Alexei Navalny, one of the leaders of the anti-Kremlin opposition in Russia, was hospitalized in Omsk yesterday due to severe poisoning. An air ambulance was sent from Germany for Navalny to transport him to Nuremberg, but Russian doctors refused to let him go claiming that it would be dangerous for him. 

According to a colleague of Alexei Navalny, the poison was identified. It is dangerous not only to him, but also to everyone around him. As Navalny's spokeswoman Kira Jarmysz said, the name of the poison was not given, citing the secret of the investigation.
