During a meeting with Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko reported about the interception of a conversation between Warsaw and Berlin that statements by German Chancellor Angela Merkel about the poisoning of blogger Alexei Navalny are falsifications.
The Belarusian leader promised to hand over the recording of the conversation.
On September 2 German authorities published a statement that a special laboratory of the Bundeswehr allegedly found “unequivocal evidence” of chemical substance of nerve action of “Novichok” group in samples of Navalny’s coma in German clinic “Charite”.
After that, European Council President Charles Michel promised that EU member states would consider the possible consequences for Moscow due to the situation with Navalny.
In turn, the Russian Foreign Ministry called Berlin’s statements about the alleged poisoning of Navalny another information campaign against Russia, as they are not supported by facts.
