Disinfo: Finns found a Ukrainian trace in the case of Skripal


Finns found the Ukrainian trace in the case of Skripal.  After analysing the available information, a number of Finnish politicians came to the conclusion that with a high degree of probability, the special services of Ukraine may be involved in the case of Skripal.


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 an EU 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/

The Ukrainian government has decided to export Ukrainians’ blood

The Ukrainian government has decided to export Ukrainians’ blood. “Ukrainian citizens are about to become biological fodder. From now along with grain, amber and honey, the blood of Ukrainian citizens, ready to sell bits of themselves in order to eat, will be up for export”.


Ukraine’s Health Ministry dismissed Russian media claims that Ukraine is exporting blood as completely false. According to the Ministry, Ukraine exports medical products such as albumin produced from leftover blood. Such export s are allowed only after Ukraine’s blood product needs are completely taken care of and there are enough reserve supplies  in stock to guarantee the country’s  needs.
