Photo: Toby Melville/Reuters In Britain leaves the book about Sergey Skripale. The journalist of the Air Force Mark Urban claims that he is the only correspondent who not only saw the ex-colonel of GRU, but also has interviewed him hours-long one year prior to attempt of poisoning. Initially he wanted to use him for the book about spies, however after the incident in Salisbury has decided to publish separately. The British tabloid Daily Mail has published excerpts from the book under the heading "I Wanted Life outside Russia". Urban writes that Skripal now, "perhaps, has already recovered from poisoning and disappears, but, most likely, will never appear to tell the version of events". In the book Urban tells that the service on Malta as the attache on culture and sport at embassy in 1984 became the first foreign Skripalya task. There he for the purpose of recruitment had to reveal alleged agents in ruling circles of Malta and also the western diplomats, military or spies. As Urban writes, Skripal spent evenings to the companies of the American seamen and pilots coming to Malta in a holiday from bases in the Southern Italy. "He bought by him drinks and conducted with them pleasant conversations". Then the Soviet intelligence agent had also had first doubts in on what party he really would like to be. And with disintegration of the Soviet Union he has felt the betrayed "new democratic leaders" of the country Mikhail Gorbachev and Boris Yeltsin. And in 1992 I have asked for resignation, however his request has been rejected. Skripal has been sent at first to Paris, and then to Madrid where also I worked at embassy. There in 1996 he contacted the agent of the British MI6 Richard Begnall. He was presented by the oil industry worker from Gibraltar who looked for business partner in Russia. Skripal hasn't been interested in cooperation with CIA, Urban writes, it was too risky. And here about Britain he had very much "a positive opinion". According to Urban, Skripal said that he is imposed by the idea put in the British proverb "My house — my fortress". As a result he has agreed to the proposal of the British agent to transfer information for money. During their next meeting Skripal has transferred to Begnall the drawing and structure of command of GRU. That was very pleased, and London too. MI6 for the first time in 30 years had had an agent from GRU. Skripal was given the code name Forthwith. Information transfer happened on specially leased apartment. Paid him several thousands of dollars for each meeting. In September of the same year Skripal has returned to Moscow, having headed human resources department in GRU. To contact to the western intelligence agencies in Russia for him it was too risky. Then in favor of the British already him the wife involuntarily has begun to spy. In 1997 she has gone for rest to Alicante with the daughter Yulia. In hotel she has met that Richard Begnall to transfer a gift from the spouse — the novel which pages I was
