Two men in tracksuits and wearing masks ran into the office of the opposition "Coalition Novosibirsk 2020" — which is also the headquarters of Navalny's local team — Olga Guseva, Navalny's team project manager in the Siberian city told CNN.

"One was holding the door, the other one with [screams of profanities] threw a bottle with a yellow liquid with a strong pungent chemical smell," Guseva told CNN.

According to Guseva, Tuesday's attack, which was recorded on security cameras, happened at around 12:25 pm local time. There were around 50 people in the office, including employees, attending a lecture for election observers.

Everybody had to leave the room because the smell was "unbearable" and people started coughing, Guseva told CNN, adding that that three opposition volunteers fell ill and were taken away by an ambulance.

"The volunteers feel sick and dizzy, they have convulsions and inability to breathe," Guseva told CNN.

Navalny, a prominent critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was taken ill on a flight from the Siberian city of Tomsk to Moscow on August 20, following a suspected poisoning.
