The journalist tells about the conversations with Sergey Skripal before attempt and about the first reaction of the ex-colonel of GRU to the version of London about wine of Russia. Excerpts from Urban's work publish the international editions. In material of the British The Guardian it is said that originally Skripal didn't believe in the version of the British authorities that he was poisoned by agents of Russia. As the journalist writes, before attempt the former double agent was "a shameless Russian nationalist", regularly watched Channel One, has supported annexation of the Crimea and called Ukrainians "simply sheep who need the good shepherd".

Besides, according to Urban, the purpose of GRU Skripal became just because the Russian intelligence agencies didn't manage to find the colonel Alexander Poteev fleeing Russia, the ex-deputy head of management of illegal investigation of SVR of Russia.
