The story of the poisoning of the well-known Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has nothing to do with the continued construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline. These are two completely different problems., which should not be tied together.
This opinion was expressed by Austrian President Alexander van der Bellen during a press conference with his Ukrainian counterpart Vladimir Zelensky, which took place today in Vienna.
Austrian President spoke out against blocking pipeline construction because of the incident with Alexei Navalny:
I personally do not see any connection between Nord Stream 2 and Navalny's poisoning.
Van der Bellen noted, that the construction of the gas pipeline is a commercial project. He also recalled the history of successful cooperation between Moscow and Vienna in the energy sector., after all, Russia has been supplying natural gas to Austria for half a century.
As for Alexei Navalny himself, then he personally reported his health on his Instagram page, by posting your own photo. It is worth noting, what for a person, struck (as stated) the most dangerous chemical warfare agent, he looks good.
The network has already spoken about this photo, noting with subtext, what's with “chemical warfare agents something is going on”, if within a few weeks after poisoning “victim of attack” posing in front of the camera in the circle of family and friends. Some netizens called on Navalny's photo to be considered proof of, that no “newcomer” definitely not used against him.
Earlier, Germany allowed the possibility of stopping the Nord Stream 2 project in connection with the poisoning of Navalny, while noting, that in this case the losses of German business will amount to billions of euros.
