Very good article about western MSM antirussian bias

By Glenn Diesen, an Associate Professor at the University of South-Eastern Norway and an editor at the Russia in Global Affairs journal. Follow him on Twitter @glenndiesen

 

When too many or nearly all parties benefit from a lie the truth could not survive.

Noviczok poisonings have too many parties benefiting from current narrative:

- Russian politicians with Putin himself cause it is easier for dictatorship to have strong external threat, Putin is just happy

- US politicians , most of them : this is safe old anti-Russia narrative, very safe cause again external culprit is a bad actor that destroys American world , Americans stay exceptional,

- Chinese just pop champagnes , too good to be true,

- Germany-Russia relations are close to Romeo and Juliet syndrome with US in a role of crazy parents.

- EU politicians have a good topic to talk about, again  very safe anti-Russia narrative

- The rest of the world do not care provided that spice ( Russian hydrocarbons) flows.

The major victim is Russian society cause they lose, but nobody cares.

I think if we did not have this poisonings in the first place they should be made up. 
And last but not least a very good story for lazy journalists . The other 0.5% of them are not happy but again who cares.

You never interview „former” that is  retired people. They are independent , can speak what they think is right.

You always interview „current” , cause these people will never risk their careers by speaking against the major narrative. It does not matter how stupid or ridiculous narrative is.

It is ABC of journalism.

The journalists that interview „former” people should be punished by Ministry of Truth.

The Great Novichok Poisoning Hoax 2.0

by Stephen Lendman

https://stephenlendman.org/2020/09/the-great-novichok-poisoning-hoax-2-0/

What’s going on regarding Alexey Navalny repeats the great 2018 poisoning by novichok of the Skripals in Britain hoax.

Whatever caused their illness, from which they recovered, had nothing to do with exposure to a deadly nerve agent, Russia falsely blamed for what it had nothing to do with.

What’s essential to explain, establishment media suppress time and again.

Whenever something like a Navalny incident occurs, they’re quick to blame Russia or other nations targeted by the US for regime change.

Whatever happened to Alexey Navalny wasn’t from exposure to a novichok nerve agent able to kill in minutes.

He’s very much alive and able to communicate three weeks after falling ill aboard a flight from Tomsk, Russia to Moscow.

Russia’s UN envoy Vassily Nebenzia explained what’s obvious, saying:

“This whole incident cannot but raise questions about some foul play being staged.”

Key is who benefits and who’s harmed. Russia clearly gained nothing from the Navalny incident.

Potentially it has much to loose. Nothing remotely connects the Kremlin to what happened to him.

On Friday, German BND Federal Intelligence Service head Bruno Kahl said a “secret meeting” was held on what he called a “harder” form of novichok the country’s military lab claims poisoned Navalny with no further elaboration, Der Spiegel reported, adding:

A delegation from the (pro-Western imperial tool) OPCW visited Navalny in Berlin’s Charite Hospital where he’s being treated.

In response to Reuters’ request for more information, a BND statement said the following:

“The Federal Intelligence Service will comment on any findings exclusively to the federal government and the responsible committees of the German Bundestag that meet in secret.”

In its latest edition, Der Spiegel reported the following:

“Leading politicians in Germany from all mainstream parties are demanding that construction on the natural gas pipeline Nord Stream 2 be suspended as a result of the poisoning of Alexey Navalny.” 

“Merkel’s government is so far resisting such calls,” adding:

It’s “clear that Germany’s relationship with Russia will change significantly.”

It’s “likely that the Kremlin was behind the poisoning (sic). And Russian President Vladimir Putin (sic).”

“(A) debate has erupted over which sanctions the German government should now consider applying.”

“The only penalty that would primarily hurt Moscow would be a construction stop on the almost completed Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline.”

Some members of “Merkel’s governing coalition…are increasingly demanding that the pipeline project be abandoned.”

“Within the government, however, that step remains off limits. Officially at least.”

