Finns found a Ukrainian trace in the case of Skripal

Summary of Disinformation

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/
