The health condition of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, imprisoned in a concentration camp, is “satisfactory”. The Russian prison system said this on Thursday. The day before, those close to Navalny had reported that his health had significantly deteriorated.
“On March 24, medical examinations were conducted at the detainees’ request,” she added. Navalny’s health could have been described as “stable and satisfactory.”
However, his close aide Leonid Volkov and his lawyer, Olga Mikhailova, said on Wednesday that he had “been suffering from severe back pain since late last week.” What’s more, the 44-year-old opposition leader is said to have informed them that he has had symptoms of paralysis in one of his legs since Tuesday and is no longer able to get up.
A neurologist was able to see Navalny, but he did not give a diagnosis. Despite the pain, the opponent was given two anti-inflammatory ibuprofen pills, and that didn’t help. Another Navalny employee, Maria Pevstjek, said his life was in danger.
In addition, a meeting with his lawyer, which was supposed to take place on Wednesday, has been canceled. According to Volkov, this may mask the fact that Navalny may have been taken to the hospital bay in the prison. The opponent is the “ personal prisoner, the personal hostage of (Red President.Vladimir Putin, dangerous and crazy killer. ” Vladimir Putin bears personal responsibility for the life and health of Alexei Navalny in the Pokrov torture colony.
After an assassination attempt with a novichok nerve agent, Navalny received treatment in Germany. When he returned to Moscow on January 17, he was arrested on the spot. Shortly thereafter, a court sentenced him to 2.5 years in prison for failing to comply with the terms in another criminal case. He is serving that sentence in a penal colony in Pokrov, about 100 kilometers east of Moscow.
In an Instagram message recorded during a visit by his lawyers, Navalny described the prison serving his sentence last week as “ a true concentration camp 100 kilometers from Moscow. ” “There are video cameras everywhere, they are watching everyone and reporting the fewest violations,” Navalny said in the message. “I think someone high in the hierarchy read Orwell’s 1984 book.” At night, Navalny says he wakes up every hour because, according to authorities, he could pose a flying hazard.
