The foreign ministers of the G7 countries issued a joint statement demanding that Russia conduct a thorough investigation of the "horrific poisoning attack" of the opposition's leader Alexey Navalny.

Germany informed other G7 members - Great Britain, Canada, Italy, the United States, France and Japan - that clinical and toxicological findings from German doctors indicate that Navalny was the victim of a chemical attack using a warfare nerve agent from the Novichok's group, reports Reuters.

They asked Moscow to conduct a transparent investigation as soon as possible and punish those responsible for the "horrific poisoning attack".

“We strongly condemn the confirmed poisoning of Alexey Navalny”, - the statement said.

The authors of the letter noted that the oppositionist is still at the Charite clinic in Berlin, and his condition is assessed as grave. They wished the bulk of the family a speedy recovery.

Let us recall that Germany previously refused to disclose data on the poisoning of the Russian oppositionist. Berlin later explained this by reasons of secrecy.
