Navalny False-Flag Authors Invent New Twist To Cover Lies

So now the Navalny poison episode takes on a new twist with German military intelligence subsequently claiming they found traces of Novichok on a bottle of water the Russian dissident had purportedly been drinking from. Rather, it sounds more like the authors of this false-flag operation have “bottled” – meaning became unnerved by the absurdities inherent in their own narrative.

Last week the German government announced that a Bundeswehr military laboratory had detected Novichok in the body fluids of Sergei Navalny. That promptly led to charges that the Kremlin was responsible for the attempted murder of Navalny using the Soviet-era nerve poison.
The trouble for the German side was that their narrative soon ran into contradictions from the Russian toxicologists who first treated Navalny when he apparently fell ill on a flight from Siberia to Moscow on August 20. The Russian medics said they had tested Navalny for a whole range of poisons, including organophosphate-type chemicals which attack the nervous system. The Russian doctors affirmed they found no poison traces. They concluded Navalny’s coma was induced by an existing medical condition, presumably diabetes. Furthermore, the doctors at the hospital in Omsk where Navalny was taken to on August 20, said they have original samples of his body fluids.
It’s the latter detail which seems to have obliged the Germans to elaborate their narrative with the new element of a poisoned bottle of water. If indeed the Russians have Navalny’s biological samples showing no presence of toxins then the German version falls apart as a fabrication. That could only mean that the claimed detection of Novichok by the Germans was the result of deliberate contamination of his body fluids while he was being treated in the hospital in Berlin where he was airlifted to on August 22 from Russia.
It is reported by Der Spiegel that Navalny’s family relatives kept the alleged bottle after he fell sick on the flight from the Siberian city Tomsk. They purportedly did not hand the bottle over to the Russian toxicologists in Omsk, but rather provided the bottle instead to the Germans when Navalny arrived in Berlin two days later.
This “bottle twist” is a convenient and necessary foil to avoid the potentially damning contradiction from the Russian side. The Germans can now claim to have evidence that was not available to the Russians.
But such a ploy creates more questions that still make the German narrative implausible, if not absurd.
If Novichok was used in poisoning Navalny, the 44-year-old dissident would most likely be dead by now. Also, the aides and flight attendants who came into close contact with him during his flight would have shown symptoms of poisoning. It is inconceivable that a bottle contaminated with the deadly nerve agent could have been transported by Navalny’s family to Germany without them being stricken.
The strange Navalny affair has an unerring resemblance to the equally outlandish Skripal affair. Yet the latter is cited as a precedent for the former in order to “substantiate” incrimination of Russia. The alleged Novichok weapon seems to have an amazing ability to lose its deadly potency on bystanders. The immediate victims apparently go into mysterious comas and are not seen or heard of again in public, detained in secret by the British and now German government. There is also the curious introduction of bottles in both cases: the perfume bottle which allegedly conveyed the Novichok weapon in the Skripal incident in England in March 2018, and now the water bottle in the Navalny incident.
As with the alleged assassination attempt on MI6 double agent Sergei Skripal, the latest incident involving Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny is undoubtedly a false-flag provocation to foment Western sanctions and hostility against Moscow.
Immediately following reports of alleged German detection of Novichok in Navalny’s body, there were predictable calls for the cancellation of the Nord Stream-2 gas project between Russia and Germany. It is no secret that pro-Washington German politicians have long been opposed to the ambitious energy trade with Russia.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has up to now been resolute in wanting Nord Stream-2 completed in spite of immense pressure from the Trump administration and the U.S. Congress to abandon it. The American agenda is transparently to replace Russian gas energy supplies with American exports.
Navalny’s apparent poison-assassination fits neatly with this strategic American agenda. Given the allegiance of German military intelligence and certain politicians to the transatlantic axis it is not difficult to conceive of how a false-flag provocation against Moscow could be orchestrated.
The problem is that in their haste to set up Navalny as a victim in order to sabotage Nord Stream-2, the authors overlooked the unfortunate anomaly of Russian doctors potentially disproving the claim of detecting Novichok in Navalny’s body. Realizing their clumsy mistake, the authors are obliged to invent another twist in the story involving a contaminated water bottle. In terms of credibility, however, their invention doesn’t hold water.
This has grave implications for the survivability of Navalny. As an opposition figure long lionized and exaggerated by the West as the nemesis of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Navalny is more valuable dead than alive as a propaganda weapon. With its false-flag narrative failing, the temptation may be to up the ante dramatically by amending the script of Navalny “succumbing” to Novichok.

