A video shows Navalny, a anti-corruption campaigner, being stretched from the aircraft to a waiting ambulance in the Siberian city of Omsk.

He was unconscious, according to his press secretary, Kira Yarmysh, who suspects poison was added to his tea.

Navailny was put on a long ventilator, reports said.

He was rushed to hospital with an initial diagnosis of “toxic poisoning”.

Ms Yarmysh posted from his ambulance: “We assume that Alexei was poisoned with something mixed into the tea.

Doctors say the toxin was absorbed faster through the hot liquid. Alexey is now unconscious.

“It was the only thing that he drank in the morning.

“Doctors say the toxin was absorbed faster through the hot liquid.

“Alexey is now unconscious.”

She said: “This morning Navalny was returning to Moscow from Tomsk.

“On the flight he started feeling ill.

“The plane made an emergency landing in Omsk.”


Navalny is seen as Putin’s most charismatic and potentially dangerous foe.

He has faced constant legal attacks and has served a number of jail sentences.

His anti-corruption organisation was dubbed a ‘foreign agent’ by the Russian authorities.

Police have conducted repeated raids on his offices.

Belarus doctor Alexander Lukashenko has blamed Navalny for fermenting the protests in his country, but without providing proof.

In one recent expose, Navalny claimed Putin’s ecology chief Svetlana Radionova was linked to a luxury property deal and that her wealth could not be explained.

Navalny has vowed his aim is to topple Putin and replace him as president.
