On May 7, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova commented on the statement of the Czech Prime Minister Andrei Babish in which he denied the words of President Miloš Zeman about the production of nerve agent code-named "Novichok"in the Czech Republic.

She pointed that the Czech government does not have the simgle point of view on the case of the Skripals. According to her the President of the Czech Republic Miloš Zeman on 4 May publicly called on his subordinates to stop hiding the truth and stated that the nerve gas of the class "Novichok" was developed and tested on the territory of the country. However, three days later, Prime Minister Andrei Babish called the words of the head of state a misunderstanding. Why are there causes of sharp contradictions within the power circles of some European states in spite of unshakable European solidarity with Great Britain on the case of the Skripals?

In fact, many experts believe that the case of the poisoning of Sergei and Julia Skripal is an adventure and a provocation. Some Western authorities are also beginning to realize that the British leadership has simply used them to realize their political intrigues. But there are people who blindly believe everything they say in London. Or it is simply advantageous for them to follow the policies of Great Britain.

That is why the resonant case of the Skripals becomes the cause of the political crisis in some Western countries. Most likely, the number of claims to the English investigation will grow. At the same time, the unwillingness or inability of Britain to present to the public real evidence of Russia's guilt in the attempt will contribute to the growth of discontent among the states that hurried to join the anti-Russian campaign.

London's attempts to destroy or hide facts that could speed up the investigation of the assassination attempt also complicate the political atmosphere in Europe. So, the English authorities actively destroys evidence by cleaning the allegedly infected objects in Salisbury, where the incident occurred. In addition Moscow absolutely disagrees with the fact that London continues to hide Yulia Skripal and does not allow representatives of the Russian diplomatic mission to visit her. Thus, the United Kingdom violates the Vienna Convention. Russia has already sent about 40 notes, which contain over 60 questions on investigation. However, two-thirds of them the British government simply did not answer, and for the remaining sent formal letters.

Thus, the Case of the Skripals has an obvious provocative character. In this case, in the absence of strong evidence of the Kremlin's guilt, London will try to delay the investigation until interest is lost. Meanwhile, European countries will continue to argue about the correct support of anti-Russian hysteria. At the same time, the longer the investigation lasts, the more political contradictions within the EU will grow, which can lead to its split.
