Theresa May is Using the Case of Skripal Poisoning to Deal with her Political Enemies

Summary of Disinformation

Theresa May is trying to deal with her political enemies by using EU and bringing up the case of Skripal poisoning.

Theresa May is behind the EU decision to impose sanctions to GRU officials related to Skripal poisoning. It is her way of reminding British politicians that they are all part of the conspiracy around the Skripal case. This way she is reminding Boris Johnson that he publicly lied in front of cameras about having proof that Russia is behind the Skripal poisoning. Her message is “do not touch me, because if Corbyn comes to power we will all be in trouble, I will take down everyone of you with me”.

Disproof

Claims that there is UK government conspiracy behind the Skripal case is often-used method of applying a pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the Salisbury poisoning. Also see here.

British Police has presented a solid chain of evidence on the Skripal Case, with pictures, connecting the suspects to the locations in the case. Parts of the material have been released to the public.

On the 21st of January 2019, EU Foreign Affairs Council unanimously agreed to impose sanctions on, among others, the two GRU officials, and the Head and Deputy Head of the GRU responsible for possession, transport and use in Salisbury (UK) of a toxic nerve agent on the weekend of 4 March 2018.

High Representative Federica Mogherini stressed, that the unanimous decision to impose sanctions is a part of a strong commitment and determination of the European Union to contribute to prevention of use not only of chemical weapons but weapons of mass destruction in general terms. The European Union has always been a very strong supporter of non-proliferation regime of weapons of mass destruction. It continues to put every effort to prevent their use and reacts to their use wherever there is evidence of that. These decisions are made on a very strong legal basis that the member states constantly assess. More: ec.europa.eu/commission/commissioners/2014-2019/mogherini_en,
