Sullivan said Navalny's case would be on the agenda for Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun's visit to Russian Federation, which begins Tuesday.

Navalny, a politician and corruption investigator who is one of Putin's fiercest critics, fell ill on a flight back to Moscow from Siberia on Thursday and was taken to a hospital in the city of Omsk after the plane made an emergency landing.

"If the substance is identified and it's shown to be a poisoning, that would be basis for an investigation", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on a conference call.

German authorities posted a special detail of federal agents and city police at the hospital once Navalny arrived on August 22 out of suspicion he had been the victim of an attack.

Mr Navalny's wife, Yulia Navalnaya, has been visiting her husband every day and made no comment to reporters as she arrived on Tuesday.

Speaking today, Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov said allegations of Kremlin involvement "absolutely can not be true and are rather an empty noise".

Russian Federation sees no grounds to launch a criminal investigation into the circumstances of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny's sudden illness that German doctors attribute to poisoning, the Kremlin said Tuesday.

"The suspicion is... that somebody seriously poisoned Mr. Navalny, which, unfortunately, there are some examples of in recent Russian history, so the world takes this suspicion very seriously", Seibert said. "The Russian leadership definitely doesn't", the ministry said.

The Kremlin said Tuesday there is now no need to start a criminal investigation into Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny after German physicians said they believe he was poisoned.

The Russian doctors earlier suggested that Navalny had a "metabolic disorder" and low blood sugar.

Cholinesterase inhibitors are found in nerve agents, pesticides and some medicines, including those that relieve symptoms of dementia.

Navalny's supporters say he was poisoned by something in his cup of tea at a Siberian airport before he boarded a flight to Moscow.

The team of doctors who have examined Navalny since his arrival on Saturday had found the presence of "cholinesterase inhibitors" in his system, the statement said.

Navalny's spokeswoman Kira Yarmysh claimed Russia's refusal to evacuate him was a ploy to "play for time" and make it impossible to trace poison.

Asked whether he believed that Navalny had been poisoned for his political activities, Peskov said: "We can't consider anything because we don't know whether this was a poisoning". As one of the doctors who treated Navalny in Russian Federation says he and his family have received online threats of violence.

Experts have pointed out that Novichok - the Soviet-era nerve agent used to poison Sergei Skripal in Britain - was also a cholinesterase inhibitor.
