    Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny duped a Russian FSB state agent into revealing details of an attack on him with the nerve agent Novichok, the investigative group Bellingcat reports.

    Mr Navalny reportedly impersonated a security official to call the agent.

    The agent, Konstantin Kudryavtsev, told him the Novichok had been placed in a pair of Mr Navalny’s underpants.

    Mr Navalny, who is still recovering in Berlin, posted a recording of the long conversation on his YouTube channel.

    He collapsed on board a Russian airliner in August in the attack, which nearly proved fatal.
