What happened

On the morning of August 20, during a flight from Tomsk to Moscow, the founder of the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK), Alexei Navalny, felt sick on the plane. According to his press secretary Kira Yarmysh, the politician said after takeoff that he was not feeling well, and asked for a napkin, he had perspiration.

“I asked to talk to him, he wants to concentrate on the sound of the voice <...> I went to the toilet, after that I lost consciousness,” Yarmysh told RBC.

One of the passengers posted a video: Navalny can be heard groaning at the tail of the plane.

The plane made an emergency landing in Omsk, where Navalny was hospitalized in the emergency hospital No. 1, in the toxic intensive care unit. There, the politician fell into a coma, Yarmysh said.

In the health department of the Omsk region, RBC said that doctors assess Navalny's condition as serious, he was connected to a ventilator. They noted that experts consider the poisoning as one of the versions of Navalny's hospitalization.

"The poisoning is considered as one of the versions, [but] we cannot say that it was precisely the poisoning," the press service explained.

In the afternoon of August 20, the deputy chief physician of the Omsk emergency hospital, where Navalny is located, Anatoly Kalinichenko, said that the condition of the founder of the FBK remains grave, the doctors are busy saving his life.

“Intensive therapy continues. Doctors are busy saving his life. Thank God, we have a specialized center in the department to treat such patients, ”he said.

Before the flight, Navalny, according to Yarmysh, drank only black tea at the Vienna Coffee House at the Tomsk airport.

“Now the authorities are investigating all the circumstances of the incident. At the moment the coffee shop is closed, ”a representative of this establishment told RBC.

The police, summoned by Yarmysh, and officers of the Investigative Committee arrived at the department of the hospital where Navalny is located. According to the correspondent of the RBC TV channel, FSB officers also arrived at the hospital.

According to "Taiga.info", Navalny spent several days in the regions of Siberia, where "he could collect material for a new investigation about the deputies of United Russia." Yarmysh refused to explain the purpose of the trip to Novosibirsk, calling it "secret", but spoke about the surveillance in Novosibirsk.

Navalny's wife and doctor from Moscow are not allowed into intensive care

In the intensive care unit of the Omsk hospital, where Alexei Navalny is located, his wife Yulia and personal doctor Anastasia Vasilyeva, who flew from Moscow, are not allowed. This was reported by the press secretary of Navalny Kira Yarmysh, writes «Medusa».

According to her, Yulia Navalnaya was first told that the patient did not consent to visits, and then that a passport was not enough to visit: they demanded a marriage certificate from Yulia to prove that she was Alexey's wife.

Anastasia Vasilyeva said that no medical documents were shown to her.

“We are asking for help from officials of the Ministry of Health and officials to obtain documentation, determine the tactics of treatment and the need to transfer him to Moscow or abroad,” Vasilyeva wrote on Twitter.

Versions of what happened

The results of the analyzes of the politician are not yet available, his press secretary said. Yarmysh and other associates of Navalny said that he was poisoned and that the poisoning was related to Alexei's political activities.

“The evasive reaction of doctors only confirms that this is poisoning. Just two hours ago, they were ready to share any information, but now they are clearly dragging out time and not saying what they know, ”Yarmysh wrote.

“Poisoning is considered as one of the versions, we cannot say that it was just poisoning. Specialists of all profiles work to establish a diagnosis, to find out what is wrong with it. All analyzes have been taken, all examinations have been carried out, ”the press service of the health department of the Omsk region told RBC.

The interlocutor of RBC in the Investigative Committee said that the poisoning is considered as one of the possible versions of what happened.

The politician's attending physician, representative of the Alliance of Doctors, Anastasia Vasilyeva, told RBC that she could not give preliminary conclusions about the politician's condition.

“Now he is in a coma on mechanical ventilation. They won't let me talk to a doctor, but Alexei has never had an allergy to anything. Although there is a pupillary reaction, and this is already good. Usually, with butyrate poisoning, there is mydriasis (dilated pupils). I try to find out the details bit by bit through Kira [Yarmysh], but, obviously, one cannot draw on the basis of her conclusions, ”the doctor clarified.

Interfax, citing a source, said that, according to a preliminary diagnosis, Navalny was poisoned with an unidentified psychodisleptic (hallucinogen) - a psychoactive substance that induces altered states of consciousness.

How the politician's associates and security officials reacted

FBK lawyer Vyacheslav Gimadi said on Twitter that he would submit a statement to the Investigative Committee under Art. 277 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (encroachment on the life of a statesman or public figure).

The police are checking the circumstances of the poisoning of Alexei Navalny, a source in the central office of the Ministry of Internal Affairs told RBC.

"In the department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in the Omsk region began to check the circumstances of the poisoning of Navalny," - said the interlocutor of RBC.

If a patient is admitted to a medical facility with signs of poisoning, a pre-investigation check will be carried out, said Alexander Inoyadov, head of the criminal practice of BMS Law Firm.

"At this stage, an examination can be appointed and carried out, but the preliminary results of the study can be obtained earlier, before the expert draws up a conclusion," the lawyer is sure. According to him, proceeding from the circumstances established by the inspection, a procedural decision will be made to initiate a criminal case or to refuse to initiate a criminal case.

“If the poisoning, in particular, was caused by poisons or other substances dangerous to human life, which the victim took not of his own free will, then we can talk about an attempted murder,” the lawyer added.

The technology of law enforcement agencies' response to such cases is spelled out in a joint order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Health and Social Development.

“The territorial bodies of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia should be informed about admission to a medical facility of a person with signs of exposure to toxic, poisonous and psychotropic substances,” says Roman Kandaurov, chairman of the Moscow city bar association “Version of the defense”. - If doctors diagnose poisoning in Alexey Navalny, they will be obliged to send a telephone message to law enforcement agencies. If this information is confirmed, then a criminal case may be initiated on the grounds of a crime provided for with. 3 tbsp. 30, part 1 of Art. 105 of the Criminal Code (attempted murder), which will be investigated by representatives of the Investigative Committee.

If the information about the poisoning of the politician is confirmed, then two versions of the reasons are possible, political consultant Dmitry Fetisov believes. In his opinion, ordering the poisoning of a politician could be “either someone from the elite who was offended at him and thus wishing to take revenge, or external or internal players who wanted a wave of protest in Russia.” According to the expert, in any case, this is the least beneficial for the Kremlin, since it is not interested in increasing the level of protest activity, which will definitely lead to the poisoning of Navalny.

What happened a year ago

In the summer of last year, Navalny was hospitalized in the 64th city hospital from a temporary detention center, where he was serving an administrative arrest for calling for participation in an uncoordinated action. He had "an acute allergic reaction, severe facial swelling and redness of the skin," Yarmysh reported at the time. Navalny then associated his condition with an acute allergic reaction, but did not rule out that this could be an attempt at poisoning. Then the doctors did not find any toxic substances in his body.
