Germany explained why it does not disclose the data on the poisoning of Navalny
The Bundeswehr Institute for Pharmacology and Toxicology in Munich cannot transfer research information to a third party for reasons of secrecy, explained a spokesman for the Bundeswehr health service.

We will remind that earlier the special laboratory of the armed forces of Germany stated that it had found traces of the Novichok poison in the body of Alexey Navalny.

- Additional information on research results may allow conclusions to be drawn about the specific skills and knowledge of the Bundeswehr in relation to the substances concerned. In such a sensitive area, this is unacceptable for reasons of security and the interests of the FRG, - Novaya Gazeta reports the response of the German side to the request to transfer information about research in the case of the oppositionist.

Navalny, who is being treated at the Berlin clinic Charite, was brought out of an artificial coma and turned off on the ventilator the day before. He was in a coma since August 20 - from the first day when he became ill on the plane and when he was hospitalized in Omsk. At the same time, it is worth noting that the Russian doctors who treated Navalny in Omsk were criticized for not immediately reporting the patient's diagnosis. They were repeatedly reproached for "silence" about Navalny's condition, despite the fact that they were one of the first to work out the version of the poisoning.

However, Russian doctors did not see symptoms of poisoning in the politician. German experts not only identified the poisoning, but also identified traces of the poison on the bottle that Navalny had with him when he traveled across Russia.
