Alexei Navalny was buried in Moscow: thousands of people came to say goodbye to the politician despite threats and detentions

In Moscow on March 1, the funeral of opposition politician, one of the main opponents of Vladimir Putin, Alexei Navalny, took place. He died on February 16 in a colony beyond the Arctic Circle, reports Meduza.


Alexei Navalny was buried at the Borisov cemetery. In addition to Frank Sinatra’s song “My Way,” the final theme from “Terminator 2” was played during the farewell at the cemetery. This was the politician's favorite film.

Navalny’s funeral service took place in the Church of the Icon of the Mother of God “Quench My Sorrows” in Maryino in the southeast of Moscow. Only relatives and friends were allowed into the church. The funeral service took less than 20 minutes.

Companions of the disgraced politician said that Anatoly Rodionov, the rector of the Church of the Icon of the Mother of God “Quench My Sorrows,” was “pressured” to conduct the funeral service for Alexei Navalny faster.


On the morning of March 1, people gathered at the temple to say goodbye to Navalny.

As numerous videos on social networks testify, thousands, if not tens of thousands of concerned Russians came to say goodbye to the politician.

The queue to the temple stretched for 1,5 km. When the coffin with the body of the oppositionist was brought to the church, people began chanting “Navalny!” and “We won’t forgive!”

When the hearse with the coffin drove away from the church, those gathered showered it with flowers. People also left flowers at the nearby Borisovo metro station; several bouquets were left in the snow at the entrance to the house in Maryino, where the Navalny family lived.

After the funeral service for the deceased, those who wished to say goodbye to him went to the cemetery. They held flowers and chanted “Russia will be free!”, “Navalny!”, “Russia without Putin,” “No to war” and “Love is stronger than fear.” The police pushed the participants of the funeral ceremony away from the cemetery fence. The bulk of them never made it to Navalny’s grave today.

US Ambassador Lynn Tracy, German Ambassador Alexander Graf Lambsdorff, French Ambassador Pierre Levy and diplomatic representatives of several other EU countries came to say goodbye to the politician.

Media reports that police detained several people who came to the ceremony. Among them was a man in a beige jacket who shouted “Who killed Navalny?”

Deputy Chairman of the Moscow branch of the Yabloko party Andrei Morev was detained in the Moscow subway after attending a funeral.

Former PARNAS deputy chairman Mikhail Shneider was arrested at the Lyublino metro station. The man, who was one of the applicants for the action in memory of Alexei Navalny and Boris Nemtsov, was told that he looked like a certain person who was wanted.

Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov warned supporters of Alexei Navalny about responsibility for participating in unauthorized rallies.

The press secretary noted that the Kremlin is not going to evaluate Navalny as a political figure.
