It has just become known that the FSB has detained seven people for attempting to kidnap one of the leaders of the Donbass people's militia.
This is reported By the center for public relations of the FSB.
The attempted kidnapping was organized by the special services of Ukraine.
"FSB of the Russian Federation as a result of the RAID uncovered and stopped the illegal action of the security services of Ukraine abduction in Russia and forcible transfer to Ukraine of a citizen of the Russian Federation, one of the leaders of the people's militia of Donbas who took active part in the fighting against the Mat.
Directly during the attempted abduction, Russian citizens were detained — Makarov T. B., Mishchenko M. S., Kapkaeva O. D., kormich a.m., Pyzin M. Yu., Moroz E. A and Dolgov V. V. The organizer and coordinator of the action were citizens of Ukraine Andrey Baydala and Igor Mishchenko".
TASS with reference to the FSB Central intelligence service reports that the organizers of the kidnapping in Russia of one of the leaders of the Donbass people's militia acted under the leadership of the head of the SBU counterintelligence Department.
In addition, the FSB reports that the Ukrainian special services were preparing several more kidnappings and murders of Russians.
"During investigative actions it is established that the group of Makarov and Pyzin involved Ukrainian special services through Baydala and Mischenko for preparation of several crimes associated with the preparation for the kidnapping and murder of Russian citizens", — stated in the message of center for public relations of the FSB.
"On the instructions of the Ukrainian special services, members of the organized criminal group monitored specific addresses in the regions of Russia, and went to the territory of the DPR to perform a number of tasks."
Here is how this event was commented by war correspondent Dmitry Steshin:
"Did Sbushniki try to kidnap the Shooter in Russia? No one else comes to mind. There are no details yet, we are waiting.
By the way, I was told a year ago by knowledgeable people that such options are possible in Russia and the SBU is engaged in this. Moreover, threats are possible not only against the militia, but also their children and relatives.
On may 31, 2014, the SBU leaked a curious list of wanted "participants in illegal armed formations", including a dozen journalists working at that time in Slavyansk and the Donbas, from Poddubny and Pegov to Steshin and Kotz. The list was compiled on the basis of a search case. A year ago, this case was not closed, but extended for another five years..."
"Look at what's happening. The SBU is conducting another military operation on the territory of Russia, trying to steal a Russian citizen.
And we continue to babysit them.
Once again, Kiev is waging war on our territory, organizing kidnappings of our people. Now it will turn out that some strelkov tried to take out.
And we start criminal cases against officers who give orders to fire on peaceful cities. And then what? Here's how to work. Stole, brought and put on trial, " - comments on what is happening on his page in the social network Alexander Kotz.
Semyon Pegov also commented on this egregious incident:
"And we have long been in favor of Mossad tactics in this sense. You can treat the" state " of Israel as you like — but they once carried out such special operations at the highest level.
It is also time for our special services to move into a more active phase of confrontation with the external enemy.
Moscow is bound to become an alternative Hague. Too many villains have the opportunity to hide and live abroad, having committed crimes against Russia."

|Fierce Kremlin critic and Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny is seriously ill and in a coma after he was poisoned Thursday morning, his spokesperson said. The 44-year-old foe of President Vladimir Putin felt unwell on a flight back to Moscow from Siberia, Kira Yarmysh said on Twitter.|
He is said to be unconscious and was placed on a ventilator in an intensive care unit at a hospital in Omsk after the plane made an emergency landing. "Doctors are really dealing with saving his life right now,” hospital representative Anatoly Kalinichenko said at a briefing with reporters.
Yarmysh told Russian radio station Echo of Moscow there are tests being conducted to determine the nature of the toxin used. She said Navalny only had a black tea at an airport coffee shop before getting on the plane in the morning, and they believe that's how he could have been poisoned.
She said she was sure it was “an intentional poisoning.”
Lawyers representing Navalny's Anti-Corruption Fund (FBK) will submit an application to Russia's Investigation Committee demanding that it open a criminal investigation into his alleged poisoning, FBK lawyer Vyacheslav Gimadi wrote on Twitter.
Gimadi said the application would be filed under Article 277 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation ("Encroachment on the life of a public figure or statesman").
"There is no doubt that Navalny was poisoned for his political position and activities," Gimadi said.
Navalny previously suggested he might have been poisoned in July last year, while he was being held in police custody and suffered a mysterious allergic reaction.
He said that despite never suffering from allergies before, he woke up in a detention facility with a dangerous swelling of his face and eyelids. After receiving medical assistance, he was sent back to detention.
Doctors did not find any signs of poisoning after doing analysis on the opposition leader, TASS reported last year.
This story has been updated to correct the spelling of Navalny's spokesperson.
CNN's Zahra Ullah and Anna Chernova reported from Moscow. Mary Ilyushina and Darya Tarasova contributed to this report.
"I am trying to understand, and there are things that confound me. If Putin gave the order to poison this political opponent, why did Russian doctors save his life and transport him to Germany to be treated by the Germans, risking that the crime would be exposed? That's weird. [...] 'This story happened at a time when the Americans were pressuring the Germans to abandon Nord Stream 2. [...] Unbelievable chance! Some people fantasize about the KGB, which has become the FSB, I fantasize about the CIA, which remained the CIA.
