Yulia Skripal in maternity hospital for 1.5 months now, pregnant since April 2018

Summary of Disinformation

Yulia Skripal has been confined in a maternity hospital for 1.5 months now. It is unusual for a woman to spend so much time in a maternity hospital – let alone the fact that a simple calculation shows she got pregnant in April 2018, a month after her poisoning, when she was in coma according to the British side.


No evidence given of either hospitalisation or pregnancy, and no verifiable source has confirmed the report.

Consistent with a multitude of pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives on the Skripal case.

British police and intelligence investigations have produced hard evidence to charge two Russian nationals for the attack on the Skripals. These two individuals have been identified as officers of the GRU, the Russian military intelligence service. More British public documents and statements on the case can be found here and here.
