Alexei Navalny discharged from hospital

Alexei Navalny was discharged from the Berlin hospital where was treated after being poisoned by Novichok in Siberia last month.

“The patient’s condition had improved sufficiently for him to be discharged from acute inpatient care,” the Charite hospital said in a statement on 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 of his severe poisoning,” it added.
