Why would they have wanted to keep him in Russia? It's better for them if he's outside Russia, sick or healthy, dead or alive, anyway. Navalny is a foreign issue now, they'd not even want him to be buried in Russia, I guess, because it would be a domestic event and domestic news then. He's mostly finished as an activist even if he survives and supposed to spend the rest of his life in retirement in Germany.

Navalny is a victim of the Russian oligarchy anyway, the head of which is Putin himself. It should be obvious to anyone that eliminating Navalny was in Putin's interest in this current situation which can potentially destabilise Russia as well.