Merkel supports its completion. At the same time, she seeks an EU response to what happened to Navalny.

Abandoning the project in favor of 30% more expensive US LNG will be economically harmful to Germany, what cool heads in the country and Merkel understand.

On Thursday, an EU Political and Security Committee meeting was held in Brussels, the Navalny issue discussed.

EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said the bloc is considering “restrictive measures” against Russia.

At the same time, his spokesman said as long as there’s uncertainty over who may be responsible for Navalny’s condition, discussing punitive measures is premature.

Without verifiable evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that does not exist, blaming Russia for what happened has no credibility.

EU officials in Berlin and Brussels admitted that numerous nations in Europe and elsewhere have access to novichok and other deadly toxins.

Despite nothing connecting Russia to Navalny’s condition, Pompeo blamed the Kremlin, saying the following:

“I think people all around the world will see this kind of activity for what it is (sic),” adding:

“And when they see the effort to poison a dissident, they recognize that there is a substantial chance that this actually came from Russia (sic).”

He declined to say how the Trump regime will respond.

DJT stressed that “(w)e haven’t had any proof yet but I will take a look.”

Russia’s Foreign Ministry slammed what it called “unfounded accusations and ultimatums,” accusing Berlin of using Navalny’s condition “as a pretext to discredit our country” unjustifiably.

In its latest edition, Germany’s DW news said “Berlin’s Justice Ministry on Friday approved a request from Moscow for legal assistance in the investigation of the suspected poisoning of opposition leader Alexei Navalny,” adding:

“Germany has tasked state prosecutors with working with Russian authorities.”

On the same day, Russian police said they asked permission from Germany authorities to question Navalny, a request virtually certain to be denied.

Russia’s Interior Ministry said it wants to send a team to work with German investigators on the Navalny case to ask “clarifying and additional questions,” adding:

It requested the presence of its team to “carry out investigative activities with Navalny, medics and (German) experts.”

On Friday, Berlin said it hadn’t received a request so far, DW adding:

“The public prosecutor’s office in Berlin said it had been instructed by state authorities in the German capital to provide legal assistance and information on Navalny’s health to Moscow.”

He “must however agree to this, the prosecutor said in a tweet.”

Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Moscow rejects false accusations and threats regarding what happened to Navalny, adding:

No evidence to open a criminal case exists.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet lost credibility by supporting US-led Western war on Venezuela’s social democracy.

Earlier she defied reality by falsely accusing President Nicolas Maduro of “profoundly erod(ing)” the rule of law, including “human rights violations…abuses and crimes (sic).”

She’s at it again, saying through her spokesman without evidence the following on Navalny:

“There was a very serious crime committed on Russian soil (sic).” 

“There appears to to be no doubt this exotic and highly deadly substance — novichok — was used (sic).” 

“(I)t’s incumbent on the Russian authorities to investigate a crime of this severity that took place on their own territory (sic).”

No evidence of a crime against Navalny exists.

Thus, there’s no reason to conduct a criminal investigation.

As long as German authorities refuse to provide Russia with evidence of a crime it claims was committed against Navalny, the accusation is baseless.

No legitimate tribunal would pronounce guilt in a criminal case  without proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

In the case of what happened to Navalny, nothing suggests Russian responsibility for his illness.

Claiming otherwise is part of longstanding unjustifiable US-led Western/establishment media supported Russia bashing.

6 ways Germany could kill the Nord Stream 2 pipeline

Germany has multiple options if it decides to try and halt the project, but they carry costs.

By America Hernandez

9/11/20

(go to article for the 6 ways)

Last paragraphs below...

6. Deny the pipeline a final compliance green-light

Even if no additional action by Germany or the EU is taken, Nord Stream 2 still faces many challenges to obtain a license to operate.

Should it succeed in completing construction, it then needs to find a company willing to brave U.S. sanctions by doing the final inspection. Gazprom also has to comply with the EU's second amended Gas Directive and disentangle its gas-selling operations from the running of the pipeline — something that will be judged by Germany's energy regulator.

