Later The Insider published confessionary testimony of one of the poisoners, Konstantin Kudryavtsev, who talked to Alexei Navalny (thinking that he was talking to Patrushev’s assistant) and told many details of the assassination attempt. Among other things, he explained that Navalny’s life was saved by the actions of the pilots and the atropine injected by the ambulance, and also clarified that the poison was applied to the panties, and transport police officers helped to clean up the traces of the FSB. Recall that earlier Vladimir Putin had already de facto validated the results of the investigation by The Insider and Bellingcat, when he did not deny that the FSB officers mentioned in the article were next to Navalny on those very dates.
Navalny lost consciousness on August 20 on board a plane en route from Tomsk to Moscow. The liner made an emergency landing at the Omsk airport. The politician was admitted to the intensive care unit of the Omsk hospital.
On August 22, the oppositionist was taken to the Berlin clinic “Charite”. Laboratories in France, Sweden and Germany have established that he was poisoned with a new type of Novichok-class chemical warfare agent.
