“Given the patient’s progress and his current condition, the attending physicians believe that it is possible that he will recover completely. However, it is too early to assess the possible long-term consequences of his serious poisoning, “the hospital wrote in a statement.
It is not known where Navalnyj is now. The hospital only stated that information about his release and health status was published in agreement with him and his wife.
Forty-four-year-old Navalny was hospitalized on August 20 after feeling ill during a flight from Tomsk, Siberia to Moscow. The plane had to make an emergency landing in Omsk, and Navalny was taken unconscious to a local hospital.
At the urging of his family, he was later transferred to Berlin. The Germans offered to take care of the leader of the Russian opposition at the Charité Hospital in Berlin, and took him into care, even though Russia did not want to.
Navalny is one of the most prominent figures in the Russian opposition and has been imprisoned several times in the past. The European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg in 2018 concluded that the repeated detention of Navalny by the Russian authorities between 2012 and 2014 was politically motivated.
