Alexei Navalny is out of his medically induced coma, Berlin doctors confirm

Alexei Navalny, the face of the Russian opposition against Putin, is out of a medically induced coma, his doctors in Berlin affirmed at a recent press update on his condition. He had been kept in a coma after being allegedly poisoned with Novichok; a poisoning agent made famous after countless instances of its use in surreptitious operations by the Russian oligarchy to eliminate and stifle any opposition to its iron hold over the country.

Novichok agents were developed by the Soviet Union during the Cold War. They disrupt the brain’s chemical pathways by binding to the enzyme acetylcholinesterase. Without rapid medical intervention, those exposed to the poisons lose control of muscles that control breathing and blood pressure.

Navalny, while traveling to Siberia, fell ill during the flight after consuming a cup of what was seemingly tea and was taken to Berlin’s Charite Hospital following a long diplomatic discourse among Government officials and members of the party “Russia of the future” over his treatment. His condition had deteriorated upon his arrival in Germany, necessitating the need to put him in a medically induced coma to prevent further damage from the effects of the poison, which had almost claimed the life of Sergei Skripal in 2018.

They are classified as banned substances by the Chemical Weapons Convention, to which Russia is a part too. Germany has formally accused Russia of poisoning Navalny and that this incident is just one in Russia’s turbulent history of suppressing dissent. France and the EU have formally called upon Russia to reveal details of its clandestine weapons program, which many suspect to be in blatant violation of the CWC.
