Navalny says Putin is behind his poisoning

Opposition leader said he intends to return to Russia

Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny told a German magazine that Russian President Vladimir Putin was behind his alleged poisoning, but stressed that he had no fear.

Navalny was flown from Russia to Berlin in August after falling ill on a domestic flight. He underwent treatment at the Charite Clinic and was discharged in September. Germany says he was poisoned by a potentially deadly nerve agent.

“I maintain that Putin is behind this crime and I have no other version of what happened,” Navalny told Spiegel magazine, according to an excerpt from an interview to be published later Thursday..

The West demanded an explanation from the Kremlin, which denies involvement in the incident and said it has not yet seen evidence of a crime..

“You do not feel pain, but you understand that you are dying,” Navalny described the beginning of the action of the poisonous substance.

Navalny told the magazine that he would return to Russia, adding: “My task now is to remain fearless. And I’m not afraid “.

The political activist who helped get Navalny to Germany said on September 24 that the Russian opposition leader would need at least a month to regain his physical shape..
