The best way to gauge the Kremlin’s complicity is to consider that its involvement is directly proportionate to the number of conspiracy theories being floated by #Russia’s state media (e.g. #MH17). With respect to #Skripal, numerous “alternative story plots” are already in play.
Russia’s state media #Skripal conspiracy theory No.1:
“Accidental exposure”
Porton Down, where the Brits were experimenting with the same types of nerve agents, is located next door to where Skripal and his daughter were found.
Russia’s state media #Skripal conspiracy theory No.2:
“Alcoholism & drug addiction, stress, severe nervous breakdown & depression are the inevitable occupational diseases of the traitor. And as a result— heart attacks, strokes, traffic accidents—and, finally, suicide.”
Russia’s state media #Skripal conspiracy theory No.3:
“Untrustworthy or Complicit Lab”
RT is attempting to preemptively discredit the lab analyzing the nerve agent thought to be used, reporting that Porton Down is mired in controversy, has been accused of experimenting on humans.
Russia’s state media #Skripal conspiracy theory No.4:
“Accidental Overdose”
Skripal and his daughter may have overdosed on Fentanyl.
Russia’s state media #Skripal conspiracy theory No.5:
“Stoking Russophobia”
“Slow deaths are good for news stories. Just as #Litvinenko was being slowly poisoned with weak poison, this comrade [Skripal] is being slowly poisoned with weak poison to prolong Western news coverage.”
#Skripal conspiracy theory No.6:
#Skripal conspiracy theory No.7:
"The Brits Did It"
#Skripal conspiracy theory No. 8:
"Americans Did It"
#Skripal conspiracy theory No. 9:

#Skripal conspiracy theory No. 11:
