Navalny, Awake and Alert, Plans to Return to Russia, German Official Says

BERLIN — Aleksei A. Navalny, the Russian opposition leader who is recovering from being poisoned, has spoken to a German prosecutor about the attempt on his life and says he plans to return to Russia as soon as he has recovered, a senior German security official said on Monday.

Mr. Navalny had been in a medically induced coma at the Charité hospital in Berlin and it was not clear what condition he would be in once he regained consciousness. But the security official, who was briefed on his condition, said Mr. Navalny seemed mentally sharp.

“He’s fully aware of his condition, he’s fully aware of what happened and he’s fully aware of where he is,” said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity to talk candidly about the case.

The news came hours after the German government announced that laboratories in France and Sweden had confirmed that the substance used to poison Mr. Navalny was a form of the nerve agent Novichok, results that match Berlin’s own findings and provide additional confidence that the Russian state was involved.

1. I would hope he would reconsider. He can do a lot more alive than not alive.

2. Don't go back, Aleksei A. Navalny!

Next time they try this, they will most likely succeed.

Do you want to be a martyr?

3. Massive sanctions

As soon as President Biden is sworn in, he should i pose the most massive sanctions pUtin has ever encountered.

Seize every bank account, stop all Russian sales of oil, kick out every Russian diplomat, & refuse to talk to them until pUtin comes begging to us.

WE ARE THE MOST POWERFUL COUNTRY IN THE WORLD! Lets restore our supremacy!
