    Opposition leader?
    What qualifies this person as opposition leader?
    He never received more than 2% of the vote. He seems like a right wing extremist. A puppet picked by the west

    Sanction does not achieve anything against Russia but those instigate it themselves

    Since the Germans (aka Anglo-saxons) love Navalny so much, they should make him their Queen…. sorry…. their King.
    Win-win for all!

    Germany claimed that Novichok was found in Navalny's blood, in his urine and on his skin, and in a bottle he had with him when he boarded the plane in Tomsk… Now, if there really had been a poisoning, the only person or people who could have done it are a trusted cohort following the orders of Navalny's western sponsors (Putin-hating Soros and criminal Mikhail Borisovich Khodorkovsky) in view of Navalny's constant and persistent failures over the years at destabilizing Putin and the Kremlin, and who may well have thought that Navalny serves their agenda better if he dies and becomes a "martyr" than if he stays alive and well. That is if indeed there was any Novichock anywhere on Navalny, in Navalny and in that bottle, which I seriously doubt since in view of the treatment he received at the hospital in Omsk, he would have died there had he been poisoned with Novichok. In fact, if he had really been poisoned with Novichok in his hotel room (from the bottle), he would never have made it to the airport in Tomsk alive. Novichok is an extremely fast-acting nerve agent and five times more lethal than VX.

    Navalny's entourage searched his room and found three bottles of water. Now, how on earth could they have known which one was covered in Novichok? They searched that room barefoot and with simple surgical gloves on – had there been Novichok in that room, they would in those conditions also have been poisoned.

    Note that Navalny drank some tea during an unscheduled and unplanned stop at a coffee shop in the airport in Tomsk – there again, only someone in his entourage could have put poison in his tea, if he actually was poisoned.

    I mean, think about it. First, the Russians poison him with the deadliest chemical weapon in the world, then they do their best to save his life and finally send him to Germany so that the Germans could establish that he was poisoned with the deadliest chemical weapon in the world. No one else was affected, including his assistants and entourage, and there were no protective suits around, not anyone on the plane, not a single member of the crew who attended him on that plane, not even on the Russian doctors who treated him. The whole thing beggars belief!

    The norm of today, pass judgement first and punish without a court of law making the determination with facts that are not hidden or prevented from being seen because of security reasons. Our laws are being taken to new heights.
