Russia’s Alexei Navalny confirms that German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited him in the hospital

MOSCOW (AP) – Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has confirmed reports that German Chancellor Angela Merkel visited him in a Berlin hospital where he was being treated for what German authorities determined was nerve agent poisoning. “There was a meeting, but one shouldn’t call it secret,” Navalny said in a tweet Monday, referring to media reports alleging that Merkel made a secret visit to the Charite hospital where he remained for 32 days. He said it was a private visit and a conversation with the family, adding that “I’m very grateful to chancellor Merkel for visiting me in the hospital.”
