Blogger Alexei Navalny announced his imminent return to Russia. He posted the statement to his personal account on the social network Instagram on Wednesday, January 13.

“This morning I did the exercises and caught myself thinking that I was almost healthy. Realizing this, I looked at the flights and bought tickets home. So on Sunday, January 17, I will return to Moscow, ”he said.

At the end of December, the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) announced that Navalny was evading the control assigned to him by the court, since the treatment in Germany was about to come to an end.

It was also reported that a criminal case was opened against the blogger for embezzlement of donations to a number of his organizations in the amount of 356 million rubles. According to the Investigative Committee, part of the funds that were collected from citizens for the needs of a number of non-profit organizations headed by Navalny were spent by him for personal purposes.

The blogger was taken to the German clinic “Charite” on August 22. Navalny felt bad on August 20 when he flew from Tomsk to Moscow. The plane had to be urgently landed in Omsk. Navalny was first taken to the Omsk hospital, after which he was transported to Germany. On September 23, the Russian was discharged from a German hospital.

The alleged detection of signs of intoxication with a substance from the group of cholinesterase inhibitors in Navalny became known already upon his arrival in Germany. Omsk doctors during the examination did not find intoxication with the substance.

The German government, relying on data from a special laboratory of the Bundeswehr, stated that the blogger was allegedly poisoned with a substance from the Novichok group, without providing any evidence. In mid-October, the European Union imposed sanctions on Russian officials over an incident with a blogger.
