Let us remind you that Alexei Navalny was poisoned with poison from the Novichok group of chemical warfare agents of neuroparalytic action. This was confirmed on Tuesday by experts from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). They noted that while this particular substance is not formally on the banned list, its structure is close to four other agents that were banned by the organization in November 2019..

After reading the report of the OPCW, we demand that the FSB of Russia initiate a criminal case under Article 355 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation on the fact of illegal production and trafficking of prohibited chemical weapons.<br>The investigators of the service will have three days to make a procedural decision.

Atlantic Council expert Mark Simakovsky believes that Navalny’s decision to initiate a case is quite reasonable.

“Navalny is not the kind of person who will remain above the fight without an appropriate response from his side. He will use this situation and pester the Kremlin to the end. His lawyers will try to take advantage of this situation, since there are clear signs that the Kremlin is behind his poisoning, ”the expert said..

Mark Simakovsky adds that one should not expect cooperation from the FSB in the investigation into the poisoning of Navalny. The expert adds that the oppositionist uses the current situation as a springboard for his political activities. Navalny himself said that Russian President Vladimir Putin was behind his poisoning..

“I really believe, and I am sure, that Russian President Vladimir Putin is behind the attempt on my life. And it seems to me that all the events that are happening right now indicate this. If he wanted an investigation, this case would have already been solved, “- said Alexei Navalny.

Mark Simakovski notes that the Russian president is responsible for other poisonings.

“Putin is responsible for eliminating the Kremlin’s political opponents abroad: the poisoning of Litvinenko, Chechens in Eastern Europe. The poisoning with a nerve agent that is under his control is not an accident, given the fact that the Russian regime has used it in the past. The Kremlin believes that they can act in this way without significant consequences. The Kremlin expects insignificant people to be punished. But the sanctions against Nord Stream 2 would not have gone unnoticed by them, and would have become a sharp turn on the part of the EU in this matter. But so far, these are all just statements, ”says Mark Simakovski.

According to the head of the legal department of the FBK, the FSB investigators must decide within three days whether or not to initiate a criminal case. In turn, the press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov said that experts from the OPCW will have access to all the necessary materials to investigate the poisoning of Alexei Navalny.

On October 7, Germany and France announced in a joint statement that they would propose to the EU countries to impose sanctions on Russia due to the poisoning of Navalny. The proposal was supported by the Netherlands, UK and Ukraine.
