German government spokesman Steffen Seybert admitted that Alexei Navalny could have been poisoned.It was clear that security measures should have been in place after his arrival, as it was a patient who was suspected of having been poisoned. In a dialogue between the agencies, it was decided to transfer this task to the federal level. This means that the federal criminal police agency has a legal basis for this,” Seibert said.
The plane, which Navalny was flying from Tomsk to Moscow, landed in Omsk on August 20. The reason was a sharp deterioration in his health. The blogger was hospitalized in an emergency. On Saturday, August 22, Navalny was transferred to a Berlin hospital, he was in a coma.
Russian doctors call a working diagnosis of metabolic disorders, which caused a sharp drop in blood sugar. And the poisoning, which was suggested by the Navalny spokeswoman Kira Yarmish, is only one possible cause.