The European Commission has already warned Gazprom that any moves deemed to be technical workarounds — such as transferring the ownership of the pipeline to a Gazprom subsidiary — won't be accepted.

After all these weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, moderate fighters in Syria, the chemical attack in Douma, the alleged murder of Babchenko in Kiev that resurected on the next day, I advise you not to be surprised that since no evidence has been presented in the cases of Skripal and Navalny, there are very serious doubts the more that the case of Navalny begins to fall apart because the Germans, like the British, do not present any evidence to support accusations

Simply nowadays there are not so many naive people who believe in the truth of any government's assurances simply because its highly likely as Theresa May once said..

And I don't mean that it certainly wasn't the case because I simply don't know. Only to be honest, the credibility of Western special services and governments is at least especially not so high for me to take their word for it.

Especially that in a situation in which Navalny seems not to have suffered dramatically , for a change, Russia goes to the attack and demands the full evidence of poisoning firmly.

If they were really guilty, I would simply sweep the matter under the rug as inconvenient for all parties.

By the way if someone thinks that such a development of the situation in the era of the new Cold War, even less with Russia and more with China, is a success for the West, and I congratulate him on optimism.

For example, I see photos of the Chinese exterminating the Uighurs. Only I can see also  the comments that this is fake news and anti-chinese propaganda. And I see a lot of such comments and to be honest I am not surprised at all.

Perhaps people are slowly forgetting about the WMD in Iraq. But unfortunately then there was also Syria where the West generally compromised itself to support Islamic fighters against a legitimate government whatever it was.

Good post Tomasz.  In my opinion, there is very little that I can trust on any mainstream news outlet.  Here is an example of a past propaganda campaign which resulted in the death of more than one million people.

The First Gulf War – Fake News and Propaganda

"Nurse Nayirah" in the media, was a fifteen-year-old Kuwaiti girl, who alleged that she had witnessed the murder of infant children by Iraqi soldiers in Kuwait, in verbal testimony to the U.S. Congress, in the run up to the 1991 Gulf War. Her testimony, which was regarded as credible at the time, has since come to be regarded as wartime propaganda. The public relations firm Hill & Knowlton, which was in the employ of Citizens for a Free Kuwait, had arranged the testimony. Nayirah's testimony was widely publicized. Hill & Knowlton, which had filmed the hearing, sent out a video news release to Medialink, a firm which served about 700 television stations in the United States.

That night, portions of the testimony aired on ABC's Nightline and NBC Nightly News reaching an estimated audience between 35 and 53 million Americans. Seven senators cited Nayirah's testimony in their speeches backing the use of force. President George Bush repeated the story at least ten times in the following weeks.

It should be noted that Hill & Knowlton have recently been involved in propaganda regarding the Pandemic.

A public opinion poll showed that most Germans support the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, says Michael Harms, head of OAOEV, the German Business Eastern Commission. According to the study, 77% of Germans support the implementation of the project that will adversely affect the energy security of Central and Eastern Europe. Almost every fifth (19%) has no opinion on this subject, and only 4% of the respondents are against NS2. More than half of the surveyed German citizens (55%) would also like to strengthen economic relations with Russia. 28% were against, and another 17% said they had no opinion on this matter. Taking into account the above results, it will come as no surprise that as many as 86% of respondents condemned the unilateral US sanctions against Russia. Only 5% were of the opposite opinion

 

Personally, it seems to me clearly that at least a dozen Navalny would have to be poisoned or Angela Merkel herself would have to be poisoned so that the Germans as society would give up this project. It is true that the author of the study is the German-Russian Trade Group, but the results of the survey are rather unambiguous.

If Europe ever withdraws from this project, it will only be under the dictatorship of the Americans and not that some oppositionist has been poisoned.

