The reports of Western media on the Skripal poisoning are propaganda to justify sanctions against Russia

These provocations [like linking Sergei Skripal’s death to Russia] are for internal use. They [the West, first of all the UK] should explain to their citizens, why sanctions are being imposed, why the Russians are presented as fools and why this whole bacchanalia continues in all the media.

The sanctions were imposed on Russia because of the annexation of Crimea. Accusations of anti-Russian propaganda aimed at the Western audience are typical for pro-Kremlin disinformation, see euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=russophobia&disinfo_issue=&date=, https://euvsdisinfo.eu/russia-as-a-victim-of-western-aggression/, and euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=&disinfo_issue=&disinfo_keywords%5B%5D=77369&date=,
