A Russian operative who was allegedly involved in plotting Alexei Navalny`s assassination has released details about the bungled attack.

Just before a journalistic investigation last Monday which outed him as one of the eight suspects, Konstantin Kudryavtsev was confronted by the Russian opposition activist Navalny who duped him into revealing the details of the operation to kill him.

After Kudryavtsev confirmed his identity, Navalny said he’d been tasked with getting “a brief understanding from the team members: what went wrong, why was there a complete failure in Tomsk with Navalny?”

In an attempt to poison Mr Navalny, the spy agency team contaminated his clothes including his underpants, Russia`s security agency employee Kudryavtsev revealed. The opposition leader asked the agent for more details to prepare a two-page report for “you know who”.

However, the Kremlin has repeatedly rejected any suggestion that Russia tried to kill Navalny.

“The so-called investigation about actions allegedly taken against him [which was] published online by [Alexei] Navalny is a planned provocation aimed at discrediting the FSB of Russia and employees of the federal security service, which would not have been possible without the organizational and technical support of foreign special services,” the statement reads, according to state news agency TASS.
