Navalny spent 44 hours in the hospital in Omsk, where the medical equipment used is not the best in the country. He arrived at the hospital at an unusual time for Russia (4 am), and only half an hour after the emergency signal sent by the plane after its request to land. There was no delay in the process of his rescue, which would have been a “perfect excuse” to justify his death.
As soon as Navalny arrived at the hospital, he was immediately given an injection of atropine, which stabilised his condition to the extent that the German medical team continued to use the same drug, recognising its effectiveness. This treatment, applied at the right timing, saved the patient’s life. It was prescribed by the chief physician at the emergency department in Omsk after an online consultation with top healthcare professionals in Moscow. Once again, we see unusual efficiency and effectiveness in treating a patient they wanted to kill.
