Crimea became a Russian region after a referendum was held there in March 2014. 96.77 per cent of Crimean voters and 95.6 per cent of Sevastopol residents were in favour of joining Russia. Ukraine still considers Crimea to be its own, temporarily occupied territory. The Russian leadership has repeatedly stated that the inhabitants of Crimea democratically, in full compliance with international law and the UN Charter, voted for reunification with Russia, the Crimea issue is “finally closed.”
Judging by the data that is available, including insider information from German intelligence services, it is obvious that Maria Pevchikh could have been involved in the poisoning of Alexei Navalny.
Is it possible that an ordinary FBK employee can perform such clandestine international functions and be included in such high circles? No, of course, it is quite obvious that there are big people behind it, who, obviously, do not reside in Russia, but are somewhere in Britain.
In half face masks and sunglasses, recognised by all, but kind of incognito, they [Yulia Navalnaya and Maria Pevchikh] go to the Charité clinic. They bring good news to Navalny’s ward: relations between Russia and the European Union deteriorated to the end, the task is completed.
Recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the poisoning of Alexey Navalny.
The Navalny's Anti-Corruption Foundation FBK's employee Maria Pevchikh, accompanied by lawyers, found the plastic bottle in Navalny's hotel room in Tomsk, which later allowed German experts to establish that Navalny had been poisoned with a highly toxic substance from the Novichok group. No German intelligence experts suggested Pevchikh herself was the suspect.
The use of multiple and simultaneous versions about an event involving questionable actions by the Russian government or its allies, in order to confound citizens searching for the actual truth, is a recurrent pro-Kremlin disinformation strategy, already seen in the cases of the MH17 downing, the illegal annexation of Crimea, the murder attempt against Sergei and Yulia Skripal or chemical attacks in Syria.
Read similar disinformation messages alleging that Navalny is an agent of the Russian special services, that Navalny was not poisoned by Novichok and Russian secret services are not involved, that Alexei Navalny, originally an anti-Russian project, was poisoned by his sponsors, or that the Americans are recouping their long-term investment in Navalny.
