OREANDA-NEWS. The materials about the alleged poisoning of the opposition politician, founder of the Anti-Corruption Fund, Aleksey Navalny, are the legalization of materials from the American special services, Russian President с said.

“We understand very well what it is. This is the legalization of materials from the American special services,” the head of state said during a press conference. “If this is so – and this is so, I assure you – it means that this patient of the Berlin clinic is supported by the US special services,” he noted.

At the same time, the President added that this fact does not mean the need to poison Navalny. “But this does not mean at all that it is necessary to poison him, who needs him then? If they really wanted to, they probably would have done it to the end,” Putin said.

In addition, the Russian President called the materials, which confirm the fact of Navalny’s poisoning, a trick to attack the top officials and pull the oppositionist up to their level.
