The poisoned Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny has been removed from ventilation and can leave his bed, the Berlin hospital treating him has said.

Mr Navalny collapsed on a flight from Siberia on 20 August, and tests have shown he was poisoned with a Novichok nerve agent.

He was transferred to the Charité hospital in the German capital.

His team alleges he was poisoned on the orders of President Vladimir Putin – the Kremlin denies any involvement.

The Charité hospital gave the update in a tweet on Monday. It said he continued to improve and was “currently undergoing mobilisation and is able to leave his bed for short periods of time”.

The tweet was sent out as results came in from Russian council elections.
