Putin calls for joint investigation of Skripal case
According to the head of state, talks about the incident do not result in anything positive.
Commenting on the situation regarding the “Skripal case,” Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed to stop talking about this issue, since it does not result in anything good, except for the deterioration of relations between the countries.
“We need to either carry out a joint objective and full investigation or simply stop talking about this issue because it does not result in anything other than a deterioration of relations,” he said at a meeting with heads and chief editors of international news agencies at the SPIEF.
Putin noted that initially it was announced that a military poisonous substance was used, but in case of using such a substance, a person dies, whereas the victims are alive and well.
“Nothing has happened, Skripal himself and his daughter are alive and discharged from the hospital. And his daughter looks quite decent, everyone is alive and well,” RIA Novosti quoted the president.
Major general Igor Vasiliev, Head of the Engineering Support Service of the Federal Protection Service (FPS), and lieutenant general Ulitin subordinate to him are currently in the middle of a scandal. However, it is unlikely that they lose their posts. Reportedly, the two generals are just the tip of the huge corruption iceberg in the law enforcement structures. This is not the first embezzlement episode in their careers.
