Navalny, who remains in a medically-induced coma, was transported to Berlin’s famous Charite hospital. The entrance to the building was guarded by police when Navalny arrived.
Jaka Bizilj, the head of the Cinema for Peace Foundation, which arranged for Navalny’s flight, told Bild that the activist’s condition was “stable” during the journey and upon landing.
The activist was evacuated to Germany from the Siberian city of Omsk on Saturday morning.
Local doctors treating the activist initially refused to allow his transfer, arguing that his condition was not stable enough. However, after consultations with German specialists, they later approved the flight.
Navalny suddenly felt ill and lost consciousness on Thursday, shortly after boarding a plane following his trip to Siberia. The aircraft made an emergency landing in Omsk, where the activist was hospitalized at a local clinic.
Russian doctors cited “disorder in the carbohydrate balance,” caused by a “rapid drop in blood sugar level,” as the preliminary diagnosis.
Navalny’s team alleged that he was poisoned in a plot orchestrated by authorities. However, no traces of any toxic substance were found during his treatment in Omsk.
