he was Putin's greatest enemy. Biden blames the Kremlin chief

Alexei Anatolyevich Navalny, the last leader of the Russian opposition, died at the age of 47 in the prison where Vladimir Putin imprisoned him, 60 kilometers from the Arctic Circle. According to Russian sources, the doctors who tried to revive him said his death was caused by a thrombosis “after a walk,” as the hour of frosty air in Siberia is perhaps defined. According to the family and many Western leaders, it was instead an assassination attempt instigated by Putin, who had already tried to have him killed in 2020 with a Novichok-class nerve agent. “Vladimir Putin is responsible for Navalny’s death,” American President Joe Biden said at a conference. “I'm not surprised and shocked at the same time.” “What happened is proof of Putin's brutality.” Last December, Navalny disappeared from the prison in the Vladimir region where he had been held after his return to Russia in 2021 . In January, it was revealed that he had been transferred to IK-3, the country's worst prison, “Polar Wolf”, where prisoners lose all their teeth due to poor nutrition. There he had to serve 19 of the 30 years in prison that had been imposed on him on general extremism charges. Despite the harsh prison conditions, he did well.

Navalny, the latest news

Last Wednesday he visited his lawyer, and on Thursday he spoke via video in front of a court to which he had turned to protest against the punishments that were repeatedly imposed on him for unfastened buttons or other excuses. But he was cheerful and had joked with the judge and asked him to send him some money because he was running out of fines. According to his spokeswoman Kira Yarmish, Navalny had spent 308 days in solitary confinement over the past year and a half. In his last message he wrote: “You just gave me 15 days in a punishment cell. It's the fourth in less than two months. His death was announced in a cold press release: “On February 16, 2024 – it says in the text – in the correctional colony No. 3, the imprisoned Navalny AA felt sick after a walk and lost consciousness. The resuscitation measures did not lead to a positive result.” An autopsy will be necessary, but who knows when, whether and by whom it will be carried out to determine the causes of death, but the family has no doubts: “I want Putin, his friends, his government,” said his informed wife. When Yulia attended the Munich Security Conference, she knew that she would be punished for what they did to our country, my family and my husband.

@ilmessaggero.it Russian dissident Alexei Navalny died in the Kharp special regime penal colony in the Arctic region of Yamalo-Nenets, where he was imprisoned. This was reported by the Tass agency, according to which the dissident felt unwell after a walk. It didn't take long for NATO and European countries to react, and the lawyer was sent to the penal colony.

The reactions

As he addressed the delegates from the stage, stirring everyone, he added, “What should I do?” Leave the conference or stay here and give my speech? I will do what he would have done, I will stay here to defend the principles he fought for. For Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky there is no doubt: “He was killed, and Putin will have to be held accountable for his crimes.” European Council President Charles Michel wrote in X: “The European Union is taking the Russian regime alone responsible for this tragic death.” “A sad reminder of what Putin and his regime represent,” added Commission President Ursula von der Leyen. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called for a “transparent investigation”. Moscow responded with Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova: “The reaction of NATO leaders in the form of accusations directed against Russia shows the nature of these countries.” There is no forensic investigation yet, but the West's conclusions are already available.” Not in Italy, given the very cautious statement by Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni: “Navalny's death while in custody is another sad sign that warns the international community.” We express our deepest condolences and hope that this disturbing incident will be fully clarified. Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani also shared a warning, saying he was “very saddened by Navalny’s death after years of persecution and prison.” As the news broke, people in Moscow laid hundreds of bouquets of flowers at the Solovetsky Monument, which commemorates the victims of Stalin's repression. There were so many flowers that they covered the monument. But Putin is silent: elections will take place from March 15 to 17 that will confirm him in power for a fifth term. He will soon beat Stalin as Russia's longest-serving leader and perhaps even as the president with the fewest living opponents.
