Laboratories in France and Sweden confirmed

Two independent laboratories in France and Sweden reanalyzed Alexei Navalny's samples and confirmed the presence of a Novichok group toxicant there. This was announced in the German Cabinet of Ministers, reports Reuters.

“We again call on Russia to provide an explanation for these events. We are in close contact with our European partners to decide on the next steps, ”said German government spokesman Steffen Seibert.

Navalny became ill on August 20 during a flight from Tomsk to Moscow. In the first two days, doctors from the Omsk hospital helped him. They also introduced him to an artificial coma. On August 22, the patient was sent to a clinic in Berlin.

On September 2, the German government announced that military toxicologists had found traces of a substance from the Novichok group in Navalny's body and called on the Russian government to respond to this information. Russian doctors say that no poisons were found in the patient's analyzes. On September 10, it became known that Navalny had completely recovered.
