Alexei Navalny announces he can now walk with a 'tremble'

Alexei Navalny announces he can now walk with a 'tremble'Alexei Navalny, Russia’s leading opposition figure, revealed on Saturday that he is now able to walk following his suspected poisoning with Novichok nerve agent. The Putin critic posted a photograph to Instagram of himself walking down the stairs, captioning it that he could now walk with a “tremble”. "Quite recently, I did not recognize people and did not understand how to talk," Navalny wrote.

And before, I would have just stood there and stared at it blankly," the post added.
