Alexei Navalny, Russian opposition leader and critic of Vladimir Putin, has been released from the hospital in Berlin where he was treated for poisoning by a Russian military nerve agent Novichok.
Navalny intends to return to Russia when he has recovered further.
From the Washington Post:
According to his team, Navalny intends to return to Russia after he has recovered. Navalny's spokeswoman, Kira Yarmysh, said he plans to stay in Germany for the time being.
A picture posted on his Instagram account Wednesday showed him sitting on a park bench surrounded by woods. He described the first time that he saw a mirror after weeks in intensive care, and thought he looked like a "character from Lord of the Rings."
"I was terribly upset," he said. "I thought that I would never be discharged from the clinic."
Here's the Instagram post.
