Russia alleges Navalny could have been poisoned in Germany

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday that Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny could have been poisoned in Germany or on the plane to Berlin.

“We have all grounds to believe that everything, which had happened to him from the point of view of warfare agent’s entering into his body, could have happened in Germany or on the plane where he was loaded and sent to the Charite clinic,” Lavrov said.

Blood samples taken from Navalny confirmed the presence of a Novichok nerve agent, the global Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has said.

Navalny, 44, received treatment in Berlin.
