To prominent Russian filmmaker Nikita Mikhalkov, the poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal is like a «blockbuster is written by a very low-grade screenwriter.» Mikhalkov made the comparison in an interview from incumbent President Vladimir Putin's campaign headquarters in Moscow on Sunday. «If Russia wanted to do it, nobody would know about it. It would be done tidy and simply — like... Еще serious intelligence services usually work,» said the Order of Merit for the Fatherland recepient. Mikhalkov elaborated: «To get rid of a man who has once been swapped, [to do it] just one week ahead of the elections, [to do it] in England, you know, it a sort of a naive animation film from the sixties.» The director also argued that the poisoning-related allegations «prompted people to come and vote for Putin.»
