Le Monde: Putin, in an interview with Macron, suggested that Navalny himself could have received Novichok

Russian President Vladimir Putin, during a conversation with French President Emmanuel Macron, suggested that the Russian politician Alexei Navalny, for an unspecified reason, could have taken poison from the Novichok group himself. This was reported by the French newspaper Le Monde, citing its own information. From what sources this information was obtained is not specified.

Emmanuel Macron, during the conversation, rejected the assumption that Navalny himself was poisoned with a nerve agent from the Novichok group.

The telephone conversation between Putin and Macron took place on September 14 at the initiative of the French side. During the conversation, according to Le Monde, the Russian president called Navalny “a simple Internet troublemaker ” and said that the Anti-Corruption Foundation, founded by the oppositionist, was blackmailing parliamentarians and officials.

Putin also said that Novichok has a less complex roster than previously stated. The Russian president offered to check the version that what happened with Navalny is connected with Latvia, where one of the developers of Novichk lives (whom Putin was talking about is not clear). Macron rejected the Latvian trace, Le Monde points out.

During the conversation, Macron told Putin that French experts had confirmed that Navalny had been poisoned with a substance from the Novichok group.

    Of course he could, it’s readily available over the counter at all Muscovy pharmacies. Just ask for a bottle of the Putler poison.

    Why have an interview with a known pathological liar and an organized crime figure? What are they hoping to learn from this?

    • Re the ‘c’mon man’ quote: I deleted it and the entire post, which was a comedy vid about Biden. I deleted it because on second thoughts it is perhaps not wise to put satirical articles about him because he may become president. Someone reposted the ‘Here are some questions for Joe Biden’ article from townhall.com and I politely requested that he stress to his readers that it was originally from a US site and no connection with Ukraine. Because of course Ukraine is desperately in need of US help regardless of who wins in November.
