  1. Biden needs to step up and make an example out of Putin.

    • frances simmonds | April 8, 2021 at 2:51 AM | Reply

      Devo err trumps the one who was treated as a joke by just about every dictator out there. He was Putin’s puppet and Kim Jong un’s lap dog.

    • @Elaine Burnett and this is a democrat who claims to fight for the poor and immigrants. But gets trigged on Youtube by spelling.

      Saaa dude.

    • @frances simmonds think you dont know what treating like a joke is.. 🤡🤡🤡

      It’s fine this is why you probally voted Biden and thought it would make a diffrence.. Here is hoping that in 4 years we got a better candidate.

    • @Sarah F oooh typical democrat fake news. It’s fine i know Trump will torment you in your dreams for many many years to come.

      Ill wait for your proof of me being Russian.

    It’s crazy, he was poisoned and with permission left the country for medical treatment. When he returned he was arrested for breaching his parole and tossed into prison.

  3. Russian Oil Money has been Invested in
    Kentucky Silently during Trump Regime.

    Don’t Worry, Moscow Micth got your Back. 😎👍

  4. Not enough is being done to help this man. The EU ,Britain and the US must come together and place pressure on Putin and his inner circle.

    • I absolutely agree with you.

    • @john smith Russian republican a diffrend word for Democrat? hmm i like it 😀

    • @john smith
      We have to do something to save American hero rotting in Russian jail.
      American government spent a lot of money paying for his daughter education at Stanford University. And that is just the tip of the iceberg.
      If Navalny dies all that investment goes to waste.
      Quickly, send the Seal Team 666.

      Devo keep donating, drinking the koolaid and refusing a vaccine 🤣🐑🐑🐑

    So, does anybody other than me think he’s being slowly poisoned?

    Putin has no soul! This prison story is sick. It’s just heartbreaking! I have never seen anything like this happening! Or I should say, this treatment is beyond cruel! Like the days of Stalin! Or something! Terribly grim!!

    • @john smith

      British literally wrote the book on pretend poisoning.

      And a female British citizen spent a night with Navralny before the coma.
      True story.

      @Alec72HD they should start with the DC RIOTERS

    • And Julian Assange has /is being treated humanly?
      UK keeping him incarcerated, his health rapidly deteriorating, after his sentence for “” skipping bail” had been served. Why? Because the US want him extradited

    • Andrey Kozyrev | April 8, 2021 at 6:11 PM | Reply

      Look at US South Boarder, you will see plenty…

  7. Our Republicans support Putin. Unless led by President Biden, ain’t nothin’ gonna happen. — Signed, a veteran

  8. Just look how close our country came to this type of life when Trump tried to overthrow our elections. This is how life here would be under a dictatorship.

  9. They arrested his doctor & the reporters, too? This is spiraling😔😡

    • PonderingStudent | April 8, 2021 at 2:02 PM | Reply

      They already arrested his lawyer as she gave a statement to journalists outside the courtroom after one of Navalny’s hearings, some while ago. Its already pretty spiralled.

  10. Putin: “I hereby pass a law to revoke term limits.”
    GQP: “Man, why didn’t we do that?! Dang it!”
    America: 😏

      @Devo They are already in prison. One big prison that they are too afraid to break out of because they’ve seen what happens to those who try. I admire your show of devotion though – I’ve no doubt you must get well paid.

    • @You’re Terrible Muriel
      Even BBC recently admitted that there is a lot more ppl despising Navralny in Russia than those supporting him.
      Navralny has 1-2%% vocal support.
      And 50% want him to get lost.

    • You're Terrible Muriel | April 8, 2021 at 1:56 AM | Reply

      @Alec72HD Hahahaha… If that was truly the case, Putin would not have bothered with trying to have him killed. Too bad for Vlad that his stupid goons failed … again! If Putin is as loved by the Russian people and as popular as you claim, he would not see anyone else as a threat to his power. But I do admire your devotion to the cause, I really do.

    • @You’re Terrible Muriel
      Guess what, British invented self induced coma 400 years ago as was in the plot of Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare.
      Somebody put Navralny in a coma and that’s all we know.

    • You're Terrible Muriel | April 8, 2021 at 2:41 AM | Reply

      @Alec72HD 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 … Hahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaa. Oh man… you’re too funny! 🤣🤣🤣

    Reminds me of trump wanting to throw his opponents in jail.

    — GEORGIA: Woman Lawmaker is arrested for knocking on door.
    — RUSSIA: Woman Doctor is arrested for wanting access to her patient.

  13. There is grainy footage on YouTube of Navalny walking around in the prison and talking to a guard. I wonder if that footage was really him or was not recent but from when he first arrived since he now says he can barely walk. There is also footage of Maria Butina visiting the prison and arguing with Navalny. I hate this cruel story.

    I hope Navalny becomes a Martyr that actually changes things.

  15. junior milan | April 7, 2021 at 10:03 PM | Reply

    If navalny died in prison world Comminity must respond big way and put more sanctions

    Remember they will cut off communications. And show you what they want you to see.

  17. Pootin-Poison-Panties needs to have “an accident”.

  18. Four books everyone should read:

    – ‘Surviving Autocracy’
    By: Masha Gessen

    – ‘The Dictator’s Handbook’
    By: Bruce Bueno de Mesquita and Alastair Smith

    – ‘On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century’
    By: Timothy D. Snyder

    – ‘Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning’
    By: Timothy D. Snyder

  19. My prayers are with Mr. Navalny.
