May 22, 2023

Police in Germany has launched an investigation after a Russian journalist and an activist who participated in a Berlin conference reported health problems which suggested they may have been poisoned. Russian investigative news website Agentstvo claims the pair became ill after attending an event on April 29 and 30 organised by exiled Kremlin critic Mikhail Khodorkovsky. One of the victims, identified as an unnamed journalist who had left Russia recently, experienced unspecified symptoms during the event, believing they may have begun earlier. The individual went to the Charite University Hospital in Berlin - where Putin critic Alexei Navalny was treated after he was poisoned three years ago.
