MSM Putting Putin In Center Of Navalny's Novichok Drama. But What About The Evidence?

On September 23rd, Russian opposition figure Alexey Navalny was released from Berlin’s Charité hospital after spending 32 days as an inpatient.

The hospital said in a statement that the Russian opposition politician’s condition had “improved sufficiently for him to be discharged from acute inpatient care”.

He was allegedly poisoned with Novichok, according to the German government, and he somehow made a complete recovery from a chemical agent that’s supposed to kill anybody it comes into contact with.

“The patient’s condition had improved sufficiently for him to be discharged from acute inpatient care. Alexei Navalny had been receiving treatment at Charité for a total of 32 days, of which 24 days were spent in intensive care. Based on the patient’s progress and current condition, the treating physicians believe that complete recovery is possible. However, it remains too early to gauge the potential long-term effects of his severe poisoning,” the hospital’s statement said.

Notably, the hospital’s statements – the initial one when he was admitted, and the 4th and 5th which were published after the announcement that he was poisoned with Novichok – contain actually no mention of him being poisoned by the chemical agent.

“The effect of the poison – namely, the inhibition of cholinesterase in the body – was confirmed by multiple tests in independent laboratories.

As a result of this diagnosis, the patient is now being treated with the antidote atropine. Alexei Navalny’s prognosis remains unclear; the possibility of long-term effects, particularly those affecting the nervous system, cannot be excluded,” reads the initial statement.

The fourth statement reads the following:

“The reason for this improvement is the gradual recovery of cholinesterase activity. Alexei Navalny continues to be treated in an intensive care unit and remains on a ventilator. Recovery is likely to be lengthy. It is still too early to gauge the long-term effects which may arise in relation to this severe poisoning.”

And the fifth one:

“The patient has been removed from his medically induced coma and is being weaned off mechanical ventilation. He is responding to verbal stimuli. It remains too early to gauge the potential long-term effects of his severe poisoning.”

None of them mention Novichok, rather cholinesterase.

In a new post on Instagram, Navalny complained that looking in the mirror, he thought he now resembled a Lord of the Rings character. He thanked the doctors at Charité for their “unbelievable work” and said he had asked to go somewhere “with trees” for rehabilitation and daily physiotherapy.

Первый раз меня подвели к зеркалу, через 24 дня в реанимации (из которых 16 в коме). Из зеркала на меня посмотрел персонаж фильма «Властелин колец». И поверьте, это был совсем не эльф. Я ужасно расстроился: подумал, что меня никогда не выпишут. Но врачи продолжали делать своё чудо, я занимался с физиотерапевтом, ел, старался больше спать (самая большая проблема до сих пор). Последние дни мне даже уже разрешали выходить на общий балкон 2 раза по 5 минут в день. Правда, от балкона было ещё больше тоски: погода отличная, солнце светит, внизу какие-то парки и деревья, а я в палате. Но вот день пришёл – ура! После 32 дней в госпитале врачи решили, что дальнейшее восстановление требует не стационарного лечения, а нормализации жизни. Ходить, проводить время с семьей. Прогрузиться в рутину ежедневных движений. И вот – хоп – я уже ковыляю по парку в штанах на три размера больше. Первым делом попросил отвезти меня куда-нибудь, где есть деревья. Планы пока простые: физиотерапевт каждый день. Возможно, реабилитационный центр. Стоять на одной ноге. Полностью вернуть контроль над пальцами. Держать баланс. Забавно, я мечтал научиться ездить на вейк-борде за катером по волне и научился этим летом. А теперь учусь стоять на одной ноге. Всякие смешные штуки обнаружились. Например, я не могу кидать мяч левой рукой. Даже поймать могу, а кинуть – нет. Мозг просто не хочет делать это движение. Или писать от руки. До последнего времени не получалось в строчку. Все время в столбик начинал. Реабилитация, в общем. Ещё раз огромное спасибо всей команде врачей клинике «Шарите» и профессору Экарду лично. Они сделали невероятную работу. Всем вам спасибо за поддержку 💪. Она была и остаётся очень важной. Не думайте, что я не знаю, что пишите. Как только я начал более-менее соображать, мне читали комменты. Буду, кстати, стараться немного больше времени проводить в соцсетях. Вчера приходила нейропсихолог, делала тесты, проверяя, не поглупел ли я. Спрашиваю: чего делать, чтобы быстрее вернуться с точки зрения не только физической, но и головы. Ответ понравился: читайте больше, пишите в соцсети. Играйте в видеоигры. Надо узнать, можно ли получить в больнице рецепт на PS 5.

A post shared by Алексей Навальный (@navalny) on

“There are several funny things going on. For example I can’t throw a ball with my left hand. I can catch it, but not throw it, my brain doesn’t want to make this movement.”

He said a neurologist had told him to improve his mental functions again he should read, write on social media and play video games, and said he was keen to acquire a PlayStation 5.

Which is probably the normal reaction from somebody who allegedly was poisoned on order by the Russian government and somehow survived.

Meanwhile, MSM French outlet Le Monde published a report claiming that Russian President Vladimir Putin, in an interview with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, suggested that Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny could have taken a nerve agent from the Novichok group.

The information is based on an entirely unnamed source.

“The head of the Russian state … considered that Alexei Navalny could have taken the poison himself – for an unspecified reason,” the newspaper wrote.

According to it, during the conversation, Macron clearly indicated that Novichok could not be used by a private structure, and added that in this regard, “official explanations” from Moscow are needed. In response, Putin allegedly spoke with contempt of Navalny, calling him “an ordinary troublemaker on the Internet,” who allegedly had already feigned illness in the past.

In addition, according to the publication, the President of the Russian Federation accused the oppositionist of “illegal actions” and said that he used the Anti-Corruption Fund to blackmail a number of Russian officials and civil servants.

Soon after the online publication of Le Monde, Alexei Navalny commented on Putin’s alleged statement on Instagram:

“Vladimir Putin told his French colleague: Navalny could have swallowed this poison himself. Good version. Before that I agreed with my wife, friends and colleagues that if the Ministry of Health insists that I be taken to Germany for treatment, they would not allow me to do it. in the Omsk morgue, where they would establish the cause of death “lived long enough” – this is the ultimate goal of my cunning plan. But Putin outplayed me. You just can’t fool him. As a result, I, like a fool, lay in a coma for 18 days, but did not achieve my goal. The provocation failed!”

It, however, appears that the bottle with alleged Novichok traces is now entirely disregarded. The same bottle that was presented as a key ‘evidence’ confirming the Novichok attack.

And now, similarly to the story with Sergey and Yuliya Skripal, the story is entirely spinning out of control, with the simple idea of spreading hysteria. Any facts and evidence is disregarded, they’re, as usual, not needed.

Finally, on September 24th, Russia’s mission to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has asked Germany to make public all the data, at its disposal, related to the alleged poisoning.

This was needed since Berlin apparently refused any calls to provide any evidence or data. Aleksandr Shulgin, envoy to the chemical weapons watchdog said that Germany refuses to cooperate.

“We requested the Germans to provide us with exhaustive information about results of analyses, blood samples, biological samples, in one word – all the materials in relation with this.”

“I’ve forwarded my personal letter to the Director General of the OPCW, Fernando Arias, briefing him about our note to the Germans and asking him to make this available for all member states of the chemical weapons organization,” Shulgin said.
