The Department of the Federal Penitentiary Service for the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug reported the death of oppositionist Alexei Navalny in correctional colony No. 3. He felt ill after the walk and lost consciousness. Doctors pronounced him dead. He was 47 years old. President Vladimir Putin has already been informed of the death of Alexei Navalny.

“All necessary resuscitation measures were carried out, but did not yield positive results,” the message says. According to the Federal Penitentiary Service, the causes of death are being established. According to an RT source, a blood clot broke loose.

The Labytnang city hospital told Interfax that the ambulance arrived at the colony in less than seven minutes. “The doctors who arrived at the scene continued the resuscitation measures that were already being provided by the colony’s doctors. And they spent more than half an hour. However, the patient died,” the hospital reported.

The Public Monitoring Commission for the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug reported that there were no health complaints from Alexei Navalny. The local department of the Investigative Committee of Russia began an investigation into the death of the politician. A special commission of managers and employees of operational and medical units of the central office of the Federal Penitentiary Service was sent to the colony.

Kommersant correspondent Andrei Kolesnikov asked Dmitry Peskov if the president knew about the death of Alexei Navalny. “Yes, he was informed. Doctors will look into it,” the press secretary said. “As far as we know, in accordance with all current rules, the FSIN carries out all inspections. There is a certain set of rules in this regard that the FSIN is guided by,” said Dmitry Peskov. When asked whether the oppositionist’s blood clot had actually broken off, the press secretary replied: “I don’t know. The doctors must find out."

Alexei Navalny's lawyer Leonid Solovyov refused to comment on Novaya Gazeta's report on the death of his client. “By decision of Alexei Navalny’s family, I am not commenting on anything at all. Let's figure it out now. Alexey had a lawyer on Wednesday. Everything was fine then,” the lawyer said.

The oppositionist's press secretary Kira Yarmysh (recognized by the Ministry of Justice as a foreign agent) reported in X that his associates have no confirmation of the death of Alexei Navalny. According to her, the politician’s lawyer flew to Kharp.

In February 2023, Human Rights Commissioner Tatyana Moskalkova said that she received 50 requests from Alexei Navalny. During his imprisonment, Alexei Navalny was regularly sent to a punishment cell (punishment cell). On January 14, Kira Yarmysh (recognized by the Ministry of Justice as a foreign agent) reported that Alexei Navalny was sent to a punishment cell for the 27th time.

At first, Alexei Navalny served his sentence in a fraud case in maximum security IK-6 in the village of Melekhovo in the Vladimir region. At the end of last year, lawyers reported that he had not been taken to court hearings via video link since the beginning of December. Later it turned out that Alexey Navalny is no longer listed in IK-6, but is in correctional colony No. 3 in the village of Kharp in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.

On February 2, 2021, Alexey Navalny’s suspended sentence in the case of embezzlement from Yves Rocher was replaced with a real one due to a violation of the terms of the probation period, for which he was required to report to the inspectorate. The politician was sentenced to three and a half years in prison.

In the fall of 2021, immediately after the court banned the structures of Alexei Navalny, several cases were brought against him under “extremist” articles. The politician was charged with creating an extremist community and calling for extremism. In March 2022, the politician was sentenced to nine years in a penal colony in a case of fraud and insult to court, and in August 2023, to 19 years in a special regime penal colony in a case of extremism.

In August 2020, Alexey Navalny was poisoned with an unknown substance in Omsk; he was later transported to Germany for treatment. According to Western experts, the oppositionist was poisoned with a substance from the Novichok group of toxic warfare agents.

The Russian side has repeatedly said that the German authorities never provided the results of the politician’s analyzes at Russia’s request. In an interview with an NBC journalist, Vladimir Putin denied the version that he allegedly could have ordered an assassination attempt on Alexei Navalny. “We are not in the habit of killing anyone,” the president said.
