Back to Overview

You are here:

Alexei Navalny has been receiving treatment at CharitéUniversitätsmedizin Berlin since last weekend. His condition is stable.

There has been some improvement in the symptoms caused by the inhibition of cholinesterase activity. Mr. Navalny continues to be treated in an intensive care unit, where he is being kept in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator. While his condition remains serious, there is no immediate danger to his life. However, due to the severity of the patient’s poisoning, it remains too early to gauge potential long-term effects.

The treating physicians remain in close contact with Mr. Navalny's wife. After consultation with the patient's wife, Charité is reassured that the decision to make details of the patient’s condition public would be in accordance with his wishes.
