Opposition volunteers linked to Navalny attacked with unknown liquid in Siberia


Moscow (CNN)At least three volunteers linked to Russian opposition figure Alexey Navalny's team were taken ill on Tuesday after an attack on their Novosibirsk office with an unknown substance, an opposition activist told CNN.

Two men in tracksuits and wearing masks ran into the office of the opposition "Coalition Novosibirsk 2020" -- which is also the headquarters of Navalny's local team -- Olga Guseva, Navalny's team project manager in the Siberian city told CNN.
"One was holding the door, the other one with [screams of profanities] threw a bottle with a yellow liquid with a strong pungent chemical smell," Guseva told CNN.

1. Screams of profanities, you said.

Don't you find it interesting that every group of humans, all over the world, has this list of "profanities," words that have been labeled evil, which we profess to find offensive, and then we say them on purpose when we are angry. And it seems to be related to a desire to hurt and smash. This is so childish, and yet, we all do it.
Do you think we will ever learn to manage our emotions and our relationships in some better way?

2. Uhmm, gonna bet those profanities are window dressing.

They are trying to kill the opposition. I would not confuse the acts of a sociopath with a gesture or deed done in anger.

4. Yes I hope so

Nalvany is out of the induced coma now and showing signs of recovery but it is not clear what damage was done.
