Russian opposition activist Alexei Navalny was discharged from Moscow’s hospital №64 on Monday and sent back to the detention facility where he is to serve the remainder of his 30-day administrative arrest.
“A range of therapeutic and diagnostic procedures, which involves laboratory and instrumental examination, and a complex of therapeutic procedures were conducted to the patient. After that... Еще his health conditions got better. The patient was discharged from our hospital,” the hospital’s therapeutic department head Ekaterina Sebyakina said.
Navalny’s lawyer Olga Mikhailova said that despite the official diagnosis being “contact dermatitis,” the exact cause hasn’t been determined.
“It is a poisoning by an unknown chemical agent. What is it, where was it? Nobody can answer that, it has not been established by now,” she added.
Navalvy’s personal doctor Anastasia Vasilyeva said that “there are a lot of agents” that could have caused the acute allergic reaction, which reportedly resulted in a swollen face, eye problems and rashes on his body.
Navalny was taken to the hospital during the weekend from the prison he was serving a 30-day jail sentence for calling unauthorised protests.
On July 24 the Simonovsky Court in Moscow found him guilty under the article 'Repeated violation of the established procedure for organising or holding a meeting, rally.'
