Jailed Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny dead

By Jordi Bou

February 16, 2024 - Imprisoned Russian opposition leader and vocal Putin critic, Alexei Navalny, has died in an Arctic penal colony aged 47.

Navalny, an outspoken critic of President Putin, has been in Russian jail since 2021 on charges widely viewed as politically motivated.

Navalny’s death robs the disparate Russian opposition of its most courageous leader as Putin prepares for an election which will keep the former KGB spy in power until at least 2030.