This could be, at best, a formal pretext and, from this poll, rather a pretext that would only convince German society to a very small extent.

in general, the USA has such a big problem that the German society has been more sympathetic to cooperation with Russia for a long time, and America, especially Trump's America, is not popular there. And if the Americans block Nord Stream II, their ratings are unlikely to improve. 

History will not change - Russians and Germans have either worked closely together for centuries or have waged wars. But for them to be indifferent to each other for long time it was probably not common  in history.

As part of this centuries-long cooperation, it is the USA that is a new element only somewhere after the end of World War II.

Moreover, tsarist Russia was very often ruled by ethnic Germans from the Baltic states, less often from German states.

One such curiosity is that the Germans from the former Eastern Bloc are even better inclined to cooperate with Russia than Western Germany. Honestly, it puzzles me because in Poland there is clearly visible anti-Russianness and in East Germany opposite pro-Russianness, although they have less experience with tsarist Russia than Poles.

Anyway, Poles want to set an example and tell the Germans to give up Nord Stream. But Poland itself is such an anti-Russian champion of abandoning Russian gas but at the same time, which probably few people in the west know know, just as Germany is like a drug addict dependent on Russian gas, so Poland has been dependent on cheap Russian coal for several years - the situation is that Poland limits its own production and imports several million tons of coal from Russia annually, the more it is longer  ruled by the Russophobic Law and Justice party.

The German Ministry of Finance in August offered the United States to finance the construction of terminals for receiving liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the country in exchange for completing the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, German newspaper Zeit reported.

According to her, the German minister Olaf Scholz made such an offer to his American colleague Steven Mnuchin, first orally, and then, on August 7, in writing. According to the newspaper, it was proposed to build LNG receiving terminals in Brunsbüttel and Wilhelmshaven, and the Ministry of Finance proposed to allocate up to a billion euros for this.

"For its part, the United States will allow unhindered completion of construction and commissioning of Nord Stream 2. The existing legal possibilities for sanctions are not fully realized," the newspaper quoted a proposal from the document

The Nord Stream 2 project involves the construction of a gas pipeline with a capacity of 55 billion cubic meters per year from the Russian coast through the Baltic Sea to Germany. It is being implemented by Nord Stream 2 AG with the sole shareholder - Gazprom. European partners - Royal Dutch Shell, OMV, Engie, Uniper and Wintershall - are financing the project in total by 50%, that is, up to 950 million euros each.

The United States actively opposes the project, promoting its liquefied natural gas in the EU. The United States imposed sanctions against Nord Stream 2 in December, demanding companies to immediately stop laying the pipeline. The Swiss Allseas then almost immediately announced the suspension of such work. Now the US is discussing the expansion of sanctions against the project.

Germany in August offered the United States to finance the construction of LNG receiving terminals in the country in exchange for the possibility of unauthorized completion of the construction of the Nord Stream-2 gas pipeline, German Die Zeit reports. Berlin was ready to finance up to € 1 billion for the construction of two LNG terminals in the ports of Brunsbüttel and Wilhelmhaven.

The German government has offered Washington a billion-dollar deal in exchange for waiving sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, Die Zeit newspaper reported today, citing sources. In early August, the head of the Ministry of Finance of the Federal Republic of Germany, Olaf Scholz, informed his American colleague Steven Mnuchin of his readiness to finance the construction of two receiving terminals for the import of American LNG in the ports of Brunsbuttel and Wilhelmhaven.

According to the newspaper, a written proposal from Germany to invest up to € 1 billion of state funds in the construction of terminals was received in Washington on August 7.

“In return, the United States will allow the completion and launch of Nord Stream 2 without hindrance,” the publication quotes a written proposal from Berlin.

The US is trying in every possible way to prevent the completion of Nord Stream 2. Washington, in particular, has proposed tough new sanctions against the Russian gas pipeline, which are already included in the bill on the US defense budget for 2021. In addition, the world community calls on the Russian Federation to be punished for the poisoning of opposition leader Alexei Navalny , by blocking in any way the further implementation of the project. On September 24 and 25, the heads of the EU countries plan to discuss in Brussels the possibility of introducing restrictive measures against Nord Stream 2.

