Yulia Skripal Gives First Interview After Alleged Poisoning

Yulia speaks to Reuters in her first media appearance since being released from a hospital in March.

Yulia Skripal, who has claimed to have been poisoned by Russia, together with her father Sergei Skripal, gave an interview to Reuters, according to a video released by the agency on Wednesday.

According to the news agency, Yulia expressed gratitude to the Russian Embassy in the UK, which had offered her assistance, but explained that she "doesn't wish to avail herself of their services."

Looks like in their sloppiness the media have been publishing the photographs of two different persons all along.

I think it is the same girl!

She has just lost some weight but the structure of her face, eyebrows, nose, mouth etc. are fundamentally the same.

Quoting from the comments section:

I've seen a lot of people complaining about the pre-written statement, but Yulia is just a regular person and has no experience with public speaking - of course the speech is going to be learned by heart and rehearsed, there's nothing wrong with that. However, when you actually hear it in Russian, it sounds very unnatural, and it's not the formal style of the message which is at fault - it's the vocabulary and the syntax she uses. Her speech can be easily translated on the fly from Russian to English, without even hearing the end of the sentence, which is ridiculous! Russian and English languages do not align that way, they have entirely different structures, word order and so on. There's no doubt that the speech was written in English first and that makes me question things.

My wife understands and speaks some Russian and she said the same thing. Also, the Russians like the Poles, refer to first cousins as 'sister' which makes her phone call to Viktoria more likely to be authentic as she used the sister expression.

If you start from the point that Russia was absolutely and without doubt responsible for the first attack and attach this one to that narrative .......... what is there to say.

Until this happened I was convinced that if we ever did find out what really happened it would turn out to be shell fish poisoning,but now the evidence changes ........ so the concept of who did it (which can only be speculative) changes also.

I think this makes it even more likely that the Russians had nothing to do with either event! Although you would not think that way if you relied on the MSM. They have it all solved and ..... Russian assassins threw away the syringe they used on the Skripals, These two picked up the syringe, that had been lying out in the weather for 4 months, and sprayed the contents ..... which was military grade Novichok, only made by the USSR ....... all over themselves. This stuff we know is so strong it kills in seconds but like the Skripals, it didn't kill, it made them ill.

The woman has died ..... apparently from a heart attack, her partner is still in intensive care. According to the press ..... by a friend who was with them at the time (who appears to have suffered no ill effects from his exposure) ...... both were down-and-out alcoholics and/or drug users. But he manages to live in a brand new house although he was unemployed, as was she. Very strange story almost unbelievable?

My guess. IMO: I would not be surprised if it was a rogue employee at Porton Down, with access to samples of this stuff, maybe a lab technician, he/she has grudge or an axe to grind about something. You get the 'odd-balls' that nobody takes a lot of notice of, in all large organisations ...... like Paediatric nurses in the NHS, pilots for Malaysian Airlines to Spies/whistler blowers in MI6. They are rarely noticed until after the event that exposes them. If that is so ..... we will certainly never know and these false stories will continue ad infinitum! Just think how embarrassing it would be for the UK Government to admit anything else after all the accusations they have made, without a shred of credible evidence, against Russia and Putin? :roll:
