The Russian opposition figure Alexei Nawalny was poisoned with Novichok in August 2020. Two days after the attempt on his life, he was evacuated to the Charité Hospital in Berlin in a critical condition and he returned to Moscow in January 2021. During this time, the assassination attempt is meticulously reconstructed with the help of Bellingcat’s data analysis. The film of the year! Silvia Bauer