At the moment, Germany, the largest gas market in Europe, does not have a single LNG receiving terminal, and the country receives gas from the world LNG market indirectly through Belgium and Holland. The terminal in Wilhelmshaven with a capacity of up to 10 billion cubic meters per year is going to be built by Uniper, which has already ordered a corresponding vessel for receiving and regasification of liquefied gas (FSRU) from Japanese Mitsui. Commissioning is expected in the second half of 2022. The operator of the terminal in Brunsbüttel is the Gasunie, Vopak and Marquard & Bahls JV, its capacity is expected to be 3-5 billion cubic meters per year, commissioning is also tentatively scheduled for 2022. Most of the Brunsbüttel terminal capacity has already been contracted by RWE.

State subsidies for the construction of receiving terminals will reduce the rates for storage and regasification of LNG, which now in Europe can average $ 0.4-0.5 per MBTU ($ 15-18 per 1,000 cubic meters).

This amount is added to the contract price of LNG when it is delivered inland, and accordingly, the reduction of these rates will increase the competitiveness of LNG in the German market compared to pipeline gas from Russia and Norway.

 

I think US administration should consider this option . If its true german gas demand may increase a lot thanks to Energwendie maybe its good offer for both sides.

I once wrote that it seems to me that in the second half of the decade, when the balance on the gas market will even out, as announced by the Oxford Institute for Energy Studies, the world market will finally reconcile gas from pipelines and LNG. As far as I remember, the British are announcing that in 2025 there will be a balance of supply and demand on the market, and the price of Gazprom's LNG and gas will fluctuate around $ 7-8 per MBT, with gas from Gazprom still being a bit cheaper, although prices in May by 2025, more even when the prices of Gazprom with the increase in oil prices to $ 70 will just rise somewhere to the level of $ 7-7.5 per mbbt ($ 1 per mbbt is $ 36.9 per 1,000 m3 of gas).

Germany gas demand most likely goes up + Europe local gas production goes down.

 

If I am not mistaken, Shell been talking about 2021-2022 global gas market to balance. However, it might happen sooner - US gas production already going down and less shale oil production means less associated gas. Moreover, there is a lot uncertainty about Us election - might be new green policy introduced (means less gas again). Plus low gas prices globally pushed for faster transition coal-to-gas energy generation. So we will see....global gas market it a is complex dynamic system with many unknown components. 2025 is too far away :)

The statement by the German authorities that Navalny was allegedly poisoned with Novichok caused bewilderment among everyone who at least somehow understands the issue of organophosphorus toxic substances (OPT), including me.

Publications appeared on the Runet showing the inconsistency of the available facts with this statement. In particular, Ch. Forum.msk editor A. Baranov, a doctor by training, drew attention to the discrepancy between the symptoms observed in Navalny and the symptoms of OPP poisoning, including Novichki (all these substances have a nerve-paralytic effect):

As an expert in the field of chemistry and pharmaceuticals, I would like to draw attention to three other circumstances that do not correspond to the version of Navalny's poisoning by Novichok.

  1. The latest statement by German authorities about Navalny's poisoning by Novichok completely contradicts the previous statement by German pharmaceutical authorities that Navalny was poisoned with a substance from the group of cholinesterase inhibitors, which includes parathion (thiophos).

I devoted my previous article to the analysis of this statement:

Was Navalny poisoned with thiophos?

