The Navalny Affair

Conspiracy at the service of foreign policy

16,00 €
Was Navalny deliberately poisoned? Do the elements we have justify sanctions against Russia? Is the recording with the KGB agent staged? Is Navalny really the "main opponent of Vladimir Putin"? Does his film on "Putin's Palace" reflect reality? This book is the first investigation into the Navalny affair. It is based on official American, British, Russian, French and German documents. Written by a former Swiss secret service agent who fought the Soviet Union for ten years, this story highlights a new way of practicing foreign policy: passionate, disorderly, without hindsight or constructive purpose. The immediate application of sanctions while the facts remain unclear removes any space for diplomacy. The Western unison around this case and the censorship against dissenting voices reveal a disturbing evolution of society and its growing vulnerability to manipulation. We create realities from our prejudices: this is the definition of conspiracy, which has thus become the main weapon of Western countries. We do what we blame autocrats for.
