"Non-Soviet Man" and buckwheat with "Rookie"

39
One “non-Soviet man” who was born and lived in a Soviet country made a good career there, but still turned out to be a British agent, he could hardly have thought that he would do so much trouble for his Homeland. Perhaps no spy who is in his right mind and solid memory, is not able to cause such damage. Moreover, the damage has been inflicted not only on Russia: this double-edged sword, even if London and its allies have not yet understood it.




In fact, the “Case of Violin” put the world on the brink of a very serious confrontation. The return to the Cold War is already being discussed at the level of the UN Secretary General. Indeed, António Guterres said that he was very alarmed by the situation, and suggested restoring the mechanisms for preventing direct conflict that had been in place during the confrontation between the USSR and the USA. The UN Secretary General recalled that when people thought the cold war was over, these mechanisms were abolished.

The question arises: did the cold war end? Was it really stopped after the collapse of the Soviet Union? At first, the NATO countries were engaged in attaining the remnants of the socialist camp (the most obvious example is Yugoslavia). At the same time, everything possible was done to prevent the restoration of the Soviet Union (in a situation where the "democratic" authorities in Russia were rapidly losing popularity). Then came the period when Washington and its allies could have been the sole masters of the world, but even then hostile actions against Russia — even if they were completely submissive and not particularly resisting — continued.

And already in 2006, and especially - in 2007, the year (after the famous “Munich speech” of President Vladimir Putin) in the West it became clear that Russia still dares to declare its interests. How many provocations and anti-Russian steps we have seen since then!

At the end of 2006, the “Litvinenko case” began to inflate. In 2008, Moscow was declared the “aggressor” who attacked “defenseless” Georgia (at the same time they were silent about the actions of Georgia itself, which committed aggression against Tskhinval). In 2012, when it became clear that Russia did not intend to allow the West to crank up the Libyan option in Syria, the accusations of “helping the dictatorial regime” fell down. In the 2014 year, after the Ukrainian coup d'état, there was no longer just a wave, but a tsunami of false accusations and anti-Russian sanctions.

And now - the case of poisoning Sergei and Julia Skripale ... Mass expulsion of diplomatic workers. It is difficult to even guess what step the West will be next. It seems that everything has already been tested, except for the “hot” war.

The question arises: why would it be all of Europe, and in addition - Canada, the United States and even distant Australia - were so concerned about the health of Skripale? Did once a massacre of people was an obstacle for the West? Those who wrote off hundreds of thousands of dead, declaring their "collateral damage" ("collateral damage"), suddenly worried about the fate of two people in a hospital. So much so that they are ready to take rather radical measures (and the mass expulsion of diplomats is far from an ordinary step!), Knowing full well that there will be a response.

Even this response, which is quite logical in such cases, is being used in further anti-Russian propaganda. Britain, the United States, France, and Ukraine that joined them made statements that Russia, it turns out, should not have sent their diplomats back. Washington claims that Russia thus isolates itself even more.

On the one hand, it turns out that Russia is isolated, seeking to reduce its influence in the world. This, of course, the negative consequences of the outbreak of scandal. There is, however, a positive moment: the influence of the West on Russia after the mirror measures taken by Moscow will also surely decrease.

The United States, in fact, does not know how to interfere in such a way as to sustain retaliatory strikes. Their ideal of waging war — be it “hot” or “cold” —is to strike at a weakened country that cannot answer. So it is possible that now high-ranking officials are quite genuinely surprised that otvetka has arrived from Russia.

And the most important and absurd - evidence of the involvement of Russia in the poisoning of Sergei and Julia Skripale really is not presented. With the exception of the six-page publication, which could be molded by the "advanced" children of the older kindergarten group. It comes to curiosities.

So, many media with reference to the British edition of The Sun lead quite a ridiculous version of the Skripale poisoning. It turns out that the warfare agent, in whose application London accuses Moscow, was added ... to buckwheat.

