Russian opposition leader Navalny to go back from hospital to jail despite ‘poisoning’

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was “poisoned” by an unidentified toxic substance, but doctors have sent him back from hospital to jail despite his condition, his lawyer and personal physician says.

“It is indeed poisoning by some unknown chemical substance,” lawyer Olga Mikhailova tells reporters outside the Moscow hospital that treated the top Kremlin critic. His personal doctor Anastasia Vasilyeva says Navalny had been sent back to jail despite his condition.
