Unscrupulous, corrupt and greedy Ukrainians have always been betraying Russia

Summary

Those Ukrainians, who are tracing their ancestry since the very beginning of the Zaporozhskaya Sich [historical territory of the Ukrainian Cossacks] or even earlier, have always been unscrupulous, corrupt, greedy. [—] This mentality has not been diluted by immigrants from Russia, nor by any other factors. […] Since Ukraine joined Russia – called “reunification” – the first what the Ukrainians started doing was betraying. Betraying Russia. And they were always focusing on laying under those who is going to pay more.

A very good appearance of Yulia Skripal on her recent interview’s video proves that Novichok was not used on her in the UK

Many women in Russia and in other countries […] will now ask whether it is possible to set up ‘Novichok’ clinics.

We really like the changes in Julia’s [Skripal] appearance –  from ‘before’ to ‘after’ [Photographs shown on the screen in the studio] It is obvious there has been no ‘Novichok’ used there.

 

Disproof

Comparing photographs of Yulia Skripal before and after the poisoning cannot serve as a proof that there was no attack.

Many competing and contradictory stories promulgated by Russian state-controlled media on the Skripal poisoning https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=sergei+skripal&disinfo_issue=&date=

On Sunday 4 March Sergei and Yulia Skripal were poisoned in Salisbury with a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia. As for the scar on her throat, news outlets, including the BBC and Telegraph, have described it as a result of a tracheotomy, a surgical procedure which opens a hole in a person's windpipe to help them breathe. She has not shared specifics of her treatment, but described it as "invasive, painful, and depressing." http://uk.businessinsider.com/skripal-poisoning-yulia-skripal-neck-scar-hints-at-painful-recovery-2018-5?r=US&IR=T

Ukraine is to blame for MH17

The Buk missile that shot down flight MH17 in southeast Ukraine in 2014 is not Russian, but Ukrainian.
Disproof

Many competing and contradictory stories promulgated by Russian state-controlled media on MH17. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=mh17&disinfo_issue=&date=,

The Joint Investigation Team has concluded that flight MH17 was shot down on 17 July 2014 by a missile of the 9M38 series, launched by a BUK-TELAR, from farmland in the vicinity of Pervomaiskiy (or: Pervomaiskyi). At that time, the area was controlled by pro-Russian fighters. The BUK-TELAR was brought in from the territory of the Russian Federation and subsequently, after having shot down flight MH-17, was taken back to the Russian Federationhttps://www.om.nl/onderwerpen/mh17-crash/@96068/jit-flight-mh17-shot/

24 May 2018, JIT stated that the BUK-TELAR that was used to down MH17 originates from the 53rd Anti Aircraft Missile brigade, a unit of the Russian army from Kursk in the Russian Federation. The JIT reached this conclusion after extensive comparative research. Several images of the BUK-TELAR with which MH17 was downed are available. Analysis of those produces a number of characteristics. The combination of those is so special that that can be considered as a fingerprint. This fingerprint has been compared with numerous images of BUK-TELARS, both Ukrainian and Russian ones. The only BUK-TELAR on which this combination of characteristics also was found, is a BUK-TELAR that was recorded several times when it joined a convoy of the 53rd brigade on 23 – 25 June 2014. www.om.nl/onderwerpen/mh17-crash/@103196/update-criminal-0/,

Furthermore, a joint international open source investigation led by Bellingcat has identified conclusively that the person of interest known as ‘Andrey Ivanovich’ or ‘Orion’ whose identity is sought by the Joint Investigating Team in connection with the criminal investigation into the downing of MH17, is in fact Russian citizen Oleg Vladimirovich Ivannikov. Ivannikov was an officer of the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Russian Ministry of Defence (GRU), and served in that function until at least as late as September 2017. During his undercover deployment to LNR, he coordinated and supervised the military activities of Russian militants, pro-Russian separatists and “private army” contingents from the Wagner group. Ivannikov also supervised the procurement and transport of weapons across the Russia Ukraine border. He held these functions at the time of the downing of MH17. www.bellingcat.com/news/uk-and-europe/2018/05/25/mh17-russian-gru-commander-orion-identified-oleg-ivannikov/,

The European Union an NATO have called on the Russian Federation to accept its responsibility and to fully cooperate with all efforts to establish accountability www.consilium.europa.eu/en/press/press-releases/2018/05/25/declaration-by-the-high-representative-on-behalf-of-the-eu-on-the-findings-of-the-joint-investigation-team-on-the-downing-of-flight-mh17/, www.nato.int/cps/en/natohq/news_154585.htm,

On the basis of the JIT’s conclusions, the Netherlands and Australia are convinced that Russia is responsible for the deployment of the Buk installation that was used to down MH17. The two governments are formally holding Russia accountable. www.government.nl/latest/news/2018/05/25/mh17-the-netherlands-and-australia-hold-russia-responsible,
