Navalny poisoning: team publishes explosive details and video from hotel - "Bottle not source of poison"

Update from September 17, 8:24 p.m.:

Georgij Alburow and other employees of the poisoned Kremlin critic

Alexej Navalny

were among the people who searched his hotel room after the crime.

There they looked for evidence of the attack on the Russian opposition activist.

Traces of the poison Novichok could later be found on a plastic bottle from which Navalny drank.

But now the

Navalny team came

to a new understanding of the exact circumstances.

"The bottle was probably not the source of the poison," said Alburow, who works for Navalny's anti-corruption foundation, on


on Thursday evening


"Navalny only drank from it, later traces of the poison were found on the bottle."

Navalny poisoning: Kremlin critic's team accuses Russian police of inaction

Nevertheless, the plastic bottle is proof that Navalny's poisoning must have taken place in the hotel.

In order to be able to prove this, so Alburow, one wanted to view the footage of the

recordings of the surveillance cameras of

the hotel.

However, the

hotel management

should not have allowed this.

In the course of this, Alburov accused the authorities of inaction: “The police monitored every step of Aleksei Navalny and now they have the videos from the surveillance cameras from the hotel.

And what do you do with it?

Откуда взялась злосчастная бутылка?

Давайте объясним, откуда взялось то, про что нам непрерывно задают вопросы.

Так называемая "бутылка с« Новичком "" ну, а точнее, обычная пластиковая бутылка из-под воды, на которой потом в немецкой лаборатории обнаружили следы боевого отравляющего вещества.

Это бутылка из номера в томской гостинице, где останавливался сам Навальный и вся наша съемочнапя.

Перенесемся обратно в 20 августа.

В этот день часть нашей команды улетела в Москву, часть осталась в Томске доделывать видео.

В полете Алексей потерял сознание и начал задыхаться, самолёт экстренно сел.

Почти сразу сотрудники ФБК, которые остались в Томске, узнали о случившемся.

В этот момент была сделана единственно возможная вещь.

Open to the public

В том числе, и бутылки из-под гостиничной воды.

Как это происходило, вы можете посмотреть на этом видео.

Никакой особой надежды что-то такое обнаружить не было.

Но поскольку нам было абсолютно ясно, что Навальный не "слегка заболел" не "перегрелся" и Рафаэлкой здесь не поможешь, было решено забрать все, что может хоть как-то гипотетически пригодиться, и передать это врачам в Германии.

То, что дело расследовать в России не будут, тоже было достаточно очевидно.

Так и вышло: прошел почти месяц, Россия так и не признала отравление Алексея.

Спустя две недели именно на бутылке из томского номера немецкая лаборатория обнаружила следчка "Новила следчы".

А потом еще три лаборатории, которые брали анализы у Алексея, подтвердили, что Навальный был. Амел амел амел.

Теперь мы понимаем: это было сделано до того, как он покинул свой номер, чтобы поехать в аэропорт.

Сегодня в 20.00 в передаче «Россия Будущего» на ютюб-канале Навальный LIVE Георгий Албуров @alburov расскаджет.

However, this should not be an obstacle to the establishment of bilateral cooperation, said the Russian Foreign Ministry and went on to say: "The Russian side confirmed its willingness to cooperate." However, Moscow was still waiting for a reaction from the responsible authorities in Germany.

In the following the Instagram post




into German:

 “This is followed by an explanation of the questions that we have been asked all the time in the past few days.

Especially about the bottle with 'Novitschok', an ordinary plastic bottle with water on which traces of the chemical warfare agent were later found in a German laboratory.

The bottle came from a room in a hotel in Tomsk, where Navalny and his entire film crew stayed, on August 20 when part of the team flew back to Moscow.

Some stayed back in Tomsk to finish the video.

During the flight, Navalny passed out and began to choke.

The pilot then tried to land immediately.

Almost at the same time, the FBK employees who remained in Tomsk learned of the incident.

They reacted very quickly.

They called a lawyer and went to Navalny’s hotel room to record, describe and package everything they found, including the bottle of water.

You can see exactly how that happened in the video.

The hope of finding something was not particularly great.

It was clear to us, however, that Navalny was not 'easily ill' or 'overheated'.

Rafaelka couldn't help either.

So we hypothetically decided to hand over useful things to the doctors in Germany.

It was immediately clear to us that the case would not have been investigated in Russia.

And so it happened - even after a month Russia did not recognize the poisoning of Navalny.

Two weeks after the incident, the German laboratory found traces of 'Novitschok' on the bottle from Tomsk.

Three other laboratories then confirmed that Alexei had been poisoned as a result.

We now also realize that Navalny was poisoned before he left for the airport.

More details will be revealed today at 8 p.m. in the 'Russia of the Future' program on the YouTube channel Navalny LIVE. "

At the same time,

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov called

on Tuesday in a phone call with his German colleague

Heiko Maas (SPD)

Berlin again for direct cooperation.

"We can not be satisfied with references to the" independence "of the judiciary and the need for coordination with A. Navalny himself or his relatives and confidants," said the Russian Foreign Ministry in Moscow.

It referred to corresponding previous agreements on mutual legal assistance in criminal matters.
