Putin critic Alexei Navalny evacuated to Berlin hospital after suspected poisoning
Alexei Navalny's supporters have alleged that he was poisoned at an airport cafe in Siberia. However, Russian doctors have denied it. Poisoning of State opponents is a standard practice of Russian Intelligence and spy agents to eliminate potential opponents of the Government. While Merkel, Macron, Biden, Hillary have expressed concern over what has happened, Trump has only said, "We’re looking at it."

BERLIN, Aug 23: Russian Opposition leader Alexei Navalny, 44, who had been in coma and critical, was taken to a hospital in Berlin on Saturday for specialised treatment. He is suffering from suspected poisoning. Tests were conducted but doctors did not disclose any details.

Navalny had collapsed in the plane flying from Tomsk in Siberia to Moscow on Thursday and has been in coma since then. The flight was then diverted to Omsk. After much international pressure he was allowed to be evacuated. It is reported that Navalny's wife wrote to President Putin for permission to take him abroad for treatment.

Omsk Ministry of Health and doctors said traces of alcohol and caffeine were found in Navalny’s bloodstream but no poison. However, Navalny’s personal doctors said he never drinks alcohol.

His supporters said he was poisoned through tea he drank at an airport cafe. However, Russian doctors said they did not find toxins in his system. Poisoning of State opponents is a standard practice of Russian Intelligence and spy agents to eliminate potential dissent.

“Once that (tests) is complete, and after speaking with the family, the medical staff will provide further details about the sickness and the next steps. The exam will take some time,” a statement from the Charite Berlin hospital said.

A German organisation had arranged for Navalny's shifting to Berlin from Russia.

Navalny had been jailed several times by Moscow for his protests. Another case of poisoning of dissenters was of journalist Anna Politkovskaya, who exposed Russian atrocities in Chechnya, and was shot later. Another case was of Alexander Litvinenko, a former intelligence agent, who was poisoned with Polonium. Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia nearly too died of poisoning. Opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, was shot dead.

While German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron, US Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have expressed concern over what has happened, US President has said, "We’re looking at it."
