(ReliableNews.org) – On August 20, Alexey Navalny, one of Vladimir Putin’s fiercest critics experienced health issues on a flight back to Moscow. The pilot made an emergency landing and the Russian opposition leader was rushed to a hospital in Siberia. A few days later, he was transferred to Germany where he remains hospitalized. Recently, it was revealed that he was poisoned and the US is speaking out.
National Security Council spokesman John Ullyot said the US is “deeply troubled” by reports that the chemical nerve agent used to poison Navalny was one Russia has used before. The Trump official went on to say America is working with allies to “hold those in Russia accountable.”
(1 of 3) “The United States is deeply troubled by the results released today. Alexei Navalny’s poisoning is completely reprehensible. Russia has used the chemical nerve agent Novichok in the past.

As of September 2, the Kremlin was denying any knowledge of the opposition leader being poisoned with a nerve agent. Meanwhile, the international community is outraged and demanding an explanation. Of course, if history is anything to go by, we’re unlikely to find out who poisoned Navalny and others.
