President Vladimir Putin has denied Russia’s role in the attempted assassination of opposition leader Alexey Navalny. He claimed that the investigative media Bellingcat’s report was false. Putin made this remark at a press conference on Thursday. This information came from the report of the British Media Guardian.
On 20 August, Navalny was returning to Moscow by plane from Tomsk, Siberia. He suddenly fell ill in the middle of the sky. Emergency landing was started in Omsk city without seeing the way. Navalny’s condition deteriorated and was taken to Berlin, Germany. The doctors there confirmed the poison application after investigation.
A recent Bellingcat report said that spies of President Vladimir Putin used poison twice to kill Alexei Navalny. According to intelligence sources, a second attempt was made to poison the Navalis sent from Russia to Germany for medical purposes. But that attempt failed. According to the Bellingcat report, members of the Russian intelligence service ASB are responsible for these efforts.
At a news conference on Thursday, Vladimir Putin said, “Who needs poison?” If the members of the FSB had wanted, they would probably have finished their work. ‘
The Russian president has accused the US intelligence agencies of leaking documents related to Navalny. He says this means that the patient is supported by the US intelligence service in Berlin.
