Disinfo: The doctors treating the Skripals admitted that the diagnosis was not made by them


It is impossible to understand how the patients who were poisoned, if they believe what the doctors say themselves by the powerful neural-paralytic substance A234, were able to be cured in Salisbury. It is known that there is no antidote for the poison. When being poisoned by A234 it is meaningless to give the injured air through the trachea. It is from this procedure that Julia Skripal has a deep scar around her neck. Until now, from the public appearances of those who in one way or another have been linked to the scandalous history in Salisbury, there has not been a single convincing proof, or at least evidence that there is a Russian trace in this case .

In the original article by BBC, which Vesti is referring to, the medical staff does not state that they didn't diagnose the Skripals. They do explain though, that when the Skripals were found, an opioid overdose was suspected. "We were just told that there were two patients down in the emergency department who were critically unwell and they would be coming up to the unit," recalled ward sister Ms Clark. But when police became aware of Mr Skripal's former career as a Russian spy, they told the hospital and discussed the possibility that he may have been the victim of a targeted attack. www.bbc.com/news/uk-44278609, Further debunking by the Insider.

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.
