Finns found a Ukrainian trace in the case of Skripal

Summary of Disinformation

Ukrainian trace is the most probable in the Skripal case, Finnish politicians concluded. Ukraine has an obvious motive, not Russia. UK russophobes have been coming down on Russia already for a month.



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=

One Finnish MP, Tom Packalen, has claimed Ukraine "gains from the situation".

In its statement, the European Union - and Finland as its member state - 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/
