DISINFO: Navalny uses his own poisoning to promote himself
Navalny “feeds” on the topic of Putin – without Putin, there is no Navalny, because, in this situation, his activities lose all their meaning. Navalny uses the current situation in all possible ways in order to promote himself. That is why all of his statements and comments are worth nothing. It is difficult to understand why the European Union addresses the issue of Navalny relying on some groundless declarations – there is no evidence confirming these claims. Navalny is an oppositionist, who has his own life plan – such countries as Germany and France should not take any actions only because Navalny made some claims. It is not the reason for the EU to introduce next sanctions against Russia relying on some statements of Navalny.
This message is a conspiracy theory advancing recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the poisoning of Alexey Navalny. A prominent Russian opposition figure Alexey 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. Since then he has been transferred to Berlin and is receiving treatment at Berlin’s Charite 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 Alexei Navalny. The European Union condemned the poisoning of Alexei Navalny in the strongest possible terms.
