OREANDA-NEWS. Russia was not provided with evidence over the case of alleged poisoning of the opposition politician Aleksey Navalny. This was stated by the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Maria Zakharova.

“There is only one question here: give these materials to the Russian side so that they can be made part of the pre-trial check that is now underway, and, accordingly, take all other procedural measures and steps,” the diplomat said. According to her, “there is the simplest way to resolve all the doubts of all people on planet Earth: give the formula, give the materials that you allegedly found, if you not only talk about them”. “What could be easier than to provide these materials? These materials are… provided to anyone who does not participate in it at all… but at the same time, being provided to specialized bodies like the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, these materials… the formulas were crossed out… The Russian side was not provided with anything, and there is absolutely nothing that could be considered as a kind of fact base,” Zakharova said on the air of the radio station Echo of Moscow.
