Russia won’t start a criminal investigation into the unexpected illness of Vladimir Putin’s critic and resistance leader Alexei Navalny.
Preliminary research established that”no willful criminal acts” were committed against him, the Prosecutor General’s office said on Wednesday.
Western leaders – such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s formerly put a strain on Russia to research the episode, after Navalny dropped into a coma last week because of suspected poisoning.
The 44-year older activist is presently being treated in the Berliner Charité hospital, at the German capital, after being flown from Siberia through air ambulance.
The Russian physicians who had visited Navalny on August 20 from the Siberian city of Omsk denied finding any trace of poison in his own body.
An additional analysis conducted in Berlin’s Charité hospital seen”cholinesterase inhibitors” within his entire body, but the doctors have not yet managed to identify that substance it is.
But on Friday the Berlin hospital in which Navalny has been treated said there was”some progress” in symptoms brought on by ingestion of a chemical from the bunch of cholinesterase inhibitors, which led to the supposed poisoning.
For his role, the spokesperson for Navalny, Kira Iarmyche, affirmed in a tweet there was”now no severe danger to his entire life”.
Launched in certain medications, pesticides, and chemical nerve agents, cholinesterase inhibitors act by blocking the breakdown of an essential compound in the human body – acetylcholine – that transmits signals between nerve cells.
Navalny’s allies insist that he had been intentionally poisoned and accuse the Kremlin of it, allegations that the Russian officials named “vacant sound.”
His collaborators filed a petition to Russia’s Investigative Committee demanding government to establish a criminal investigation on behalf of an attempt on the life span of a public perspective, but officials seemed so far unwilling to begin a genuine investigation.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday that he saw no grounds for a criminal case before the origin of the activist’s illness was completely established.
On Thursday he stated that the probe to Navalny’s disease was started”at the initial days” later he fell sick but added that the process had been regular police work” consistently performed in cases such as this.”