Indeed, many foreigners living abroad sometimes miss Russian products - and buckwheat among them. The Sun reports that a package of buckwheat with particles of poison "Novice" brought a friend of Julia Skripal. Previously, Julia herself wanted to buy buckwheat in Russia, but did not have time and asked this friend about a favor.

This, if I may say so, “version” is more like the April Fools' “duck”. But it was replicated by quite serious media, including even Euronews. Of course, one could laugh at this Hochma, but the fact of the matter is that in itself the “Skripal case” seems like a bad joke. Nevertheless, it caused such impressive consequences for the parties.

Unfortunately, there are cases when due to ridiculous accusations even military conflicts followed. How can you not remember, for example, the time of the bombing of Libya? Then the Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi was seriously accused of ... distributing Viagra to his soldiers to rape female oppositionists. It was funny to us, but to Libyans who were bombed - no ...

Russia, of course, is not Libya, and our sworn partners remember this. But the western man in the street is unstable to propaganda: that and look, the absurd version with buckwheat will be accepted there by faith. Try it, be justified! Indeed, it is good that Moscow is not Belgrade and not Tripoli. Otherwise we would have the chance to witness the war ... because of a package of buckwheat. If, of course, survived her.

    I can’t wait for the British to say that Skripal was eating buckwheat from a balalaika brought by a bear according to the old Russian tradition))) and then the whole “civilized” world should no longer have any questions about responsibility for this terrible crime lol
    This could only be done by the GRU.

        May has all the versions on poisoning the Skripals among themselves, as if on a pick, somehow they do not all the time agree! No.
        May’s gas, now buckwheat belay , which supposedly must be from Russia, poisoned Skripals. All versions are incompatible repeat .

        Ha! I propose from myself to London for free to combine both versions. Just such a version of the British in their minds will be available! Namely.
        For example. Yulia Skrimal ate “Russian” buckwheat, then farted - “relieved”, which means gas - in the park in the presence of a dad and poisoned her father and herself together with poisonous gas. At the same time, the British police also got a little smell. (Joke.) laughing

      when the British say that buckwheat Skripal ate

      Lord, well, if they are, then there really is not a person in the world who can ask them, but how did he eat it? Directly in dry form and hummed with boiling water? Or did he cook? And if you cooked, then what happened to the substance that it was supposed to be in it, shouldn't it INTENSE to begin to evaporate and join the water?

    We do not know who and what was voiced there. This is interesting.
    At first we were told that the substance "Novice" has never been. Then they said that it was, but now everything is destroyed. Then it was stated that its reserves were in Sweden, the Czech Republic, Slovakia or the United States. And the other day, they generally called the creator of the "Novice" [British Prime Minister] Teresa May. During these days, we heard that Sergey Skripal could suffer from an overdose. That he decided to commit suicide and at the same time tried to kill his daughter. That this attempted murder is revenge for the fact that Britain allegedly poisoned Ivan the Terrible. Or that it’s all for disrupting the World Cup. The British Foreign Office has already counted 24 versions of these ridiculous conjectures. I am very glad that 27 countries decided not to listen to this nonsense anymore.

    (Speech by British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, delivered by him at an Easter banquet by the Mayor of London)
    After all, he couldn’t come up with all this himself.

      I didn’t hear this speech of this "amazing" minister, but I saw his speech - like a banquet - where he talked about the fact that the British invented the laser sword (the one in the movie "Star Wars") and in this they differ from the Russians . The people sitting next to this minister smiled and even laughed, but I thought that they laughed not at his wit, but at him. Maybe I'm wrong, but with such specific English humor it turned out to be difficult for me to understand.

So I think - what spices are sold here and not sold in England? Horseradish? Mustard? Tea mushroom? Dill? A-no-no-no, dill is not a spice. Or yes? Yes, they all failed, with their guesses !!! Maybe they all jinxed them there ?!

