DISINFO: Evidence shows: Kara-Murza was not poisoned
The FBI has shared with the American propaganda radio station Radio Liberty data about the case of Vladimir Kara-Murza. He is an American citizen, Khodorkovsky’s closest ally, a former messenger, an errand boy and a messenger of Russophobic Senator McCain, is also close to another Russophobic Senator Ben Cardina, co-author of the anti-Russian Magnitsky sanctions. Kara-Murza has been writing for six years and says that Putin personally gave instructions to poison him. Through the court, the activist received the publication of the results of the FBI investigation, they were published in part, and it is already clear, written in black and white: there was no poisoning. Presumably, there will be no apology from Kara-Murza.
Journalist Vladimir Kara-Murza, who works for pro-democracy group Open Russia, became ill in February 2017. According to the media reports, the official diagnosis in his hospital notes was a "toxic action by an unidentified substance". Read more here.
This pro-Kremlin disinformation outlet misrepresents Radio Liberty's report titled "Mystery over Russian’s suspected poisoning deepens with new FBI records". This case revolves around a decision by the District of Columbia court, according to which the US Department of Justice is obliged to provide Kara-Murza with documents by October 15, 2020, but, as Radio Liberty says, the Ministry has already stated that they won't have time to deliver the documents by this date. Some of the documents, about 400 pages long, were indeed declassified and handed over to Kara-Murza, but the ministry said that about 1,100 more pages were found. The documents handed over to Kara-Murza contain the results of analyses carried out by the FBI laboratory in Quantico. They did not find anything but a high content of barium in the urine. But after that, the samples were sent to Livermore National Laboratory - one of four American laboratories certified by the OPCW for the analysis of biological materials. The results of the second study are still classified. Radio Liberty, to which the disinformation outlet refers, does not claim that "there was no poisoning".
