McFaul: Putin’s Treatment Of Navalny Proves ‘This Is A Regime That Is In Decay’ | Deadline | MSNBC


    1. 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.

    2. @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.

    3. @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.

    4. @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.

  1. 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.

    1. @Helene Flamand no they didnt.
      CNN would be all over it, showing it in our faces evry day or any news involving navalny. And so would german news..

    2. @Devo Not sure what you are watching but it sure ain’t CNN. We saw what the Germans said.

    3. @Helene Flamand – That’s exactly what my husband said! That’s got to be the explanation – Martyrdom.

    4. @Cleo XO He may be hoping for a popular uprising. For that, he will sacrifice himself. Your husband is wise.

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

    Don’t Worry, Moscow Micth got your Back.

    1. Yep, wonder what’s going to happen there when the Oligarch gets his assets frozen.
      Want to get Mitch’s attention? That’s a sure fire way.

  3. 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.

    1. @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.

    1. Sounds like it’s not that slow. Putin is enjoying the suffering of his enemy. It is murder in public of an outspoken critic of Putin. His only serious rival.

    2. @Sarah F I see. You are probably right. Putin won’t let him have even a thing but gruesome death. Now I know

  4. 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!!

    1. @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.

    2. 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

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

  6. 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.

    1. 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.

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

    1. @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.

    2. @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.

    3. @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.

    4. @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.

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

  9. 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.

    1. @greenhometony
      Did i spoil you Russia hating little party ?
      I only speak for the majority of MY people.

    2. @Alec72HD Butina was actually imprisoned unjustly by the American regime, while navalny is just a whiny, spoiled brat lmao
