Poisoned Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny says he will return to Russia despite jail threats

Source: ABC News

The Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny has said he will return to Russia this week for what could be a dramatic homecoming following his poisoning with a nerve agent this summer.

Navalny has been in Germany since August where he was treated for the poisoning and had pledged to return home despite the attempt to kill him and recent threats from Russian authorities to jail him.

In a social media post on Wednesday he wrote he has a bought a plane ticket to arrive in Moscow this Sunday.

“The question ‘to return or not’ never stood before me. Sunday, January 17, I will return home on the Pobeda flight. Come meet me,” Navalny wrote on Twitter Wednesday, referring to a flight with a budget Russian airline.

3. Brave guy

He tricked one of the would be killers into admitting the GRU was involved and telling exactly how they put poison in his underwear and then laundered all the evidence. The killer said the plot failed because the plane landed sooner than expected and he was able to get treatment.
Brave guy!!

4. Damn. Putin will assassinate him.

Fuck. Navalny is Russia's only hope for a decent future, and Putin is about to extinguish it.
