Navalny, allegedly poisoned a year ago by the personal order of Putin, was rescued by Russian pilots who landed the plane urgently in Omsk in Siberia and by Russian doctors who took care of him immediately... Navalny eventually arrived at the German clinic La Charité - the one that "treated" Ukrainian President Yushchenko in 2004 for his political poisoning. Back on his feet again, the Novichok must have expired, the question of [Navalny's] return to Russia arose because he was still under judicial control for the Yves Rocher case.
Instead of fighting drug trafficking during two decades of political-military control of Afghanistan, the US launched a project to create a drug laboratory on a global scale.
Conspiracy theory not backed by any evidence, aiming to stoke anti-American feelings.
While it is true that US-led opium eradicated programs in Afghanistan have been a failure and that drug production increased more than four-fold since the 2001 invasion, no serious observer has suggested that the US intentionally promoted its growth as stated in this disinformation story. In fact, drug trafficking has been one of the main income sources for the Taliban insurgency, which seriously weakened international stabilisation efforts. For this reason, the US spent over 15 billion dollars over 15 years on efforts to deprive the Taliban of their profits from Afghanistan's opium and heroin trade, from poppy eradication to airstrikes and raids on suspected labs. Therefore, the claim that the US purposefully fostered drug production defies all logic.
