Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has fully recovered after doctors brought him out of a medically-induced coma, report The Insider, Bellingcat, and Der Spiegel.

Navalny already managed to recall the events that preceded his poisoning and how he lost consciousness from the pain he experienced while in the plane’s toilet.

Currently, the security of Berlin’s Sharité hospital, where the victim is being treated, has been strengthened. And after it became clear that Alexei remembers all the events before the poisoning, the guards are working according to the highest protocol of danger, i.e. “red”, since Germany fears for the life and health of the opposition leader.

At the same time, visitors got permission to meet with Alexei Navalny; earlier only his wife could visit him.

Doctors say Navalny has almost recovered mentally and predict that he will be able to restore his physical health by at least 90%.

It is known that Navalny fainted on board an aircraft on 20 August, when flying to Moscow from Siberia. The plane had to land in Omsk. The incident is under investigation. According to the main version, someone wanted to poison Navalny and added a toxic substance to his tea. Germany says that there is “proof beyond doubt” that the oppositionist was attacked with the most dangerous Novichok nerve agent of Russian origin.

The poisoners planned for the victim to die immediately while on board his flight. The oppositionist survived only due to the prompt reaction of the pilot and atropine, which was injected into him by doctors.
