The hospital treating Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny says tests indicate that he was poisoned.

Berlin's Charite Hospital noted that the Kremlin critic was suffering from "intoxication by a substance from the group of cholinesterase inhibitors."
It added that Navalny, who was transferred to the German capital from the Siberian city of Omsk on Saturday morning, is in an artificial coma in an intensive care unit. "His state of health is serious, but there is currently no acute danger to his life," the hospital said in a statement Monday.

yes, Euronews reports it as well




German medics treating Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny in Germany say tests show there is evidence that he was poisoned.

In a statement released on Monday, the team of doctors at the Charité hospital said they had found “cholinesterase inhibitors” in his system, a broad range of substances that are found in several drugs, but also pesticides and nerve agents.

The specific substance Navalny was exposed to is not yet known, the hospital said, adding that “the patient is in an intensive care unit and is still in an induced coma. His health is serious but there is currently no acute danger to his life.”

The news comes as leaked reports from Russian police suggest the opposition politician was under intense government surveillance during his trip to Siberia before being hospitalised following a suspected poisoning attack, according to claims published by a Russian newspaper.

In an article by the Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper, police sources detailed the efforts to track the opposition politician's movements during a stopover in Novosibirsk in a bid to show he was not poisoned in the city.

The newspaper also claims that Navalny had rented seven hotel rooms as well as keeping a safe house, which surveillance teams tracked down through a sushi delivery ordered by one of his associates.

He is now in a stable condition after being airlifted to Berlin's Charité hospital by plane early on Saturday for tests and further treatment, a move that was initially refused by doctors in Russia.

Supporters believe the decision to block his transfer was a "political decision" which "threatened his life", an accusation denied by the medical staff who treated him.

In a press conference on Monday, doctors at the hospital in Siberia where Navalny was first admitted before his transfer to Germany said they had not been under "external pressure".

Update on Alexey Navalny:

Novichok nerve agent used in Alexey Navalny poisoning, says German government

https://www.cnn.com/2020/...-novichok-intl/index.html

German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said toxicological tests on samples taken from Navalny had been carried out at a German military laboratory, providing "unequivocal evidence of a chemical nerve agent" from the Novichok group -- Soviet-era chemical weapons.

A hospital spokesperson said Wednesday that Navalny remains in a "serious" condition and that doctors treating him were in close contact with the Kremlin critic's wife.
"Alexey Navalny is still being treated in an intensive care unit and mechanically ventilated. A longer course of the illness is to be expected," the statement read. "Long-term consequences of severe poisoning cannot be ruled out."
The statement added that the critic's condition was improving and that his symptoms from being poisoned were declining.

Now they take it a step further



Russian opposition group backed by Alexei Navalny is 'attacked with a chemical agent', with two people taken to hospital
An assailant has smashed a bottle containing a 'chemical agent' in the Siberian offices of a Russian opposition group backed by poisoned Putin critic Alexei Navalny.

Two people were taken to hospital on Tuesday for tests after the masked assailants entered the offices of the Anti-Corruption Foundation in Novosibirsk, Siberia's biggest city.

The attack comes ahead of city council elections on Sunday in which the opposition group is standing against Putin's ruling party.
