Russia alleges opposition critic Navalny could have been poisoned in Germany or on plane

Published on November 12, 2020 by

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on Thursday alleged that opposition critic Alexei Navalny, who fell ill on a flight in Russia in August and was airlifted to Germany for treatment, could have been poisoned in Germany or on the plane to Moscow.

Blood samples taken from Navalny confirmed the presence of a Novichok nerve agent, the global Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said.

The poisoning has worsened relations between Russia and the West, with the European Union and Britain imposing sanctions in response. Russia has denied any involvement in the poisoning of Navalny.
