Poland’s Foreign Ministry has denied the reports of a telephone conversation with Berlin during which the poisoning of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was allegedly discussed. This was reported by RIA Novosti.
According to reports, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that Belarus had intercepted a conversation between Warsaw and Berlin during which a German representative said that confirmation of Navalny's poisoning was not so important.
"We refute the Belarusian reports that a telephone conversation, during which the authorities of the two states allegedly had to admit that no poisoning of Alexei Navalny had taken place, was held on the Warsaw-Berlin line," the statement said.
The Russian oppositionist was hospitalized in serious condition. The press service reported that he had toxic poisoning, and suggested that he could have been poisoned. On August 21, doctors at the Omsk hospital allowed Navalny to be transported to Germany.
As reported by Daily Mail with reference to Vladimir Uglev, a former Soviet scientist who helped invent Novichok, assassins could have sprinkled a deadly toxin on Navalny's socks or underwear.
