"He is not our friend": Western press disowns Navalny

The leader of the Russian non-systemic opposition, Alexei Navalny, who is now undergoing treatment in the Berlin Charite clinic, although he is an antithesis to Putin and his regime, if he comes to power, he will not necessarily be a friend and partner of the West. Writes about this The Spectator (UK).

Despite the fact that Navalny is portrayed as a fighter against corruption and a champion of democratic values, for a number of reasons he is not our friend

- British experts write, further revealing the reasons for their theses.

Thus, Alexei Navalny does not hide his adherence to the ideas of Russian nationalism. In 2006, he called for the Russian March and was at the origin of the People organization, which later merged with the nationalist Great Russia and the movement against illegal immigration (banned in Russia).

The oppositionist is also loyal to the military actions of the Russian Federation. For example, during the conflict between Moscow and Tbilisi in 2008, he did not speak out against Russian aggression and spoke offensively about the Georgians. Navalny also supports pro-Russian forces in Ukraine and Transnistria. For example, he declared that Crimea would never be Ukrainian again - even if Navalny came to power in Moscow. In addition, he does not see the difference between Russians and Ukrainians.

If Alexei Navalny became the head of Russia, the lives of its citizens would certainly improve. But given his ambiguous statements in relation to the inhabitants of the CIS countries and adherence to the ideas of Great Russian chauvinism, the Russian Federation during Navalny's presidency will not necessarily become a friend of the West.

    The tree stump is clear, the salary agent is not a friend. Gentlemen distance themselves from funding, let Merkel pay him.

      The leader of the Russian non-systemic opposition, Alexei Navalny, who is now undergoing medical treatment at the Berlin Charite clinic, although he is an antithesis to Putin and his regime, if he comes to power, he will not necessarily be a friend and partner of the West.

      Something about the British experts in the West "praised" (!), Just "praised" (!) Navalny, which I have not even heard about him and from him!
      And for others, this is news!

        Praise and pretend that "he is not with us." Normal propaganda.

    Navalny is not the leader of the non-systemic opposition. Do not lie. He is a humble grant-eater - an agent of influence. Did not meet the hopes of the owner. The anti-corruption fund profited from fines (grants went to the Russian budget), flew a couple of million in fines personally. The hamsters on Bolotnaya require hemp seeds immediately. And there is nothing to buy them.

    There is no need to discuss this at all. Navalny will never be the president of Russia. If they want, let them keep him and make him the president of Germany. Well, or let them be sent to Ukraine, they like alien idiots, and there is plenty of room to deal with the fight against corruption.

    They "disown" not from Navalny, but from their (possible) participation in his poisoning. A cheap performance, no more.

    Just a trick with sanctions on the "poisoning", the sample "Skripals case" failed. Ours worked ahead of the curve. They handed over Navalny to the Germans and Frau quickly indicated her interest. Bulk separately from SP-2. No wonder the decommissioned Bundeswehr protects. Their experts know much more about poisons and various "natural deaths". Actually, there is no need for such difficulties in the West. The United States openly says that it will put pressure on anyone who supports SP-2 without bothering with argumentation. The article is passed through the "enemy of American interests" law and the military budget. So, there is only one option, they poisoned our own. And it seems to me that it's not even about politics. As if not an ordinary crime. He did not share with anyone or did not give a share.

    He is not our friend. Already. We wrote it off. Therefore, so as not to interfere, and trawled. So even if the poison was changed, otherwise the vector from all sides points to Great Britain.
