The Federal Prison Service stated that a medical committee decided to transfer Navani to a cell in a hospital in the Vladimir region, but Anastasia Vasilieva, the personal physician of the opposition leader, condemned He was taken to another detention camp.
MADRID (EUROPA PRESS)-Russian prison authorities confirmed on Monday that the opposition Alexei Navalni had been transferred from prison to a hospital, although they emphasized that his health was “satisfactory.”
The Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) stated in a brief statement posted on its website that the Medical Council decided to transfer Navani to a prison in a hospital in the Vladimir region.
However, Navalni’s personal doctor Anastasia Vasilieva used her Twitter account to condemn the opponent not being sent to the hospital, but to another detention center to treat tuberculosis patients.
He said: “It’s an unprofessional decision by the Gestapo to transfer healthy people to different hospitals in different departments, but it is difficult for all patients to get TB.” He added, “This is an unprofessional decision by the Gestapo.”
During the day, Navalni’s ally Liubov Sobol told Russian broadcaster Ekho Moskvy that he doubted whether the opposition’s hunger strike would be realized because the conditions of detention “have deteriorated”.
Kremlin spokesman Dimitri Peskov (Dimitri Peskov) emphasized that the presidential palace does not supervise the health of prisoners. The Russian news agency Sputnik reported: “This is not our job at all.”
A spokesperson for the Russian Presidential Palace said: “If unauthorized demonstrations begin, they will automatically be classified as illegal demonstrations. The Forces of Order will act in accordance with Russian law.”
The Ministry of the Interior also expressed the same view. In addition, he emphasized: “The various departments of the Ministry of National Defense and other security agencies will not allow unrest in the situation and will take all necessary measures to maintain law and order in various regions of the country.”
According to the information collected by The Moscow Times newspaper, due to the coronavirus pandemic that has restricted meetings, the ministry requires people to participate in protests so as not to endanger their “health and safety.” He also asked the Russians to prevent the arrival of friends and family “especially minors”.
On the other hand, the Moscow court registered a request from the prosecutor’s office to declare the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK), headed by Navani and listed as a foreign agent, as an extremist.
The court spokeswoman Uuliana Solopova said that it also claimed that the NGO Foundation for the Protection of Civil Rights (FZPG), the Navalni Offices social movement had been declared an extremist because the prosecutor’s office argued Said that they seek to destabilize the country through “color revolutions.”
Therefore, the Moscow court scheduled the hearing for the next Monday at the request of the prosecutor’s office, which was confirmed by the court.
Navalni was arrested on arrival at Moscow airport on January 18 because he spent months in Germany recovering from the poisoning. The poisoning is the reason why the famous opponent directly accused the country’s President Vladimir Putin. They supported and arrested thousands of protesters.
The opposition leader went on a hunger strike at the end of March to condemn his condition and ask a doctor to see him. Since then, his allies have warned that his situation has deteriorated to the point that he will suffer partial paralysis.
In light of this situation, Navalni spokesperson Kira Yarmysh expressed concern for her in an account post on the social network Facebook on Sunday. He emphasized: “Alexei is dying now. Given his condition, this is only a few days away.”
In this sense, White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan warned Russian authorities on Sunday that if opponents die during the hunger strike, they will face “consequences.”
