On April 16, Moscow doctors announced the critical condition of Alexei Navalny, who went on a hunger strike on March 31 to protest the fact that independent doctors were not allowed to visit him.
An independent doctor was not allowed to visit him in the colony. The doctors drew the attention of the head of the Federal Penitentiary Service, Alexander Kalashnikov, to the “sharp negative dynamics” of the prisoner's analyzes.
The patient "develops renal failure, which has already led to severe metabolic disorders" and "can lead to severe pathology of the cardiovascular system up to cardiac arrest," they warned. Navalny is experiencing severe pain in the spine and numbness in his leg.
“If you do not start treating, he will die in the coming days,” said one of the doctors, resuscitator Alexander Polupan, who was part of a group of doctors who flew from Moscow to Omsk last summer when Navalny was in a coma after the probable poisoning by Novichok. ...
The doctor called Navalny's condition "an absolute indication for hospitalization."
The world community also demanded to admit the doctor to Navalny.

Anastasia Vasilyeva, who was previously detained for protesting near the colony where Navalny is located, also said that the doctors tried to persuade them to let them in to see the patient for several hours, but the colony's leadership refused.
This letter was published by leading Western publications - Le Monde, The Economist, Der Spiegel, Politiken, La Repubblica.
