Alexey Navalny wanted to return to Russia. He told the German prosecutor that he planned to return home as soon as he recovered. This is reported by The New York Times, citing security sources.
“He's not going to go into exile in Germany. He wants to return home to Russia and continue his work, ”the newspaper quotes the interlocutor. According to him, Navalny “is fully aware of his condition, what happened, and where he is.”
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.
