Charité: Navalny's analyzes speak of the poisoning

Doctors at the Berlin clinic Charite confirmed that Alexey Navalny was poisoned. The traces of an unidentified substance from the group of the cholinesterase inhibitors, drugs acting on the peripheral nervous system, were found in the body of Navalny.

The results of the clinical tests indicate the poisoning of opposition politician Alexey Navalny. What kind of drug the politician was poisoned with is still unknown.

Alexey Navalny has been at the clinic since Saturday. His condition is assessed as serious, but stable. He is still in a coma, the clinic said. There is no threat to the life of Alexey Navalny.

He is currently being given atropine as an antidote. Doctors do not undertake to predict how long the treatment will take and what the prolonged effects of poisoning may be, especially for the nervous system. The doctors did not rule out residual effects. Doctors inform Alexey's wife Yulia Navalnaya in detail about all the measures they are taking to treat her husband.

The results of the examination do not coincide with the information given by the doctors in Omsk. In their opinion, Navalny was not poisoned.

The German government has taken increased security measures to protect the opposition politician, Angela Merkel's spokeswoman Steffen Seibert said earlier today.
