DISINFO: Navalny's poisoning was a set up against Russia
Moscow has reasons to believe that the alleged poisoning of Alexei Navalny was a set up. Germany has not presented any credible evidence that Russia poisoned Navalny with Novichok despite Moscow’s repeated calls.
Russian opposition figure 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 had been transferred to Berlin and has 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 while inside 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 the body of politician Alexei Navalny. The same was confirmed by the OPCW(opens in a new tab) (which Russia is also a member of).
Read similar disinformation cases alleging that the Navalny poisoning could be a strategy of the West to introduce anti-Russian sanctions, that there is no evidence of Navalny poisoning, West wants to stop Nord Stream 2 and that another reason would be found for sanctions if there had been no Navalny.
