Lukashenko claims Merkel’s remarks on Navalny ‘poisoning’ were fabricated, cites Berlin-Warsaw phone call 'intercepted' by Minsk

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s statement on the alleged poisoning of Alexey Navalny was a “falsification,” Belarus’ embattled president said on Thursday, citing an unverified supposed intercept of German-Polish communications.
“We have intercepted an interesting conversation, which… clearly indicates that this is falsification. There was no poisoning of Navalny,” the president of Belarus told Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, during his visit to Minsk.

Lukashenko claimed the motivation was to prevent Moscow from interfering in his country. “They did it to discourage [Vladimir] Putin from sticking his nose into the affairs of Belarus," he alleged. "You understand how these people act." The Belarusian President also felt it may have been some sort of "dirty trick" to influence regional elections set to be held in Russia, this month.