This group includes the following biologically active substances that are close in chemical structure:

  1. Alzheimer's Disease Medicines
  2. Insecticides for insect control (thiophos, metaphos)
  3. Antidote for alcohol and fly agaric poisoning

This article shows that thiophos and metaphos are very different in structure from Novice and other OPA (which are also cholinesterase inhibitors, which is the reason for their nerve-paralytic effect). The thiophos formula is given in the above article, the formulas of the well-known FOV - in my article:

From sarin to "Newbies", and also about the Skripals case. Part 1. Organophosphate toxicants - from sarin to "Novichesk"

At the same time, they could not have poisoned Navalny with thiophos, because:

  1. Thiophos or metaphos are slightly soluble in water, but when dissolved, they hydrolyze to form p-nitrophenol and diethyl (methyl) thiophosphoric acid (in an alkaline medium - their salts), which do not pose a particular danger.
  2. Thiophos and metaphos have a rather strong unpleasant (garlic) odor.

Therefore, I put forward the assumption that Navalny found drugs for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease or an antidote used for alcohol and fly agaric poisoning (i.e. also a drug), the structures of which are similar to the structure of thiophos (parathion).

And if the Germans said that Navalny had drug poisoning, possibly with an attack of a disease like diabetes, it would be logical. But instead, the Germans said they had found the Novichok ...

  • The "newcomers" quickly decompose with water, which contradicts the initially disseminated statement that Navalny's poison was allegedly put in tea.

The functional group P ‑ F is responsible for the high biological activity of the Novice. "Novices" are fluoroanhydrides of phosphoric or methylphosphonic acid derivatives (phosphates or methylphosphonates).

All these fluoroanhydrides (like any acid fluorides in general) quickly, although not immediately, decompose by water to the corresponding acids (hydrolysis reaction). Moreover, when heated, the reaction rate increases markedly. These acids do not have the nerve effect that the P ‑ F group is responsible for. Therefore, "Novices" (and other FOVs) do not put in drinks or food (where there is usually also a lot of water) - they will decompose, especially if the drink or food is hot.

On the hydrolysis of Novichkov and the Skripals case see my articles:

From sarin to "Newbies", and also about the Skripals case. Part 2. Identification of poison and identification of the place of production of poison are two big differences

From sarin to "Newbies", and also about the Skripals case. Part 3. How could the "Novice A-234" be used in Salisbury and why did the Skripals survived? And also about the poisoning in Amesbury

I understand that journalists and politicians simply do not know about the decomposition of Novichkov with water, and I am even ready to agree that this is not required of them.

But if someone really ordered someone to poison Navalny with Novichok, then these persons (organizers and / or executors) had to know this fact, which is obvious to specialists, so they could not put Novichok in tea.

By the way, those who used "Novichok" against the Skripals knew this, and applied it to the door handles. Apparently, there it partially decomposed in the humid atmosphere of spring England within a few hours after application. In a similar way, when the banker Kivelidi was poisoned in 1995, "Novichok" was applied to a landline telephone.

  • Why was no one from his entourage and none of the doctors injured when Navalny was allegedly poisoned by Novichok, although no one used special protective equipment?

This question naturally came to mind not only to me.

Indeed, during the poisoning of the Skripals by Novichok, a policeman was injured, in addition to two of them, in Amesbury one person died and one was poisoned, when Kivelidi was poisoned, two more died, and several people were injured. And here, no one has any signs of poisoning. Wonders…

In general, the Germans clearly do not make ends meet.

And I suppose we won't see Navalny again in Russia, regardless of who poisoned him and with what, and whether he was poisoned at all. They will hide it in the West, as they hide the Skripals.

Navalny  - For me personally, all this is playing like another False Flag event in order to demonize Russia.  There are so many fibers to this scenario that get lost in the confusion.  Just like the Anthrax attacks which came a month following 9/11/01.  Initially, they were blamed on Iraq.  Eventually, the hard evidence shows that the Anthrax came from a Maryland U.S. Bio-Lab...and even then, the U.S. picked a fall guy (or two, because the first didn't fly.)  Being Suicided is a nice way to end the trail of evidence.  I figure that they will play this false flag card as long as they can to stall the pipeline and to prevent Russia from becoming a long term player in Natural Gas to the West.