"As for Belarus, I clearly see the CIA behind what is happening, because this is what they have been doing for ten years. Whenever there is an 'orange revolution', it is as if by accident that the Americans, Soros NGOs and American special services are behind it...".
I stumbled upon the following today. Eric Zemmour, a well known essayist and political journalist, speculated about the role of American secret agencies in escalation surrounding "poisoning" of Navalny and the situation in Belarus.
Zemmour est très cultivé et ses interventions toujours assez juste...
Cette émission je la suis tous les jours, on y apprend beaucoup de choses...
Je suis d'accord ave Lui et partage ses doutes...
Zemmour is very cultured and his interventions are always quite right .
I follow this show every day, we learn a lot of things...
I agree with him and share his doubts...
It seems that this "poisoning" of Navalny conveniently happened at the right moment to help impose economic restrictions aganst the Russian vaccine producers.
The Navalny poison plot spread to Paris on Monday, compelling President Emmanuel Macron to telephone President Vladimir Putin to explain what a French chemical warfare laboratory has just done with evidence sent from Berlin by German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.
Macron told Putin he agreed “German specialists must send to Russia the biomaterials and an official statement on the test results of the samples collected from Alexei Navalny, and must start working together with Russian doctors.” Macron also agreed “to contribute towards determining the parameters of possible interaction with European partners.” This wording of the Kremlin communiqué meant that Macron and Putin decided to discuss with German Chancellor Angela Merkel how the Chancellor can extricate herself from the Novichok fabrications they now believe were initiated by Navalny’s staff and a British agent.
The poison plot has also spread to the headquarters in The Hague of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). After days of concealing that Foreign Minister Maas had requested a technical team from OPCW to take samples in Berlin, Kai Chen, head of the OPCW’s external relations department, refused late on Monday to confirm what role the OPCW is playing in the poison plot; what evidence the OPCW has collected in Berlin; and what provisions of the OPCW charter have been invoked to legalise the OPCW’s involvement in the Navalny affair.
In London on Monday evening, a leading British organophosphate chemist and toxicologist said it was too late for the OPCW to have identified a nerve agent in Navalny’s blood or urine. “A functioning liver should hydrolyse the parent compound and then [OPCW testing would] identify the metabolites in the urine secretion. There are no cases of finding the parent compound, so maybe it is not there to be found.”
On Monday morning in Berlin, reading from a script drafted at the German Foreign Ministry, Steffen Seibert , the government spokesman, announced:
“The Federal Government has therefore included the OPCW in the analysis of evidence in the Navalny case. This involvement of the OPCW is based on Art. VIII 38 (e) of the CWC [Chemical Weapons Convention], which gives all contracting states the opportunity to receive technical support from the OPCW. On this basis, the OPCW took samples from Mr. Navalny and took the necessary steps to have them examined by the OPCW reference laboratories.”
Between August 20, when Navalny was allegedly poisoned in flight between Tomsk and Moscow, and September 10, when OPCW took samples of his blood and urine in Berlin, the natural hydrolysis of his body had eliminated the identifying traces of the alleged poison chemical. The evidence of the Omsk Hospital testing, conducted on August 20-21, revealed no trace of a Novichok-type chemical. Testing at the Charité hospital in Berlin did not begin for at least 48 hours after Navalny’s medical symptoms appeared. The hospital’s press release – dated August 24 but not signed by a treating doctor or toxicologist – claimed “clinical findings indicate poisoning with a substance from the group of cholinesterase inhibitors. The specific substance involved remains unknown”. For analysis, read this.
By the time the OPCW technicians arrived at Navalny’s bedside to take their samples, three weeks had elapsed, and no trace of the “substance” is likely to have been found. For that reason, the German Government spokesman announced yesterday, “regardless of the ongoing investigations by the OPCW”, the evidence remained “of a nerve agent from the Novichok group as the cause of Mr. Navalny’s poisoning.” Seibert claimed this has been corroborated by the German military laboratory in Munich, and also by unnamed “special laboratories” in France and Sweden.
This evidence – the only evidence available to the Munich laboratory, and then the French and Swedish labs which had not been hydrolysed — was the bottle which had been brought to Berlin with Navalny, carried either by his wife Yulia Navalnaya or by the witness who was with him in Tomsk and is the only one of the six staff from Tomsk to have accompanied him on the aircraft to Berlin. That is Maria Pevchikh.
Pevchikh appears to have left Germany and is now in the UK. Every other witness, including five of Navalny’s staff who had been with him in Tomsk, have been interviewed by police in Russia, and they are talking freely to the Russian and western press. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said late Monday on state television: “we questioned those five people who accompanied him to the plane, and took part in the events of the days before Navalny boarded the plane. We posed questions to those who waited for the departure from Tomsk to Moscow and went to a bar with him. We found out what they ordered and what he drank. As you know, the sixth lady that accompanied him just fled. They say it was she who gave the bottle to the German laboratory. All this was done. Even if all this were called a ‘criminal case’, we cannot do anything else.”
The “sixth lady” is Pevchikh. Her record in the UK reveals her working association with anti-Russian regime-change organisations of Yevgeny Chichvarkin, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, and Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation; Navalny’s staff claim Pevchikh has been employed as head of investigations for their group...
