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.
