    “Britain will be made to apologize, I’m sure of it, because today official versions deviate a lot from what the prime minister and [Foreign Secretary] Boris Johnson declared in parliament. Many understand that, behind this is a large-scale provocation, for which they will to answer,” Lukashevich stated on the sidelines of the Moscow Security Conference.

    The Porton Down laboratory in Britain made a statement, declaring that the origin of Novichok was never established. Any number of countries could have produced the poison. This was a severe blow to the British government’s allegations of Russian guilt in the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal.

    The straightforward lie had been promoted by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office, a lie that British diplomats around the world had been repeating to foreign governments.

    The British foreign office quickly deleted their Twitter statement from March 22 specifying that Russia was the source country, implicating Porton Down in a statement that it never made.

    The original tweet said “Analysis by world-leading experts at the Defense Science and Technology Laboratory at Porton Down made clear that this was a military-grade Novichok nerve agent produced in Russia. ..”

    The Foreign Office tweet was part of a now interrupted thread which summarised a briefing on the UK government’s response to the Salisbury incident given by the British Ambassador to Russia, Dr Laurie Bristow, to the international diplomatic community in Moscow.

    The deleted tweet was a faithful rendition of what the ambassador said, and accurately reported. The transcript the Foreign office posted on its website, is however false.

    After they tried to delete the incriminating record, and it was publicly questioned, the Foreign Office had to admit that it deleted the tweet, but then changed the transcript of Bristow’s speech.

    The British subservient media then tried to claim that the nerve agent could only have been produced by a state actor, but as former ambassador Craig Murray pointed out during an interview with RT, a science professor from Cornell University in the US, said any of his students would be able to manufacture the chemical agent.
