Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny says he will return to Russia on Sunday By Reuters

MOSCOW (Reuters) – Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny said on Wednesday he would fly back to Russia on January 17 from Germany, where he has been convalescing after being poisoned. Navalny, one of President Vladimir Putin’s main critics, was flown to Germany for treatment in August after collapsing in a plane in what Germany and other Western nations say was an attempt to assassinate him with a Novichok nerve agent. The Russian authorities deny any involvement in the incident. Navalny wrote on Instagram that he had probably almost fully recovered his health and said it was time to return to Russia despite several legal threats looming over him.
