I gave an interview to the Riga based Russian online newspaper meduza.io on the Navalny case. I gave the interview just before Germany announced that they identified a nerve agent from the Novichok family as the chemical responsible for Mr Navalny’s poisoning.
Me an interview partner Alexander Ershov went into quite some detail on how such substances act a poisons, how analytical chemistry is able to identify them and how the outlook is for a total recovery.
I have to mention Medusa’s managing editor Kevin Rothrock who announced me on Twitter as “basically the real-life Nicholas Cage character from “The Rock” “. Well one important takeaway message from that movie is that VX nerve agent is not green (as depicted there).
