Russia will investigate Navalny case - police

Russian police started investigating the hospitalization of Aleksey Navalny (pictured), Kremlin critic and the country's opposition leader, the Moscow Ministry of Internal Affairs revealed on Thursday.

Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Moscow backs the idea of launching an independent probe into Navalny's alleged poisoning, while Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov stressed that what happened to Navalny shouldn't affect the relationship between Russia and the Western countries, and reiterated that Moscow had nothing to do with Navalny's hospitalization.

Aleksey Navalny was admitted to a hospital in Omsk, Russia, after which his spokesperson claimed he was poisoned. After a plea to Kremlin from his family and political allies, the Russian politician was airlifted to Germany, to receive medical care at a hospital in Berlin.
