Poisoning of Alexei Navalny: 45 states demand explanations from Russia


Published on :

Forty-five states parties, including France, on Tuesday informed the OPCW’s executive council of their willingness to formally ask Russia questions about the Navalny poisoning in 2020. Russia has 10 days to respond.

A group of forty-five countries, including the United States, Canada and members of the European Union (including France) demanded, Tuesday, October 5, before the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) that Russia to provide explanation after poisoning in 2020 of opponent Alexei Navalny.

For Western experts, the opponent to the Kremlin fell victim to the Soviet-era nerve agent Novichok in August 2020. Alexeï Navalny was treated in Germany before being imprisoned on his return to Russia. The latter blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin for the poisoning attempt he said he had been the victim of. Moscow has always denied any involvement.

“They will officially ask Russia questions about the poisoning of Navalny under Article 9 of the Convention,” the British delegation said on Twitter.

“It is essential that Russia sets out in detail the measures taken to investigate and shed light on the use of a chemical weapon on its territory,” it is written in an excerpt from the statement of the 45 countries, posted on Twitter by the British delegation.

Moscow has 10 days to respond to questions posed by countries, in accordance with the rules of the OPCW whose members met this week to discuss progress in eliminating chemical weapons around the world.

“Russia has so far failed to provide a credible explanation for the incident”

“The United States and many members of the international community have long requested clarification on Russia’s attempted assassination of Alexei Navalny with a chemical weapon on August 20, 2020 and his intention to cooperate with the OPCW.” Washington said in a statement.

“Given its status as a State Party to the Chemical Weapons Convention, Russia’s continued lack of transparency and cooperation regarding poisoning is of particular concern,” Washington added.

Western countries in particular ask Russia to describe, in detail, the measures it has taken since August 20, 2020 to follow up on the incident. They are also surprised that Moscow has not yet received experts from the OPCW on its territory to help in the investigation, despite an invitation made to this effect in October 2020.

“Despite several requests” by many states parties, “Russia has so far failed to provide a credible explanation for the incident,” the 45 countries said in an official document posted on the Russian Federation’s website. OPCW. “We are not aware of any ongoing internal investigations in Russia.”
