Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about Alexei Navalny and Western Russophobia. The claim that Navalny is somehow used by Europe or secrete elites for the political destabilisation of Russia is disinformation.
The attack on opposition leader Alexei Navalny on August 20, 2020 is not an anti-Russian project and is explained with a lot of evidence.
Alexei Navalny fell ill during a flight and the plane had to make an emergency landing in Omsk, where doctors said he was in a coma and they were trying to save his life. From Omsk, he was transferred to Berlin, where he received treatment at Berlin's Charité Hospital. The German federal government said that toxicological tests provided “unequivocal evidence of a chemical nerve agent of the Novichok group” in the blood samples of Navalny.
In fact, Alexei Navalny was the victim of an attack with a chemical nerve agent, executed in Russia. On 14 September, the German government provided research by two more independent laboratories in France and Sweden, which confirmed the presence of poison from the Novichok group in his body. The same was confirmed by the OPCW (which Russia is also a member of).
On 14 December 2020, a special investigation by Bellingcat, The Insider, CNN and Der Spiegel identified members of the Russian FSB unit involved in the attempt on Navalny’s life. According to The New York Times, the report was also consistent with the information on the case gathered by German intelligence services. Bellingcat also provided a detailed account of the methods used to identify the FSB operatives. A week later, on 21 December, Navalny disclosed a recorded conversation in which a member of the suspected FSB poisoning squad describes how his unit carried out, and attempted to clean up evidence of, his poisoning.
The European Union has sanctioned six individuals and one Russian entity over the use of chemical weapons in an assassination attempt on the Russian opposition figure.
Read similar cases alleging that the West invented Navalny’s poisoning to uphold the myth of an aggressive Russia, that the West fabricated the story about Navalny being poisoned, that Navalny's poisoning was a set up against Russia, and that The Western Navalny project to destabilise Russia has failed.
