Alexei Navalny’s followers say that his life was ‘marred by thread’
Supporting Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has called on the Russian people to demonstrate their brutality in prisons, so that they can die soon.
Leonid Volkov, who runs Navalny’s foundation from exile in Vilnius, Lithuania, told a video on Sunday that the life of a stutterer was “hung by a thread” for 19 days of starvation for refusing to go to prison to allow him to see a doctor of his choice.
“Yet we may want to stop thinking about this, isolating ourselves, or changing the subject – it doesn’t change the fact that he is killing Alexei Navalny. In a very dangerous way. In the eyes of all of us,” Volkov said.
“And the question comes before all of us, whether we want to or not: are we willing to do anything to save the life of a man who has risked his life for so many years?”
Yaroslav Ashikhmin, a pathologist, wrote the results on Saturday that he said Navalny had increased levels of organisms that could cause kidney failure, as well as dangerous potassium which could lead to cardiac arrest “at any moment”.
The sharp decline in Navalny’s health comes as the Kremlin appears to be determined to address the threat of President Vladimir Putin’s main opposition.
Russian judges say on Friday they have moved to the Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation and their regional offices declaring it a “dangerous group”, an unlikely event that would shut down its operations while exposing its group to prosecution.
Navalny’s supporters described their group’s brutality and brutal treatment in prison as a “critical attack” for the Kremlin in response to its rejection of Putin’s credentials over the years of economic collapse.
“If we don’t talk about it now, the darkest times for free people are near. Russia will be hopeless. Russia’s peaceful political process is impossible, “said Ivan Zhdanov, Navalny’s chief of staff.
Navalny’s party called for the demonstration – which he called “the final battle between the good and the neutral” to take place on Wednesday evening in a courtroom outside the Kremlin. Putin is due to address his annual talks with the Russian elite a few hours earlier.
The rally will be Navalny’s biggest attempt – as well as the Kremlin’s desire to end it – after a strong response to the police forcing them to abandon their arrests in more than 100 cities in January.
Navalny, 44, was arrested at the Moscow airport in January shortly after returning from Germany, where he spent five months recovering from a poisoned by neurosurgeon novichok.
He was later sentenced to two and a half years in prison for missing political rallies in connection with the suspended sentence in 2014 – including several when he was in a coma after poisoning.
On Saturday, US President Joe Biden said Navalny’s treatment was “unfair, completely unfair, unjustified as a result of poisoning and beatings. Wrong”.
The Kremlin has refused to take part in Navalny’s persecution, arrests, and feelings.
“They are not allowed to die in prison, but I can say that Navalny, he acts like a tyrant, absolutely,” Andrei Kelin, Russia’s ambassador to the UK, told the BBC on Sunday. “His goal in all of this is to attract her attention.”
Last month, he was transferred to a prison known as the concentration camp.
He continues hunger at the end of March in protest of the guards’ refusal to allow him to be treated by a doctor who loved him for the pain of nerves from herniated discs in his back, as well as sleep disorders he said were “torturing”.
Navalny’s team is facing a major setback in organizing the show after councilors saw their organization as “dangerous”.
The mention compares Navalny and his followers with the new Nazi party, al-Qaeda and the Japanese group Aum Shinrikyo. It means that its founding leadership could face up to 10 years in prison and his aides could be jailed for up to eight years for providing this, according to Pavel Chikov, Agora’s chief of staff, legal aid.
Since Russia declared Jehovah’s Witnesses a “extremist group” in 2017, 463 members of the Christian religion have been charged with felony criminal mischief, and police have searched the homes of 1,416 members of the group, Chikov said.
Many other Navalny activists are in jail for violating health regulations in preparation for illegal demonstrations to be released in January.
Police have arrested Zhdanov’s elderly father, as well as several staff members in the Navalny regional capital in recent weeks.
On Friday, the court also ordered Pavel Zelensky, a founder of the foundation, to serve two years in prison for posting two tweets known as “mature”.
