The hospital treating gravely ill Russian opposition leader Aleksei Navalny since he was medically airlifted to Germany two days earlier said on August 24 that its tests indicate he was “poisoned.”

Navalny “is in an intensive-care unit and is still in an induced coma,” it said, adding that his health “is serious but there is currently no acute danger to his life.”

The staunch anti-corruption campaigner and critic of President Vladimir Putin fell ill on August 20 during a flight from the Siberian city of Tomsk to Moscow.

The plane made an emergency landing in Omsk, where doctors put him into an induced coma.

“The clinical findings indicate intoxication by a substance from the group of active substances called cholinesterase inhibitors,” a statement by the Charite hospital said.

Cholinesterase inhibitors, also known as anti-cholinesterase, are a broad range of chemicals that are found in several drugs but also in some pesticides and nerve agents.

Colleagues and supporters of Navalny have said he might have been poisoned when he drank tea purchased at the Tomsk airport.

A spokesman for Chancellor Angela Merkel, Steffen Seibert, told reporters in Berlin on August 24 that “protection is necessary” for Navalny because poisoning was suspected as “extensive” testing continued.

“We are dealing with a patient who, it is fairly likely, was poisoned,” Seibert told reporters in Berlin.

“The suspicion is … that somebody poisoned Mr. Navalny — that somebody seriously poisoned Mr. Navalny — which, unfortunately, there are some examples of in recent Russian history. So the world takes this suspicion very seriously,” Seibert said on August 24.

“Because there is a certain probability of a poison attack, protection is necessary,” Seibert said.

The Omsk regional Health Ministry, where Navalny was initially treated, said on August 22 that caffeine and alcohol were found in Navalny’s urine, but “no convulsive or synthetic poisons were detected.”… MORE
