Doctors claim that Navalny's condition continues to improve steadily. It is also reported that he is now capable of getting out of the hospital bed for a short period of time.
As we reported earlier, German security authorities assume that only Russian special services could have poisoned Navalny on the way to the airport or at the airport itself.
"The toxin used against Navalny is a further enhancement of the previously known compositions of the Novichok nerve agent. This poison is even heavier than previous forms," Federal Intelligence Service (BND) President Bruno Kahl said at a secret meeting.
On the morning of August 20, Alexei Navalny was returning to Moscow from Tomsk. During the flight, the politician became ill, because of which the plane made an emergency landing in Omsk. The Russian oppositionist was hospitalized in serious condition.
On August 21, doctors at the Omsk hospital allowed Navalny to be transported to Germany.
Subsequently, on September 2, a special laboratory of the Bundeswehr conducted a toxicological test of biological samples of Alexei Navalny and concluded that the Russian politician had been poisoned with a nerve agent from the Novichok group.
