PUTIN'S PENALTY: Six Nations Plan ‘STATE BOYCOTT’ of Russia's 2018 World Cup

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.27.18

At least six countries are planning a “state boycott” of Russia’s upcoming 2018 World Cup after a botched nerve agent attack on British soil; announcing all government officials will stay home while their nation’s athletes compete in the international soccer competition.

According to the UK’s Sun Newspaper, delegations from the United Kingdom, Poland, Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, and Japan announced their intentions to sideline government officials throughout the event.

“The communal snubs come after Theresa May’s announcement last week that Prince William and all her government ministers will refuse to play any part in the competition,” writes the Sun.

“Among the measures taken by Iceland is the temporary postponement of all high-level bilateral dialogue with Russian authorities. Consequently, Icelandic leaders will not attend the FIFA World Cup in Russia this summer,” said a statement from the Icelandic Foreign Ministry.

The international “snub” comes days after the US and European allies accused the Kremlin of using a deadly nerve agent against a former spy inside the UK; the first use of a chemical weapon on European soil since the end of World War II.

Leaders from the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, and France harshly condemned the Russian government in a scathing statement sent to the Kremlin Thursday; saying the NATO allies “abhor the attack” that rocked a quiet English town this week.

The heads of those nations -including President Trump- signed the joint declaration; slamming Russian President Vladimir Putin for using a deadly “nerve agent” to assassinate a former Russian spy on British soil and endangering the lives of hundreds.

“This use of a military-grade nerve agent, of a type developed by Russia, constitutes the first offensive use of a nerve agent in Europe since the Second World War,” said the letter. “It is an assault on UK sovereignty and any such use by a State party is a clear violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention and a breach of international law. It threatens the security of us all.”

“We share the UK assessment that there is no plausible alternative explanation, and note that Russia’s failure to address the legitimate request by the UK government further underlines its responsibility,” it adds. “We call on Russia to address all questions related to the attack in Salisbury.”

The fallout from the attack continued Wednesday when the British armed forces entered a second English village; tracking down “every molecule” of the Soviet-era nerve agent and urging local residents to “remain indoors” until authorities can determine if any health dangers persist.

SPY GAMES: Soviet Nerve Agent PUMPED Into TARGET’S CAR in UK Poison Plot

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.19.18

The soviet-era nerve agent used in Russia’s stunning assassination plot against a former spy was reportedly pumped into the target’s car through the air conditioning vents; further signaling the attack was the work of sophisticated, Kremlin-backed agents.

According to the Fox News, the deadly toxin known as ‘Novichok’ was pumped into 66-year old former Russian spy Sergei Skripal’s BMW. Skripal and his daughter were found blocks away, slumped over on a park bench.

The use of a chemical agent on European soil -the first time since the Second World War- sparked a diplomatic fallout between the UK and Russia; with Prime Minister Theresa May expelling 23 Kremlin diplomats after Vladimir Putin refused to take responsibility for the deadly attack.

The UK’s armed forces and local police are stilling scrambling to secure the quiet English town where the incident occurred; warning locals to “remain indoors” as they struggle to determine if the agent still poses a health risk to neighboring residents.

The leaders of the US, UK, France, and Germany released a scathing statement regarding the plot last week, calling the attack an “assault on UK sovereignty.”

“This use of a military-grade nerve agent, of a type developed by Russia, constitutes the first offensive use of a nerve agent in Europe since the Second World War,” said the letter. “It is an assault on UK sovereignty and any such use by a State party is a clear violation of the Chemical Weapons Convention and a breach of international law. It threatens the security of us all.”
