Alexei Navalny speaks out for first time since suspected poisoning, reveals intention to return to R

Source: MSN/NY Daily News

Opposition leader Alexei Navalny shared a photograph from his Berlin hospital bed on Tuesday, marking the first time he has spoken publicly since he was allegedly poisoned last month with a Soviet-era nerve agent.

The image, posted on social media, features the 44-year-old Kremlin critic surrounded by his grinning wife and two children. He was initially hospitalized at a Siberian medical facility after he became suddenly ill during a domestic flight in Russia from Tomsk to Moscow.

Navalny’s team immediately claimed he was poisoned due to his stance against President Vladimir Putin — allegations the Russian government has repeatedly denied.

“Hi, this is Navalny. I’m missing you. I still can hardly do anything, but yesterday I could breathe the whole day on my own. Completely on my own,” he wrote in the post.

Like everything, the White House response has been a mess with aides offering the pro forma condemnations of the poisoning while Trump himself has been casting doubt.

Trump says he has seen no proof of Navalny poisoning, awaiting German findings

President Trump on Friday cast doubt on the consensus from Germany that leading Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny was poisoned in an assassination attempt in Siberia, saying he is waiting to review the evidence.

“We haven’t had any proof yet,” Trump said during a briefing at the White House.

“I would be very angry if that’s the case, so we’ll take a look at the numbers and the documents, because we’re going to be sent a lot of documents over the next few days,” he added.

The president’s remarks came hours after NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said there is “proof beyond doubt” that Navalny was poisoned with the Novichok nerve agent. The NATO head called it a violation of international law that required an international response.

4. And he plans to go back to Russia.

"Navalny’s spokeswoman took to Twitter to confirm the anti-corruption campaigner would return to Russia following his treatment in Germany."

“All morning, journalists have been writing to me and asking if it’s true Alexei plans to return to Russia. I understand the reason for the question, but nevertheless, I find it strange someone would think otherwise,” she wrote."
