German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that as new data on the situation with Alexei Navalny pressure on Russia to clarify what happened will increase.
“We have to wait for further results (Research by Charite Physicians) to show. If it is the case that it is a substance that has been introduced Navalny, more likely use of the substance, the use of the substance in other cases, and where it is produced and stored, then the pressure on Russia to contribute to the clarification of the situation will increase,” Maas said at a press conference following an informal meeting of EU foreign ministers in Berlin.
According to him, “if there is no contribution to clarification, it will be necessary to discuss again how to react to it.”
Navalny was hospitalized on August 20 in Omsk after he became ill on a plane en route from Tomsk to Moscow. According to the results of the examinations, Omsk doctors named the main diagnosis of metabolic disorders, which caused a sharp drop in blood sugar. What caused it is still unclear, but the poisons in the blood and urine of the Navalny, according to Omsk medics, was not found. Two days Navalny in a serious condition transported by plane to the Berlin clinic Charite, whose doctors have previously identified as poisoning substance from the group of inhibitors cholinesterase. The specific poisonous substance, according to the statement, is not yet known.
However, as ria Novosti stated to the head of the department of anesthesiology-resuscitation No.1 NHMC them. Boris Teplogolov, the version of German doctors was worked out by Russian specialists on the first day and found no confirmation. According to him, they talk about clinical data, not about the substance itself, which has not been detected at the moment.
The chief doctor of the Omsk emergency hospital No.1, where the Navalny was treated, Alexander Murakhovsky noted that the diagnosis “poisoning” was the main one when the patient arrived, but laboratory studies did not confirm it. In an open letter, Omsk medics expressed the opinion that they were “trying to denigrate”
