A police officer from the Skripals case blabbed about Navalny's “poisoning”

Policeman Nick Bailey, who allegedly received a dose of Novichok in Salisbury in 2018, wrote too much on the social network about the situation with the Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny and awkwardly decided to justify himself immediately, saying that his emotions had taken over.

It all started with the fact that British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, excited by yesterday's statement from Berlin, demanded an explanation from Moscow about the incident with an ardent critic of the Kremlin. The Englishman posted his speech on Twitter. A policeman reacted to him.

“I have so much to say about this tweet. But I can't and I won't,” Bailey wrote back.

I have so much that I want to say about this tweet. But I can’t, and I won’t. https://t.co/1ZzDzl5WKa

This message caused a lot of user questions. For some reason, some suggested that the United Kingdom's special services had a hand in the “poisoning” of Navalny. Therefore, the chatterbox had to ridiculously disown Russian history.

In the next tweet, Bailey wrote that he was a simple police officer and did not have access to classified information about the work of the intelligence services of Britain, Russia, as well as information about the investigation of the attack in 2018 or “a recent attack with a nerve agent.” The man explained his previous comment by the fact that “emotions prevailed” and he just wanted to express himself on the merits of the topic.

“I am a victim and completely belong to myself. Looking back, I regret that I wrote such an ambiguous tweet. Emotions got the better of me last night, and I wanted to say something but didn’t say anything,” the policeman justified.

Earlier today it became known that the United States is going to work out with its allies measures of punishment for Russia for the “poisoning” of Navalny. We are talking about financial sanctions.
