Emergency doctor came to the cell – Kremlin opponent Navalny seriously ill in penal camp


Kremlin opponent Alexei Navalny, who was imprisoned in Russia, is seriously ill again, according to his lawyer Vadim Kobsev. At the weekend, because of the severe abdominal pain, an emergency doctor had to be called to the prison camp at night, Kobsev writes on Twitter on Tuesday. “An unknown disease that nobody treats,” he added.

The 46-year-old Navalny, who already looked quite emaciated on previous video recordings, has now lost another eight kilograms in body weight in about two weeks. Prison authorities did not pass on the drugs sent by Navalny’s mother, the lawyer said.

Lawyer demands toxicological investigation
Kobsev continued that he did not rule out that Navalny, who narrowly survived an assassination attempt with the neurotoxin “Novichok” in 2020, would now be made targeted again. He therefore demands a toxicological and radiological examination of his client.

“That may sound like nonsense and paranoia to others, but not to Navalny na Novichok,” the lawyer explained. Navalny himself blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin for the attack on him. The Kremlin rejected this.

Putin opponents in camps for more than two years
For more than two years, Navalny has been under extremely harsh prison conditions in a penal camp about 160 miles northeast of Moscow. He was convicted of alleged fraud by a Russian court, but the prominent opponent of Putin is internationally regarded as a political prisoner. In recent months he was repeatedly transferred to a small solitary cell, where he repeatedly complained about health problems.
