#RussianDisinformation at the #UN and #UNSC is not a new development, but #PutinsWar in #Ukraine has brought it into sharp focus. A 🧵 based on my experience leading a team @UKUN_NewYork covering Syria, Ukraine and other issues 1/11
#Disinformation and #Propaganda has been a significant feature of #Kremlin policy since Putin’s controversial ‘re-election’ in 2012. The 🎯 audience is primarily the Russian public but in the #UN context it is also UN member states 2/11
The Putin regime has used #disinformation to justify the 2014 annexation of #Crimea and invasion of #Donbas, to cover up the Russian downing of #MH17, the poisoning of the #Skripals and #Navalny, and #ChemicalWeapons use in #Syria 3/11

#CaroleCadwalladr, seen here with her friend, the "ex-spy" Christopher Steele, has evidently been ordered to re-heat the #Skripal #Salisbury #novichok story (which Steele was involved with) because of the "biolabs" found in #Ukraine. So let's deconstruct her #disinformation. 1/11
#CaroleCadwalladr has long been known to be associated with UK intelligence. Documents reveal her connection to the discredited 'Integrity Initiative', a project intended to build a network of client journalists to promote the establishment's agenda. 2/11
This is the article we'll quickly look at, which #CaroleCadwalladr had published in The Observer today. We will see that she is the antithesis of an investigative journalist, carefully avoiding the important questions about stories like the #Skripals. 3/11…

@dankaszeta omitted significant facts and distorted aspects of the #Skripal case in his recent talk for @edskeptics, as I will show in this thread.

Kaszeta's talk is here. It's over an hour long but I'll give ~time reference points with my remarks.

Kaszeta blocked me on Twitter long ago.

This was after I asked him how it was possible that two people as physically different as Sergei and Yulia #Skripal could be *almost simultaneously overcome* by the effects of a nerve agent they had allegedly touched hours before.

After I blocked Kaszeta back (as I do with all who block me) he tried to claim I'd blocked him first!

That's the self-described "king of nerve agent Twitter".

Ah well.

Apart from listening to his @edskeptics talk, I also looked at his book, 'Toxic'.

Let's get started.

I've previously made a short timeline of what we're told happened to the #Skripals on the day they were poisoned (Sunday, Mar 4 2018) using only official/MSM sources. This is an expanded version, again focused on the day of the poisoning. 1/43
Sources are [numbered] and listed at the end of the thread. I have added some sourced *comments and used brackets <where the exact point in the timeline is unclear from the sources>. 2/43
9:15 #Skripal's red BMW is seen in #Salisbury in the area of London Road [1]. It is reported Sergei and Yulia were going to visit the graves of Sergei’s wife and son: Yulia’s mother and brother. 4/43

The timeline of the #Skripals' movements on the day they were poisoned (Sun, Mar 4 2018) isn't clear. Did they go to the pub and then for a meal, or the other way around? Maybe it doesn't matter.

But here's what we know according to the official account, with rough timings. 1/6
12.30pm: Two Russian agents walk up to Sergei Skripal's front door in broad daylight on a Sunday lunchtime while he & Yulia are at home, and spray it with one of the deadliest nerve agents known to man using a specially adapted perfume bottle. They then head into Salisbury... 2/6
...and are later captured on CCTV in town, shopping.

13.30: Sergei and Yulia leave the house, both touching the front door and so becoming exposed to a nerve agent said to be eight times more lethal than VX, which kills in minutes.

13.45: The Skripals are seen on CCTV... 3/6

Damn there is so much going on today. This is what I really wanted to be looking at this morning and now I am over lunch ... the new very data rich report from @Graphika_NYC & @benimmo. So big in fact they had to create its own website. #infosec #osint
This is a good graphic to commit to memory .... you could also layer in more specific topics like #MH17, #whitehelmets, #skripals ect ... I am forgetting a few others right now. #disinfo #infosec #osint
Given the current racial unrest in the United States, I find this section of the Secondary Infektion report by @Graphika_NYC especially interesting. Also the use of a Wix website?? I believe the @arawnsley article also mentioned a Wix site (rusyns.wixsite[.]com) #georgefloyd #blm Image

After 2 years of silence, British media says that #Skripals escaped from MI5, fled UK and disappeared...