    I must confess, plagiarism! Today on Vesti FM Dmitry Kulikov read a quote from an English book, I suspect Salisbury’s script was written off from Carroll
    The White Rabbit immediately appeared behind the King and whispered:
    “Your Majesty, something has come to light here.” Evidence. Identification document.
    - And what does it say? - the Queen revived.
    “I haven’t read it yet,” said Rabbit. “But I suspect that this is a secret note of the defendant Valet, and I suspect something is written in it!”
    “If a note, then it is certainly written,” the King said.
    - And to whom it is addressed, let me ask? - one of the jurors intervened.
    The White Rabbit turned the envelope in its paws and muttered:
    “I suspect no one.” There is no address. - He looked into the envelope and exclaimed in surprise: - The poem is written here!
    - Whose hand is written? Accused? The King asked.
    “I suspect it’s not him,” said Rabbit.
    The jury is stunned.
    “I thought so,” the King said grimly. - He did not write with his own hand.
    The jury nodded their heads knowingly.
    “I didn’t write anything,” Valet muttered, “and didn’t sign it.” Look, there is no signature there.
    - So I got it! - the King rejoiced. - He himself admitted that he did not sign. So, was afraid to subscribe, like all honest people?

    Russia is the only state that restrains the West by its mere existence. It has always been like this since the time of Ivan the Terrible. And they will never stop trying to destroy our country. Actually, the West should pray for us while Russia exists. If we suddenly for some reason suddenly we’ll disappear, the Western countries will immediately clutch each other's throats. The world is standing on us, simply because we are. And the USA infuriates it.

    Well, what about the West? Even if their own citizens laugh at the absurdity of the accusations, the authorities do not care. They continue to adhere to this stupidity and, with the media, demonize Russia. The conclusion suggests itself: in the power of the solidary countries of the West there are managers of low qualification who are not able to think independently without a hegemon and the population of these countries begins to understand this. Apart from ambition, US congressmen and senators do not have the ability to think in a modern, rapidly changing environment - they can’t understand at all that the world is becoming multipolar and cannot imagine how to act in the new conditions. The actions of the Trump administration against Russian diplomats are the complete stupidity of people accidentally in power, with such a level you can sell galoshes on the market, rather than engage in international relations. Lies, arrogance and rudeness - these are the main components of the international politics of these financial tycoons and we have nothing to expect from them.

    Found: the cat Skrypaly Musya and the FSB agent Masyanya - the same face!

    New stunning details about the Skripals affair. Buckwheat, the death of guinea pigs, the inspection of a Russian airliner - what was the basis of all these events?



    Operation Homesickness

    Officer MI-6 (British Secret Service) reported to his immediate supervisor:

    - Sir! Yesterday Sergey Skripal visited the restaurant Italian restaurant Zizzi, where our agent, dressed as a waiter, presented him with buckwheat porridge from a nearby table, allegedly from a fellow countryman.

    - What kind of stupidity is this? - grimaced the head of the special operations department.

    “You just didn't watch Mimino, sir.” This is an old Russian custom, when in a restaurant Russians sitting at adjacent tables exchange food, they call it “barter”.

    “Well, what did your barter give?”

    - Skripal burst into tears, ate all the buckwheat to the last grain. Cried and ate. Then the musicians performed "Moscow Nights". Skripal burst into tears, went outside and sat on a bench. At this moment, our agent crept up behind, whispered "Hello from Putin!" and twice poked in the face of Skipal with the Novichok dichlorvos produced by the Kazan Chemical Plant.

    - A reliable tool?

    - Our downs ...

    - Excuse me, who?

    - Specialists from the Porton Down Laboratory. They argue that only a bullet in the forehead is more reliable. Even if he survives (which is unlikely), he will be sure that the FSB tried to eliminate him.

    - What about the Skripal archive?

    - In the evening, our agents climbed into his apartment and scooped up all the papers, to the last leaf.

    “No one saw them?”

    - No one.

    Never say no one

    - No one saw, speak ?! - the colonel yelled at the captain in front of him, - what is this ?!

    The colonel shook the newspaper:

    - Julia's cousin is worried about the fate of the guinea pigs of Skripals and cats! Moscow has already demanded their extradition! Can you imagine what will happen when they speak in the basements of the Lubyanka ?! Can you imagine? !!!
