Navalny an Instrument of Russophobic Western Propaganda

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.orgHome – Stephen Lendman)

The August Navalny incident was the latest in a long line of Russia-bashing fabrications.

Likely orchestrated by US dark forces, ruling authorities of other Western countries are pressured, bullied, bribed, or threatened to go along in its imperial project as junior partners.

Time and again, they agree even when harming their own interests and valued relationships with non-Western states.

Rare exceptions prove the rule. Most often, European countries and Canada operate as subservient US colonies, obeying their master in Washington. 

Officials throughout Europe and elsewhere know Russia had nothing to do with what happened to Navalny.

They know his illness was unrelated to novichok or other toxins.

Russians and Berlin Charite hospital doctors treating him found no toxic or nerve agent traces in his system.

Claims otherwise by Germany’s military lab, Russophobic MPs, others European officials hostile to Moscow, and Trump regime hardliners are Big Lies.

On Monday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov spoke to his French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian by phone, saying the following:

“Having pointed out the inadmissible nature of attempts to politicize the case of Alexey Navalny, particularly on the OPCW platform…the Russian side is yet to receive a response to the official request from the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office sent to Paris in the framework of the international mechanism of legal assistance.”

Russian doctors found no “traces of weapon-grade toxic substances.”

Tests by Berlin’s “Charite clinic” were negative, no toxins “detected” in his system.

In late September, Russia’s UN envoy Vassily Nebenzia said Navalny “is not (a) topic on the agenda of any United Nations body.”

“(T)here are no grounds for that.”

What’s most important is why the incident was invented.

“Naturally, it is obvious that (dark forces behind this) want to punish Russia…over this matter,” Nebenzia explained.

He noted that Lavrov earlier stressed that if the Navalny incident hadn’t happened, something else would have been invented to unjustifiably bash Russia.

Nebenzia noted that he had a “similar feeling before the whole thing started.”

It’s been a (while since) nothing bad (was) said about Russia, no (new) measures taken.” 

“Regrettably, it was a prophetic feeling.”

Among all European countries, Britain most of all is joined at the hip with the US as a junior imperial partner.

On Monday, its OPCW delegation defied reality, claiming “no doubt” that Navalny was poisoned with novichok.

UK Foreign Secretary Dominic Rabb said the Boris Johnson regime will “look carefully at the OPCW conclusions” from its analysis of Navalny’s biological material, adding:

“(T)here is an incredibly strong case for Moscow to answer (sic).”

“We’ll have to consider what further action we take.”

The anti-Russia drumbeat continues without letup — misinformation, disinformation, fake news, and Big Lies its main weapons of mass deception.

Washington and its Western imperial partners haven’t accepted that no matter how much they bash the Russian bear, it keeps on ticking without missing a beat.

A Final Comment

On Tuesday, Reuters reported that “(b)lood samples taken from…Navalny and examined by the (OPCW) confirm the presence of a nerve agent” in the novichok family (sic),” citing unnamed sources with no credibility, adding:

“A diplomatic source and a source at the OPCW said the tests showed a nerve agent was found in his blood (sic).”

The same blood from the same person was analyzed by Russian and German Charite hospital doctors.

No novichok or other toxins were found — or in his urine, liver, or elsewhere in his system.

Claims by the pro-Western imperial tool OPCW — its phony claims of Syrian CWs use exposed — have no credibility.

Nothing the CW lapdog reports about nations on the US target list for regime change passes the smell test.
