Dominic Raab said: “From today, the UK will have new powers to stop those involved in serious human rights abuses and violations from entering the UK, channelling money through our banks and profiting from our economy,”

Theresa May said: "Russia's record of conducting state-sponsored assassinations, and our assessment that Russia views some defectors as legitimate targets for assassinations, the government has concluded that it is highly likely that Russia was responsible for the act against Sergei and Yulia Skripal"

Dan Kaszeta : “Sarin is een goed voorbeeld van zo’n zenuwgas: ik heb er mijn carrière aan te danken. Nadat een Japanse sekte in 1995 een terroristische aanslag met saringas in de metro van Tokio had gepleegd, werd ik door het Witte Huis gerekruteerd. Enig probleem: ik had op dat moment nog nooit van sarin gehoord. Want chemie in de opleiding van het Amerikaanse leger is nu niet meteen échte scheikunde; eerder ‘chemie voor dummies’. (lacht) Ik ben toen als een gek beginnen te studeren”

Dan Kaszeta : “Ze hadden Skripal ook uit de weg kunnen ruimen zonder één spoor achter te laten. De man heeft overgewicht, rookt en drinkt te veel.

Dan Kaszeta (about Vladimir Putin) : “Poetin stamt uit de KGB: die organisatie was niet meer of minder dan de maffia van de Sovjet-Unie”

Dan Kaszeta: “Ik ging op kosten van het leger studeren aan de universiteit: Russisch en politieke wetenschappen. De deal was dat ik daarna ergens in Rusland gedropt zou worden als geheim agent. De Koude Oorlog woedde nog volop en Ronald Reagan was aan de macht. Maar twee jaar later viel de Muur en stortte de Sovjet-Unie in....
