigative measures and collect evidence to advance such a serious accusation against a foreign state.
And this is not to mention the complete absurdity and glaring illogicality of such an act on the part of the Russian authorities ten days before the election of the president of the country, which by definition requires the complete elimination of such incidents. It is quite obvious that the British government was not at all interested in the real results of the investigation and the reasons for the alleged "severe poisoning" of the ex-colonel and his daughter. Which now "are in a coma" precisely because. what the British political elite says for them.
Such an attitude of official London to this situation can have only one explanation - they are not interested in establishing the truth, because they already know it. And the incident itself interests them only as an emergency reason for bringing charges against Russia.
This is confirmed by the categorical refusal of Great Britain to cooperate with the authorities of the Russian Federation in investigating this “attempt”. That, firstly, completely contradicts the international practice existing in such cases, and, secondly, is a direct indication that the British authorities have something to hide. And this in itself puts an end to the version of their conscientious and unbiased attitude to this event.
The fact that this was a joint operation of the Anglo-Saxon special services (US and UK) is indicated by practically the same early reaction of Washington. Where exactly the same as Teresa May, without even pretending to wait for the results of the investigation, they hurried to announce the “undoubted guilt” of Russia.
Thus, there is a fact that it was sewn with white threads and rather crudely worked out (due to the obvious lack of time and a certain loss of qualification of British James bonds as a basis, obviously, a stencilled plot was taken with “bloody Putin” poisoning ”by the Litvinenko regime fighter), but no less, a clearly planned, gradually implemented and politically motivated provocation, fully developed by Western intelligence services in the interests of the most aggressive and anti-Russian circles in the state and “shadow” leadership Anglo-Saxons kih powers.
2. This provocation has both short-term and long-term political and geopolitical goals. First of all, it is designed to maintain and swell up anti-Russian psychosis in Western countries, aimed at increasing the manageability of the population of these countries in an atmosphere of general fear of the "growing Russian threat." And a significant improvement in the conditions for raising the degree of militaristic hysteria and the pre-war psychological mobilization of Western societies.
The next attempt to create in the person of Russia the image of the “enemy of all mankind” is explained, firstly, by the fact that this is the traditional technology of the West that it applies to all countries unfriendly to it. Secondly, the attempts of Western propaganda to form such an image on the material of Ukrainian events, or the conflict in Syria, have completely failed. The population of the Euro-Atlantic region, driven to despair by the bloody terrorist attacks at home, does not see anything particularly bad in the fact that Putin is cracking down on terrorists far from Europe. As for Ukraine, even long-term, fierce psychological treatment did not prompt the western layman to consider the problems of this part historical Russia by their own.
As for the “Case of Violin” and the intentions already announced within its framework of declaring Russia “the sponsor of world terrorism”, it gives a good reason to play on the mass fear of terror and identify the Russian Federation with such.
The measure of suggestibility of the population of Western countries, which for decades has been processed by practically one-dimensional Western propaganda, in conditions of greatly relaxing citizens' relative material well-being, is close to absolute.
A vivid illustration is the scandalous case in the American town of Elizabeth City in North Carolina. The local municipal council refused to install a monument donated to the city by the Russian Ministry of Defense to the monument to Soviet pilots who died during the Second World War and were trained at the local marine airbase aviation.
The motivations at the same time were voiced so frankly wild that they leave no doubt - the average Western man in the street is quite ready even for uncritical perception "news"That the Russians had entered into a conspiracy with the Martians to send the entire US population to the Martian meat factory.
“One of the city council members said that the monument could be a Trojan horse. Johnny Walton fears that the Russians may put something in it, which may be caused remotely to destroy the Internet or the electrical network. “Russia, as you know, is now hacking, they are hacking experts, and although we have the largest Coast Guard base, it will not help anyone, because our computers will lie down because Russia controls our mouse,” Walton said at a committee meeting.

In such cases it is customary to say: comments are unnecessary!
3. The strategic goal of this special action, obviously, was not the presidential elections in Russia. Firstly, because by the terms of its beginning, it was clearly late, if there was an impact on the electoral process in Russia. In addition, the West is certainly aware that this kind of provocation is completely counterproductive in terms of undermining Russia's internal stability, since it will inevitably provoke a reaction of the majority of Russians that is negative for the West itself. Which, in fact, happened. There can be no doubt that the willingness of Russian voters to vote for Vladimir Putin, that is, for the strength and sovereignty of Russia, against the backdrop of this Anglo-Saxon provocation, has become even more unambiguous.
