Official Russian Embassy UK response to BBC “documentary” on Mayday Rescue – Vanessa Beeley

There are several points that we would like to stress in relation to the issues you are considering to include in your series.

The Unexpected Poisoning and the Unsuspecting Victims – American Herald Tribune

However, when we consider what coincidences may point to a conspiracy by those making the accusations against Russia, the evidence is considerable. In the case of the – alleged – Salisbury Poisonings, the UK government’s  covert objectives were to further its strategic aims from Syria to Crimea, and from the Russian Presidential election in March toContinue reading “The Unexpected Poisoning and the Unsuspecting Victims – American Herald Tribune”

Yet when the staff were surveyed anonymously, bullying rates were throughContinue reading “The Groupthink Pandemic – OffGuardian”
