Russian President Putin suggests Navalny may have poisoned himself

In an attempt to get discard the accusations against him, Putin suggests that the Kremlin critic, Alexei Navalny, may have poisoned himself to paint the Russian authorities in a bad light.

Navalny was poisoned last month with the nerve agent Novichok and was undergoing treatment in Germany.

The critic posted a photo of himself on Instagram, walking down a flight of stairs and described his recovery process, thanking the doctors responsible for the treatment. He also mocks Putin’s suggestion and says that “Good version. I believe that it deserves the most careful study. Cooked ‘Novichok’ in the kitchen. Took a small sip from my flask on the plane. Fell into a coma.”

Putin critics have been frequently poisoned with nerve agents, resulting in death in some cases.

Involvement of world leaders

Leaders all over the world have been questioning the Russian authorities about this incident. Even so, the Kremlin has denied any involvement in the case. Vladimir Putin had a conversation with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, in an attempt to explain the poisoning. However, this resulted in a serious setback in Russia’s relations with Europe.

During the call, Putin suggested that Navalny may have poisoned himself, which was described such a rough explanation that it was considered to be insulting. A French official said that Macron was ‘furious’ and had called the use of chemical weapons a ‘red line.’ The project to build Nord Stream 2, which is an undersea gas pipeline that aims to connect Russia and Germany, may come under jeopardy after this episode.

President Donald Trump also faces backlash on his silence regarding this matter.
