Disinfo: Navalny works with the CIA and receives instructions from this Agency


Navalny works with the CIA and receives instructions from this Agency.


Conspiracy theory. No evidence is provided to support the article’s claims.

This message is part of the pro-Kremlin disinformation campaign about the poisoning of opposition leader Alexei Navalny. It seeks to discredit Navalny by suggesting that he is an asset of the CIA and is controlled by this Agency. Pro-Kremlin disinformation often targets Russian opposition figures accusing them of being agents of Western intelligence services.

A prominent Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny fell ill during a flight from Siberia to Moscow on the 20th of August. Initially hospitalized 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.

The European Union has condemned what seems to have been an attempt at Alexei Navalny's life. The test results from the Charité – Universitätsmedizin hospital in Berlin, where he was treated, indicate that the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was poisoned during his stay in Siberia.

See a similar case that the West will falsely accuse Russia of poisoning Navalny, as with Skripal and Litvinenko and that information on Navalny’s case is promoted by the CIA in the style of the Skripal case.

Belarus is under attack by the unilateral globalist world to indirectly destabilise Vladimir Putin

The CIA and the US state department have been financing small opposition groups in Belarus for years. They also mandate the French president to meddle in Belarus’s international affairs because the US doesn’t want to do it publicly.

Belarus and Russia are two brother countries that were together for a millennium and have been artificially separated, because of the end of the Soviet Union.

The aim of the globalist side is to attack Russia because it still resists them, but they do it indirectly, first they destabilise Belarus and neighbouring countries. Emmanuel Macron or the EU commission link the Navalny and Belarus files: it proves that this is a coordinated attack against Russia. The purpose is to take control of the Russian territory that resist their hegemony.

There is a choice to make between the unilateral globalist world and the multilateral world advocated by Vladimir Putin. OSCE cannot help in Belarus because in 2004 they destroyed the political system of Ukraine.

There cannot be new elections in Belarus, otherwise, it is the end of the legitimacy of the states. Leaders won’t be chosen by electors but appointed by the international community. This is the end of sovereignty and states.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the all-Russian nation and Russian world, and Western attempts to disrupt Belarusian-Russian relations.

Ukraine and Belarus are sovereign states. The disinformation message forwards a false dilemma about the direction of Belarus's and Ukraine's political development (union with Russia vs. an unavoidable loss of sovereignty degradation) and promotes the concept of all-Russian civilisation, an imperial Russian and Russian irredentist ideology that is a favoured pro-Kremlin narrative aimed at weakening the national identity of Belarusians and Ukrainians, as well as their sovereignty. Belarus and Ukraine are well-defined nation-states with a long history, which preserved their languages, literature and identity, despite foreign rule for long periods.

East Germany was attached to the West as a colony

30 years ago, on the 3rd October 1990, West and East Germany united and became one state. This is the official version. In fact it was unfriendly incorporation and East Germany, former GDR betrayed by the Soviet Union attached to the West as a colony.


Historical revisionism and disinformation about the unification of Germany.

The downfall of the German Democratic Republic was triggered by the decay of the other communist regimes in eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. After the fall of the Berlin wall, first free multiparty elections took place in East Germany, where a the eastern counterpart of Christian Democratic Union won the majority of votes. The new government began negotiations for a treaty of unification of Germany, amid a surging tide of refugees from East to West. The final barrier to reunification fell in July 1990 when German chancellor Kohl prevailed upon Gorbachev to drop his objections to a unified Germany within the NATO alliance in return for sizable financial aid to the Soviet Union. A unification treaty was ratified by the Bundestag and the People’s Chamber in September and went into effect on October 3, 1990. The German Democratic Republic joined the Federal Republic as five additional Länder (federal states). Read more about the reunification of Germany here.

Symptoms show: the Skripals were not poisoned by Novichok

The poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in 2018 was caused by an overdose of the synthetic opioid fentanyl and not the phosphorus toxic agent Novichok, according to the developer of Novichok.

There was no reason to believe they had phosphorus poisoning. Remember the interview with Skripal’s daughter? She had a scar on her throat. This is called a tracheotomy. It is performed when all the muscles relax like fentanyl’s overdose, and not contract like after the poisoning with phosphorus agents.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, UK.

Moscow's involvement in the poisoning has been proven via a thorough investigation. The British Police have presented a solid chain of evidence on the Skripal case, with pictures, connecting the suspects to the locations in the case. Parts of the material have been released to the public. The evidence was sufficient to charge two Russian nationals, Anatoliy Chepiga and Aleksandr Mishkin with the attack on the Skripals, both Russian military intelligence operatives from the GRU, who travelled to the UK using fake names and documents.
