Germany Says Kremlin Critic Navalny Was Poisoned With Novichok

"This has given rise to some very serious questions that only Russia can and must answer" German Chancellor Angela Merkel said.

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was poisoned with a substance from the deadly Novichok family, the German government said Wednesday, demanding explanations from Moscow. “The Russian government is urged to explain the incident ... the substance in Navalny’s organism is undoubtedly from the Novichok family," said government spokesman Steffen Seibert in a statement. Prominent Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny remains in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator more than a week after falling violently ill on a flight from Siberia to Moscow. Navalny, 44, has been receiving treatment in Germany after spending two days in a Siberian hospital where Russian doctors ruled out that the de facto leader of Russia’s opposition was poisoned.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday demanded answers from Russia over the case. "This has given rise to some very serious questions that only Russia can and must answer," Merkel said, adding that "the intent was to silence him." EU chief Ursula von der Leyen denounced what she called the "despicable and cowardly" act and said those responsible should be brought to justice. The White House said it is "deeply troubled" by Navalny's poisoning. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said it was "outrageous" that Navalny had been poisoned with a nerve agent and urged Moscow to "explain" what had happened. "We have seen first-hand the deadly consequences of Novichok in the UK," Johnson said on Twitter.

Once again the Vladimir Putin regime tries to murder a Russian activist. Only this time it was Russia's most internationally well known activist.

On the one hand, this brazen assassination attempt on Alexei Navalny is shocking. On the other hand, the pariah Putin regime has never shied away from murder as a political tool.

Absolute nonsense.

If Putin wanted Navalny dead he would be dead.

He certainly wouldn't have been allowed to fly to Germany for the Novichuk story to be discovered.

Moreover, there are hundreds of ways to kill someone without using the West's favourite poison agent.


So, clearly this story is a nonsense to any thinking person.


Who benefits from this latest Western sham?

Answer ........ Trump, the MIC, NATO.

You clearly haven't learned the lesson yet that any denial from the Kremlin, coming via whichever channel (including your keyboard), serves as evidence. Intentionally so.

That's really all YOU are good for on here and it ain't much now, is it?

What does it feel like, just as a matter of interest, to spend your time with lying for money?

And since you're no doubt going to repeat you dishonest question from elsewhere in here:

Kremlin doctors can hardly come up with the truth, if they want their careers and possibly health to remain unimpaired.

This way the word is out and the Kremlin can go into its own perpetual denial as it is prone to do, conveniently blaming the Western propaganda to the point of (as we now get to hear) accusing the Berlin doctors of having poisoned Navalny themselves.

Furthermore I have no tolerance for Moscow shills especially when they lie as continuously as you have been doing about the Kremlin criminals ever since you joined.

As little as for a Russian administration that consists primarily of a KGB thug beholden to an Oligarch crime syndicate that is just as much beholden to him.

Work for them in whatever capacity and only contempt will be your gain here.

It is difficult to say what is more surprising - the stupidity of Western "partners", who in their economic and political struggle with Russia resort each time to the same vile techniques, or their arrogance: why invent something new, if the population of the West is sufficiently zombified about Russia to behave like Pavlov's dog, "correctly" reacting at the given signal. In both cases, the actions of the West are disgusting and simply dangerous.

The regime poisoned the video blogger with a Novichok, then saved him in hospital and sent him to Germany to reveal everything and impose sanctions. Sounds logical, the idiots will eat it up.
Have you noticed that the doctors from Charite have withdrawn from statements. The version about "Novichok" comes from military medics from the Bundeswehr. People there are military men: they were told to find "Novichok" - they found it.

By the way, on the day of arrival, the patient was taken in an ambulance with the inscription "Bundeswehr"...
The "novichok" was obviously defective. Or the German toxicologists are so taugh compared to the British that they decided to limit themselves to an ad on the door of the ward, asking to close the door.
google tell me where i am

I wonder if the airport in Novosibirsk will be demolished now? And the hospital in Omsk? You remember the precautions taken in Salisbury against the traces of the mythical " Novichok"? Civilized Europeans would not play a circus with sawing out a bench and euthanizing a cat? Or they will?..
Death squads are no good anymore... From dozens of ways to eliminate an unwanted blogger, they allegedly choose a poison, and from thousands of poisons - the one that does not kill, but is determined in tests after a week.
And who would release Navalny from the country at the first request, if he, as the sect of his fans claims, was poisoned with the participation of special services?

Exactly right.


But don't expect the western shills to actually answer any of these questions.

In Salisbury the entire town was de-contaminated for months given how dangerous Novichuk is. And of course it allegedly killed Dawn Sturgess weeks later via a bottle found in a bin.

In Berlin it's a different story.



This is all about stopping Nordstream 2 and Russia has been framed.

Exactly.

Strange how the German military took over and the usual US cheer-leader states were all readily prepared with their co-ordinated accusations and demands.

The US attacked a critic of the RUSSIAN government with RUSSIAN chemical weapons.... And this makes sense to you?


If Novichuk was involved, then there would be a lot more than Navalny who would be seriously ill.


Like some of the aircraft passengers and crew.


Like Navalny's travelling entourage.


Of course, there is no evidence of Novichuk provided. Can't you guys come up with a more credible lie than this pantomime farce?

More nonsense talk.

World leaders are demanding answers from the Kremlin after toxicological examinations indicated that the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was poisoned with a nerve agent from the novichok family.

Given the choice between believing German government statements or Kremlin statements, most people will go with the German government statements every time.

The Kremlin lost all credibility long, long ago.

Exactly. USA has the same chemical agent. Nawalny is a 5% idiot who plays no role in Russia. Merkel made clear Nordstream II will be build. Its obvious that US threats against the project failed. So Nawalny gets poisoned, Putin allows him to leave to be treated in Germany amd Norbert Röttgen, a american sponsored crooks first statement is, that now Nordstream II must be stopped.

Its so obvious it hurts.

Conspiracy Theorists see things that don't exist in the real world.

Putin has had people attacked before.

Who profits from scaring and/or killing journalists critical of the Putin regime?

You can take the man out of the KGB but you can't take the KGB out of the man.

Its that simple.

The US crooks were a bit to quick to bring Nordstream II up. Its a bit too obvious.

Not everything is about Germany.

No, but evrything is about money.

USA is desperate to bring LNG to Germany. USA invested billions into the infrastructure and now has massive losses. The completion of Nordstream II means, that american LNG will be dead here.

Letting Nawalny jump over the Wupper is a small price compared to past crimes USA did for business.

For Nawalny is bitter though, i assume that USA will pull his plug soon. He obviously is more worth dead now for USA than alive.

Btw i keep hearing how deadly Nowischock is...yet it appears nobody dies from this stuff.

The stuff we germans invented actually worked.

Navalny of course is not a threat to Putin and never has been.


Navalny has never been elected to anything, his support is languishing and less than 5%.


Navalny is far more popular in the West than in Russia.


Navalny is not the 'leading opposition' figure - he's a foreign puppet with dubious views and dubious behaviour.


In the real world outside the western bubbles, everybody can see what you point out. If Novichuk had been used then Navalny would be dead and the people around him on the aircraft would be seriously ill. The whole story is falling flat and it looks like the West is talking to itself in its echo chamber - but the international community has got the measure of the group of states that lied about WMD in Iraq in order ot start a murderous disastrous war.

Americans - nobody listens to you people any more. Your image is tarnished beyond repair.
