What is happening in Minsk is primarily a Polish project. Warsaw is behind the ongoing protests of its neighbours, it provides political and media support to the leaders of the Belarusian opposition. The result, however, is impressive in an exclusively negative sense: only the phenomenon of “President Sveta” (this is how Svyatlana Tsikhanoeskaya’s instagram is called) can serve as an example of how not to do it as political technology.
Western media immediately talked about a poisoning of Alexei Navalny because of their anti-Kremlin bias. They didn’t use the conditional mode or corrected their coverage when the Russian medical team excluded the hypothesis of poisoning. There are two contradictory versions, but only one story against the Kremlin in the media.
Recurrent pro-Kremlin narrative that aims at impairing credibility of leading media and avoiding the Navalny case. The poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was confirmed in three independent laboratories. 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. There aren't two side to the story. The unknown trouble of metabolism that lead to hypoglycaemia - which is the alternative RT says did not get enough attention from Western media - was a way to talk about poisoning effects without naming the cause, as doctors commented.