Navalny, Novichok, And Nord Stream 2

Timing is everything, they say. Never more so was it crucial in the case of Alexei Navalny, currently coming out of a coma in the Charité hospital in Berlin, Germany, where he was transferred last month from Omsk in Russia after collapsing on a plane. Timing in this detective story is vital to understanding the motive behind the alleged poisoning.
[b]For the West, it is a cut and dried case. Navalny, the Russian opposition activist, was poisoned by a nerve agent ‘Novichok’, probably in a cup of tea he drank at Omsk airport. The German military, after liaising with scientists at the UK’s Porton Down laboratory, came to that conclusion after carrying out tests. The implication is that the Russian state is responsible. In what was an unusually defiant tone, Angela Merkel said that Germany was awaiting answers from the Russian government regarding Navalny’s plight. Heiko Maas, the German Foreign Minister, went further at the weekend to say that he hoped Russia would come up with a response to the allegations of Novichok poisoning, or it could affect the completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project.[/b]
And herein lies the rub for the western version of events. For if indeed the Russian state was indeed guilty of poisoning Navalny, why on earth would it allow his transfer to Germany? And why would it carry out such a criminal act during the last phase of the Nord Stream pipeline project, in which so much has been invested? Politically and geopolitically, such an act would absolutely backfire. By eliminating an opposition member such as Alexei Navalny, it would no doubt produce a furious reaction from both foreign powers and domestic opposition, only encouraging anti-government activism.
So why therefore have we not seen protestors take to the streets in Russia in support of Navalny? Partly, it is because many Russians are sceptical of the West’s allegations. Given that Russia would have so much to lose from such a state-sponsored act, the motivation is not there. There are just as many holes in the western narrative as there were with the Skripal case back in 2018. As was the case back then, the Russian state was accused of the poisoning of ex double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, yet no evidence of Russian state involvement was provided. As yet we are to hear from the doctors treating Navalny in the Charité hospital in Berlin, just as we didn’t hear from those involved in the Skripal case. As in the Skripal case, the timing of the incident couldn’t be worse for the Kremlin. Then, it was just before the Russian world cup; in this case, it is just before the completion of Nord Stream 2 and when the Trump administration has spoken of meeting with Putin later this year. Why would the Russian state risk such an act at this time? Furthermore, if it was the nerve agent Novichok, a potent chemical up to eight times stronger than VX, why were other people around Navalny not affected? And why did he not exhibit any of the spasms associated with such nerve agents?
On the contrary, as the doctors treating him in Omsk reported, there was no indication that Navalny was suffering from poisoning by a nerve agent. They suggested various possibilities, including one of a pancreatic disorder which would fit the results of the investigations carried out, and the symptoms exhibited. Why it is that the German experts have come up with a completely different diagnosis is not clear, as they have not released any information. The lack of transparency and in particular, lack of communication with Moscow on the detail of analyses taken, only adds to scepticism about the western narrative.
Furthermore, it’s worth considering Navalny’s popularity and reach within Russia. According to a recent poll by Levada, the opposition activist would gain around 2% of the vote in a presidential election was to be held, compared to 56% who would re-elect Vladimir Putin. In a further survey which asked people to select a candidate which they trusted the most, Navalny only came 7th, with Vladimir Putin in 1st place.  Such polls reflect the consistently high approval ratings Vladimir Putin has had for years now. Navalny on the other hand, has not gained the popularity he might have hoped given his years of journalism and anti-government activism – another reason why we haven’t seen demonstrations on the streets of Moscow since his hospitalisation.
Why would the Kremlin seek to annihilate someone who didn’t pose any real threat to established power?
If Navalny was indeed poisoned, then we have to look elsewhere for a motive. And here the old adage ‘Cui Bono?’ comes to mind.
In the last week the headlines have been dominated by the idea that the Navalny poisoning could end the Nord Stream pipeline.  What is more interesting however is the extent to which the current US administration has been fixated with the idea of stopping Nord Stream 2, no matter what. And don’t take my word for it. Mike Pompeo himself said in July this year that the US would ‘do everything’ it could to prevent Nord Stream 2. He told the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee “We need further tools. We’re prepared to use those tools should you provide them to us”.
Just what exactly these tools would consist of, other than support for sanctions, is unclear. But it’s no secret that the US has tried everything in the book to try to stop this pipeline which would guarantee Europe’s energy supply and greatly reduce US chances of competing with its own fracked gas. From sanctions, to pressurising companies and individuals, no stone has been left unturned. Now, by some twist of fate, an issue has arisen to put maximum pressure on the German government to abandon the project. The timing is extraordinary.
[b]We don’t know yet what happened to Alexei Navalny; there just hasn’t been enough evidence released. Until it is, the western narrative cannot be taken at face value, there are simply too many things that don’t add up.[/b]

The Great Novichok Poisoning Hoax 2.0

What’s going on regarding Alexey Navalny repeats the great 2018 poisoning by novichok of the Skripals in Britain hoax.
Whatever caused their illness, from which they recovered, had nothing to do with exposure to a deadly nerve agent, Russia falsely blamed for what it had nothing to do with.
What’s essential to explain, establishment media suppress time and again.

