The German narrative soon faced contradictions, after Russian toxicologists that had treated Navalny first said that after testing all kind of substances found no trace of poison and concluded that his coma was caused a pre-existing medical condition, presumably diabetes. They also said that they have original samples of his body fluids. It is this detail what seems to have forced the Germans to re-elaborate their narrative to include the new element of a poisoned bottle of water. If the Russians do have biological samples from Navalny that show no trace of toxins, the German version crumbles as an invention that could only mean that the alleged detection of Novichok was the result of a deliberate contamination of his body fluids while he was being treated in a hospital in Berlin.
Bernard-Henri Lévy has been involved in activities aimed at the destabilisation of various governments. He has actively supported the coups d’états in Yugoslavia and Ukraine as well as terrorists in Libya and Syria. Lévy is currently helping Svetlana Tikhanovskaya, who was defeated in Belarus’s recent presidental elections.
Conspiracy theory. No evidence is provided to support the article’s accusations. This is an example of recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation that seeks to discredit high-profile individuals in the West who are strongly critical of the Kremlin’s domestic and foreign policies.
Pro-Kremlin disinformation has often targeted Bernard-Henry Lévy in recent years because of his highly critical views of the Putin regime, and his endorsement of popular protests against authoritarian governments in various parts of the world including in the former Soviet Union (for example, he was present in Kiev during the Euromaidan protests). Lévy has been accused by pro-Kremlin outlets of being an “ideologist of the liberal world order” who has plotted to overthrow Qaddafi in Libya, trained the Islamist opposition in Libya and the protesters in Maidan, and incited war in Syria.
Pro-Kremin media outlets have described Lévy as a “salesman” who “sells” the international military adventures of the “global élite” to Western audiences, as an intellectual closely linked to Europe’s technocratic-financial élite, as the theoretician of the war in Libya, the intellectual sponsor of the “West’s military aggression against Syria”, and a supporter in Ukraine of “ rebels financed by the West to destabilise a sovereign state” during the Euromaidan protests.
Lévy has recently again become a target of pro-Kremlin disinformation because of his meeting with Svetlana Tikhanovskaya and his endorsement of the popular protests in Belarus. He is being depicted as an “agent of the Western neo-liberal agenda involved in regime-change efforts in Belarus.
