“We don’t read medical publications.” Peskov – about an article in The Lancet about the poisoning of Navalny
The Kremlin did not read the article in The Lancet, in which the doctors of the Berlin clinic “Charite” told how the politician Alexei Navalny was treated for poisoning by “Novichok”.
“We do not read medical publications,” Dmitry Peskov, press secretary of the Russian President, told reporters.
According to Peskov, despite the article in the magazine, information about Navalny’s poisoning is not publicly available. “We still didn’t get it,” said the president’s press secretary.
Peskov rejected the offer of journalists to order the analysis of the article to Russian doctors, saying: “We see no sense in this.”
Russian authorities deny both involvement in the poisoning of Navalny and the fact that he was poisoned with a substance from the Novichok group.
