THE ‘SPY’ He covered Salisbury attack and reported it as a hoax
TIMUR SIRAZIEV’S report on 77th Brigade, left, was broadcast on Moscow’s Channel One – widely seen as a Kremlin propaganda tool – on November 22. It described the Skripal case as ‘the best example of fake news’.
In a separate report three days later, he asserted that UK claims that Russian agents were responsible for the couple’s poisoning by Novichok ‘fall apart at the slightest contact with reality’. He also alleged that 77th Brigade had faked evidence that Russia was involved in chemical weapons attacks in Syria.
