Skripal poison suspects are British TV actors

Summary of Disinformation

CCTV pictures recovered by the British police were actually shots taken from a series called ‘KGB Spy’. So, in fact, Skripal poison suspects were British actors in a TV drama, according to a Facebook post by producer Michael Killigan.

Disproof

No evidence given. Internet searches produced no trace of a home-grown drama called 'KGB Spy.' There is no record of a Facebook account for a TV producer by that name, according to The Sun.

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/
