As speakers we all know the importance of properly preparing our material far enough in advance so we may have sufficient time to rehearse and "fine-tune" our speeches. Unfortunately, this is not enough to assure that your speech or presentation is well received. Your speech preparation must also include gathering information about your audience and their needs. A well prepared speech given to the wrong audience can have the same effect as a poorly prepared speech given to the correct audience.
This may very well have caused the deaths of some of those Russian agents operating in conflict zones. Skripal is also a known double agent — or double traitor.
Without doubt, Skripal had enemies, probably quite a few. There are many permutations as to who his attempted murderer may be. Accusations and speculation are rife, with little hard evidence being made public other than some basic details. Russia is disputing their involvement.
Earlier government-linked media and politicians in Russia took a defensive stance, claiming in advance that the Russian state had nothing to do with the crime. Here is a short bio of Skripal compiled by Reuters: Valery Morozovanother former Russian intelligence officer who now lives in exile in Britain, said Skripal was still working with Russian military intelligence.

British security officials, however, have said the specific chemical used would have been difficult to obtain and could only have come from a state run or state-licensed laboratory.
Nerve agents including Sarin and VX are manufactured by the British Government in Porton Down, just 8 miles from where Sergei Skripal was attacked and is the largest stock of deadly nerve agents and gases anywhere in Europe.
Craig Murray, ex British ambassador even hints at something more sinister: Hardly the actions of a state that already had him in prison for the highest of crimes and wanting him silenced.
The GRU foreign military intelligence agency of Russiaof which Skripal reached the rank of Colonel, was recently implicated in the hacking of the U. If Skripal was tapping his old sources to get fresh intelligence, rather than enjoying his retirement in silence, he could have turned himself into an target.
One thing is for sure, Britain is playing an extremely high stakes and dangerous geo-political game — for what? A foreign traitor, despised by his own, passed on by America to be re-homed as part of a spy swap, with no perceptible allegiance to Britain. There is more to this story than meets the eye.
