Alexei Navalny was connected to a ventilator, and police were called to the hospital at the request of Navalny’s companions.

«I am sure that this poisoning is intentional,» said Kira Yarmysh. — A year ago he was poisoned in a special detention center. We remember all this. I’m sure the same thing happened now. That is, other symptoms, obviously, another drug, another toxin, but, obviously, this was done with it on purpose. «

«I learned from Kira Yarmysh that Alexei was hospitalized and fell into a coma, she wrote to me immediately,» said Navalny’s doctor Anastasia Vasilieva. «The doctors refused to talk to me.» All I know is that there is a pupillary reaction. Now I am flying to Omsk. I will come and insist that I be allowed to inspect it. And we will decide to transfer him to another hospital. He must be saved. » According to Vasilieva, they are now choosing a hospital to which Navalny will be transported. Since he is in a coma and on the ventilator, the option of transportation abroad to the clinic is not considered.

Navalny’s preliminary diagnosis was «acute poisoning with an unidentified psychodysleptic» (substances that can cause hallucinations). Doctors suggest that Navalny could have been poisoned with sodium oxybutyrate, reports Newsru.
