Putin's Poison Apple
Someone’s fed the Kremlins past midnight again. Their latest stunt? poisoning Putin’s popular opposition Alexei Navalny.
In 2018 Navalny attempted to run for president but was barred due to criminal convictions. These convictions are two charges of embezzlement, both thought to be politically motivated to keep him out the game.
Scared of that notorious threat to Russia’s internal stability – ‘democracy’ – Putin probably decided to have Navalny knocked off. Telecom and travel data prove that three FSB agents followed Navalny and slipped the unsuspecting Russian Novichok, a nerve agent developed by Soviet scientists during the cold war.
As well as being responsible for putting the spire of Salisbury Cathedral on the map, Novichok ironically actually means ‘newcomer’ – but there’s nothing new about good old-fashioned state-sanctioned murder. The nerve agent took hold of Navalny’s body as he flew from Tomsk to Moscow and the plane made an emergency landing. He was then flown to Berlin where they were able to save his life.
Putin much like Dr Evil is an emblem of corruption and comically his plans do not work out, maybe next time he will try a trap door that drops into a pool of sharks with lasers.
Navalny has recently left the hospital in Berlin after his near-death experience and points the finger directly at Putin. As soon as his feet touched Russian soil, he was detained for violating terms of a suspended jail sentence.
Now protests are sweeping the country calling for justice for Navalny. The gatherings are some of the largest Russia has seen in recent years and might just serve to undermine Putin’s skeevy oligarchy for the first time.
Navalny, like Voldermort, cannot die and has risen with a vengeance, upholding his title as ‘the man Putin fears most.’ Putin better start finding those Horcruxes…
