Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that some of the people who accompanied Alexei Navalny on his last trip had begun "quietly moving to Germany."
The Foreign Minister noted that this is happening against the background of unfounded accusations against Russia from Germany and other Western partners.
"All this is very unpleasant and leads to serious thoughts," RIA Novosti quoted Lavrov as saying.
Earlier, the transport department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Siberian Federal District said that one of Navalny's escorts avoided testifying, and on August 22 flew to Germany. In total, there were six people with the blogger, five of them answered questions.
Recall that Alexei Navalny was hospitalized on August 20 in a hospital in Omsk after he felt bad during an air flight from Tomsk to Moscow. A few days later he was taken to a clinic in Berlin. Later, German experts said that they found traces of intoxication in Navalny's body, belonging to the poison of the Novichok group. In this regard, the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation sent a request to Germany, consisting of 20 questions about the blogger's treatment, his diagnosis and the results of the examination.
Note that the Omsk Ministry of Health stated that the patient had no clinical picture characteristic of poisoning with a substance from this group. It was also reported that the Kremlin condemned attempts to link Russia to the "poisoning" of Navalny.
