Testing by a German military lab determined that Navalny was poisoned with the Soviet-era nerve agent Novichok.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was the victim of an "attempted murder by poisoning" and the aim was to silence him.

Testing by a German military lab determined that Navalny was poisoned with the Soviet-era nerve agent Novichok.

Navalny is one of Russian President Vladimir Putin's fiercest critics.
