London is practising a ‘God-level trolling’ in the Skripal case: look at the time stamps of the photos

Summary

Spokeswoman for Russia’s Foreign Ministry claimed that London is practising a ‘God-level trolling’ in the Skripal’s case: the security camera footage of the two suspects arriving at Gatwick Airport on March 2, 2018, supposedly shows them in the same place at the same time.

“Have a look. The same place, the same corridor, and the same time. So either they just superimposed the same date and exact time on these photos, or Russian Military Intelligence agents have learned to walk in tandem while appearing separately in two different photos,” she said.

Disproof

No evidence given.

After passengers clear passport control and customs at Gatwick, they are obliged to walk separately through a row of identical barriers. The two men could simply walk through two adjacent corridors, the synchronized barriers letting them in at exactly the same time.

According to Meduza, a closer inspection of the camera footage reveals that the suspects (identified as Russian citizens Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov) were clearly filmed in different corridors. In the bottom-right corner of the images, a red sign that appears in each photo isn’t the same.

Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation on Salisbury attack. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=skripal&disinfo_issue=&date= Many competing and contradictory stories promulgated by Russian state-controlled media on the Skripal poisoning https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=sergei+skripal&disinfo_issue=&date=

On Sunday 4 March Sergei and Yulia Skripal were poisoned in Salisbury with a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia. As for the scar on her throat, news outlets, including the BBC and Telegraph, have described it as a result of a tracheotomy, a surgical procedure which opens a hole in a person's windpipe to help them breathe. She has not shared specifics of her treatment, but described it as "invasive, painful, and depressing." http://uk.businessinsider.com/skripal-poisoning-yulia-skripal-neck-scar-hints-at-painful-recovery-2018-5?r=US&IR=T

The OPCW have confirmed the UK findings in the case. "The results of the analysis by the OPCW designated laboratories of environmental and biomedical samples collected by the OPCW team confirm the findings of the United Kingdom relating to the identity of the toxic chemical that was used in Salisbury and severely injured three people." https://www.opcw.org/news/article/opcw-issues-report-on-technical-assistance-requested-by-the-united-kingdom/

D.C. and London are preparing another great war

The establishment in D. C. and in London want to use the conflict in Syria and the Skripal case to gain ground for another great war. The only person standing in the way is US president Donald Trump.

No proof that the Amesbury agent is from the same batch as the Salisbury agent.

Disproof

According to the UK’s analysis, independently verified by the OPCW, the exact same chemical nerve agent was used in the poisoning of Dawn Sturgess and Charles Rowley as was used in the poisoning of the Skripals. www.gov.uk/government/news/salisbury-attack-joint-statement-by-leaders-of-france-germany-the-united-states-canada-and-the-united-kingdom,

The Election day was one of the calmest in recent years

Election Day was “one of the calmest in recent years” and police said the situation was “even more auspicious” compared to “average statistic indicators” and no incidents reported.

Disproof

Portraying a a false picture of Election Day in Russia according to the independent media reports. “Police are brutally crushing the protesters, even teenagers and elders, about a hundred arrested,” Echo Moskvy reported on the rally in St. Petersburg. Russia’s independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta reported country-wide clashes between the protesters and the police, with hundreds detained. The independent monitoring website ovd.info posted the list of the names of 839 protesters detained by the police in 36 cities across Russia. For more information, see Polygraph.
