Russian Poisoning Survivor: Trump’s Silence On Navalny Emboldens Putin | MSNBC
The chairman of the board of the Boris Nemtsov Foundation believes that attempts by the pro-Kremlin media &# 171; to blur the attempt on Alexei Navalny indicate who was involved in what happened
Russian oppositionist, chairman of the board of the Boris Nemtsov Foundation Vladimir Kara-Murza in an interview with the Russian Service «Voices of America» said that the cases of his poisoning in 2015 and 2017 are very similar to what happened to Alexei Navalny, who was taken to one of the Omsk hospitals on Thursday and is now in intensive care in a coma:
«In the situation with Alexei Navalny, this is just to the smallest detail, to the details exactly the same thing that happened to me – and coma, and shutdown of vital organs, and cerebral edema, and the fact that it was right in front of the plane. By the way, there was also a chorus of propagandists who immediately began to shout that «no one poisoned him, he ate some pills there, drank wine», etc. This is one of the strongest evidence of what it really is.».
«The most important thing now – I wish Alexey and his loved ones strength, endurance and God’s help to cope with this, stay alive, go through it, return to normal health. This is the most important thing now, and everything else will come later. But «later» – necessarily will! And it is very important that all those people who do this, who cover it up, who spread all this lies and slander, all these people should be held accountable. We see that this method – sadistic method, because it is very painful and very excruciating, I can say from myself – poisoning is becoming such a favorite, perhaps, by the method of the Kremlin special services», – said Vladimir Kara-Murza.
According to the oppositionist, the reaction of Western countries to the poisoning of Alexei Navalny is very important: «It is very important now that we are already hearing loud, clear and strong statements from the leaders of democratic countries in the European Union, Great Britain, and the United States (they are already making statements in Congress – keep this matter in the spotlight. I know for myself, I am living proof of this in the literal sense of the word – international attention can save lives».
