The Kremlin scrutinized the findings of German specialists who said Alexei Navalny, the Russian opposition leader who became sick on a flight a week ago, was poisoned. The Charité hospital in Berlin said Monday that its tests on Navalny showed he was poisoned with cholinesterase inhibitors, which influence the nervous system.
Navalny entered a state of unconsciousness last Thursday and is accepting treatment in Berlin. Kremlin representative Dmitry Peskov excused doubts that the Russian government was engaged with Navalny’s harming.
Navalny, 44, was in critical yet not dangerous condition on Monday. The clinic said the impact of the toxin was affirmed by autonomous labs. German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday required an examination concerning the ailment. The Russian government said there is no need.
