The provocation in Salisbury gave the last argument to exclude Russia from the discussion on chemical problems in Syria

Summary

The provocation in Salisbury gave the last argument to exclude Russia from participation in the discussion on chemical problems in Syria.

 

Disproof

Conspiracy theory, no evidence given of a "provocation".

Repeating recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation about chemical weapons use in Syria and Sergei Skripal poisoning.  euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=syria+chemical+weapons&disinfo_issue=&date=, , euvsdisinfo.eu/disinformation-cases/?text=sergei+skripal&disinfo_issue=&date=,

On Saturday, a high number of civilians were killed in the besieged Syrian city of Douma, with evidence pointing towards another chemical attack by the regime, according to the EU.

On April 10 Russia vetoed a U.S.-drafted U.N. Security Council resolution that would have created a new inquiry to ascertain blame for chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

Joint Investigative Mechanism found Syria’s Government responsible for last year’s attack in Khan Shaykhun.

In September 2017, the UN Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic summarized 33 separate incidents where it had found use of chemical weapons. Since then there have been several additional suspected chemical attacks. Between March 2013 and March 2017, the Commission documented 25 incidents of chemical weapons use in the Syrian Arab Republic, of which 20 were perpetrated by government forces and used primarily against civilians.

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

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 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.
