The UK killed Skripal to divert attention from Brexit

Summary

The UK’s anti-Russian provocation has entered its final phase: London is preparing the global audience for Sergei Skripal’s death, and will announce it when a favourable moment arrives (e.g., Brexit or a possible “expropriation” of Russian assets).

In fact, Skripal is already dead because he refused to cooperate with the provocateurs, the British. They will summon his ghost whenever they deem it suitable.

Disproof

No evidence given. This is a recurring pro-Kremlin conspiracy theory about Skripal's death. There is no reasonable ground to assume that Sergei Skripal is dead.

Moreover, this is just one of many competing and contradictory stories promulgated by Russian state-controlled media about the Skripal poisoning.

Skripal has long been cremated and is in the urn

Nobody has seen Sergei Skripal for six months. He has long been cremated and is in the urn.

The UK prepared the scenario of his death.

Disproof

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about the Salisbury attack and Skripal's death. There are no grounds to believe that Sergei Skripal is dead rather than in hiding from those who attempted to murder him.

There are many competing and contradictory stories promulgated by Russian state-controlled media about the Skripal poisoning.
