Kremlin plays three wise monkeys speaking about Navalny’s poisoning

The Kremlin currently sees no reason to initiate a criminal investigation into the alleged poisoning of Aleksei Navalny, and considers accusations against the Russian authorities nothing but “empty noise,” said Dmitry Peskov, press secretary of the Russian president.
“First, one needs to identify the substance and establish what caused this condition. There must be a reason for the investigation. For the time being, the patient is in a coma,” said Peskov, adding that the investigation should be based on the fact of poisoning with a particular substance.
Peskov noted that the version of Navalny’s poisoning can only be viewed as one of the versions of what happened to the opposition politician. According to Putin’s press secretary, there are “many other medical versions”, including taking certain medications and body’s response to certain conditions.”All these versions were reviewed by Omsk doctors and specialists from Moscow in the very first hours after the incident,” the Kremlin spokesman said, stressing that Russian doctors did not find signs of the poisoning in Navalny’s body.Dmitry Peskov criticized the West for trying to present the version of Navalny’s poisoning as the only version of what happened to him, and noted that the medical analytics on the issue among Russian and German doctors is the same, “but the conclusions are different.”
