MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The special medical aircraft from Germany, which is set to deliver from Russia to Berlin the hospitalized Russian opposition figure Alexey Navalny, has landed in the Omsk Airport, according to Flightradar24 tracking service.

According to Flightradar24, the Bombardier Challenger 604 left Nuremberg at 03.12 a.m. local time (01:12 GMT) and landed on the runway of the Omsk Airport at 12.10 p.m. local time (06:10 GMT).

German newspaper Bild previously reported that the medical jet took off from Germany’s Nuremberg Airport in the early hours of Friday.

According to Bild, Navalny is expected to be transferred to Charite hospital in Berlin. However, doctors from the Omsk hospital, where Navalny currently is, believe his condition does not allow transportation.

Navalny was on a flight from the Siberian city of Tomsk to Moscow on Thursday when he suddenly fell ill. The airplane made an emergency landing in Omsk, where Navalny was hospitalized and put on a ventilator after he went into a coma.

On Thursday, Russian opposition figure and founder of the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) Alexei Navalny was admitted to an intensive care unit in serious condition where he was put on an artificial lung ventilator.

A team of health experts from all fields are trying to establish a diagnosis for the political activist, however, Navalny’s press secretary Kira Yarmysh has already claimed that he could have been poisoned as tea was the only thing he had this morning.
