In what appears to be the latest escalation in the UK government’s campaign to blame Russia for the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal, his daughter Yulia Skripal and three other seemingly random Britons (one of whom succumbed to the deadly Novichok nerve agent used in the attacks), British prosecutors are saying they have “sufficient evidence” to charge Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, both Russian nationals, with conspiracy to murder Skripal, as well as the attempted murder of his daughter and police detective Nick Bailey, according to Reuters.
The news comes nearly two months after investigators said they had identified the suspected perpetrators of the Novichok attack by crossing referencing CCTV feeds with records of people who entered the country around that time.

In the wake of downing of the Russian Su-24 bomber jet by Turkish Air Force president Putin claimed that Ankara appears to be an accomplice of terrorists, as it is purchasing oil in regions of Syria captured by extremists, and he is on solid ground in saying so, the German newspaper Bild reported.
Turkey has turned into a major consumer of oil from the so-called Islamic State extremist group, the author of the article continued. Turkish businessmen sign deals on oil purchases with jihadists, allowing them to get revenues of $10 million weekly.
The Kremlin long time ago obtained information that oil from ISIL-seized territories in Syria is being transferred to Turkey. And the fact that Russian Aerospace Forces started to conduct more attacks against ISIL infrastructure couldn’t be overlooked by Ankara.
According to Bild, Turkish policies regarding jihadists are not quite transparent: although Ankara provided Americans with opportunities to use the country’s airbase for launching attacks against ISIL positions, Erdogan allows terrorists sneaking into Syria to go through Turkey without hindrance.
President Vladimir Putin says he’s shared Russian intelligence data on Islamic State financing with his G20 colleagues: the terrorists appear to be financed from 40 countries, including some G20 member states.
During the summit, “I provided examples based on our data on the financing of different Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) units by private individuals. This money, as we have established, comes from 40 countries and, there are some of the G20 members among them,” Putin told the journalists.
Putin also spoke of the urgent need to curb the illegal oil trade by IS.
“I’ve shown our colleagues photos taken from space and from aircraft which clearly demonstrate the scale of the illegal trade in oil and petroleum products,” he said.
“The motorcade of refueling vehicles stretched for dozens of kilometers, so that from a height of 4,000 to 5,000 meters they stretch beyond the horizon,” Putin added, comparing the convoy to gas and oil pipeline systems.

It was only two years ago that western governments were looking for excuses to go in and invade Syria in order to topple the former eye doctor and now President, Bashar al-Assad.
Obama sought congress approval to go in and take out Syrian army forces but was rejected. Whilst the UK parliament voted 285 to 272 not to attack Syria as Prime Minister David Cameron had wanted to do.
With no luck in removing the Syrian government an offshoot of al Qaeda was created called ISIS and moved into Syria to fight against Assad. To which we now know that ISIS was created as a proxy army to do the bidding for where the west was unable to go in overtly.
US General Wesley Clark exposed the plan to attack 7 countries in 5 years in an effort to steal oil and resources, yet somehow this is not referenced in the mainstream media.
Today we are seeing the effects of this covert war spill into other areas with the current refugee crisis.
The mainstream media is failing to inform people of how these refugees where created (by foreign intervention mainly the US bombing their country and its infrastructure), and is even trying to pin the blame on Russia for the refugee crisis and claiming Assad is helping ISIS, when the exact opposite is true.

Tony Blair appeared at the St Petersburg Economic Forum in Russian President Vladimir Putin’s hometown on Friday, where the former UK prime minister advised business leaders on ways they could improve their performance.
His appearance on the panel came just hours after he was offered a job by the Ukrainian government.
Blair advised Russian businessmen on how they could learn from his delivery unit, which he initially rolled out in Downing Street to help speed up hospital reforms. He did not touch on the economic impact of Western sanctions on Russia.

The Russian newspaper ‘Komsomolskaya Pravda’ decided to conduct an impromptu poll in response to a similar survey conducted by an American blogger in San Diego.
American journalist Mark Dice decided to conduct a poll asking Americans to sign a petition to preemptively nuke Russia. The journalist, who is the best-selling author of ‘Inside the Illuminati’ and frequent guest on History Channel’s ‘Ancient Aliens’, conducted the poll on the beaches of Southern California.
He told people that if they sign, they show support of an alleged plan by US President Barack Obama on a preemptive nuclear strike on Russia.
Last week, former NSA intelligence analyst John Schindler posted a rather disturbing tweet. With a statement that one could only assume to be a reference towards Russia, Schindler wrote “Said a senior NATO (non-US) GOFO to me today: ‘We’ll probably be at war this summer. If we’re lucky it won’t be nuclear.’ Let that sink in.”
So who is John Schindler? As a ten-year veteran of the NSA; he was in the news a bit more when Snowden was making frequent headlines. He used to be a professor at the U.S. Naval War College, and is currently a frequent contributor to Business Insider. According to his biography on Business Insider, he used to teach classes on security, strategy, intelligence, and terrorism, and he has “collaborated closely with other government agencies who would probably prefer he didn’t mention them.” It’s safe to say that Schindler probably brushes shoulders with high-ranking officials from time to time, so his tweet should be taken seriously.
