German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited Russia’s opposition leader Alexei Navalny last week, during his stay in Berlin, Navalny and the German government confirmed today (Monday). Deputy Chancellor Olaf Schultz called the poisoning a “murderous attack,” which, along with news of Merkel’s visit, could upset Moscow, which rejects the findings of German, French and Swedish experts that Nabalin was poisoned with nerve gas in Russia last month.
“It was a personal visit to the hospital,” Merkel spokesman Stephen Zeibert said at a news conference, refusing to reveal details about what was said at the meeting or how long it lasted. Navalny wrote on Twitter that it was a “private meeting and conversation with the family,” adding that “I am grateful to Chancellor Merkel for visiting me at the hospital.”
Navalny was flown from Russia to Berlin last month after falling ill during a domestic flight. He was treated at Charita Hospital in the city for 32 days, before being released last week.
