Russia opposition leader poisoned in underpants, FSB agent says 1


A Russian agent sent to tail opposition leader Alexey Navalny has revealed how he was poisoned in August — with the lethal nerve agent Novichok planted in his underpants.
The stunning disclosure from an agent who belonged to an elite toxins team in Russia's FSB security service came in a lengthy phone call following the unmasking of the unit by CNN and the online investigative outfit Bellingcat last week.
In what he was told was a debriefing, Konstantin Kudryavtsev also talked about others involved in the poisoning in the Siberian city of Tomsk, and how he was sent to clean things up.
But the agent was not speaking to an official in Russia's National Security Council as he thought. He was talking to Navalny himself, who almost died after being poisoned in August.
Navalny has long been a thorn in the side of President Vladimir Putin, exposing corruption in high places and campaigning against the ruling United Russia party.

      @Alex Oelkers China let flights out of Wuhan to Europe pal🤣 you should move to China and join their Communist party

    • @LambChopper678 don’t think I ever said that China holds no blame when it comes to the pandemic? Of course its also true that Trumps handling of the pandemic has been abysmal and that his actions and lack of action has led to the death of thousands.

      @Alex Oelkers Those Numbers are exaggerated Nurses and Doctors have been forced to count non Covid deaths like Car Accidents and Suicides if they test Positive after they die

    • @LambChopper678 Not sure where you heard that because much of the time they don’t test the dead for corona virus. Couldn’t test even every one who was suspected of dying from the virus even if they wanted to as most corners didn’t have enough tests until recently. In fact according to the CDC the number dead from corona virus is believed to be much higher as many die with out ever going to the hospital. We won’t have a better idea on how many have died from the virus until we can come pare the number of dead to the average yearly death rate but its believed to be a few times higher than the official numbers.

    • Ya but your not excepted by CV Vaccines !!!! CHINA controls that Jan 20, 2021!!!! Lol lol

  5. That’s a low blow PUTIN!

  6. This guy absolutely TERRIFIES vladimir

    • @Abu Hurairah I have studied different languages from around the world and let me just let you know that, your speaking/typing style suggests that you are NOT from the Middle East. Your use of certain words suggests Eastern European territory. But nice try.
      “Russian Boot.” 😂

      Yes he does because the Russian people want to vote for him. He wants to bring back real democracy. They didn’t mention that this was the second time Putin has tried to poison him. The people came out in the streets in protest. Many are now, of course, in prison!!!

      @VETERAN You think?…Bellingcat caught the Skripal suspects, just as badly, and it was the same stock excuse!! lol

      I mean, did you see their “alibi” interview on RT? lol One of those guys IS A POLITICIAN NOW….as in…a promotion lmfao Putin will probably give this moron a cabinet position, or an oil company or something hahaha Russia is almost another another planet.

    • @Brandon Higdon yeah it is. On top of all of that, putin is putting bounties on American soldiers heads, messing with America’s election system in 2016 especially, now the hacking! He keeps trying us, testing Trump and the US. And Trump does nothing! It is unbelievable.

      The only way Russia will be free from Putin is if the US poisons him.

  7. Lesson: leave no underwear unattended around Putin.

  8. I wonder if Kudryavtsev is going to have a ’heart attack’ in the coming days…

  9. He’s got some serious balls..and they tried to poison them

    And we hear crickets 🏏 🦗 from trump about this

  12. This an amazing turn in the story holy cow.

  13. Comrade trump would be well advised to check his diapers from now on.

  14. Georgia VOTE BLUE early and Jan 5 !

  15. This puts a new spin on “silent but deadly”

  16. This is how Donny would do it if we allowed him—poison all his opposition

    • @Doug H As I said, antifa is not an organization, at most that’s just a guy who identified himself as “antifa” who was involved in a deadly shooting. What’s your point?

      Also where’s the part about BLM killing anyone? That’s a pretty serious allegation you made, I’m sure you have some serious evidence to back it up right? Maybe a clip of a BLM leader ordering his followers to kill cops? Some BLM member shooting someone at a protest? Running proud boys over with his car? Oh wait, it’s actually the other way around…

    • @Maximilian Sosnov oh I totally agree. Putin is much smarter and nastier than Donald.

    • @Kimberly Galanti
      I said before the 2016 election that Putin was putting Donny in place because he knew he could eat him for breakfast. So I completely agree…

      For one thing Putin is the richest person in the world, starting from essentially nothing, whereas Donald took his father’s nearly 1B real estate empire and ran it into a net deficit in the 1990s

    • @Imaginary Person says the troll who joined you tube yesterday.

    • @Imaginary Person so have you

  17. It gives a whole new spin to the Adventures of Captain Underpants.

  18. They had calculated the poison incorrectly, his balls were much larger than they thought.

    the talkative agent has probably awakened only to find himself dead….

  20. Trump be like: Putin has every right to poison whoever’s underwear he wants!
