Germany, France & Sweden ‘confirm’ Novichok poisoning in Navalny case

The German government has said that laboratories in France and Sweden have confirmed its own findings that Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was poisoned with a Novichok nerve agent.

Germany asked France and Sweden “for an independent review of the German evidence (of Novichok poisoning) on the basis of new samples from Mr Navalny,” who is receiving treatment in Berlin.

“The results of this review at specialised laboratories in France and Sweden are now available and confirm the German evidence (of Novichok poisoning),” a German spokesperson said.

The 44-year-old Putin critic and anti-corruption campaigner fell ill after boarding a plane in Siberia last month and was hospitalised there before being flown to Berlin for treatment.
