In the case of Alexei Navalny, a mysterious figurant appeared - his associate Maria Pevchikh. The girl helps the oppositionist in preparing materials for his blog.
Even his assistants did not know about the politician's secret companion. For about ten years Maria Pevchikh has been living in London, she is familiar with the local political elite and Russian émigré oppositionists. But if necessary, the girl flies to Russia.
It was she who accompanied Alexei Navalny on his last trip to Tomsk, and when he fell into a coma, she flew with him on a special plane to Berlin. It is noteworthy that the father of the oppositionist's associate is a microbiologist working with hazardous materials like virus strains.
The version about the involvement of Maria Pevchikh in the probable poisoning of Alexei Navalny might look anecdotal, but the girl herself is mysteriously silent. It is not known exactly where Maria Pevchikh is now. There is information that she is somewhere in Europe. Attempts by Russian investigators to question her have so far been unsuccessful.
Aleksandr Malkevich, a member of the Public Chamber of Russia, believes that if Maria Pevchikh had anything to do with the Russian state, there would already be a cry from everywhere: "Aha, Kremlin agents are covering their tracks." He noted that a comrade-in-arms of the oppositionist could give a press conference in Europe and withdraw all charges. However, she remains silent.
According to Malkevich, the current situation seems strange to none of the Western partners. He concluded that it looked very suspicious.
Let us remind you that Alexei Navalny has been undergoing treatment at the Berlin clinic "Charite" for three weeks already. The West believes that the oppositionist is allegedly poisoned by a new version of the Novichok nerve poison.
