The US State Department is confident that the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) was involved in the poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.
Reported by The Hill.
вЂњThe United States believes that the officers of the Russian Federal Security Service used the nerve agent Novichok to poison Mr. Navalny. There is no plausible explanation for the poisoning of Mr. Navalny, other than the participation of the Russian government in it and the responsibility for it,вЂќ said a spokesman for the US State Department ...
He also noted that Russia has put forward many, often conflicting, conspiracy theories.
вЂњOf course, President Putin and the Russian government would like us to believe otherwise,вЂќ he said.
By the way, according to Putin's press secretary, the recent video about Navalny's phone call to FSB officer Konstantin Kudryavtsev, who participated in the operation to poison him, should be treated as вЂњa manifestation, according to Freud, of obsession with his own codpiece zone.вЂќ
