The Russian opposition leader Alekséi Navalni explained this Saturday how his Recovery and the difficult times that you are going through to return to learn to talk and walk at La Charité hospital in Berlin, where he is being treated for his poisoning with a neurotoxic agent from the group Novichok.
“I will tell you how my recovery is going. It is already a clear path, although there is much left. The current problems, that the telephone in my hands is useless as a stone or that pouring me a glass is almost a feat, are a trifle,” says the opponent in a message on his account Instagram next to a photograph in which you can see him going down a ladder.
According to Navalni, until very recently he did not recognize people or speak. “Every morning the doctor would come and tell me: Alekséi, I brought a blackboard, let’s invent what word we can write on it. This made me desperate, because, although I understood what the doctor wanted, I didn’t know how to find the word,” he adds. The Russian opponent indicates that he could not even express his despair and remained silent.
“Now I am a man whose legs shake when he goes down a ladder, but who thinks: ‘It’s a ladder! You go up it. Well, we’ll have to find an elevator,'” he adds. Navalni admits that many problems remain to be solved, but that the German doctors converted it from a “technically alive person“into” someone who can once again become a Higher Form of Being in Today’s Society who can quickly flip through Instagram and understand without delay where to put a ‘like’ “.
Last August 20, Navalni suffered a collapse during a flight of Siberia to Moscow, forcing an emergency landing in Omsk, where he received treatment at a local hospital. The Russian doctors who treated him said they had found no traces of poisoning and attributed the collapse to a sugar spike.
Later, at the request of the family and his collaborators, and under the authorization of the German Government, Navalni was transferred to Berlin. In the first examinations carried out, signs of poisoning were found, for which the cooperation of a specialized laboratory of the German Army was requested, which confirmed that he was poisoned with a nerve agent of the Novichok group, a chemical weapon developed in the Soviet Union.
The results of the analyzes carried out in Germany were independently corroborated by laboratories in France and Sweden.
