Berlin. 44-year-old Russian activist Alexei Navalny has been discharged from a German hospital after being admitted for 32 days. He fell ill on a domestic flight in Siberiav on August 20 and was flown to Germany in a medical aircraft, after it was determined that he had severe poisoning. Officials have stated that Novichok, a neurotoxic agent considered to be a chemical weapon that was developed in the former Soviet Union, was the cause for his condition.

He was kept in a medically induced coma for eighteen days during his treatment. After six days of observing his condition, he was moved out of the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in Charite Hospital, Berlin. The physician involved in the treatment confirmed that he had recovered enough for them to allow Navalny’s discharge from the facility. However, he warned that it was difficult to determine the long-term effects of his “severe poisoning right now”.

Navalny’s team said that he is eventually planning to return to Russia, but could provide no immediate comment on the matter. Russia has asked Germany to provide the necessary details of the incident, as Moscow and the West continue to blame each other for the attack on Navalny.
