Indeed, the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny had nerve poison in his blood. This emerges from research by the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague.
Navalny became very ill during a flight in Russia in August. He was allowed to go to Germany to be treated there.
Western researchers had already determined that he had been poisoned with a Novichok nerve poison. A team from the OPCW had also taken samples from the politician for their own investigation.
The well-known Kremlin critic holds the Russian authorities responsible for his poisoning. Yet he says he eventually wants to return to his home country.
“That might take another three weeks or two months. But certainly not a year,” he said in an interview with a well-known vlogger on YouTube.
