Russian opposition leader, Alexey Navalny has announced that he plans to return to Russia on Sunday from Germany, where he has been recovering after being allegedly poisoned by the Russian state.

 

Navalny was poisoned with the lethal toxin Novichok in August while in Siberia and nearly died. He accused Putin of being responsible for the murder attempt on his life but the Kremlin has repeatedly denied any involvement.

He is currently in Germany, after receiving treatment at Berlin’s Charite clinic.

Recent reporting from Bellingcat and CNN revealed that Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) had formed an elite team specializing in nerve agents that followed Navalny for years. Phone and travel records suggest that the unit followed Navalny to at least 17 cities since 2017.

A seperate CNN-Bellingcat report featured a phone call in which Navalny duped one of the agents into revealing that he was poisoned with the nerve agent Novichok applied to his underwear.

 

In 2014, Navalny was found guilty of fraud after he and his brother Oleg were accused of embezzling 30 million rubles ($540,000) from a Russian subsidiary of French cosmetics company Yves Rocher. Alexey Navalny was given a suspended sentence and his brother was sentenced to a prison term.
