“This is a planned action against Russia.” Volodin – about the poisoning of Navalny

Chairman of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Viacheslav Volodin believes that Germany’s statement about the poisoning of Alexei Navalny with poison from the Novichok group “increasingly proves that this is a planned action against Russia,” the purpose of which is to impose sanctions against the Russian Federation and “try to restrain the development of our country.” Volodin’s statement was published on the State Duma website.

The speaker of parliament called the obvious parallel between the poisoning of Navalny and the  attempt on the life of Sergei and Yulia Skripal in 2018. In his opinion, Russia was accused of poisoning the Skripals as part of an “obvious provocation” aimed at extending sanctions against Russia.

Volodin said that after Navalny became ill, the Russian authorities from the first minutes “did everything to save a person’s life, regardless of his views and political preferences.” But after the oppositionist was transported to Germany for treatment, “everything began to develop according to the scenario of a cynical policy,” he said.

“In Germany, Navalny was immediately called the chancellor’s guest and began to make statements. They agreed to the point that he was allegedly poisoned with a nerve agent. At the same time, the question is quite obvious: why should Russia wish for Navalny’s death if our country did everything to save his life? ” – said Volodin.

The State Duma speaker added that Russia has not received information from Germany about Navalny’s condition. Volodin stressed that if something happens to Navalny in Germany, it could be an organized provocation. “The life of a Russian citizen is in jeopardy,” he said.

On September 2, the German government  announced that Alexei Navalny had been poisoned in Russia with a nerve agent from the Novichok group. This conclusion was reached after analyzes carried out in the laboratory of the Bundeswehr, the German army.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Germany would discuss Navalny’s poisoning with NATO and EU partners to decide on a joint response.

The Ukrainian authorities, after the statement of the German government, called for the introduction of sanctions against Russia.

    You didn’t seem too concerned about the condition of this Russian citizen (you have been ordered not to mention by name) before he went to Germany.

  • MOSCOW, September 3 – RIA Novosti. The leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Gennady Zyuganov, considers the allegations that Alexei Navalny was allegedly poisoned by Novichok, untrue and provocative, and notes that “the Anglo-Saxons continue to play the reactionary card.”

    I do not know who poisoned Navalny and whether he was poisoned at all.

    There is no more reason to believe the German special services than there is any.

    In the absence of hard facts, a person always chooses whom to believe, based solely on his own sympathies and preferences.

    That is why I prefer to trust mine. Including Omsk doctors.

    But the fact that if Navalny had been poisoned by order of the collective management, who would have released him to Germany, is an indisputable fact.

  • Andrey Lugovoy, WELLKNOWN SALISBURY CATHEDRAL TOURIST……………….

    MOSCOW, September 2. / TASS /. Alexei Navalny could have been poisoned with a nerve agent of the Novichok group only in the German clinic Charite, accusations against Russia contradict common sense. This opinion on Wednesday in an interview with a TASS correspondent was expressed by a member of the State Duma Committee on Security and Anti-Corruption Andrei Lugovoi.

    In Germany, they announced the fact of Navalny’s poisoning. What is known about this case
    “If something related to Novichok was found there, then most likely it was introduced to him in this clinic,” Lugovoy said. “A nurse, a doctor could leave any mark if they wanted to really mark Navalny in some way with poison substance. I’m sure that’s exactly what happened. ”

    In his opinion, the version about poisoning by Novichok in Russia is devoid of any logic. “I assess the likelihood [of such a poisoning] as completely absent from the point of view of elementary common sense. That is, they poisoned, they themselves handed them over to find that they were poisoned,” the parliamentarian said. “If someone worked at the state level, especially, the way would be how to avoid and explain this,” he commented on the accusations against Moscow.

    The deputy regards the incident as another provocation by external forces and a “brilliant story” for discrediting German-Russian relations. At the same time, he believes, Berlin could have been misled about Navalny’s poisoning. “First of all, we must demand as much as possible the transfer of all the documents that Germany has in this regard. The Prosecutor General’s Office is doing this,” Lugovoi stressed.

    The parliamentarian also considers it unrealistic that the Novichok group’s poisonous substances could fall into the hands of Navalny’s ill-wishers, who are not connected with government agencies.

        • Putin is deliberately playing games with the West. If he had wanted Navalny dead, that would have been that. He allowed Navalny to go to Germany, knowing full well the Novichok would be found. Now he is waiting for the response, knowing it will be feeble at best.

  • “The government can condemn the poisoning of Putin critic Navalny ‘in the strongest terms possible’,” said a Bild editorial on Thursday. “It can show its ‘dismay’. It can ‘urgently’ call on the Kremlin to explain itself. But as long as it acts in collusion with Putin on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, all these declarations are just empty words”.
