Subscribe to our channel! rupt.ly/subscribe German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said that Moscow needs to clarify Navalny situation to avoid imminent accusation whilst speaking to the media before the EU foreign ministers 'Gymnich meeting' in Berlin on Thursday. "It is quite difficult to reach a conclusion from here on if and by who were these poisoning initiated. I think Russia has its own interest in clearing out this situation. That is why we had waited on Russia since they are still engaging in the mediation on site. If that isn't the case, it will not be possible for Moscow to get rid of the ongoing accusations. And therefore we expect, like before, that Moscow contributes to the clarification of the matter," said Maas outside the Berlin Parliament adding that more " conjecture and speculation," will continue to damage the Russian-EU relationship. Charite Hospital released a statement on Monday stating that Navalny is in an intensive care unit and "still in an artificial coma. His health is serious, but there is currently no acute danger to his life." After extensive examining upon arrival, the doctors suspect "intoxication by a substance from the group of active substances called cholinesterase inhibitors." The specific substance is still under investigation. The success of the antidote and long-term effects remain to be seen. Navalny arrived in 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 a hospital. The hospital in Omsk where Navalny was initially treated had had not themselves detected any traces of toxins.
