جنازة نافالني في موسكو

By Jordi Bou

March 1, 2024 - من المقرر دفن زعيم المعارضة الروسية أليكسي نافالني في موسكو، بعد أسبوعين من وفاته المفاجئة في مستعمرة اعتقال في القطب الشمالي.

Kira Yarmysh, Navalny’s spokesperson, posted on X that a service for Navalny would be held on Friday at 14:00 (11:00GMT) in the Moscow district of Maryino where Navalny used to live.

The burial would take place at 16:00 (13:00GMT) at the Borisovskoye Cemetery, which is located on the other side of the Moskva River to the south.

The Russian authorities claim Navalny, Putin’s most formidable domestic opponent, fell unconscious and died after a walk at the “Polar Wolf” Arctic penal colony. Navalny’s death certificate, according to supporters, said he died of natural causes.

Since Navalny's death at a notorious penal colony in the Arctic Circle on 16 February, some 400 people have been arrested across Russia after laying flowers for him.
