Navalny posted on Instagram a photo of him sitting in a park after being discharged from the hospital. The 44-year-old opposition leader said he plans to undergo physiotherapy at a rehabilitation center to restore motor functions, including full control of the left hand..
“After 32 days in the hospital, the doctors decided that further recovery requires not inpatient treatment, but the normalization of life. Walk, spend time with family. Immerse yourself in the routine of daily movements, he wrote. – The plans are still simple: a physiotherapist every day. Possibly a rehabilitation center. Stand on one leg. Take back control of your fingers completely. Keep balance “.
Navalny thanked the doctors of the Berlin clinic “Charite” for the help.
Companions of the oppositionist previously stated that he plans to return to Russia over time, but Navalny’s latest post does not say this..
The fact that Navalny was poisoned with a substance from the Novichok family was reported by the German authorities with reference to the results of analyzes in the Bundeswehr laboratory, which were later confirmed in the laboratories of France and Sweden..
The Kremlin said on Wednesday that the entourage of Russian President Vladimir Putin has no access to such substances.
The Charité thinks that Navalny’s condition has improved enough to be discharged from the hospital. “Based on the patient’s current condition, the attending physicians believe that his full recovery is possible. Any long-term consequences of severe poisoning can be judged later, “the clinic said..
Navalny spent 32 days in the hospital, 24 of them in intensive care.
Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the Russian authorities were delighted with reports of Navalny’s recovery and that he, like any Russian citizen, could return to the country at any time..
