Expert: OPCW will try to fit Navalny’s case into the “Novichok” pattern

06.10.2020, Berlin.

Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) will try to draw a confession from Russia that opposition activist Alexei Navalny was poisoned by “Novichok”, chief editor of World Economy magazine Alexander Sosnowski said on October 6 on the air of “Vesti FM” radio station.

“What are the OPCW specialists going to discuss in Moscow? Are they going to put some research results on the table and say that all this is confirmed – what they were saying about Navalny poisoning? Or will they try to persuade Russia – the way Germany does it, so that Russia just confesses,” Sosnowski said.

“We won’t publish anything, but you must confess that it was ‘Novichok’?” Sosnowski said.

Earlier, Associate Professor of Russian Academy of National Economy and Public Administration Sergey Karnaukhov noted that the incident with “poisoning” of the opposition activist Alexei Navalny was a planned “symphony”.

On August 20, a well-known blogger was brought into intensive care, which provoked a reaction of the Russian nonsystemic opposition and world mass media, which rushed to declare about poisoning of the oppositionist without preliminary results of analysis. According to the latest data, it turned out that 0.2 ppm of alcohol was found in Navalny’s blood. It also became known that the man had been drinking until 2 a.m. the previous evening.

On October 5, the OPCW press-service informed that they were ready to send their experts to Russia to participate in investigation of circumstances of incident with Russian opposition activist Navalny.
