UK violated Article 11 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights by blaming Russia for Skripals poisoning

Summary

UK violated article 11 of the Universal Human Rights declaration by blaming Russia for Skripals poisoning

Disproof

False claim, presented in the form of a charged rhetorical question, during a  monologue on the alleged  UK violations of the Universal Declaration of the Human Rights: "article 11 maintains that guilt needs to be proven, is that the case with Russia in the Skripals incident?"

The claim is in line with recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on Russia being set up to take blame for the Salisbury attack. It is also another attempt to deflect from the real human rights violation, namely the attack on the Skripals and related murder of an innocent civilian in Amesbury.
