Kadyrov claims to be customer in poisoning of Navalny

It is more logical to consider Ramzan Kadyrov as a customer of the attempt on the life of opposition leader Alexei Navalny, the leader of Chechnya himself suggests.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that in August, opposition leader Alexei Navalny fell into a coma after being poisoned at the Omsk airport. His supporters put forward a version of the attempt on his life. On September 7, Alexei Navalny, who was brought to the "Charite" clinic in Berlin for treatment, was taken out of a medically induced coma, and his condition improved. On October 1, Alexei Navalny announced that the Russian authorities stood behind the attempt on his life.

Today, on his Telegram channel, Ramzan Kadyrov has noted that the Alexei Navalny's statement which casts a shadow on Vladimir Putin was made "without any evidence, with boring and stingy arguments only."

"You should not pursue personal selfish goals and promote your persona. Please, have the courage to admit that if they wanted to kill you in Russia, not a single doctor would have lifted a finger to save your life, and a German plane would have not be allowed to land at the Omsk airport. Where is the logic of your version about the state order for the murder? You are just another toy in the hands of those who want the collapse of Russia," Ramzan Kadyrov wrote.

According to the leader of Chechnya, it would be more logical to call Ramzan Kadyrov himself, not Vladimir Putin, the customer of the assassination attempt on Alexei Navalny. "Why, for greater persuasiveness and credibility, did you not mention me, Kadyrov, as the executor or the customer? It would have looked at least not as absurd as the version you voiced," concluded Ramzan Kadyrov.