Here is a recent ABC News article of September 17, 2020

Navalny team alleges Novichok found in hotel water bottle

Colleagues of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny say a bottle of water with a trace of the Novichok nerve agent was found in his hotel room in the Siberian city of Tomsk after he fell ill on a flight to Moscow last month

Navalny is an insignificant in Russia, despised as a US puppet. Why go to trouble of poison, when far more expedient methods can be used? Why allow him to exit the country if he were in fact poisoned? How could he survive a serious poison, when any serious poison works in minutes, eg cyanide?  Where is the proof from the Germans?  It's all b/s, intended for dumb-shit murcans to swallow. Russia is only too happy to see Navalny leave: now he is Germany's welfare/medical problem. Stupid Germans, sad to say.

After the Russian Kremlin critic Alexej Navalny was poisoned, calls in Germany for a construction stop on the Nord Stream 2 Baltic Sea pipeline have grown louder. Two surveys now show that the major project still has the support of the Germans. According to the trend barometer of the television stations RTL and n-tv, 60 percent of Germans are in favor of building the pipeline to the end, and 28 percent are against it. The survey institute Civey came to similar results on behalf of the magazine “Der Spiegel”: 55 percent are against a construction freeze on Nord Stream 2 and 31 percent are in favor. The rest is a tie. In both surveys, supporters of all German parties in the Bundestag spoke out in favor of completing Nord Stream 2, only voters from the Greens were against it in a majority.

You like Trump and other authoritarian minded regimes love that idea of thought and expression control. Of course common sense will prevail in the end. It may take a few more generations to weed out this corrosive corruption.

Trump has been attacked by 90% of the media for four years and you come up with the idea that he is somehow authoritarian. He has nearly every establishment group against him. His authority is questioned at every chance. Lawsuits of all kinds. Bad court decisions. You are living in a false narrative. But you are not alone.

My reply to the barrage of Russophiles who have commented on this poisoning is "Methinks thou dost protest too much" Shakespeare.  Russia is well known to kill, in various ways, anyone who dares to oppose the cabal of leaders who report to leader for life Putin. The ways that the government picks its leaders in a fake democracy is legendary. Just leave out anyone with a differing opinion and repress them in any way needed or just eliminate them. 

Auto "accidents". 

Murder by "unknown" criminals.

Poisoning.

Airplane crashes.

Death "by natural causes" in prison. etc.

Wholeheartedly agree, Ron.  If they'd have wanted him dead, he would not have recovered and still been talking.

The Russians have killed so many politicians and journalists that it is well known they will have someone do it. The government arranges the hits through independent agents. 

Keep your head in the sand if you wish.

Let's count:

- Navalny's men are in the hotel room at 11:45 - they came because they found out that N felt bad after an hour of flight (i.e. take off around 10:30)

- Navalny was at the airport at 7:17 (2 hours time difference from Surgut)

The plane takes off at 8:15 "N" feels bad after 50 minutes of flight -

9:05 People of the stormy go to the hotel immediately - it's around 9:45 am

Only the footage says they were at the hotel at 11:45

 And Sam naughty had to hand over the room around 6:00 - in Russia, the double-decker always checks whether nothing has been damaged, whether the bar is full, etc.

Living in several dozen hotels in Russia, I dare to say that before leaving, she would throw empty bottles into the trash.

I also cannot imagine a situation where the hotel would let anyone into the room, to have anything collected there (interesting that one of Navalny's people was barefoot!).

Without the assistance of the Militia Navalny's associates will now face criminal prosecution for:

- theft of evidence (7 years of penal colony)

- illegal transport of chemical warfare agents across the state border (3-7 years) and

they will probably burst for obstructing the investigation

This is a post of former polish diplomat in Russian Federation on twitter. Its interesting because Poland is totally against Nord Stream II. But as Marcin correctly said its former polish diplomat and it says a lot.
