    Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has warned his country’s enemies will “be served with poison”, as a former Russian double agent and his daughter fight for life in a British hospital after exposure to a deadly nerve agent.

    The comments come as British investigators confirm a nerve agent was administered to Sergei Skripal, 66, and his 33-year-old daughter Yulia in the English town of Salisbury on Sunday in what they are treating as "attempted murder".

    The pair remain in a critical condition in intensive care, while a police officer who was first on the scene has also fallen seriously ill.

    "This case is being treated as a major incident as attempted murder by administration of a nerve agent," Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley said at a press conference.

    He added the event poses a low risk to the rest of the community.

    Putin was not addressing the poisoning of Skripal and his daughter at the time he made the explosive comments.

    He said western sanctions for Moscow's annexation of Crimea and the insurgency in eastern Ukraine were part of "illegitimate and unfair" efforts to contain Russia, but added that "we will win in the long run".

    "Those who serve us with poison will eventually swallow it and poison themselves," he continued.

    He also went on to heap praise on US President Donald Trump, describing him as a great communicator, and again addressed his nation’s stockpiling of nuclear weapons.

    In Salisbury following the poisoning, police kept residents away from an Italian restaurant and a pub in the city and cordoned off part of a business park about 14 kilometers away near the ancient stone monument of Stonehenge today.

    Detectives appealed for information from anyone who visited either the Zizzi restaurant or the Bishop's Mill pub on the day of the attack.

    Bemused residents saw their usually placid town, famed for its 13th-century Gothic cathedral, turned into the center of a criminal probe with Cold War echoes.

    With nerves still on edge, ambulances and emergency vehicles rushed to a building beside the Zizzi restaurant, which remains cordoned off.

    Witness Toni Walker said emergency services escorted two women from the building. Police and ambulance services declined to comment and it wasn't immediately clear if the incident had anything to do with the ongoing investigation.

    Home Secretary Amber Rudd chaired a meeting of the government's emergency committee, known as Cobra, to discuss the investigation, which is now in the hands of counter-terrorism police.

    Moscow said the case was being used to fuel an "anti-Russian campaign" and further strain ties with Britain.

    "What happened to Skripal has been immediately used to further incite an anti-Russian campaign in Western media," Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.

    Skripal, a former colonel in Russia's GRU military intelligence service, was convicted in 2006 of spying for Britain and imprisoned.

    He was freed in 2010 as part of a widely publicised spy swap in which the US agreed to hand over 10 members of a Russian sleeper cell found operating in America in return for four Russians convicted of spying for the West.

    The suspected poisoning prompted Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to say that if Russia were behind the incident then Britain may not participate "in the normal way" in this summer's soccer World Cup in Russia.

    You should not jump to conclusions. Such poisoning less than 2 weeks before Presidential Elections in Russia ? Cui bono ? Most likely they were poisoned by MI6 like Litvinenko. Perfidious Albion !

    https://russia-insider.com/en/polit...e-proof-who-killed-litvinenko-it-wasnt-russia



    From the interview:
    Russia has nothing to do with (the murder of Litvinenko). The case was fabricated from the beginning. Polonium was chosen as the poison because due to its production in Russia it would implicate Russia. The objective of the whole operation was to discredit president Putin and the FSB. It was done because Russia is blocking US interests around the world, especially in Syria. It was an attempt to weaken Putin’s hold on power, to destabilize Russia.”

    At least someone is thinking...

    Let us for a moment dispense with our critical thinking and blindly accept that Russia is responsible for this, how should traitors be dealt with? Should Russia take example from Pakistan??

    VLAD ATTACK
    ‘Poisoning’ of Russian spy Sergei Skripal in Salisbury was a plot by Western secret services to humiliate Vladimir Putin, Russia claims
    Former Soviet spy Yuri Lyubimov claims Sergei Skripal was attacked in a plot to disrupt President Putin's election campaign

    THE poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal was an operation by Western secret services to harm Putin’s election campaign, a former KGB agent has claimed.

    Master spy Yuri ‘Smiling Mike’ Lyubimov headed the KGB’s UK desk after being thrown out of London in the 1960s for seeking to recruit a female Foreign Office coding clerk.

    He rounded on claims that Moscow was behind the Salisbury poisoning of Skripal and his daughter Yulia, and claims Boris Johnson’s reaction to the incident shows it is a plot against Russia.

    He said: “It is an absurd to kill a person who had been swapped.

    “If he was to carry any secrets on him, he could have been killed here (in Moscow) - calmly, quietly - to inject him with a dose and no-one would have ever heard of it.

    “Secondly, and this is the main moment: who benefits from it?

    Top Soviet spy Lyubimov has hit out at allegations that the Kremlin was behind the supposed poisoning of Skripal
    “You’ve got to be an idiot to suddenly do this right before our presidential elections and in the middle of an horrendous anti-Russian campaign.”

    His claims comes after the Russian Foreign Ministry said that the alleged poisoning of Skripal was designed to "complicate UK-Russian relations."

    Lyubimov also slammed UK Foreign Secretary Johnson for vowing to sanction Russia and suggesting a boycott of this summer’s World Cup which will be held in Russia.

    Lyubimov said: “Boris Johnson’s statement confirms my thought - at a time when is it all still very unclear, already we receive a threat to boycott our football championship, and threats that ‘We’ll be taking measures'.

    “We’ve been through this thousand times.”

    Lyubimov added: “My conclusion is this: it has been done by Western secret service to splash oil on fire, to get this fire - which started for no single reason - going properly, and to help an attack on our country.”

    Asked by a TV interviewer about Vladimir Putin’s threat to punish traitor spies, he said: “I don’t know what Putin was saying.

    “He is saying a lot of things.

    "But do think logically - to carry out such an operation, what for, why?

    “And immediately Boris Johnson intervenes…

    “I think if this wasn’t done by Western secret services themselves, then it must have been some kind of Russian gang linked to some Western secret services, I don’t know which ones exactly.

    “There are a lot of Russians living in the UK.”
