Alexei Navalny posts picture from Berlin hospital, says he can breathe on his own

Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny shared a picture from his hospital bed on Tuesday with the message that he was now able to breathe independently following his suspected poisoning last month.

“Hi, this is Navalny. I miss you all,” he wrote in the caption to his Instagram followers. “I can still hardly do anything, but yesterday I could breathe all day on my own. Actually on my own.”

Navalny, 44, was flown to Berlin for treatment at the Charite hospital two days after falling ill on a domestic flight in Russia on August 20.

A German military lab determined that Navalny was poisoned with Novichok, the same class of Soviet-era agent that Britain said was used on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, England, in 2018.

1. I don't get it.

The lady hugging him: no mask. I think that is his wife.

The gentleman standing next him: mask under nose. I think that is his son.

The lady up front: wearing mask correctly. I think that is his daughter.

Why can't people just wear a mask and wear it correctly ???

Navalny is in an extremely weakened state.

He just started being able to breathe on his own.

The last thing he needs is to catch Covid-19.

I wish him well and he is one tough son of a bitch.

This is his second round of being poisoned.

Get well soon and keep fighting the good fight.

4. Although any exposure is dangerous

I get the feeling his (?) wife (?) may have lowered her mask just long enuf for the picture.

As for the fella exposing his nose, he needs to maskup properly.
