Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has been removed from a medically-induced coma and is responding to speech, but the long term effects of his suspected poisoning are unclear.
That's according to the Berlin hospital where he is being cared for on Monday (September 7).
It said Navalny is also being weaned off a mechanical ventilator.
Navalny, an opponent of Russian President Vladimir Putin, fell ill on a domestic flight in Russia last month and was later airlifted to a hospital in Germany.
German authorities say Navalny was poisoned with Novichok, the same Russian-designed nerve agent that the British government says was used to poison Sergei Skripal - the former Russian double agent and his daughter -- in the UK two years ago.
Moscow, however, says it has seen no evidence that Navalny was poisoned and has always denied any involvement in the Skripal case.
Russia's Sputnik V COVID-19 vaccine will cost less than $20 per person on international markets and Moscow aims to produce more than a billion doses at home and abroad next year, its backers and developers said on Tuesday. Emer McCarthy reports.
