"Unscrupulous Skripal"


Sergey Skripal, as it has appeared, the "unscrupulous Russian nationalist" welcoming return of the Crimea and "hating Yeltsin's government". The British journalist who talked several hours to the former colonel of GRU after his poisoning is discouraged. As so – he worked at MI6, and feels nostalgic for Russia! However Skripal's behavior nevertheless can find an explanation. At once in several key English-language media excerpts from the book by the British journalist Mark Urban appearing next week in sale "Skripal's Business are published: life and almost death of the Russian spy". Urban met Skripal and to poisoning and after that left a coma, and interviewed him totally nearly 10 hours. This interview has also formed the book basis. And what Mark Urban has heard from Skripal and has understood about him actively wasn't pleasant to the Englishman. Urban – a star of the British journalism, people skilled and versatily educated, including in questions of war, army, investigation and Russia. He covered events of August, 1991 and October, 1993 in Moscow, and was the author of books about the Soviet army and the war in Afghanistan even earlier. He was in Sarajevo and Kosovo, in Iraq and in Afghanistan. Urban – in good sense of a word the intellectual, to journalism eight years serving in the Royal tank regiment. He tends to judgment to what the certificate – his very popular historical researches on Napoleonic wars and the British parts in World War II. Whether his book, last before Skripalyami, is called "Military domination of the West comes to the end?". So it is more interesting to it to understand and understand, than loudly to sound (the advertizing campaign of the book appearing next week – the normal phenomenon). He hasn't understood and was surprised. And surprise then has developed into disappointment. And here it is necessary to recognize that there wasn't enough life experience of Mark Urban after all to understand with what such phenomenon he deals in the person of Sergey Skripal. Urban has found for himself a way to reconcile reality with a stereotype. According to him, after five weeks in a coma Skripal has faced "serious psychological problems" and allegedly for this reason didn't wish to recognize himself as "the victim of a deadly plot of the Kremlin" (then he it seems as was overpersuaded). According to Urban, Skripal contrary to all instructions for hours sat in a garden before the central hospital Salisbury, and his attending physician, also at own risk, has begun to restore his organism (as well as to Yuli) by means of experimental novel therapy. And it – despite the name – not reading books, and a complex of medicamentous impact on sides narcotic which is applied to cancer patients. Urban very unconvincingly tries to explain these Skripal's disbelief that he was poisoned by Russians. But here, with such Makar Urban doesn't manage to explain the complex of beliefs existing at Skripal to poisoning (or that there happened to him) – and the disappointment passes into irritation. He calls Skripal "by unscrupulous (unashamed) the Russian nationalist". By words
