Russian dissident Navalny on hunger strike transferred to hospital

The Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, whose condition worsened in his third week on hunger strike, was transferred to the hospital in his prison due to the deterioration of his health condition.

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who was arrested and sent to a prison in the Vladimir Region on his return to Russia, where he was treated in Germany after he was poisoned, started a hunger strike on 31 March, citing ill-treatment and prison conditions. Russian media reported that Navalny was hospitalized in his prison as his condition worsened. It was reported that after the decision taken by the health commission, Navalny, where the transplant was carried out, was diagnosed with vitamin deficiency.


Anastasia Vasilyeva, president of the Russian Doctors Alliance Union and also one of Navalny’s doctors, published the last blood test result of the opposition leader on her social media account. The doctors, who examined Navalny’s test results, said that his kidneys were in bad condition and that he could die at any moment.


White House National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan reported that the United States conveyed to Russia that if Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny died in prison, this would have consequences.
