    Not only the guy has no presence and doesn't pose any threat to putin but also Poisoned with the deadliest poison by the deadliest intelligence and didn't die, either putin is the dumbest person on earth and and that is not likely or all of this it's just a play.

    This guy's poisoning raises questions. Why was such an ineffective toxic agent used? Even in the Middle Ages, assassins used more potent poisons. And here Putin's intelligence agency use this substance, after which a mounth later, the person is in good condition and is able to give interviews. There are many unclear things in this story.

    Total hoax! If a meteor came from space and hit the earth the EU and the US would still blame Russia. Sounds like the WMD hoax in 2003.

    If Russia to poison all bloggers like Navalny, there will be a lot bodies out there.
    Incompetent Intelligence Services is normal for US and it's EU lap dogs but not for Russia. Other wise, US and EU Politicians wouldn't be waking up and going to sleep with Putin on their mind.
    Give it a few more weeks and in true US Intelligence style, Navalny will be tossed away like a used condom.

    Does the neoliberal have NO quest for the truth, it saves a lot more energy and time facing facts than constantly creating myths of epic proportions.
