POISONING OF NAVALNIY
It has been claimed that Russian dissident Aleksey Navalny, who boarded a plane on August 20, 2020 to travel to Moscow from Tomsk, Russia, was poisoned during the flight. Navalny, who is against the Kremlin, was transferred to Berlin Charite Hospital by private plane from Omsk, where he was treated for the first time on August 22, 2020. After receiving treatment, Alexei Navalny claimed that Russian President Vladimir Putin had had him poisoned through Russian intelligence services.
Navalny was arrested on January 17 at Moscow airport upon his return from Germany. On February 2, the Moscow City Court converted Navalny’s 3.5-year suspended sentence, which had been handed down in the past following the corruption case, to a normal 2.5-year sentence of prison by calculating the sentence he spent at home. On February 16, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) decided to inform Russia that it had taken interim measures for the immediate release of Navalny. The Kremlin, meanwhile, argued that the ECtHR decision was illegal.
