The founder of the Anti-Corruption Foundation, Alexei Navalny, survived thanks to the quick reaction of the pilot of the plane on which he flew when he felt bad, and the actions of Omsk doctors, Die Zeit reports.
“The fact that he is still alive, they say in Berlin, is connected only with a series of happy circumstances, such as the quick reaction of the pilot who made an emergency landing, and the doctors in Omsk, who immediately administered the antidote atropine to Navalny,” the message says.
Germany accused Russia of being involved in the poisoning of Navalny, while Omsk doctors did not find traces of poison in his body. Earlier, the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the German prosecutor’s office has not yet responded to the request of the Russian side and has not provided the results of the examination of the founder of the FBK, on the basis of which conclusions were drawn about his alleged poisoning.
On August 20, the plane with Navalny made an emergency landing at the Omsk airport. The founder of FBK was taken to the city emergency hospital No. 1. The politician fell into a coma, the doctors connected him to a ventilator and fought for his life for 44 hours. He was later taken to the Berlin clinic Charite. Currently, Navalny has been brought out of a coma and disconnected from mechanical ventilation.
