Yulia Skripal was kidnapped by the British secret service

Summary of Disinformation

Yulia Skripal was kidnapped by the British secret service so she could not testify about what really happened to Russian diplomats, and she is not allowed to talk to her family, for example her cousin Viktoria Skripal.

Disproof

No evidence given. Yulia Skripal issued her longest statement yet on Wednesday night to make clear she does not want the help of the Russian Embassy, nor her cousin. "I have access to friends and family and I have been made aware of my specific contacts at the Russian embassy, who have kindly offered me their assistance in any way they can. At the moment I do not wish to avail myself of their services. I want to stress that no one speaks for me, or for my father, but ourselves. I thank my cousin Viktoria for her concern for us, but ask that she does not visit me or try to contact me for the time being. Her opinions and assertions are not mine and they are not my father’s."
