DISINFO: Germany fabricating new "Skripal case" ahead of Normandy summit
Germany is fabricating a new “Skripal case”. The scandalous murder which happened back in August was inflated into an international scandal only now, ahead of the very important Normandy summit. And here, as with the cases of the Skripals and the shot down Boeing, state agencies showed themselves off. Their conclusions can be calculated in advance – they accuse Russia in the same manner.
Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative that there is no proof behind accusations against Russia. Consistent with the narrative on Russophobia. Amid the murder of Georgian citizen Zelimkhan Khangoshvili, Germany expelled two Russian diplomats. Germany's federal prosecutor said that "there are sufficient factual grounds to suggest that the killing... was carried out either on behalf of state agencies of the Russian Federation or those of the Autonomous Chechen Republic, as part of the Russian Federation." Bellingcat, together with the Insider and Spiegel, identified the Berlin bicycle assassin as Vadim Nikolaevich Krasikov who entered France and then Germany under the fake identity of Vadim Sokolov. Krasikov was suspected of the murder of Russian businessman in 2013 but Russia withdrew the Interpol warrant. See similar narratives on Skripal and MH17 cases.
