This Wednesday, 14th November, Reframing Russia‘s Dr Precious Chatterje-Doody will be presenting some of the findings from our research on RT’s coverage of the Skripal case at SSEESing Salisbury, an event organised by the Post-Soviet Press Group at UCL SSEES.
From Wednesday 14th November, you will be able to watch this panel discussion here:
Sergei and Yulia Skripal were poisoned with Novichok in Salisbury on 4 March 2018. A police officer investigating the incident also fell ill after coming into contact with the nerve agent. Subsequently, two further people – Charlie Rowley and Dawn Sturgess – were poisoned, the latter fatally. Agents of the Russian military’s foreign intelligence agency – commonly referred to as the GRU – are the prime suspects in the British authorities’ investigation. What is the broader context, and what are the broader implications, of these poisonings? How has the Russian political leadership responded? How has media coverage varied? Join us on 14 November from 19:00 in the Darwin Lecture Theatre for a panel event to discuss these issues.
