“In correctional colony No. 3, convicted Navalny A.A. After the walk I felt bad and almost immediately lost consciousness. Medical workers from the institution arrived immediately and an emergency medical team was called. All necessary resuscitation measures were carried out, but did not yield positive results. Emergency doctors confirmed the death of the convict. The causes of death are being established,” the FSIN said in a statement.

According to sources, the cause of Navalny’s death was a detached blood clot.

On February 14, the politician’s press secretary, Kira Yarmysh, reported that Navalny was sent to a punishment cell (punishment cell) for the 27th time during his imprisonment. Correctional Colony No. 3 has a bad reputation: there are terrible living conditions and a very low level of medical care.

Alexei Navalny was 47 years old.


NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that all the facts regarding Navalny's death must be established, and "Russia must answer serious questions," reports Meduza.

The Secretary General noted that he was “deeply saddened and concerned” by the death of the politician. “Alexey Navalny has been a strong voice for freedom and democracy for many years. NATO and its allies called for the immediate release of the politician,” Stoltenberg said.

“If this is confirmed, it will be a terrible tragedy. And given the Russian government's long and sordid history of harming its opponents, this raises real and obvious questions about what happened. Once confirmed and more detailed information is available, we will determine what happens next,” White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said.

The State Duma stated that Navalny’s death is beneficial to the West.

The death of opposition politician Alexei Navalny is beneficial to “the enemies of Russia,” said the leader of the party “A Just Russia - For Truth” Sergei Mironov.

“The death of Alexei Navalny, previously convicted of extremism, is beneficial to many enemies of Russia, including those who tried to poison him earlier,” Mironov wrote in his Telegram channel.

According to him, the cause of Navalny’s death must be investigated in the most thorough manner in order to repel “imminent information attacks from the West.” Mironov emphasized that Navalny’s death occurred against the backdrop of discussions of possible peace negotiations with Russia.

Alexei Navalny was taken into custody in January 2021 when he returned to Russia from Germany, where he was receiving treatment after being poisoned with Novichok. After this, the court replaced the policy of a suspended sentence with a real one in the Yves Rocher case. In March 2022, the court sentenced Navalny to nine years in a general regime colony, accusing him of fraud in collecting donations and “contempt” of court.