Two Russian citizens denied consular access. Julia publicly expressed a desire to return to Russia.
Victoria #Skripal, mentioned in British article, has no idea, where her uncle & Yulia might be.

Sergei’s 92 y.o. mother is still waiting for for a phone call from her son. Before disappearing he used to call his ill mother every week...…
#Skripal ‘s niece doubts Sergei and Yulia could’ve been moved from UK due to health problems.

@EliotHiggins @rossathome @Agent_Hodgo @bellingcat @DanKaszeta @medialens This entire article is based on the false assumption that the #Skripals received swift diagnosis/treatment for nerve agent. THEY DID NOT -- for at least 36hrs, according to their doctors. The dose was also considerable, given the state they were found in.…
@EliotHiggins @rossathome @Agent_Hodgo @bellingcat @DanKaszeta @medialens "It is clear that the #Skripals and the police constable received serious and relevant medical interventions" -- this is a lie of omission, as the medics told the BBC that nerve agent was not suspected until DCI Bailey arrived at Salisbury A&E, more than a day after the Skripals.
@EliotHiggins @rossathome @Agent_Hodgo @bellingcat @DanKaszeta @medialens "NHS ambulance services and hospital A&E services have been worrying about chemical terrorism for decades now" -- this is another lie of omission, which again does not take into account the fact that the medics in this case were not initially worried about nerve agent at all.

Well, it's the anniversary of the #Skripals poisoning, or, as some people would see it, the day that several GRU agents completely randomly descended upon the town of Salisbury to admire a famous spire.

Here is a refresher on our work regarding this case…
Frankly, it only got weirder/more shocking from there.…
The man calling himself "Ruslan Boshirov" was not, in fact, a sports nutritionist with a vaguely homoerotic (don't believe us? Recall the particulars of his RT interview performance) love for English cathedrals

Now that EU sanctions against the #Skripals poisoning suspects are official — let's take a walk down memory lane.

This is where we began:…
Things only got more interesting from there on out.

Who knew that Russian bureaucracy could leave operatives so exposed? Batch sequence numbers of passports used for covert identities? It was like absurdist theater.…
And it got better, so much better.

Poisoning suspect "Ruslan Boshirov" turned out to be decorated GRU colonel Anatoliy Chepiga. The recipient of Russia's highest state award — i.e. *Putin probably met this man at some point*…

KAC admits that Woodward is credible & his book is ‘damaging’

Prosecutors say ‘family values’ Rep. Duncan Hunter spent campaign cash on mistresses.

Release the #Kavanaugh emails

JL:”Grassley, says they are producing the records required by law under the PRA
Durbin reminds him that they've actually circumvented that law & the process is being run by Kavanaugh's close friend & former employee, Bill Burck.”

Sen. Durbin:”Between 2001 and 2003, Republican Senate staffers hacked into and stole 4,670 files on controversial Bush judicial nominees from 6 Democrats, including me.

This scandal amounted to a digital Watergate, not unlike Russia’s hacking of the DNC.”

BREAKING: British prosecutors say they believe they have enough evidence to charge two Russian nationals over the poisoning of Sergei & Yulia #Skripal in Salisbury in March. Their names are Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov #skripalpoisoning
Photos of suspects - their names believed to be aliases. Police say they travelled to UK from Moscow on March 2nd, went to Salisbury on 3rd & 4th (day of attack) and returned to Moscow that evening. Minute traces of novichok were found in their London hotel room. #skripals
Police say a counterfeit perfume bottle (Nina Ricci “Premier Jour”) was used to apply the novichok to the Skripals’ front door. One woman, Dawn Sturgess, later died and her partner was hospitalized after handling the bottle #skripalpoisoning

BREAK - @metpoliceuk announce that they believe a "small bottle" found on Wednesday was the source of #novichok that killed a British citizen and left a second critically ill in hospital #Skripal #Salisbury
The small bottle was found during search of Charlie Rowley's house in #Amesbury. Scientists at Porton Down ran tests to confirm a substance it contained is #novichok. Further tests will be conducted to establish whether this is the same batch as was used against the #Skripals
Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu, Head of UK Counter Terrorism Policing, said: “This is clearly a significant and positive development."
