Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry: Kremlin to Stop Massacre of Opposition Leaders

Oleksiy Navalniy Russia

The German government has released evidence of chemical traces from the group “Novichok” in the samples taken from Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny, the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine announced in a statement.

“We strongly condemn another criminal act by the Russian authorities, which continues to attack democracy and human rights in Russia and abroad. We are sure that the international community must respond appropriately to the Kremlin’s inhumane massacre of opposition politicians. Only a chorus of protest by the civilised world, including sanctions, can force the Russian government to stop committing crimes against leading opposition politicians and entire states, brutally violating human rights and destroying the legal foundations of the world order,” the diplomats said.

To recap, Alexey Navalny felt sick on the plane during the flight “Moscow-Tomsk” on 20 August. The plane made an emergency landing in Omsk. Navalny was brought to the intensive care unit of a local hospital, connected to an artificial lung, and then slipped into a coma.

In turn, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation accused Brussels and Washington in the “suspicious haste with the version of Alexei Navalny deliberate intoxication.” They urged German doctors not to allow the use of their laboratory tests for political purposes.
