In the Fund of struggle against corruption are interested in that trip of Alexei Navalny for the treatment of vision in one of the European countries lasted for weeks. On the campaign trail departure will not affect, I hope the associates policy. Departure used his opponents, political analysts believe
You can not deny to allow
Alexei Navalny is planning to go abroad for eye treatment. Problems with your vision have arisen from an opposition politician after the attack, an unknown assailant who doused him with green paint on April 27 at the office of the Fund of struggle against corruption (FBK). The opposition leader said that he was diagnosed with a chemical burn of the cornea average degree and that he lost 80% vision in my right eye. According to him, he may need a corneal transplant.
Navalny will spend on treatment in Spain or Switzerland for about a week, told RBC his associates out of the Fund of struggle against corruption (of a possible treatment in these countries, the politician said in his blog). “I am not his medical officer. He will undergo surgery is not very complicated, but the operation, at least a week probably he’ll be spending,” said RBC head of the Federal headquarters of Bulk Leonid Volkov.
In team policy I hope that the Bulk will not stay abroad for a long time. “But of course here the priority is his health, and the campaign is thought out, it it will withstand even more than a week,” said another source RBC, close to the headquarters of the opposition leader.
According to Volkov, Navalny filed documents for “European visa”, however, in which country, he said. A politician will decide where it will go to be treated, “depending on which Department will be the direction and what clinic is that it will accept,” says the colleague Navalny. “He has the doctors recommendations on specific hospitals in Europe”, — said Volkov.
The politician received a chemical burn of the right eye on April 27, when he once again poured green paint at the office of the Fund of struggle against corruption (FBK). After that, Navalny in his blog said that he was advised to go for treatment to Switzerland or Spain. He reminded, can not go abroad, as he was for five years are not issued a passport. For example, in 2015 it is not released in Germany. Shortly after the post Bulk 4 may passport he was given.
Chemical burn of the eye with loss of vision may develop due to contact of the chemical agent with the cornea of the eye is the most delicate and transparent part, said RBC ophthalmologist Anna Ivanova. According to her, the green paint used in ophthalmology for the treatment of blepharitis, styes and other inflammatory lesions of the eyelid skin, and contact with medical brilliant green solution to the mucous membrane of the eye does not cause the defeat of the cornea. Therefore, the contact was not with the medical version of the solution, but rather with the industrial (the basis of the brilliant green — brilliant green aniline dye, used for dyeing. — RBC), she said. If it is impossible to cope with the disease by using drops and injections, the doctors resort to surgical treatment — corneal transplantation from donor (cadaver) of the eye, said the ophthalmologist. Surgical treatment is associated with a number of complications, in some cases it is not possible to achieve a high visual acuity by any of the known methods of treatment. After surgery, you will need to follow a strict regime so as not to slip and not damage the corneal flap, she explains.
Can not be elected
In February, Navalny confirmed his judgment on the case of embezzlement of funds of “Kirovles”: five years probation. The sentence imposed in the summer of 2013, then the defence tried to appeal the verdict. In early may of 2017 Kirov regional court once again recognized the legal verdict and left it in force. Then the politician’s lawyer Vadim Kobzev said that the Bulk of plans to appeal to the European court of human rights (ECHR).
A conviction does not allow the politician to run for President, reminded the RBC lawyer Vadim Klyuvgant (of his intention Navalny said in December 2016). “The record of conviction shall be removed or extinguished, or must be canceled by the verdict,” he said. Information that Navalny cannot run for presidential elections before the abolition of the sentence, confirmed by representatives of the CEC. However, Navalny and his team have repeatedly stated that they would continue the presidential campaign and hope that its scope will force the Kremlin to permit the registration of policies in the election.
