Russia "Must Answer" On Poisoning Of Vladimir Putin's Critic: Germany

Russia

In Berlin, Chancellor Angela Merkel said in a statement: "It is now clear: Alexei Navalny is the victim of a crime".

"Relations between Germany and Russian Federation will certainly be chafed by the finding", said Per Hammarlund, chief emerging-markets strategist at SEB AB in Stockholm.

"No, we didn't receive this information", Peskov responded when addressed on the issue.

Peskov complained that Russian Federation had not received an answer to its request for German doctors to share their findings.

Upon conducting multiple tests involving experts from different fields, Russian doctors said that no traces of poison had been found, suggesting that Navalny's condition was caused by an abrupt drop of glucose in his blood due to a metabolic imbalance.

Several Russian lawmakers have said Russia isn't manufacturing Novichok-type agents.

"Of course we have the expectation that Russian Federation should contribute more to clearing up of the Navalny case than it is doing at the moment", he said alongside French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian.

Earlier this week, Germany urged Moscow to step up its efforts to investigate the apparent poisoning of Mr Navalny, who remains in a coma. "We have seen first-hand the deadly consequences of Novichok in the UK".

Chancellor Angela Merkel's government will consult with European Union and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to formulate a coordinated response over the incident and wants an urgent explanation from the Russian government about what happened, Steffen Seibert, Merkel's chief spokesman, said Wednesday in an emailed statement. Russian Federation has refused to extradite the men to Britain.

Germany said it will inform its European Union and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners of the result of its investigation and work on "an appropriate joint reaction". To all appearances, he has the president of the United States in his pocket.

The German prosecutor's office refused to recognize the case of Alexei Navalny as a special case.

"We will work with allies and the global community to hold those in Russian Federation accountable, wherever the evidence leads, and restrict funds for their malign activities", he said.

Ullyot added that Russians have a right to "express their views peacefully without fear of retribution of any kind, and certainly not with chemical agents".

The Russian Foreign Ministry stated on Wednesday that Berlin's appeal to the EU, NATO and the OPCW on the Navalny case is needed to justify pre-arranged "response measures". She wrote, "Perpetrators need to be brought to justice".

The European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen tweeted after Merkel's statement saying she had been informed by Merkel of the findings and called it "a despicable and cowardly act - once again".