Thus, it can be stated that this special operation, which, in turn, looks like an integral part of a comprehensive plan to increase pressure on Russia, has other long-term tasks. In this regard, it is worth noting the fact that the scenario with the “Skriple poisoning” was activated only a few days after the historic speech by Russian President Vladimir Putin to the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation, in which he presented to the whole world extremely convincing evidence of the West’s inability to subordinate Russia to his will by force weapons.
Putin’s speech was for the West, very likely, a sort of final point for his past geopolitical strategy, based mainly on the military-political environment and the “squeezing” of Russia. And a turning point for the beginning of its new strategic course, aimed at achieving the same goal - the complete solution of the "Russian problem", by several other means.
Convinced that plans to outplay Russia in the military-strategic field in the near future, doomed to failure, the West seems intent now to proceed to the "right siege" of this East Slavic fortress, with the aim of its gradual depletion and, ultimately, coercion to complete military-political capitulation.
Apparently, the Russian economy will become the main target of this “new policy” of the West. Which, as they expect, ultimately, is simply bound to collapse under the pressure of Western sanctions and growing restrictions on the export of Russian energy resources. It is precisely the creation of maximum obstacles for this export that is now becoming the basic element of this strategy.
The United States and Great Britain as Western countries, least dependent on Russian energy supplies, play the most active role in this scenario.
Washington and London are very likely to proceed from the assumption that Russian-Ukrainian gas cooperation should cease in the 2019 year due to the expiration of the current agreement, as well as the apparent impossibility of its continuation due to the nomination by Kiev, at the instigation of the same West for Russia, the predatory conditions of such cooperation. Supported, moreover, by the verdicts of the “international justice” wholly controlled by the West. At the same time, the calculation is being made on the complete paralysis of alternative routes of Russian energy supplies to Europe, bypassing Ukraine and Poland. The pressure for this purpose on the European countries that are extremely interested in such supplies and, above all, Germany, is growing almost every day. However, it is very difficult for the Anglo-Saxons to impose on Continental Europe such a line of conduct in relations with Russia, which is extremely unprofitable for Europe itself and even dangerous.
It is with the aim of creating favorable conditions for solving this unnatural task that the maximum anti-Russian psychosis is required, which is now intensely pumped by London and Washington in all possible ways. Not least, and with the help of a consciously brought up schizophrenic level, a completely fabricated story with Skripal's “poisoning”.
And it is not at all accidental that, in the atmosphere of this psychosis, the European Union countries are forced, one after another, to agree to the mass expulsion of Russian diplomats, despite the fact that even formally in their own relations with Moscow there is absolutely no reason for this. It is quite obvious that in this way they want to solve the main task - under the monstrous pressure of agitated propaganda of "public opinion" to force the German authorities to finally abandon gas cooperation with Russia. What, ultimately, should, according to their plan, completely paralyze the energy exports of the Russian Federation to Europe.
In the West, they definitely expect that Russia, which has already lost a quarter of its GDP in the last three years at another regular and politically motivated dumping of world energy prices, will not withstand another knockout strike and will have to throw a white flag and accept Western terms of capitulation.
In the very same case, if this does not happen, it will be possible to use the “Plan B” against the Russian Federation, the prerequisites for which by that time are already fully matured. The main point of which will be that Europe, deprived of its normal energy supply, will begin to experience increasingly serious economic difficulties and the social upheavals that accompany them. That will inevitably lead to the radicalization of local political regimes and to the growing demand for the most extreme means of solving the problems encountered. Under these conditions, even a military confrontation with Russia will cease to be perceived in Europe as it is perceived today - as something completely meaningless and unnecessary. Europeans will be strongly recommended through all of the same omnipotent propaganda: “Go to the East and take there everything you need!”
Meanwhile, it is precisely the provocation of a major intra-European military confrontation that has been the trump card of Anglo-Saxon geopolitics for over a hundred years now. And there is no reason to believe that today the Anglo-Saxons have fewer motives for this than they did in the tenth and thirties of the twentieth century. Rather, it is even more, since today the world “Anglo-Saxony” is definitely on the descending part of its historical trajectory and more than ever needs the most potent means to extend its clearly protracted “golden age”.
