A new round of fighting between Russia and the West

  The Kremlin Information Bureau quoted Russian President Putin in a telephone conversation with French President Macron on the 14th of this month. Unfounded accusations "are inappropriate."

Putin pointed out in the phone call that in order to find out the true situation of the incident, it is necessary for the German experts to transmit the official test results and biological materials of the Navalny sample to the Russian side, and establish cooperation with Russian doctors.

In the "coma incident" for nearly a month, Russia and the United States and the West have quite different positions in relation to each other.

The strange "coma incident"

  According to public opinion in the United States and the West, Navalny, who founded the Anti-Corruption Foundation, is one of the most influential opposition leaders in Russia.

In 2018, he tried to participate in the presidential election, but was banned because the criminal case had not expired.

In March of this year, relevant departments of the Russian government closed the bank accounts of himself, his wife and children.

In July, due to a lawsuit, the Anti-Corruption Foundation in Navariny was closed.

  On August 20, Navalny became unwell on the flight from Tomsk to Moscow, and the plane made an emergency landing at Omsk Airport.

Immediately, Navalny was taken to a hospital in Omsk and placed in the intensive care unit.

Soon after admission, doctors at the Omsk Emergency Hospital made a preliminary diagnosis, stating that the Navariny coma was caused by acute poisoning of a salty, colorless psychotic drug called sodium oxybate.

In this regard, Navalny did not agree.

Anti-Corruption Foundation press spokesperson Yalmesh said that Navaline had no symptoms before boarding the plane, except that he had drunk a cup of hot tea in a coffee shop in Tomsk Airport before the flight took off, and his health deteriorated rapidly. , "It is very likely that someone was poisoned."

  The Kremlin paid much attention to the fact that Navalny was in a coma.

Russian Presidential Press Secretary Peskov said at the time that he was "very concerned" about Navaline who was hospitalized. If there is evidence that he was poisoned, the Russian government will investigate it.

That night, resuscitation specialists from the Bourdenko General Hospital of the Russian Army in Moscow and the Pirogov Surgery Center of the Russian Ministry of Health flew to Omsk urgently to participate in diagnosis, treatment and treatment.

The Omsk Emergency Hospital stated on August 21 that no toxic substances or traces of drugs had been found in the patient’s blood and urine. From a clinical diagnosis point of view, it was more likely to be metabolic disorders and a sharp drop in blood sugar.

  After news of Navariny's coma came out, Western countries have been extremely active.

Macron called for "complete transparency" of Navariny's hospitalization, saying that he is prepared to provide "all necessary assistance" to Navariny and his family including health, asylum and personal protection.

British Foreign Secretary Raab said on Twitter that he was “deeply concerned” that Navarine was “poisoned” on the flight to Moscow and is now in a coma in intensive care.

U.S. President Trump said that the United States pays close attention to the situation in Navalny.

  According to reports, German Chancellor Merkel called Finnish President Niinisto on August 21, and then Niinisto called Putin to ask if Russia could agree to transfer Navariny to Germany.

Putin replied readily at the time that there were no "political obstacles."

On August 22, a professional German medical plane transported Navalny, who was still in a coma, to Berlin Charité Hospital.

Russia encounters criticism from the United States and Europe

  On August 24, Charité Hospital in Germany made a preliminary diagnosis of cholinesterase inhibitor poisoning.

The German government stated on September 2 that experts from the German Bundeswehr laboratory discovered that it was the "Novijok" agent that had "poisoned" Navariny.

On the 14th, specialized laboratories in France and Sweden re-examined Navaline's samples and "confirmed" the existence of the "Novijok" poison.

In the past few weeks, the so-called "repeating the old tricks" of Russia, like "poisoning" defected spy Skripal and his daughter, directed against Navalny, overwhelmingly occupying prominent positions in the US and Western media.

  German Chancellor Merkel and Foreign Minister Maas said on August 24 that they strongly urge the Russian authorities to conduct a comprehensive and thorough investigation into the incident and bring all persons involved in the case to justice.

The German Chancellery pointed out in a statement that the Russian government should find out the truth about the "poisoning incident" in Navariny, investigate the persons involved, pursue their legal responsibility, and maintain maximum transparency.

Merkel said on September 3 that the information about the "attempt to poison" Navariny was "unpleasant."

  The EU’s High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy Borelli issued a statement on September 3, stating that the EU calls on the international community to jointly respond to the incident in Navariny, a Russian opposition figure, “The EU reserves the right to take relevant actions including the implementation of restrictions.”

  The US State Department issued a joint statement by the foreign ministers of the Group of Seven countries on September 8, condemning the “confirmed Navaline poisoning incident” most severely and calling on Russia to fully investigate the “provocative poisoning attack” as soon as possible. "" and punish those responsible, fulfill its obligations under the framework of the "Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons," and call on Russia to identify the person responsible for the Navaline incident as soon as possible.

  In addition to asking Russia to investigate the so-called "coma incident" and punish the perpetrators, the United States and the West have begun to target the "Beixi-2" natural gas pipeline project.

