On August 20, Navalny fell ill on a flight from Tomsk, Siberia, to Moscow. The plane made an emergency landing in Omsk, Siberia, and Navalny was taken to hospital.

At the time, Kira Yarmish, his press secretary, said he had been poisoned at the airport. German doctors who have conducted tests on Navalny since have concluded that he was poisoned with Novichok, a deadly, Soviet-developed nerve agent.

Откуда взялась злосчастная бутылка? Давайте объясним, откуда взялось то, про что нам непрерывно задают вопросы. Так называемая “бутылка с «Новичком»”, ну, а точнее, обычная пластиковая бутылка из-под воды, на которой потом в немецкой лаборатории обнаружили следы боевого отравляющего вещества. Это бутылка из номера в томской гостинице, где останавливался сам Навальный и вся наша съемочная группа. Перенесемся обратно в 20 августа. В этот день часть нашей команды улетела в Москву, часть осталась в Томске доделывать видео. В полете Алексей потерял сознание и начал задыхаться, самолёт экстренно сел. Почти сразу сотрудники ФБК, которые остались в Томске, узнали о случившемся. В этот момент была сделана единственно возможная вещь. Они вызвали адвоката, поднялись в номер, из которого только что выехал Навальный, и начали фиксировать, описывать и упаковывать все, что там нашли. В том числе, и бутылки из-под гостиничной воды. Как это происходило, вы можете посмотреть на этом видео. Никакой особой надежды что-то такое обнаружить не было. Но поскольку нам было абсолютно ясно, что Навальный не “слегка заболел”, не “перегрелся” и Рафаэлкой здесь не поможешь, было решено забрать все, что может хоть как-то гипотетически пригодиться, и передать это врачам в Германии. То, что дело расследовать в России не будут, тоже было достаточно очевидно. Так и вышло: прошел почти месяц, Россия так и не признала отравление Алексея. Спустя две недели именно на бутылке из томского номера немецкая лаборатория обнаружила следы «Новичка». А потом еще три лаборатории, которые брали анализы у Алексея, подтвердили, что Навальный был отравлен именно им. Теперь мы понимаем: это было сделано до того, как он покинул свой номер, чтобы поехать в аэропорт. Сегодня в 20.00 в передаче «Россия Будущего» на ютюб-канале Навальный LIVE Георгий Албуров @alburov расскажет подробности.

Navalny team says nerve agent found on Russian hotel room water bottle

  Navalny team says nerve agent found on Russian hotel room water bottle Navalny team says nerve agent found on Russian hotel room water bottleMOSCOW (Reuters) - The nerve agent used to poison Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was detected on an empty water bottle from his hotel room in the Siberian city of Tomsk, suggesting he was poisoned there and not at the airport as first thought, his team said on Thursday.

Russian dissident Alexei Navalny recounted the terrifying initial moments after a nerve agent took effect on German chemical weapons experts have determined that he was poisoned with Novichok — findings that were corroborated by labs in France and Sweden. Video length 58 seconds :58.

Navalny : "No way. It's crazy that I was poisoned with a military chemical weapon. If the results from the German army lab and the French and Swedish laboratories didn't exist, I wouldn't believe it myself. We know a lot about Putin and the Kremlin. But to poison a civilian with Novichok so he will die on a

In the video, a number of water bottles can be seen around the hotel room, including in the mini fridge and on his bedside table, which have been highlighted with red rings.

"This is a bottle from a room in a Tomsk hotel where Navalny himself and our entire film crew stayed," the caption said.

The post added that there were "several items" that Navalny could have used in his Tomsk hotel room, including the water.

An investigation into the poisoning by the independent Russian news website Proekt found that after news of Navalny's poisoning reached his team, who had remained at the hotel in Tomsk, they hurried to save as much information as possible from the room, fearing Russian authorities would soon be at their door.

Georgy Alburov, an investigator at Navalny's foundation, said: "In Russia it will definitely not be investigated."

Navalny is the leading opposition leader in Russia. He campaigned to run against Putin in 2018 but was barred from running for president. He has regularly been arrested, detained, and jailed for sedition.

In the wake of his poisoning last month pro-Putin Russian media attempted to push a narrative that Navalny was hospitalized after heavy drinking the night before.

Navalny on Tuesday posted a picture of himself on a hospital bed to his Instagram for the first time since he fell ill.

"Hi, this is Navalny," he wrote."I miss you. I still can hardly do anything, but yesterday I was able to breathe on my own for the whole day. Just myself. I did not use any outside help, not even the simplest valve in my throat."
