The Russian neo-liberal opposition has once again demonstrated that it is ready to use any dirty tricks and even use children for its own political purposes. The leaders of these pro-Western groups are in fact not associate themselves with the Russian state and the Russian nation and use populist and anti-government rhetoric just as a tool of serving interests of their foreign sponsors as well as increasing their own wealth.
The German government acted as a producer of Navalny’s film. With governmental escort and protection to film in Dresden, with provision of secret services material, with a conscious intention to create a provocation. Additionally all possibilities of cooperation for editing. The film is a co-production, with a goal to create an information bomb and cause troubles in Russia. Then, like a messenger, Navalny was sent to Russia with a task and promised political cover.
The disinformation message refers to investigation published by Alexei Navalny into the wealth of Vladimir Putin. The insight's of Navalny's investigation were widely shared by the international media.
Alexei Navalny has founded and runs "Fund for Fighting Corruption" (FBK) , an NGO which investigates large-scale government corruption. Since 2011, FBK conducted dozens of investigations, the results of which are publicly available.
There is no basis to the claims that Alexei Navalny was tasked or helped by the German government to conduct his investigation.
Navalny was transported to Germany in a serious medical condition after poisoning with Novichok type military grade nerve agent. Since Alexei Navalny was a target of poison attack, the German government considered it necessary to provide him with personal protection during his stay in the country.
See related previous disinformation claims, alleging that Navalny is helped by Western secret services; that neo-liberal forces behind navalny will intensify their attempts to destroy Russia; that the West used "Navalny affair" to impose sanctions against Russia, that Germany controls Alexei Navalny.
The disinformation message appeared in the same broadcast as a claims that NATO secret services made a blunder in their script for Navalny, that the Kremlin was unfoundedly accused of Navalny’s poisoning, and that Russia jailed people for high-level corruption, whereas the US, UK and Europe didn't.
