Russia’s Navalny says he is ‘sure’ Putin ordered agents to trail him before 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..
