The Kremlin has dismissed the accusations of any state position within the alleged poisoning, with Putin’s spokesman saying Navalny has a persecution complicated and considers himself a messiah determine.“The patient has a pronounced persecution mania, and we can also clearly establish certain manifestations of megalomania,” Dmitry Peskov stated, final month. “He is even said to compare himself to Jesus.”

The protest chief is a defendant in two separate prison instances, and will face a few years behind bars if discovered responsible. Once he units foot on Russian soil, it’s potential he can be instantly arrested.In Navalny’s opinion, the instances have been made up as a approach of protecting him overseas. “I never even thought about whether I should return or not, because I didn’t leave,” he declared. “I wound up in Germany in an intensive-care coffin for one reason: they tried to kill me.”According to Navalny, he was poisoned with the nerve agent Novichok by the Federal Security Service (FSB) on the Kremlin’s orders. Last month, a joint investigation by Russian-language outlet the Insider, along with CNN, Germany’s Der Spiegel, and the US- and UK-state-funded Bellingcat, claimed the FSB had been tailing him for several years, which eventually led to them trying to kill him.
