Alexei Navalni’s state of health has “improved somewhat” in the last few hours, although, according to the latest medical report, the opponent is still in a coma in the intensive care unit of the Charité hospital in Berlin and is connected to a ventilator.
His condition is “stable” and, according to the doctors, his life is not in danger. “Due to the severity of the patient’s poisoning, however, it is too early to assess the possible long-term effects,” said the document published by the clinic on Friday.
Navalni has been in serious condition since August 20, when he was uncomfortable on board a plane from Siberia to Moscow. The plane landed in Omsk, where it was initially registered, and after two days of uncertainty, the enemy was evacuated to Berlin on August 22nd.
The doctors who treated him initially ruled out poisoning and attributed the health problems to a metabolic disorder caused by a sharp drop in blood sugar. For their part, German experts have assured that he was poisoned with an inhibitor of the cholinesterase enzyme.
