Media: Skripal poisoned invalid mother-in-law Julia

Sensational version of the poisoning of ex-GRU officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia appeared in Russian media on Wednesday afternoon. It would seem that everything is already sure political underpinnings of this high-profile case (and here in the same in Britain found dead ally of Boris Berezovsky). Poisoning is clearly the handiwork of intelligence services. In London that Russian. But suddenly one of the strongholds of inserted consumer version of the crime.

Telegram-channel Mash reported that his staff managed to get in touch with some relatives of the family Skripal. And they allegedly said that the poisoning of former spy and his 33-year-old daughter can stand them unhappy woman. As Mash says, the officials said that the purpose of the poison attack was just Julia, father of hurt “for the company”, and not Vice versa.


“The family of Sergei Skripal, said in an interview that the attack on him and his daughter can be “indignant woman”. Julia Skripal soon going to get married, but the groom’s mother was deeply against marriage”, – stated in the message channel.

Mash also quotes his unnamed interlocutor:

“Mom, a high – ranking employee of one of the structures. Julia is the daughter of a traitor”.

There is such a quote, its author is the niece Victoria Skripal: “One of the agencies alleged that he had contacted the police for surveillance. I don’t know, we have no such information. Everything was quiet, calm. If something was, he would surely have told us”.

By the way, earlier, the British media published reports of witnesses that shortly before the discovery of Yulia and Sergei Skripal unconscious nearby saw a strange woman in the mask.

While it remains unclear whether media appearance by mysterious relatives Skrobala intentional stuffing with the goal to divert attention and to remove possible liability from intelligence or interpersonal relationships are really able to take such a radical form.
