Britain poisoned Skripal to overshadow other issues

Summary

The British authorities poisoned the ex-spy Skripal to overshadow issues such as the Brexit negotiations and the network of paedophiles exposed in the UK recently.

Disproof

Many competing and contradictory stories promulgated by Russian state-controlled media, the only connecting thread being to confuse their audience and exclude any possibility of Russian involvement https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=sergei+skripal&disinfo_issue=&date=.

The nerve agent has been identified as Novichok (which means newcomer in Russian). It is known to be more powerful than VX and was developed in Russia in the 1970s and 1980s https://www.voanews.com/a/british-prime-minister-russia-poisoning-spy/4294683.html. It's so unusual, that very few scientists outside of Russia have any real experience in dealing with it and no country outside of Russia is known to have developed the substance https://edition.cnn.com/2018/03/13/europe/what-is-novichok-nerve-agent-intl/index.html, https://theconversation.com/what-we-know-about-novichok-the-newby-nerve-agents-linked-to-russia-93264.

In its statement, the European Union expressed shock at the offensive use of any military-grade nerve agent, of a type developed by Russia, for the first time on European soil in over 70 years. http://www.consilium.europa.eu/en/press/press-releases/2018/03/19/statement-by-the-foreign-affairs-council-on-the-salisbury-attack/

UK accusing Russia on poisoning Sergei Skripal and his daughter is Goebbels propaganda, nobody believes it

How was the incident in Salisbury presented? It was immediately packaged as Russia’s aggression in the UK. What are we talking about? We are talking about the fact that Russia attacked its own citizens in the UK using chemical weapons? This is incredible, this is already some level of the Goebbels propaganda.
