Germany has sent to Russia a response on its questions about the Navalny affair. However, there are no new substantial elements which could prove the alleged poisoning of opposition leader Alexey Navalny.
Alexei Navalny is a depleted political project. He has done all that he could do for his Western partners: played the role of an oppressed dissident; an investigator and a victim of the evil Russian political regime.
Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative attempting to discredit Alexei Navalny, alleging that his organisation is sponsored by anti-Russian forces.
Alexei Navalny is a founder and leader of the "Anti-Corruption Foundation" (FBK), which has investigated embezzlement from the state budget, uncovered the life of Russian politicians and businessmen close to the government and different corruption practices.
FBK's goal is to eliminate corruption. Their funding comes from donations and therefore the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation recognised FBK as a "foreign agent" due to the Russian "foreign agent" law, since they receive donations from outside Russia. However, FBK does not agree with that claim and is trying to appeal this in court.
Alexei Navalny was arrested following his return to Russia from Germany, where he was treated for poisoning with Novichok-type chemical nerve agent. The European Union has condemned the arrest of Alexei Navalny and has demanded his immediate release.
Read similar disinformation messages alleging that the West has an interest in the death of Navalny to launch a new wave of sanctions against Russia, that only traces of alcohol and caffeine were found in Navalny's blood, that the West will falsely accuse Russia of poisoning Navalny, as with Skripal and Litvinenko or that the US used Navalny case to block Russian vaccine against COVID-19.
