The incident with the allegedly “poisoned” Alexei Navalny by a strange coincidence literally in the first seconds hit the headlines of Western publications. This coincidence was pointed out by political scientist Alexander Sosnovsky.
No sooner had the information about the hospitalization of the leader of the Russian opposition get into the domestic media, as it is already replicated by Western sources. For example, on the pages of the German Tagesspiegel, the news about “poisoning” Navalny appeared as early as 6:56 a.m.
They wrote literally “in the second mode” that Alexey Navalny allegedly poisoned with a toxin, mixed him in tea on board the plane. Russian political scientist and physician Alexander Sosnovsky shared this publication in his Telegram channel, pointing out another detail: the text mentions that “in Russia, suspicion of poisoning has often been a problem in the past, especially in airplanes.” They believe that the Kremlin is trying to get rid of its main opponent: “Fear of Navalny huge,” Twitter users write.
“Very bad news” called the report about the hospitalization of the head of the FBC and the British financier Bill Browder – the same company whose company Hermitage Capital Management stole 5.4 billion rubles from the Russian budget in 2007. He also shared the information early in the morning. His subscribers were immediately happy about the Kremlin’s accusations: “Why are Putin’s opponents still drinking tea?”, “In Russia, it is better not to drink or eat, and not to stand at the window if you are in a bad relationship with Putin Navalny.” He became ill on the flight, opposition spokeswoman Kira Yarmish said on Twitter.
She also specified that she had to land the plane in Omsk, and Navalny to be taken to the hospital by ambulance.
According to Yarmish, the oppositionist has “toxic poisoning.” He himself is now in intensive care unconscious. The media reports that the politician was connected to the ventilator, his condition is assessed by doctors as severe.
