The Representation of Russia to the EU addressed the European Parliament with nine questions regarding the situation with Alexey Navalny. Diplomats pointed to inconsistencies in the version about the blogger’s poisoning.
The appeal was published on September 15 on the website of the Russian mission.
Russian diplomats emphasized the illogicality of the accusations against Moscow.
“Is there any rational sense in poisoning of Alexey Navalny with nerve agent, falling under Convention on Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, in Russian city with population of half million people, so that then to make maximum efforts to save him and send him to Germany for treatment, so that this ” Novichok” could be detected there”? – in particular, the document says.
Alexey Navalny felt bad during the flight Tomsk-Moscow on August 20. The plane landed in Omsk in an emergency, the blogger was hospitalized in Omsk, and was taken to the clinic “Charite” in Berlin on August 22.
Russian doctors during the examination did not find traces of poisonous substances in Navalny’s body, but in Berlin they assured that the Russian “has signs” of intoxication by the substance from the group of cholinesterase inhibitors.
