Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny is making progress in his recovery after an alleged assassination attempt.

German doctors say Navalny is off a ventilator and able to breathe on his own. In a photo posted to his Instagram, he said he was now able to get up from his bed. A spokesperson for Navalny says he plans to return to Russia.

Germany's government conducted a toxicology report. It showed a Soviet-era chemical nerve agent in the opposition leader's system.

European leaders are calling on Russian President Vladimir Putin to answer for the poisoning. The Russian government has denied any involvement.
