Washington: US President Donald Trump’s statement comes in the case of the chemical intoxication of Alexei Navalny, the rival of Russian President Vladimir Putin. He said no evidence of a chemical attack on Navalni has yet been found, but if such a thing comes to light he will be very angry.
Trump’s reaction to Navalni differs from Germany’s
Donald Trump said: “I don’t know what happened. But whatever happens, it is very unfortunate and frightening. It shouldn’t have happened. He added that we have not found any evidence relating to the chemical attack on Navalni. However, I will keep an eye on the matter. Germany had said in this case that Navalny had been poisoned and that the poison was Novichok, a chemical weapon made in the Russian laboratory. Although Trump said there may be some truth to Germany’s claims, but we haven’t found any such thing yet. If that happens, I will be very angry.
The European Union threatened to ban
In all this case, the European Union has taken a firm stand and threatened to ban Russia. The European Union had said that if Russia did not cooperate with the investigation, the European Union would impose strict restrictions on Russia. European Union foreign policy chief Joseph Burrell said: “Chemical weapons must not be used under any circumstances, they are against international law and human rights.” He asked Russia to cooperate with the investigation. At the same time, Germany has made it clear that Navalny has been attacked by the nerve agent Novichok.
Russia has denied the allegations
Russia has rejected Alexey Navalny’s poisoning allegations. Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, said: “According to our doctors, no poison was given to Navalny. From day one, false stories are created about it. Peskov said that we do not have nothing to hide.
