However, Tatiana Stanovaya, founder of political consultancy R Politik, said the Kremlin would view the death of Mr Navalny in suspicious circumstances as a “nightmare scenario” because it would be a “dangerous kind of provocation that would spark protests”. Instead, she wrote on the messaging app Telegram, “Navalny could have been poisoned by anyone from a long list of ill-wishers. He has garnered hundreds of enemies in the past few years, including some hardened individuals.”
