Navalny is still in an intensive care unit in an artificial coma and on mechanical ventilation. “His health status remains serious with no immediate danger to his life,” the doctors said. “As before, the long-term consequences of the patient’s severe poisoning are unforeseeable.”
The clinic said the treating doctors are in close contact with Nawalny’s wife. “In agreement with his wife, the Charite believes that public communication about health status is in his best interest.” Navalny collapsed on a domestic flight in Russia a week ago and was flown to Germany on Saturday. The German doctors found poisoning. Russia has been blamed for several poison attacks on Kremlin critics.
