Mourners detained as Kremlin remains silent on Navalny’s death

0 minutes, 59 seconds Read

From behind bars, Navalny was a staunch opponent of Moscow’s full-scale military offensive against Ukraine, and watched helplessly as the Kremlin dismantled his organization and locked up its associates.

Dozens of his top supporters fled into exile and continued to campaign against attacks on Ukraine and repression inside Russia.

Late last year, Navalny was moved to a remote Arctic prison colony nicknamed “Polar Wolf” in Russia’s Yamalo-Nenets region in northern Siberia.

He said in January that his daily routine included prison visits in freezing temperatures.

Since being jailed in 2021, he has spent more than 300 days in solitary confinement, where prison authorities have kept him for alleged minor violations of prison rules.

The last post on Navalny’s Telegram channel, which he managed through his lawyers and team in exile, was a tribute to his wife, posted on Valentine’s Day.

In a documentary filmed before his return to Russia, Navalny was asked what message he wanted to leave for the Russian people should he die or be executed.

He said, “Don’t give up. You shouldn’t give up, you can’t give up.”

“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good people to do nothing. So, do nothing.”
