The embassy sent a note to the German Foreign Office

Russian journalists found out that the domestic embassy in the capital of Germany requested consular access from the local Foreign Ministry to the allegedly "poisoned" "Novichok" Alexei Navalny. The diplomats explained their request with the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.

The source told the Kommersant newspaper about this. According to article 36 of this document, consular officers can communicate and get to the citizens of the represented country. The same information was received by the Interfax agency, which noted that there was no comment from the Russian diplomatic mission yet.

At the same time, earlier American journalists reported that Navalny did not want to cooperate with Russia in his case. According to the New York Times, the Russian oppositionist said this in an interview with a German prosecutor. At the same time, Moscow had previously requested information about the blogger from Berlin. They also said that without Navalny's consent, they would not disclose information about him.

The oppositionist felt bad on the Tomsk-Moscow plane. Navalny was in a coma for almost 20 days. In Germany, where the blogger was taken for treatment, they claim that he was poisoned by Novichok. At the same time, the oppositionist himself wants to return to Russia. According to the expert, the blogger may be afraid of a real poisoning in Germany.
