According to the doctors in Berlin Hospital. Alexei Navalny, the Russian opposition leader and prominent Kremlin critic, was poisoned. The Doctor said, “The specific substance is not yet known,” but it is thought to be a cholinesterase inhibitor — a group that affects the central nervous system, and includes nerve agents and pesticides. Navalny “is in an intensive care unit and is still in a coma,” the statement added, “but there is currently no acute danger to his life.”
Navalny has been in a medically-induced coma since Thursday, when he fell ill on a flight to Moscow. In a video recorded by a fellow passenger, Navalny could be heard moaning in pain. The flight made an emergency landing in Omsk where Navalny was rushed to a hospital.
Doctors from the Omsk hospital said he had not been poisoned but Navalny’s associates accused the Omsk doctors of trying to cover up the investigation into the cause of his illness.
