On the reply of the competent authorities of the Federal Republic of Germany to the request for legal assistance submitted earlier by the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation
  Text

The competent authorities of the Federal Republic of Germany have replied to the request of the Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation of 21.01.2021. The reply contains one more refusal to cooperate in clarifying the circumstances that resulted in hospitalization of Mr. A.Navalny.

Both the tone of the letter received from foreign colleagues and its content has made the Russian party feel deeply disappointed.

The German party apparently avoids answers under far-fetched pretexts and evades from awkward questions.

This fact cannot be regarded as anything other than ignoring the obligations by the competent authorities of the Federal Republic of Germany that arise from the European Convention on Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters of 20.04.1959.

The Prosecutor General’s Office of the Russian Federation reiterates the commitment of the Russian Federation to fruitful cooperation and urges the German party to revise such a nonconstructive approach.
