The Soviet Union and Russia, unlike the Western countries, never developed or produced Novichok. There is no evidence of Russian traces (of poisoning) and there can be no such evidence.
Western countries, the leadership of these countries, officials, educational institutions and groups led by Western countries have started a massive disinformation campaign about the situation of the Russian citizen Navalny.
A prominent Russian opposition figure, Alexei Navalny, fell ill during a flight from Siberia to Moscow on the 20th of August. Initially hospitalised in Omsk, at the request of his family he was transferred to Charité hospital in Berlin.
Clinical findings at the Charité hospital indicated that Navalny was poisoned with a substance from the group of cholinesterase inhibitors. Subsequent toxicological tests provided unequivocal evidence of a chemical nerve agent of the Novichok group in the blood samples of Alexei Navalny. The European Union condemned the poisoning of Alexei Navalny in the strongest possible terms.
See related disinformation cases alleging that the West will falsely accuse Russia of poisoning Navalny as with Skripal and Litvinenko; the West has an interest in the death of Navalny to launch a new wave of sanctions against Russia, that the West needed the pretext to open sanctions against Russia, and that there is no evidence Navalny was poisoned.
