The UK killed Skripal to divert attention from Brexit

Summary of Disinformation

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.
