Boris Titov explained the reason why he stayed at a hotel in Tomsk on the day when Alexei Navalny was poisoned there. Earlier, FBK representative Maria Pevchikh called the presence of the leader of the “Party of Growth” a strange moment.

Titov's words were voiced by Anastasia Kichenko, representing the organization. She pointed out that the politician actually arrived in Tomsk on August 20 and stayed at one of the local hotels. His visit is due to his participation in supporting the candidacy of Elena Ulyanova in the elections to the City Duma. The check-in took place around 09:00, at that moment they ran into representatives of the FBK, but by that time there was already information on the Web about Navalny's hospitalization. In addition, law enforcement officers and officers of the Russian Guard were present at the institution itself. Titov only managed to change his clothes and immediately left, because at 09:30 the plans included a meeting with Governor Sergei Zhvachkin.
The leader of the Party of Growth told RBC that he learned about the incident with Navalny at the airport. Only after arriving at the hotel it became clear that this is the same place where the poisoning occurred.
