Germany has responded to Russia's four legal inquiries regarding Alexei Navalny. The Federal Office for Justice of the Federal Republic of Germany handed over to Moscow the protocols of Navalny's interrogation by the Berlin Prosecutor's Office. However, no medical information was passed on to Moscow, Deutsche Welle reports, citing a representative of the German Ministry of Justice.

The federal government proceeds from the fact that the Russian government will immediately take all the necessary steps to investigate the crime against Mr. Navalny, the source said.

The official assures that Berlin has responded to Moscow's all inquiries received in August and September 2020. He explained the refusal of medical information by German standards, making data on a person's health subject to 'stringent protection.' reported earlier that Navalny announced the date of his return to Russia.
