The Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia has sent another request to Germany on the incident with Alexei Navalny. This was reported by the press service of the department, reports TASS…
In its appeal, Moscow called for the fulfillment of previously sent requests.
As explained in the department, the transferred interrogation protocols of Navalny and his wife turned out to be meaningless. The Prosecutor General’s Office of Russia regarded this as a complete failure to comply with Russian requests for legal assistance on formal grounds.
Earlier, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at a large press conference revealed the details of the response of the German authorities to Moscow’s inquiries on the situation around the incident with Navalny. According to him, “it is only said that below is information received from Navalny himself and from his wife Yulia.” At the same time, the minister stressed, there is no talk of any biomaterials and bottles. In addition, Russia has not yet received the test results and the toxicological conclusion of Navalny. “None of this,” he added.
