Navalny Novichok Hoax the Latest Invented Pretext to Bash Russia – Stephen Lendman

On Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov was asked if the Navalny incident will be a “driver of new anti-Russia sanctions?”

He explained that if Navalny’s illness hadn’t occurred, the West “would have invented something else as a pretext for additional (unlawful) sanctions,” adding:

“For this situation, (the West) ha(s) simply gone beyond the pale, beyond any sense.” 

“(T)hey demand that we ‘confess’ ” to a non-crime, to something Moscow had nothing to do with. No evidence suggests it. 

“We are asked: Don’t you believe the Bundeswehr’s German specialists? How is it possible?” 

“Their (lab) conclusions have been confirmed by the French and Swedes. Don’t you believe them, either?”

Lavrov explained as he did before that on August 27, Russia’s Prosecutor General’s Office asked Berlin to provide documented evidence — confirmed by Navalny’s DNA — backing its claim of novichok poisoning.

For nearly three weeks, Angela Merkel’s government stonewalled Moscow, providing no requested evidence because none exists.
