Transcript for Poisoned Russian opposition leader shares defiant warning
Overseas tonight, Russian opposition leader alexei navalny with a defiant message, after surviving being poisoned, he says the work of Vladimir Putin. Here's our senior foreign correspondent Ian Pannell. Reporter: Tonight, alexey navalny in a defiant warning to Vladimir Putin. Speaking to "60 minutes," Russia's leading activist was crystal clear. You think that Mr. Putin's responsible. I don't think. I'm sure that he is responsible. Reporter: Navalny boarding a plane from siberia to Moscow in August and felt ill almost immediately. I said to the flight attendant, I was poisoned and I'm going to die. Reporter: A fellow passenger recording the sound of moaning. Navalny was rushed to the hospital. Tests revealing he'd actually been given the deadly nerve agent noek chock. It's something terrifying, and Putin is enjoying it. I think it's extremely important that everyone, of course, including and maybe in the first of all, president of United States, to be very against using chemical weapons in the 21 century. Reporter: Navalny, critical of Putin, but also president trump, for not joining world leaders in condemning the attack. I think for Putin, why he's using this chemical weapon to do both, kill me and, you know, terrify others. Reporter: Navalny's still recovering, but planning to return to Russia when he's well and to take on Putin once more. David? All right, Ian Pannell from London.
