Russia’s human rights commissioner has announced that imprisoned opposition activist Alexey Navalny is receiving medical care during his hunger strike behind bars, and there are no serious concerns over his treatment at present.
Tatyana Moskalkova told journalists on Wednesday that, the day before, Navalny “was visited by civilian doctors, four doctors who examined his state of health.”
Moskalkova said that the clinicians are giving Navalny, “voluntarily and with his consent, medical drips consisting of nutritional fluids.” The official added that “according to the information I am receiving, he is receiving all the care that he needs according to the doctors’ opinion.” “So far, I have found no serious concerns in this analysis on the part of the authorities,” she concluded.Navalny already seen by four doctors & not at serious risk, Russian human rights chief says as activist’s allies protest jailing
“Of course. I mean, the problem is that you already have talked with the military laboratories, as I know, there is one in France that recognised the Novichok. But the problem is, as I know, that Novichok wasn’t in the list, the banned list of weapons. The problem of Russia is that military laboratory of France has samples of that substance. So, it means that France has also this poison,“answered the fake Merezhko.
“It is true. It is true,” immediately answered Jacques Maire.
Mikhail Gorbachev in a special interview to the Tass news agency on Monday gave a poignant message to the Kremlin by calling for the strengthening of the Eurasian Economic Union and the Collective Security treaty Organization and for mending relations with those former Soviet republics which are “at odds” with Moscow.Biden set to inflict wounds on Eurasia
A new Gallup poll finds that U.S. public opinion on China and Russia has crashed to all time lows. Only 20% of Americans hold favorable views towards China. This is a remarkable decline, considering that only three years ago, the majority of the country saw the Asian giant in a positive light. The public image of Russia is barely any better, with just 22% of the country viewing the world’s largest nation in favorable terms and 77% holding unfavorable views towards the country.After Years of Propaganda, American Views of Russia and China Hit Historic Lows
Within hours, the news outlet Mediazona, founded by members of the Pussy Riot punk collective, published an extraordinary exclusive, duly translated by Latvia-based website Meduza. It claimed Amnesty’s decision wasn’t influenced by Navalny’s past statements and refusal to repudiate them, but in fact resulted from a sinister Kremlin-orchestrated “campaign.”It’s certainly been a highly effective deflection operation, with far bigger outlets – such as British state broadcaster the BBC – uncritically regurgitating the outlandish charge.

The new White House Team has been in place for more than a month and it is perhaps time to consider where it is going with America’s fractured foreign policy. To be sure, when a new administration brings in a bunch of “old hands” who made their bones by attacking Syria and Libya while also assassinating American citizens by drone one might hope that those mistakes might have served as valuable “lessons learned.” Or maybe not, since no one in the Democratic Party ever mentions the Libya fiasco and President Joe Biden has already made it clear that Syria will continue to be targeted with sanctions as well as with American soldiers based on its soil. And no one will be leaving Afghanistan any time soon. The Biden team will only let up when Afghanistan is “secure” and there is regime change in Damascus.Biden’s Poisonous Journey Backward
