Putin Critic Alexei Navalny Evacuated From Russia to Germany

from The Wall Street Journal,

Leading Russian dissident spent nearly 48 hours in a Siberian hospital after suddenly falling ill on a flight to Moscow.

German doctors were attempting to determine what caused Alexei Navalny to become suddenly ill and lapse into a coma, hours after the Kremlin critic was evacuated to Berlin. In a statement that apparently contradicted Russian doctors who said he was too sick and unstable to leave, the activist group that organized Mr. Navalny’s evacuation said Saturday that Mr. Navalny’s condition was stable, based on the evaluation of doctors on the medevac plane.
