Maybe Sergei Skripal is dead

Summary

Relatives of Sergei and Yulia Skripal think Sergei might be dead. The Salisbury hospital staff are so frightened that they refused for any amount of money to take photographs with Sergei.

Disproof

No evidence given. No reliable resources have reported that there would be any reasons to assume that Sergei Skripal is dead. Further debunking by the Insider: theins.ru/antifake/114915,

Background:

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/

The first European-Crimean Chamber of Commerce to be opened in Slovakia

The first European-Crimean Chamber of Commerce will be opened in Slovakia. An agreement in this regard has been signed by the director of “Krymkongress” Rustam Muratov, Slovak deputy Peter Marček and businessman Roman Busch, after the visit of a Slovak delegation to Crimea on 1 August. The delegation consisted of 12 persons.

Disproof

According to Stopfals.md, the Slovak Ministry of Foreign Affairs denied this information, underlining that there is no agreement between Slovakia and the region of Crimea. The Slovak Republic does not recognise the illegal annexation of Crimea.

There was also no official Slovak delegation to Crimea. According to the Slovak deputy Peter Marček, they went to Crimea as "private individuals"

Pentagon is working out a biological war strategy in the Baltics

Pentagon is working out a biological war strategy in the Baltics.

The Baltic states help Pentagon to develop biological weapon for the WWIII – the role of guinea pigs is reserved for them.

Mosaic outbreaks of African swine fever (ASF) in Eastern Europe are gradually forming a general picture of the testing ground at which the Pentagon is working out the strategy and tactics of the third world war (biological). Probably, in this coordinate system a special role is assigned to the Eastern vanguard of NATO – the Baltic countries, which can be sacrificed. Believe me, conspiracy here does not smell – the facts are obvious.
