Russian police launch initial ‘check’ into Navalny case

Moscow:  Russian police announced on Thursday they had launched a preliminary examination into opposition leader Alexei Navalny’s illness, after the Kremlin dismissed German doctors’ findings that he was likely poisoned.


Transport police in Siberia said they have started “a pre-investigation check” into what led to Navalny’s hospitalisation in the city of Omsk to establish “all the circumstances” and decide whether or not to open a criminal probe.