The total cost of the "Beixi-2" project is 9.5 billion Euros, 50% of which is invested by Gazprom. French ENGIE Group, Austrian Oil and Gas Group, Royal Dutch Shell, German Uniper and German Wintershall will each provide 950 million Euros of financing to build two The construction of a natural gas branch pipeline from the Russian coast to Germany through the Baltic Sea has an annual gas transmission capacity of 55 billion cubic meters.

For the implementation of the project, the United States, Ukraine and some European countries strongly opposed.

In December last year, the United States imposed sanctions on the project, which has caused the project to remain suspended.

  The chairman of the Green Party parliamentary group of the German Bundestag Gorin-Eckart said on September 2 that someone needs to bear the consequences for Navaline’s "Novichok" poisonous attack, "'Beixi-2' is no longer ours. Projects that can be implemented jointly with Russia".

Danish Prime Minister Frederickson said on the 12th that he supports the re-discussion of the "Beixi-2" construction project and that "we should not rely on Russian natural gas."

The United States is even more excited and spares no effort to create discord among European countries.

Trump said on September 8 that he supports Europe's suspension of the implementation of the "Beixi-2" project due to the Navalline problem. "Of course I support (stop the implementation), and I am the first to raise this point."

  Faced with tremendous pressure from all parties, Merkel, who had firmly supported the "North Stream-2" project, loosened its position.

On September 8, she stated at the closed-door meeting of the CDU-CSU party group that she has not yet made a decision on the "Beixi-2" project. "This should be a pan-European decision, not a German. A country’s decision".

Russia: "poisoning incident" is a plot

  In response to the US-led G7 statement on the Navaline incident, the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs strongly condemned it on September 9th, saying it was "a large-scale false propaganda campaign aimed at inciting sentiments to impose sanctions on Russia." ".

In general, this is the official position of the Russian top on the "Navaline coma".

  Both the US and Western governments and mainstream public opinion have portrayed Navalny as the opposition leader in Russia "enough to challenge Putin's status", implying that the Russian government is difficult to separate from this.

Russian public opinion believes that the "Navaline coma incident" can be determined to be Russia's assassination.

  The Kremlin is confident that the cause of Navariny's coma was not "poisoning", otherwise it would be difficult to explain Putin personally allowed him to go to Germany for rescue and treatment.

In Omsk, not only doctors from the city’s emergency hospital participated in the diagnosis and treatment, but also experts from the Russian Army Burdenko General Hospital and the Pilokov Surgery Center of the Russian Ministry of Health.

However, Russian military experts failed to detect the "Novichok" sample.

  Russia destroyed all "Novijok", and the United States had developed the poison.

Russian Foreign Intelligence Agency Director Naryshkin stated on September 15 that all "Novijok" poison stocks in Russia have been destroyed in accordance with the agreement reached with the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons and recorded in accordance with the regulations. This is contrary to this fact. The accusation is false.

The Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs pointed out on September 5 that experts from many Western countries and NATO specialized agencies had participated in the development of the "Novijok" series of military-grade poisons, and some US military-grade poisons researchers officially obtained nearly 150 patents.

Two years ago, Rebalichenko, the head of the Chemical Analysis Management Laboratory of the Scientific Research Center of the Russian Ministry of Defense, said with certainty that Russia has documents that prove that the United States has developed "Novijok" poisons.

Analysts here pointed out that even if the specialized laboratories in Germany, France or Sweden did detect the "Novijok" poison, it was not the cause of Navalny's coma.

In other words, Russia believes that the exchange of samples is intended to discredit Russia, which is a naked provocation.

  The true support rate of Navalny among the people in Russia is far lower than that of the American and Western media. In fact, the Kremlin has never regarded it as a "serious political threat."

Precisely based on this, the Russian mainstream media has always avoided calling Navariny the leader of the opposition, but only replaced it with a "blogger" to avoid raising his profile.

At the same time, under the hype of American and Western public opinion, "Novichok" has even become Russia's exclusive and special weapon against traitors and dissidents.

Judging from common sense, the so-called high-level Russian action against Navalny is not worth refuting.

  In addition, Navalny has now awakened, proving that he was not poisoned by "Novijok".

The Charité Hospital in Berlin issued a news on September 7 stating that Navalny's condition has improved and he has woke up from a coma.

Navalny himself posted a photo on social media on the 15th, claiming that he could breathe independently instead of relying on a ventilator.

Leonid Link, a scientist who was directly involved in the "Novijok" military poison, determined that Navarine's awakening from a coma showed that he was "not poisoned by "Novijok"."

Link said that even if Navalny was "poisoned", it did not come from "Novijok" because the purpose of developing "Novijok" was to replace nuclear weapons, and its lethality rate was 100%.

  In order to clarify the truth about the "coma incident" in Navariny, the Russian government requires German experts to transmit the official test results and biological materials of the Navariny samples to Russia, and cooperate with Russian doctors.
