Comatose Putin critic Alexei Navalny arrives in Berlin for treatment

Russian dissident Alexei Navalny, who is in a coma after a suspected poisoning, arrived in Berlin on a special flight Saturday for treatment by specialists at Charite hospital. The hospital said extensive tests were being carried out, and doctors would not comment on his illness or treatment until those were completed. His flight to Berlin was organized by Cinema For Peace, a Berlin-based charity.

He's not a dissident. He was a politician running against Putin.

Some background on Navalny: He campaigned to challenge Putin in the 2018 presidential election but was barred from running. His Anti-Corruption Foundation has been exposing graft among top government officials. But he was forced to shut it down after a being sued by a businessman with close links to the Kremlin. So can there be any chance of ruling poisoning out like the Russian doctors are trying?
