Disinfo: Skripal has long been cremated and is in the urn

Summary

Nobody has seen Sergei Skripal for six months. He has long been cremated and is in the urn.

The UK prepared the scenario of his death.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the Salisbury attack and Skripal's death. There are no grounds to believe that Sergei Skripal is dead rather than in hiding from those who attempted to murder him.

There are many competing and contradictory stories promulgated by Russian state-controlled media about the Skripal poisoning.

Estonian society is most concerned about the Islamization of Europe

Estonian society is most concerned about the Islamization of Europe.

Estonia sees what is done in France, England, Germany, Sweden and other countries when where they are trying to resettle Africa to Europe. Estonia sees the danger that is moving towards it too, and this is not a joke.

Disproof

According to the latest data from Eurobarometer, 65% of Estonians think that the most important issue facing the EU is immigration, on the second place is terrorism with 25% and public finances is third with 14%. The most important issues facing Estonia are inflation and rising prices, followed by healthcare and taxes. Islamization did not make it to the list.
