What is it?
- Earlier this week, German doctors confirmed that Alexey Navalny was poisoned by a mixture of nerve agents, pesticides, and medical drugs. Navalny collapsed on a flight from Tomsk in Siberia to Moscow last week and was airlifted to Berlin where he remains in a coma.
- The Russian government has already ruled out any investigation into Navalny’s poisoning and was dismissed any connections between Putin and the poisoning of many of his critics and political opponents.
Why is it important?
- Navalny is largely viewed as Putin’s most significant and prominent opposition. His poisoning is a blatant act of aggression and demonstrates Putin’s belief that his word is law in Russia.
- Navalny is expected to recover but the long-term effects of the poison are unknown. Vladimir Kara Murza, another Putin critic has been poisoned twice – read his account HERE.
