Moscow is determined to silence Alexei Navalny’s damned criticism of the Putin regime: A kangaroo court on Saturday denied its appeal against the judicial order to put the Russian opposition person in a remote prison camp for at least 2 1/2 years to send.
This after the Kremlin tried twice to assassinate Navalny, the last time with a lethal nerve agent. He recovered in Germany for five months and was arrested on his return home on January 17th.
The European Court of Human Rights considers among other things the embezzlement conviction of 2014 to be unlawful. Will Europe leave its findings behind?
From a cell with glass walls in the Moscow courtroom, Navalny spoke the truth again. « The explanation is a man’s hatred and fear – a man is hiding in a bunker »: Vladimir Putin. “I mortally offended him by surviving. . . And then I committed an even more serious crime: I didn’t run and I hid. «
Putin may have succeeded for now, but he won’t have the last word. Navalny has too many supporters to be silenced, even if he was sent to Siberia.
