Three laboratories have found "Newbie"
The Cabinet of Ministers of the Federal Republic of Germany made a report on the situation with Alexei Navalny, who became ill on August 20 on the plane. According to the German authorities, three independent laboratories in France and Sweden carried out tests of the oppositionist.
Experts from these centers have confirmed the presence of a substance of the Novichok group in Navalny's samples, RIA Novosti reports.
At the same time, Germany connected the OPCW to the analysis of Navalny's samples, the same agency adds.
German government spokesman Steffen Seibert wrote the same on Twitter. The politician's subscribers were surprised why Berlin does not share the results with Moscow, and pointed out in the comments that Sweden and France cannot be independent parties. After all, the first country is a member of NATO, and the second is also a member of the EU. One of the netizens noted that the samples could have been contaminated in Germany.
Alexei Navalny was hospitalized on August 20 straight from the plane, where he suddenly became ill. Omsk doctors came to the conclusion that the blogger has a metabolic disorder. Relatives took Navalny to Germany, where he was placed in the Charite clinic. Later, Berlin said that the oppositionist had been poisoned with a substance from the Novichok group. German journalists found out that a new type of poison was allegedly used.
In early September, it became known that Navalny had come to his senses, but could not talk. In Russia, however, attention is drawn to Germany's refusal to provide information about the opposition's analyzes, which resembles the secret Skripal case.
