Bellingcat journalist Hristo Grozev has posted a travel database of Navalny’s alleged poisoners. It contains more than five hundred movements by train and airplane

Bellingcat journalist Hristo Grozev made public information about the trips of alleged participants in the assassination attempt on politician Alexei Navalny. The file is available in Excel spreadsheet format in Google Docs.

The database contains information about dates, destinations and vehicles on which trips were made. It contains the movements of ten people – eight of them appeared in the initial investigation by Bellingcat and The Insider about the poisoning of Navalny, two more – employees of the Institute of Forensic Science of the FSB Vasily Kalashnikov (he was mentioned among the participants in the operation by Konstantin Kudryavtsev during a conversation with Navalny) and Dmitry Lazarevich ( its role in the poisoning is not specified). 

In total, the database contains information on 565 trips. Most of them were made by Ivan Osipov, who also used the pseudonym “Spiridonov” – 158.

On the eve of Grozev, announcing the publication of the data, he said that two trips would be removed from the database, on which Bellingcat is now conducting some investigations. The journalist noted that the publication of information about them could jeopardize investigations.
