Putin's own medical staff examined him, and his polonium levels were so low, they had to stomp it directly into his arteries.
 
2021-04-17 9:07:14 PM  
Yeah sure, in the same way Trump had nothing to do with our current political climate.

Isn't he on a hunger strike?

Of all the stories out of Russia that have turned out to be lies, we choose to believe this story as gospel?

/If Putin needed a successor to maintain the status quo, who better to do that then his most vocal detractor?
//Keep an eye on future elections. If this guy wins...why did he win?
///Just asking questions, like Glenn Beck.

uhm, is he extremely suicidal?

it's one thing to "risk your life to change the world" but he was poisoned and very nearly died, recovered in germany, and the second he was well enough to travel headed right back to russia.

where he was promptly arrested. and i doubt he was then treated well at all.

and now he's on a hunger strike and death's door, while still in russian jail?

i'm starting to think he doesn't want to be an opposition leader, he just wants to be a literal martyr against putin....

In a nutshell? Yeah, pretty much.
They'll never let him run in any election again.
So the only point is to show his bravado. Showing he isn't scared of Putin or his toadies is heartening for the resistance. If he dies, it will embolden them.
One life for the greater good, it would seem.

Well now that everyone knows where Putin's palace is, might be time for an angry mob to pay it a visit.

Kidneys remove unnecessary potassium (amongst other things). If they are failing, then it isn't filtered and excreted via urine. If it isn't excreted, it returns to the blood. Therefore registering a high potassium level.

Shirley Putin is completely innocent.  It's Vlad that's killing Navalny.
 
2021-04-18 1:26:30 AM  
Well, Navalny is a rich oligarch, too. Putin stole his gigantic sprawling mansion compound. Live by the Garchy, die by the Garchy, as they say.

And you made your account on 2009-06-16, which is famous Russian holiday, and you are selling Russian nesting dolls on ebay and list borscht and vodka as favorite food. It is you who is troll comrade!

aleister_greynight: Bet he regrets not using polonium the first time.


Maybe.
But considering how easily the murder of Litvinenko was attributed to Russia; the GU would be gun shy regarding the use of radioactives. Hence the use of novichok for the Skripals. Then that backfired, and they survived, but an innocent woman died after thinking it was perfume.
The GU then decided that instead of smearing it on a doorknob and tossing the container in the trash. They would poison Navalny's  clothing surreptitiously. However, they didn't factor in a pilot willing to divert for a medical emergency, and a doctor not briefed on the operation.
Putin and company expected Navalny to die in his seat.

Novichok it up to circumstance. Whadda ya gonna do?

If Navalny dies in prison, Putin might decide it is a great time to divert attention by invading Ukraine again.

Navalny will die in jail and it will be 100% Putins fault.

There's a reason why smart authoritarians don't make martyrs out of resistance leaders.

Granted "smart authoritarian" is a bit of an oxymoron.
 
2021-04-18 7:34:22 AM  
This is horrible, but there shouldn't be any more sanctions because Putin said it's not nice and the US is a bunch of big meanies.
 
2021-04-18 8:17:16 AM  
Who is saying he is on a hunger strike? Also, we figured out how to feed hunger striking prisoners a long time ago. If Putin didn't want him to die, he won't die.
 
2021-04-18 8:46:48 AM  
Navalny is brave for coming back to Russia after they tried the murder him. Now, they're starving and torturing him in front of the rest of the world. 😞

It depends on your point of view.  I wouldn't have gone back, and he knew what would happen.  But he felt like he had to do it.  He is their Leader.

Would you fight a losing battle if you felt strongly enough about it?  I would, and I do, but I certainly understand if someone chooses not to.

He is on a hunger strike, but what you said is also true.  I don't think he can walk anymore, from the pain, so he's not doing well.

I've never met a Russian that wasn't a shockingly rude, indignant asshole that wore their cooking like a cheap perfume. The stereotype that we apply to the French belongs to Russians.

Anyone can lock someone in a box and kill him.

The challenge is to destroy an enemy by making him your friend.
