Russian opposition figure Alexey Navalny confirms Angela Merkel visited him in Berlin hospital, expresses gratitude to Chancellor

The current communication between Moscow and Berlin is an “endless game of tag,” with Germany refusing to use official channels, Zakharova claimed.

On Monday, Navalny confirmed that the chancellor had met with him in Berlin’s Charite hospital. The opposition figure denied that the meeting was “secret,” calling it a “private conversation with (his) family.” The visit was also confirmed by German government spokesperson Steffen Seibert, who clarified that Berlin does not announce Merkel’s private meetings. According to German magazine Der Spiegel, which first broke the news of the encounter, it “should be regarded as a clue for the Russian government that Berlin will not give in and will find out the truth [behind the incident].”

On August 20, Navalny was hospitalized in the Siberian city of Omsk after he became ill on a flight from Tomsk to Moscow. Two days later, after a request from his family and associates, the activist was flown to Berlin for treatment at the city’s Charite clinic. Over a week later, German authorities announced that the anti-corruption activist was poisoned with a substance from the Novichok group of nerve agents. The medical team in Omsk denies that any poison was found in Navalny’s body. On September 23, he was discharged from hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.
