Last Thursday, the Russian Opposition leader Alexei Navalny fell into a coma after a suspected poisoning.

Putin’s biggest critic and anti-corruption campaigner suddenly fell ill during a flight on his way to Moscow. The plane had to make an emergency landing in Omsk where doctors were fighting to save his life and he fell into a coma.

His team suspects that the 44 year old was poisoned by a tea he took at the airport’s cafe. However, doctors in Omsk claim that they didn’t find any poison in his body.

A few hours ago, Alexei was transferred to Berlin, Germany by an air ambulance for treatment. His wife said that she wanted him to be “in an independent hospital, whose doctors we trust”.

She blames Putin for an “intentional poisoning”

His supporters expressed relief that he was going to be taken care of outside Russia.
