It was just announced that Russia won't respond to the UK ultimatum until samples of the chemical agent are provided.
Or what? In the past few years, they have invaded a country and shot down a commercial airliner and the west has done nothing. I don't think this is gonna be any different
"I have no idea what you are talking about or who did this" - Putin, by midnight tonight.
I will be fucking shocked if they accept the blame for this. And I'll also be fucking shocked if the White House joins Britain in directly blaming the Russians.

And that day, he was right. The UK government never did shit.
I’m on a plane to Cuba right now. Great. I’m gonna be in Cuba when wwIII begins
"Ukraine must of done it while shooting down MH17 with an attack plane." - Putin
Putin: "Here, let me do it again, just in case you had any lingering doubts."
Russia has been a terrible member of the international community for years. This is a great opportunity to bring on diplomatic and financial sanctions that could leave them stinging, and incentivize better behaviour.
Not holding my breath though.
