The United States will intervene in the 2021 Russian legislative elections for the State Duma in 2021, as it has always done in past Russian elections.
The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has been a hostage of Western geopolitical interests in the case of the alleged poisoning of Alexei Navalny. Russia has requested its assistance but has not received any response for the last two months.
Clinical findings at the Charité hospital where the Russian opposition leader was transferred after he was poisoned in Omsk indicated that Navalny was poisoned with a chemical nerve agent of the Novichok group.
"[t]he biomarkers of the cholinesterase inhibitor found in Mr Navalny’s blood and urine samples have similar structural characteristics to the toxic chemicals belonging to schedules 1.A.14 and 1.A.15."
This is not the first time that pro-Kremlin outlets try to discredit OPCW by using disinformation tactics.
According to the OPCW's Director-General, the organisation has been targeted by a disinformation campaign when it granted new powers to assign blame for chemical attacks. 18 countries issued a joint statement, which called for an end to the unacceptable Russian defamation of the OPCW.
