The reality on the line of contact of forces in Donbas is frightening, the provocations of the Ukrainian military are not single, but multiple. Russia, not being a party to the conflict, cannot ensure a comprehensive ceasefire in Donbas, but uses its influence to implement agreements. Moscow has repeatedly stated that it is not a party to the internal Ukrainian conflict and is interested in Kyiv overcoming the political and economic crisis.
Berlin's continued silence on Navalny would be an admission of its own involvement in the incident.
The German authorities' continued silence on Russia's requests for cooperation on this issue would be tantamount to an admission of their involvement in the Navalny incident. Russia will continue to publicly seek understandable, factual answers from Berlin. If the German authorities continue to remain silent, they will only give a letter and seal for their own direct involvement in the incident with the Russian blogger.
Pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative on the poisoning of Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny suggesting that there is an alleged proof of "German" participation in the poisoning attempt.
According to the logic of the RT German article, Germany itself would be involved in the poisoning of Alexei Navalny, a claim that is made without evidence and is arbitrary speculation and disinformation. There is clear evidence that Navalny was already severely poisoned in Russia before he was transported to Germany. Implying that Germany poisoned Navalny is a manoeuvre designed to distract from Russian culpability in the poisoning of Navalny.
The prominent Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny fell ill during a flight from Siberia to Moscow on the 20th of August 2020. Initially hospitalised in Omsk, at the request of his family he was transferred to Charité hospital in Berlin.
At the request of the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, a specialist Bundeswehr laboratory carried out toxicological tests on samples from Alexei Navalny. The results of these tests have revealed unequivocal proof of the presence of a chemical nerve agent from the Novichok group.
By the time the EU sanctions were imposed, the fact of Navalny's poisoning with a Novichok-type agent had been solidly established and were later independently corroborated by labs in France and Sweden.
Russia keeps trying to question these results. However, indisputable evidence exists. After Germany requested its technical assistance, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), where Russia is a member, issued a statement verifying previous statements by the German authorities. Several reports have indicated that the OPCW tests showed that blood and urine samples contained a "cholinesterase inhibitor" similar to two Novichok chemicals that were banned by the Hague-based body in 2019. The OPCW findings corroborated earlier independent conclusions by German, French, and Swedish laboratories.
