A day before, the news agency published article about Navalny with assumptions of his doctors, who think unknown chemical substance could trigger such allergy.
On July 28, Navalny was taken to hospital with a diagnosis “severe allergic reaction.”
The doctor said a third person could cause toxic damage to Navalny’s skin. The oppositionist himself believes he was poisoned as he has never had any allergy.
Navalny was detained during the protest action on Tverskaya Street. The protocol was completed earlier.
Reportedly, Navalny was detained for 30 days in May for the protest action called “He is not our Tsar,” which was held in conjunction with the inauguration of Vladimir Putin.
