The Baltic States and Poland are blowing Belarus up from the inside. The West loudly reproaches Russia for “interfering in the affairs of Belarus” – and this is at the very moment a number of Western countries brazenly put pressure on Belarusian society and the state. Vilnius faces two challenges. Firstly, position themselves as the main fighters against the Russian world (of which Lukashenka is considered a part, as well as the way the Belarusian president communicates with his people). Secondly, to actively make money on this positioning – given the deplorable state of the Lithuanian economy, the country really needs money. Warsaw needs an obedient (or better yet, a puppet) regime in Minsk to create an image of Poland as a regional power, thereby increasing its influence and opportunities within the European Union.
Professionals are also not silent. They bluntly say that the clinical picture of poisoning is different, “the Novichok” family, in principle, does not exist, and Berlin stubbornly refuses to cooperate and provide information that would at least somehow verify the statements it made. In general, the Federal Republic of Germany voiced a lie that was obvious to absolutely everyone, without even bothering to give it the appearance of plausibility. It raises an important question: why was it done this way? After all, it was possible to act somehow more gracefully. The answer lies on the surface: new sanctions are coming.
Conspiracy theory with no evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Aleksei Navalny's poisoning with multiple repeating claims: that the results of the medical investigation are manipulated, that there is a special operation against Russia to launch new sanctions, and that Germany does not share information with Russia on Navalny's health and investigation results. On September 2, the government of Germany stated that after a careful investigation it was established that Aleksei Navalny was poisoned by a substance from the Novichok group. The official statement reads:
"On behalf of the Charité University Medical Complex (Berlin), a specialised laboratory of the Bundeswehr carried out a toxicological analysis of samples taken from Aleksey Navalny. The analysis provided irrefutable evidence of the use of a nerve agent from the Novichok group. On August 22, Aleksey Navalny was taken to Germany by plane for treatment with symptoms of poisoning."
Members of the German Parliament told the press that the traces of Novichok were found in Navalny's blood, skin, and urine informs Der Spiegel. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Germany informed the Russian ambassador to Germany, the EU and NATO, on the results of the investigation. Germany also informs Russia via diplomatic channels on the progress of the investigation. 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 US used Navalny case to block Russian vaccine against COVID-19.
