Alexei Navalny pictured walking down stairs, on a "clear road" towards recovering

On his Instagram account, the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has been pictured walking down stairs, days after the Charité hospital in Berlin said he had been taken off a ventilator and could breathe independently.

In the Instagram post, Navalny wrote: "Let me tell how my recovery is going. It is already a clear path although a long one."

He also stated "Quite recently, I did not recognize people and did not understand how to talk," Navalny wrote. "Every morning the doctor came to me and said: Alexey, I brought a board, let's figure out which word we can write on it. This drove me to despair because although I understood in general what the doctor wanted, I did not understand where to get the words from."
