Doctors Say Navalny Wasn’t Poisoned, Illness Caused By “Metabolic Condition”

After a spokeswoman claimed that Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny had been ‘poisoned’ by Russian security services who likely slipped the poison into Navalny’s tea – the only thing he consumed before taking off on a flight from Siberia to Moscow, he claims – doctors at the Siberian hospital where Navalny was treated have instead blamed his condition on another medical malady: an unnamed metabolic disease.

According to Al Jazeera, the head doctor at the Siberian hospital where Navalny was treated said on Friday he had been diagnosed with a metabolic disease caused by low blood sugar.

Head doctor Alexander Murakhovsky, who runs the hospital in the city of Omsk, also said that police had found traces of industrial chemical substances on the 44-year-old Navalny’s clothes and fingers.

Last night, allies of Navalny blamed the Kremlin for “thwarting” a medical evacuation to Germany, which they claimed placed Navalny’s life in jeopardy.