Whenever something like a Navalny incident occurs, they’re quick to blame Russia or other nations targeted by the US for regime change.
Whatever happened to Alexey Navalny wasn’t from exposure to a novichok nerve agent able to kill in minutes.
He’s very much alive and able to communicate three weeks after falling ill aboard a flight from Tomsk, Russia to Moscow.
Russia’s UN envoy Vassily Nebenzia explained what’s obvious, saying:
Quote:“This whole incident cannot but raise questions about some foul play being staged.”
Key is who benefits and who’s harmed. Russia clearly gained nothing from the Navalny incident.
Potentially it has much to lose. Nothing remotely connects the Kremlin to what happened to him.
On Friday, German BND Federal Intelligence Service head Bruno Kahl said a “secret meeting” was held on what he called a “harder” form of novichok the country’s military lab claims poisoned Navalny with no further elaboration, Der Spiegel reported, adding:
A delegation from the (pro-Western imperial tool) OPCW visited Navalny in Berlin’s Charite Hospital where he’s being treated.
In response to Reuters’ request for more information, a BND statement said the following:
Quote:“The Federal Intelligence Service will comment on any findings exclusively to the federal government and the responsible committees of the German Bundestag that meet in secret.”
In its latest edition, Der Spiegel reported the following:
Quote:“Leading politicians in Germany from all mainstream parties are demanding that construction on the natural gas pipeline Nord Stream 2 be suspended as a result of the poisoning of Alexey Navalny.” 
“Merkel’s government is so far resisting such calls,” adding:
Quote:It’s “clear that Germany’s relationship with Russia will change significantly.”
It’s “likely that the Kremlin was behind the poisoning (sic). And Russian President Vladimir Putin (sic).”
“(A) debate has erupted over which sanctions the German government should now consider applying.”
“The only penalty that would primarily hurt Moscow would be a construction stop on the almost completed Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline.”
Some members of “Merkel’s governing coalition…are increasingly demanding that the pipeline project be abandoned.”
“Within the government, however, that step remains off limits. Officially at least.”
Merkel supports its completion. At the same time, she seeks an EU response to what happened to Navalny.
Abandoning the project in favor of 30% more expensive US LNG will be economically harmful to Germany, what cool heads in the country and Merkel understand.
On Thursday, an EU Political and Security Committee meeting was held in Brussels, the Navalny issue discussed.
EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said the bloc is considering “restrictive measures” against Russia.
At the same time, his spokesman said as long as there’s uncertainty over who may be responsible for Navalny’s condition, discussing punitive measures is premature.
Without verifiable evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that does not exist, blaming Russia for what happened has no credibility.
EU officials in Berlin and Brussels admitted that numerous nations in Europe and elsewhere have access to novichok and other deadly toxins.
Despite nothing connecting Russia to Navalny’s condition, Pompeo blamed the Kremlin, saying the following:
Quote:“I think people all around the world will see this kind of activity for what it is (sic),” adding:
“And when they see the effort to poison a dissident, they recognize that there is a substantial chance that this actually came from Russia (sic).”
He declined to say how the Trump regime will respond.
DJT stressed that “(w)e haven’t had any proof yet but I will take a look.”
Russia’s Foreign Ministry slammed what it called “unfounded accusations and ultimatums,” accusing Berlin of using Navalny’s condition “as a pretext to discredit our country” unjustifiably.
In its latest edition, Germany’s DW news said “Berlin’s Justice Ministry on Friday approved a request from Moscow for legal assistance in the investigation of the suspected poisoning of opposition leader Alexei Navalny,” adding:
Quote:“Germany has tasked state prosecutors with working with Russian authorities.”
On the same day, Russian police said they asked permission from Germany authorities to question Navalny, a request virtually certain to be denied.
Russia’s Interior Ministry said it wants to send a team to work with German investigators on the Navalny case to ask “clarifying and additional questions,” adding:
Quote:It requested the presence of its team to “carry out investigative activities with Navalny, medics and (German) experts.”
On Friday, Berlin said it hadn’t received a request so far, DW adding:
Quote:“The public prosecutor’s office in Berlin said it had been instructed by state authorities in the German capital to provide legal assistance and information on Navalny’s health to Moscow.”
He “must however agree to this, the prosecutor said in a tweet.”
Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Moscow rejects false accusations and threats regarding what happened to Navalny, adding:
Quote:No evidence to open a criminal case exists.
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet lost credibility by supporting US-led Western war on Venezuela’s social democracy.
Earlier she defied reality by falsely accusing President Nicolas Maduro of “profoundly erod(ing)” the rule of law, including “human rights violations…abuses and crimes (sic).”
She’s at it again, saying through her spokesman without evidence the following on Navalny:
Quote:“There was a very serious crime committed on Russian soil (sic).” 
“There appears to to be no doubt this exotic and highly deadly substance — novichok — was used (sic).” 
“(I)t’s incumbent on the Russian authorities to investigate a crime of this severity that took place on their own territory (sic).”
No evidence of a crime against Navalny exists.
Thus, there’s no reason to conduct a criminal investigation.
As long as German authorities refuse to provide Russia with evidence of a crime it claims was committed against Navalny, the accusation is baseless.
No legitimate tribunal would pronounce guilt in a criminal case  without proof beyond a reasonable doubt.
In the case of what happened to Navalny, nothing suggests Russian responsibility for his illness.
[b]Claiming otherwise is part of longstanding unjustifiable US-led Western/establishment media supported Russia bashing.[/b]
