Kremlin accused of covering up Navalny’s death

February 19, 2024 - Os aliados de Alexei Navalny acusaram as autoridades russas que tentarem dissimular os indícios, quando os investigadores dizem que o inquérito oficial foi alargado e que a causa da morte ainda não é conhecida.

Navalny, 47, fell unconscious and died suddenly on Feb 16 after a walk at the “Polar Wolf” penal colony where he was serving a three-decade sentence, the prison service said.

Navalny’s spokesperson Kira Yarmysh said that the Investigative Committee, the country’s top criminal investigation agency, informed Navalny’s Lyudmila Navalnaya that the cause of her son’s death remained unknown and that the official probe had been extended. “They lie, buy time for themselves and do not even hide it,” Yarmysh posted on X, formerly Twitter.

The death of the most prominent critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, has sparked outrage from western leaders and Navalny’s supporters, who accused Putin of being responsible.

Navalny’s widow, Yulia Navalnaya said she would continue the fight of her dead husband for a “free Russia” and called on opposition supporters to battle President Vladimir Putin with greater fury than ever.
