Salisbury attack: British secret services fabricated the evidence to blackmail Russia

Summary

[Three different commentators of a TV show state:]

British secret services fabricated the evidence of Salisbury attack to blackmail Russia.

British secret services are among the best in the world. The Skripal case was a political order; which they had to fulfill.

Why do all these horrible events only happen in Britain? The reason is
British secret services who mastermind them.

Disproof

No evidence given. 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. euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=sergei+skripal&disinfo_issue=&date= and euvsdisinfo.eu/report/porton-down-might-be-responsible-for-the-chemical-attack-in-the-uk/,

On September 5, UK counter-terrorism police released images of two suspects in connection with the Salisbury attack. news.met.police.uk/news/counter-terrorism-police-release-images-of-two-suspects-in-connection-with-salisbury-attack-320534, , www.bbc.com/news/uk-45421445,

On September 6, France, Germany, US and Canada stated that they have full confidence in the British assessment that the two suspects were officers from the Russian military intelligence service, also known as the GRU, and that this operation was almost certainly approved at a senior government level. www.gov.uk/government/news/salisbury-attack-joint-statement-by-leaders-of-france-germany-the-united-states-canada-and-the-united-kingdom,

Background:

The toxin was identified as a nerve agent at Porton Down, which is Britain's military research base. They have not done tests with nerve agents since 1989, but are still able to identify these toxins, in order to protect British civilians and troops from attacks www.bbc.com/news/av/uk-43335148/porton-down-britain-s-secret-research-facility

The nerve agent has been identified as Novichok (which means newcomer in Russian). It is known to be more powerful than VX and was developed in Russia in the 1970s and 1980s www.voanews.com/a/british-prime-minister-russia-poisoning-spy/4294683.html. It's so unusual, that very few scientists outside of Russia have any real experience in dealing with it and no country outside of Russia is known to have developed the substance edition.cnn.com/2018/03/13/europe/what-is-novichok-nerve-agent-intl/index.htmltheconversation.com/what-we-know-about-novichok-the-newby-nerve-agents-linked-to-russia-93264

In its statement, the European Union 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. www.consilium.europa.eu/en/press/press-releases/2018/03/19/statement-by-the-foreign-affairs-council-on-the-salisbury-attack/

The West is organising information attacks to weaken Russia’s economy

[Context: UK releasing information on Salisbury poisoning] these information attacks were clearly designed long ago as a pretext to weaken Russia economically.

Maybe Novichok was manufactured in Porton Down

If the OPCW fails to inspect the Porton Down chemical weapons centre near Salisbury, this will mean the organisation is biased, because the purported amounts of Novichok could only have been manufactured in situ, i.e. in immediate proximity to the dispersal site.

Israel will not be able to host Eurovision 2019

Modern Europe’s anti-Semitic rhetoric is shocking. Many artists, whose statements sound more like ordinary Nazism, signed an appeal to the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), claiming that it’s unacceptable to organize Eurovision song contest in Israel.

Disproof

There is no official statement that Israel will not be able to host Eurovision 2019. A number of artists from Europe and beyond voiced support for the appeal from Palestinian artists to boycott the contest next year. Their letter said that "until Palestinians can enjoy freedom, justice and equal rights, there should be no business-as-usual with the state that is denying them their basic rights." Such a political viewpoint cannot be equated to anti-Semitism or Nazism. Typical pro-Kremlin narrative seeking to find "evidence" of such extremism in Europe, see e.g. euvsdisinfo.eu/nazi-east-nazi-west-nazi-over-the-cuckoos-nest/,
