Nato calls for probe into Russian opposition leader’s sickness : International de
BRUSSELS, Aug 26 — Nato Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg called today for an investigation into the circumstances behind Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny’s sickness, saying medical reports of a toxic substance in his body were credible.
“We have no reason to doubt the finding of the doctors in the hospital, and what we need now is a transparent investigation to find out what happened and to make sure that those responsible are held accountable,” Stoltenberg told reporters in Berlin before a meeting with EU defence ministers.
Navalny, a leading critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, on Sunday was airlifted in a coma for treatment at a clinic in Berlin after collapsing on a plane last week while returning to Moscow from Siberia. — Reuters
