Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny says he will go back to Russia on Sunday
MOSCOW (RUSSIA) – Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny said on Wednesday he would return to Russia on January 17 from Germany where he has been recovering after being poisoned.
Navalny, one of President Vladimir Putin’s leading critics, was airlifted to Germany for treatment in August after collapsing on a plane in what Germany and other Western nations say was an attempt to murder him with a Novichok nerve agent.
Russian authorities deny any involvement in the incident.
Navalny wrote on Instagram that he had probably almost fully recovered his health now and said it was time to return to Russia despite various legal threats hanging over him.
