Russian dissident politician Alexei Navalny was undergoing treatment in a Berlin hospital on Saturday, August 22, after he was airlifted from Omsk, Russia, according to German media.
Navalny, who remained in a coma following what his supporters said was a deliberate poisoning, was brought to Berlin’s Charite hospital by the German military after his arrival at Tegel airport.
The hospital was carrying out “extensive” diagnostic tests on Navalny and would not make an official comment before Monday, according to Deutsche Presse-Agentur.
