Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Thanks, but I'm not an expert on Russia. My parents are, or used to be, and some of that has stuck :-)

You don't have to be an expert - just write something that can start a discussion. I'm intrigued as to who poisoned Navalny and why. He was hardly a threat to Putin, and yet few Russians would have access to Novichok. It seems to be the weapon of choice of a certain Russian faction when other less dramatic methods might be more effective. The purpose seems to be to scare off people who might be thinking of going down the opposition route. But is the Russian state as unitary as we are led to believe, and do all roads lead to Putin?
