On August 29, 2020, Alexei Navalny, a critic of Putin, was poisoned with Novichok, a nerve agent. He was flown to Berlin to be treated and  laboratories confirmed  he was poisoned. Navalny was certain  Putin ordered the poisoning. Journalist Christo Grozev and Maria Pevchikh, head of Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation, concocted a tricky plan that produced a recorded confession from one of Putin’s participants. Although the confession was on tape, Putin denied it. Determined to continue his fight against Putin, and against the advice of his wife Yulia, and his close advisors, Navalny returns to Russia. Knowing what to expect, Navalny tells his followers at the airport in Russia, “He’s not afraid to die.”  

Major Participants:
Alexei Navalny / Yulia Navalnaya / Maria Pevchikh / Christo Grozev
