Subscribe to our channel! rupt.ly/subscribe Kremlin Spokesperson Dmitri Peskov said statements that Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny's sudden illness was caused by poisoning were “empty noise”, talking in a conference call with journalists on Tuesday in Moscow. The Charite hospital in Berlin treating Navalny said its findings showed “poisoning with a substance from the group of cholinesterase inhibitors”, but Peskov stated that Russian doctors in Omsk had also registered low levels of the substance. “The medical analyses totally coincide – in Russian and German statements of medical specialists. But the conclusions differ. We do not understand, why our German colleagues are in such a hurry to use the word 'poisoning,'” the spokesperson said. He added that the Kremlin supports investigating the case “If the substance is defined, and if the poisoning is confirmed.” Navalny was brought to Berlin on a medical plane on Saturday after falling ill during a flight from Tomsk to Moscow on Thursday morning. The plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Omsk where the Navalny was rushed to the hospital.
