Body Language Analysis No. 4246: Former senior KGB spy - says he was warned that Sergei Skripal and his daughter were in danger - Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Boris Karpichkov is a former KGB spy. Here, his interview is included in light of the recent poisoning in Salsbury, UK. Mr. Karpichkov said he was warned that he, Sergei Skripal, and Skripal's daughter, Yulia - were in all in danger. A portion of Karpichkov's interview is included in the above video. What follows is a highlight/analysis of one particular nonverbal signal.

Beginning at 1:48, Boris Karpichkov says, "Yes - he is - he's still - the undercover - senior field officer - of Russia - secret service called FSB..."

During 1:51, as he speaks the word "...  field ...", Mr. Karpichkov displays a classic microexpression of contempt (in the image captured immediately above). Watch the video carefully - focusing on his left, mid-face - at regular speed, and again at 1/2, and then at 1/4 speeds.

You may also notice Karpichkov's partial (left) eyelid closure - for while this specific action is not a required component of contempt - it may act as a contempt amplifier (as we see in this example).
