“It’s funny to read all this news, but it says only one thing – or the way this news is presented in this way – that our Western partners have no moral standards and in general diplomatic work There is no lack of skills., And [have] “Reluctance to comply with international legal norms when it comes to finding facts.”
“And [West’s] Here’s the logic: ‘Look, we’ve announced … new facts discovered by German special services about the poisoning of the novel, and Moscow has been silent for two days – if it is silent, it means it is guilty.’ In my opinion the fault of this approach is obvious to any sensible person, ”Lavrov said.
On Monday, CNN and the investigative group Belingkat published a special investigation that found evidence that Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) had formed an elite team specializing in nerve agents, leaving Navalny behind for years.
Lavrov’s remarks reflect the Russian official’s first reaction, as officials have largely refrained from commenting on the findings. The Kremlin canceled its daily press briefings on Tuesday and Wednesday due to “preparations” for President Vladimir Putin’s annual news conference on Thursday.
“Such skill management and prolonged operation (Russian Federal Security Service) would not have existed without the judgment of the President of the FSB, Mr. Bortnikov. And he would never have dared to do so without the direct order of President Putin.”
Several senior officials, including Alexander Bortnikov, were subsequently banned by the European Union, saying they were “responsible for providing assistance to those involved in or involved in the poisoning of the novel”.
