Navalny was rushed to a local hospital in Omsk on August 20 after collapsing on a Moscow-bound flight from Tomsk. He fell into a coma and was put on a ventilator in an intensive care unit. On August 22, he was airlifted to Berlin and admitted to the Charité hospital.
On September 2, German officials claimed that, having examined Navalny’s test samples, their state toxicologists had come to the conclusion that the activist had been affected by a toxic agent belonging to the Novichok family.
Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that Russia was ready for comprehensive cooperation with Germany. He pointed out that no poisonous substances had been detected in Navalny’s system prior to his transfer to Berlin.
On October 6, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) confirmed that biomarkers of the cholinesterase inhibitor found in Navalny’s blood and urine samples have structural characteristics similar to the toxic chemicals added to the Chemical Weapons Convention’s Annex on Chemicals in November 2019.
