According to the doctors of the Omsk hospital where he had been since Thursday, his condition stabilized. By the request of his relatives it was decided to transfer him from the Omsk hospital to a German clinic. On Friday, a plane was sent for Navlany from Nuremberg to Omsk. However, the doctors of the Omsk hospital do not think that Navalny needs a tranportation, since he could continue treatment in the Omsk hospital. According to the head physician of the Omsk hospital, the German doctors agreed that there was no urgent need to transport the patient, especially since air travel could pose a risk of deteriorating Navalny's vital signs. However, Navalny's wife insisted on his transfer to Germany.
On August 20, Navalny’s spokeswoman Kira Yarmysh disclosed that Navalny’s plane, en route from Tomsk to Moscow, conducted an emergency landing in Omsk, because Navalny suddenly felt bad. He was hospitalized, he is currently in coma. According to earlier report, he was put on a ventilator.
