‘Poisoned’ Kremlin critic Navalny arrives at Berlin hospital

Navalny’s wife believes the delay was to allow whatever substance is in his system to degrade and to make identifying it more difficult.

Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny has been transferred to a hospital in Berlin to receive emergency treatment for suspected poisoning.

Russian doctors had initially said he was too sick to be moved from a hospital in the Siberian City of Omsk, but they changed their position late on Friday.
