After Skripal poisoning, the West now says that Russians are a nation of criminals

Summary

After Skripal poisoning, the West now says that Russians are a nation of criminals.

Disproof

No one has called Russians a nation of criminals.

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. https://euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=sergei+skripal&disinfo_issue=&date=

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. https://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. https://edition.cnn.com/2018/03/13/europe/what-is-novichok-nerve-agent-intl/index.html, https://theconversation.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. http://www.consilium.europa.eu/en/press/press-releases/2018/03/19/statement-by-the-foreign-affairs-council-on-the-salisbury-attack/

The West punishes Russia for having chosen Putin as a president again

Russia has been for Putin. Russians have chosen Putin and now are being punished for this. The date [for expulsion of Russian diplomats after Salisbury attack] was chosen in purpose: March 26th  This is the anniversary of the first victory of Putin. This is a special diplomatic action.           

 

Disproof

The expulsion has nothing to do with the Russian election.

On Sunday 4 March Sergei and Yulia Skripal were poisoned in Salisbury with a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia.

143 Russian intelligence officers based in 26 countries were expelled as a reaction to the attack. www.gov.uk/government/news/novichok-nerve-agent-use-in-salisbury-uk-government-response,

The West has announced the expulsion of Russian diplomats to muffle the ‘remarkable victory of Russia’ in the Eastern Ghouta

All this hysteria [the expulsion of Russian diplomats from the US and Europe after the Salisbury attack] is being carried out to muffle the effect of the remarkable victory of Russia and Syria in the Eastern Ghouta.

 

Disproof

The expulsion had nothing to do with Russia's involvement in the Syrian war.

On Sunday 4 March Sergei and Yulia Skripal were poisoned in Salisbury with a military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia.

The expulsion of Russian diplomats means that the US has declared a New Cold War on Russia

When the UK began leading such a crusade [the expulsion of Russian diplomats], the banner of this crusade was raised up by the United States. In fact the United States announced the beginning of a large-scale Cold War. This is a fact.

 

Disproof

Neither the US nor the UK have announced a Cold War on Russia.
