Merkel searches for way out of Nord Stream 2 – Navalny MESS she created

Via Reuters (https://www.reuters.com/article/russia-politics-navalny-idUSL8N2G80ZE)…

Berlin prosecutors said on Friday they would investigate the case of Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny, who is being treated in Berlin for suspected poisoning, and hand information to Moscow – if he agreed.

The German government had earlier said it would not investigate the case because the poisoning took place in Russia.

It has accused Russia of trying to poison Navalny and demanded an explanation from Moscow for what it said was the banned Soviet-era nerve agent Novichok found in his body by German doctors after he was airlifted from Russia for treatment.

Moscow has insisted it has seen no evidence he was poisoned and earlier on Friday said it would ask to send investigators to Berlin in response to the German demands.

The prosecutor’s office in the German capital said it had been commissioned by the regional justice department “to provide legal assistance over the Russian request for legal assistance and to obtain information on the state of health of A. Navalny – subject to his consent”.

Is the West ever get tired of discrediting Russia? Novichok – Skripal – Navalny…If Russia had really intended on killing these 3 people, it would have engaged a professional instead of a novice to bungle the killing attempts. And the UK has it’s dirty hand in this too – doing the dirty work for the Yanks.

Well the German national service, the BND, was the authority which oversaw the MH17 crash site in the Donbass.

The operation was disgrace. They had the Dutch police running from Holland to the crash site, by Jeep, to ensure they all had the correct “song sheet”.

The Germans give the impression they are a well organised society.

This is very far from reality.

Media and political class have utter disdain for their population. It would be just as silly claiming Russia tried to use a nuclear bomb to rid of a political clown. They think their people are stupid and make these type claims. Average person needs to start requiring proof, not highly likely, high confidence, anonymous source from (add gov. Branch). Last story was Sweden and France concur. Of course they would. Of course they will never show proof to Russia, as by protocol. They will just continue their empty accusations and stupidity never holds them accountable. Any normal functional state would… Read more »

Good analysis….except no mention of the possibility that Navalny or someone on his “behalf” might have staged “something” in order to get him out of the country and non returnable in order to avoid facing two cases of potentially ruinous litigation against him. Has been an article in Russian press that similar chlorest. inhibitors can be used when intubation ventilation is done.

God damn it!! Merkel needs to go, NOW! What a total fcuking vassal shill slave she is. Do I feel sorry for her? Not really! If she REALLY gave a fcuk about Germany like what President Putin — the modern world’s GREATEST leader EVAR!! — has done & does for Mother Russia, she would resign her post to avoid the feeling of BETRAYING her German electorate. But nope, she plays these stupid fcuking political games like the typical unreliable FemiNazi you see grazing in America’s 2 main corrupt political parties.

Well, if you ever look at the History of authentic black conservative citizenry especially during the 1960s or its leadership (the operative word is authentic — not political frauds like you see in the DemonRATic Party or the fake BLM) throughout the US, they NEVER mince words unlike our “mild model immigrant” Asian community (Indian, Chinese, etc.) compatriots who prefer to stay silent so as not to rock the boat. Understandable. That’s probably why blacks in the US face more institutional oppression/racism compared to other immigrant communities because they don’t tolerate bullshit.

If the story of the Kremlin ordering the secret services to ‘bump off’ Navalney with novichok is true, then they are either incomprtent or novichok is fractionally less dangerous than out of date sour cream..

You might be correct. Even The Saker thinks “Russians are the dumbest idiots on the planet!.” Not only did they use exactly the same “Novichok” (or so says the German media), they allowed Navalnyi’s aircraft to make an emergency landing and the FSB did nothing to prevent an ambulance to bring Navalnyi to a hospital. Apparently, the FSB does not even have the authority to prevent such urgent treatment of the man they want to kill. Heck, they can even create a traffic jam to prevent Navalnyi from getting to a hospital. How incompetent! Even worse, these accursed Russki doctors gave Navalnyi… Read more »

Yes, it’s rather perplexing how people can conduct themselves in such an utterly stupid manner. I’ve been trying to get my head around it for weeks now. It’s a real brainteaser all right. All it’s given me so far is a migraine and I haven’t even recovered from all the other brainteasing migraines that seem to come at the most auspicious times for someone.

I have it on anonymous but very reliable sources that both are probably true. I’d even have my sources back me up here but they seem to be out to lunch at the moment. No matter. Just take it on faith.

Each time the Russians are making headway in any situation something like this crops up. Now coincidences maybe happen occasionally but 3 times now we have had the same character assassination of the Russian government. The Americans wanted the Russians sanctioned over Crimea and were struggling to get enough of the Europeans to back them. Suddenly we have MH17 shot out of the sky and blamed on the Russians and everyone agrees with the Americans plan of sanctions. The west wanted the world cup taken off Russia and in March of that year we have to Skripal incident, but this… Read more »

The EU scares the shit out of me because its region, essentially, is the capital of the enlightened European Caucasian race. A region that has spawned & pioneered great achievements in the Arts, Sciences & Technology. I’ll give it that. After all, where would I be today if it weren’t for the influences of Computer Science pioneer Professor Niklaus Wirth of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology for his most notable achievements in algorithms, data structures & the highly influential Pascal, Modula & Oberon programming languages. And I love listening to Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart & Handel – quintessential Europeans. Divine… Read more »

German logic is amazing. First, a Green MP declares that if Navalny wasn’t poisoned by the Russian state, why then does he need all of the security around him, as if he’s somehow managed to prove a negative via some German version of circular logic. Then, there’s this latest bit. They send off samples to 2 other ‘novichok-certifed’ labs that back them up. So, what’s that prove exactly? The issue was never the German’s findings. The issue was the ‘chain of custody’. if someone other than the Russians slipped him a novi-mickey after he left Omsk, their 3 lab PR… Read more »

So, Navalny won’t allow release of medical findings to Russia but wants to return there. Lovely. Now, when some irate Russian puts a bullet in his head, the West can complete its Putin Passion Play.

PS: As to Navalny’s bottle genie: Maria, Maria………where for art thou, Maria?

Anyone on the Planet that actually takes time to think & look at facts Rather then Blindly Follow the 5 Eyes Alliance Influenced News Media ( USA, England, New Zealand, Australia & Canada ) Will realize that if Russia wanted Navalny gone they would have made it happen a long time ago & it would not have been with an 18th Century method.
It is beyond ridiculous that Russia despite being a World Military & technology warfare superpower is constantly bumbling these so called “poisonings”
