Together with Elon Musk and Biden: Navalny entered the list of the most influential people according to Time
Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny is included in the traditional annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, compiled by Time magazine. Writes about it "Voice of America".
An essay about Navalny, authored by another prominent opposition figure, Garry Kasparov, who lives in immigration, was published in Categories Icons (can be translated as "Symbols" or "Idols"). In addition to Navalny, this section of the Time list includes British Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, American singer Britney Spears, an Iranian human rights activist, Sakharov Prize laureate Nasrin Sotude and others, who are fighting for release from custody.
As Kasparov writes, "in a world that is increasingly focusing on protecting its own interests and self-preservation, Navalny did the impossible this year - he was selfless and courageous." Most likely, the author is referring to Navalny's return to Russia in January 2021, immediately after which he was arrested, and now the disgraced politician is still under arrest.
“Now Navalny sits in one of the worst prisons in Russia, his life is in the hands of a dictator who, judging by all the available evidence, has already tried to kill him because Navalny exposed the corruption of his regime reaching grotesque proportions. Navalny saw no choice but to risk everything to bring about change in his country. Even the all-powerful Vladimir Putin recognizes the strength of one person who is not afraid, ”Kasparov writes.
Alexei Navalny is in a colony on the long-standing criminal case "Yves Rocher". Human rights activists recognized him as a political prisoner. Last year, he survived an attempt at poisoning and was treated for a long time in Germany, but decided to return to Russia, despite the threat of arrest.
