Specialty laboratories said on Monday that their investigations confirmed Germany’s earlier findings of the neurotoxin novice shock.
According to Germany, a Russian opposition politician Aleksei Navalnyi attempted to assassinate a neurotoxin with a novice shock in late August in Siberia.
The Chancellor told the results of the research of the French and Swedish special laboratories Angela Merkelin government spokesman Steffen Seibert.
The German government had asked France and Sweden to examine the samples collected by Germany from Navalny.
“The results of the laboratories are now ready and they confirm Germany’s findings on the use of novitch poison,” Seibert said.
According to Seibert, the samples have also been sent for examination to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in the Netherlands.
On Monday, Germany again demanded that Russia explain the events that led to the Navalny poisoning. The Kremlin has denied any involvement in the case.
Navalnyi is still being treated at Charité Hospital in Berlin. He was raised last week from an artificial coma.
