Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has showed signs he was poisoned and remains in an induced coma, according to the German hospital treating him.
The Charite hospital in Berlin said doctors found the presence of cholinesterase inhibitors in Mr Navalny’s system that suggest he had been poisoned, although the specific substance used remains unknown.
“His health is serious but there is currently no acute danger to his life,” said the hospital, which the 44-year-old was admitted to on Saturday after an intervention by Chancellor Angela Merkel.
Mr Navalny is being treated with the antidote atropine.
“The outcome of the disease remains uncertain and long-term consequences, especially in the area of the nervous system, cannot be ruled out at this point in time,” the hospital added.
He has been in an artificial coma since Thursday after falling ill on a plane returning to Moscow from the Siberian city of Tomsk.
His sudden illness raised suspicions after a string of Kremlin critics fell victim to poisoning in recent years and Germany has demanded an explanation from Russia over what happened.
