The Skripal case crumbles due to the lack of proof of Russia's involvement

Summary of Disinformation

On the 4th of March 2018 in Salisbury, former GRU agent Sergey Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned, causing a major international scandal. The British authorities have accused the Russian state of being involved in the  poisoning. After one year the Skripal case crumbles due to the lack of proof to indicate Russia’s guilt.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Skripal poisoning claiming  that United Kingdom was never able to prove a “Russian trace” and did not provide detailed evidence of Russia’s involvement.

UK government has INDEED provided hard evidence for Russia’s involvement in the poisoning. British police and intelligence investigations have produced hard evidence which was sufficient to charge two Russian nationals – identified as officers of the Russian Military Intelligence, GRU – for the attack on the Skripals.
