Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking at the Russian Energy Week forum, said that the former GRU official, Sergey Skripal, poisoned in Salisbury, is a traitor to the motherland.

Pro­fess­or, Doc­tor of Polit­ic­al Sci­ences Igor Panar­in, speak­ing at the present­a­tion of the Asso­ci­ation “Inform­a­tion Spe­cial Forces” cre­ated by him, com­men­ted on Skri­p­ale pois­on­ing and called the events that fol­lowed him a unique case of using inform­a­tion weapons.

This is the first time in his­tory when an abso­lutely fake inform­a­tion­al event is pack­aged and used as a new weapon in a hybrid war against Rus­sia, becom­ing the basis for the expul­sion of dip­lo­mats and fur­ther actions,” said Igor Panar­in.

The Infos­pet­snaz Asso­ci­ation was cre­ated quite recently — on Septem­ber 7.Первый случай в истории: политолог назвал историю Скрипалей оружием гибридной войны

The main tasks of the newly formed organ­iz­a­tion its cre­at­ors call oppos­i­tion to the use of inform­a­tion tech­no­lo­gies for mil­it­ary-polit­ic­al pur­poses, con­trary to inter­na­tion­al law. Inform­a­tion­al cam­paign around the pois­on­ing of Skri­p­ale is con­sidered by the asso­ci­ation mem­bers in this con­text.
