His team alleged that Navalny was poisoned on the orders of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who was on ventilator in the intensive care unit (ICU) of a Berlin hospital, has been recovering. The critic of Vladimir Putin who was hospitalised after being ‘poisoned’ has reportedly been taken off the ventilator and is now able to move out of his bed for short durations.

The Charité hospital, where the 44-year-old anti-corruption blogger was admitted, provided an update in a tweet on Monday. It said he continued to improve and was “currently undergoing mobilisation and is able to leave his bed for short periods of time”.

Navalny was brought out of a medically-induced coma a week ago. 

Navalny also took to his official Instagarm account to share his picture with the hospital staffs.

Navalny had collapsed on a flight from Siberia on August 20. In a series of tweets on August 20 (Thursday), Navalny’s Press Secretary Kira Yarmysh reported that Navalny lost conscious after his flight from Tomsk, Siberia to Moscow took off. As Navalny fell ill, the pilot made an emergency landing in Omsk, where he was rushed to the Charité hospital in the German capital.
