Alexei Navalny leaves hospital in Berlin

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was discharged from Berlin’s Charite hospital after 32 days of treatment for severe poisoning, the hospital said in a statement released Wednesday.

“Based on the patient’s progress and current condition, the treating physicians believe that complete recovery is possible. However, it remains too early to gauge the potential long-term effects”, - reads the statement.

It is currently unclear whether Navalny will stay in Germany for further treatment.

Navalny was airlifted to the German capital on August 20 after he fell ill in Siberia. Last week, Germany, France and Sweden said separate laboratory tests all confirmed that Navalny had been poisoned with the Soviet-era nerve agent Novichok.
