BERLIN/MOSCOW (Reuters) - Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, who is in intensive care in a Berlin hospital, was poisoned with a Soviet-style Novichok nerve agent in an attempt to murder him, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Wednesday.

She said Berlin now expected Moscow to explain itself and that Germany would consult its NATO allies about how to respond, raising the prospect of new Western sanctions on Russia, sending Russian asset prices tumbling.

Moscow has denied involvement in the incident and the Russian foreign ministry said Germany's assertion was not backed by evidence, complaining about the way Germany had chosen to release information about Navalny.


Another adversary of Putin's silenced. Another case of poisoning with a substance that originates in Russia.

There's not much more to say than that.

Putin is a dictator, plain and simple. He has used his stranglehold on the media to blame all of Russia's woes on a Western bogeyman. Meanwhile he and his gangster friends rob the Russian people of billions of dollars. And if anyone shines too bright a light on that corruption the best they can hope for is prison.

The Russian people deserve better. Unfortunately as long as Putin has the power nothing is going to change.

They want people to know. They will deny it of course but they want the fear established. Not the first time this has happened. Even if it was proven so what. Nobody is going to do anything about it.

No. if they wanted people to know . They would just send the russian military in uniform to his house and blow it up ... Simple.

Now we established they don't want people to know. it means it needs to be done by stealth ..

If you have a 1 of a kind gun in your city and you wanna take someone out. You gonna use that gun ? Or some other random one so it can't be traced back to you ? ...

Okay the random one right !

If it was proven then the russian public will see the actual evidence that links it to putin. More likely to start a shift in opinions of him . He has high approval raitngs...

i don't get it why its so hard to show definitive evidence . These high extrodinary claims. which requires the same level of evidence .. not of this speculation bs lol

Merkyl is the Hillary Clinton of Germany. You can’t trust a story in which she is involved. Also, it is a little too obvious to use that particular nerve agent. I suspect some sort of setup here.
