The anti-corruption activist is currently in Germany, after receiving treatment at Berlin's Charite clinic.

Navalny was poisoned with the toxin Novichok in August and nearly died. The Kremlin has repeatedly denied any involvement.

Russia launched a new fraud accusation and jail threat against Navalny at the end of 2020, increasing pressure on him.
