Russia has alleged that Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny might have been poisoned in Germany or about the health care airplane to Berlin.
Moscow has also declared planned retaliatory sanctions from France and Germany within the alleged poisoning.
Navalny, a dominant Russian resistance figure, fell sick on a trip in Siberia on August 20 and has been airlifted to Berlin for therapy two days afterward.
The international Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has verified a Novichok neural agent was current in Navalny’s blood samples.
Navalny received therapy at the Charite hospital in Berlin for 32 weeks before being discharged in September.
The EU, led by France and Germany, introduced sanctions against six notable figures near Russian President Vladimir Putin in October.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov declared that workers of the German and French leaders are also targeted by steps in the reaction.
“Considering that the (European) sanctions are geared toward officials of the presidential administration, our retaliatory sanctions will reveal them,” Lavrov told an internet news conference on Thursday.
“They were determined, and we’ll soon notify our German and French colleagues.”
Lavrov stated the sanctions were aimed at”senior executives of the French and German leadership devices”.
Moscow has denied some obligation in Navalny’s poisoning and has claimed that any allegations are a scheme to damage Russia.
“We’ve got a reason to presume that anything occurred to [Navalny] regarding the poisonous material in his body might have occurred to him in Germany or on the airplane where he had been loaded and delivered into the Charite clinic,” said Sergei Lavrov said
The foreign ministry gave no additional proof or details for this claim.
Russian police said Navalny had no poison in his system when he had been hospitalized in Siberia.
President Vladimir Putin has said that he intervened allowing Navalny to be summoned to Berlin.
Last week, the Moscow offices of Alexei Navalny’s anti-corruption base were hunted in connection with a claim for outstanding damages.
