Regular practices of conducting large-scale military exercises, such as Noble Partner 2020, in alliance with the Western states may pose a serious threat to peace and stability in the South Caucasus, the example of which was Georgia’s military aggression in August 2008.
A curious discrepancy: in Russia, the case is being freely and openly discussed by all sorts of professionals who have a say on the matter – doctors, those who treated the patient, investigators, journalists, diplomats, and politicians. However, in the West only high ranking politicians do the talking, the doctors are silent. The doctors at the Berlin clinic Charité seem to have been gagged because they did not say anything.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on Navalny's poisoning.
The Berlin clinic Charité, where Alexei Navalny is being treated, has issued several statements with the preliminary results of medical investigation.
After Alexei Navalny was admitted to the Charité clinic, its doctors confirmed, after a careful investigation, that the Russian politician was poisoned by a substance from the group of cholinesterase inhibitors:
"Clinical findings indicate poisoning with a substance from the group of cholinesterase inhibitors. The specific substance involved remains unknown, and a further series of comprehensive testing has been initiated. The effect of the poison – namely, the inhibition of cholinesterase in the body – was confirmed by multiple tests in independent laboratories."
Charité also issued several statements on his condition: that Navalny remains in a serious condition (September 2), that his condition improved (September 7), and that Navalny was removed from mechanical ventilation (September 14).
