    1. Denying you’re being tortured, by way of starvation and withholding of medical care, is also a good way to prevent your family from being executed. This is Putin and the KGB, after all.

    2. I doubt the Russian people will accept he died of “natural causes” or “accidentally fell out of an 8 story window” but Putin may feel he’s better gone than not. Can’t say Navalny isn’t a heroic figure. Like John Lewis or MLK heroic! Knowing you may likely die for a cause.

  1. He has already survived being poisoned with a nerve agent by Putin The Poisoner, so this will be nothing.

    1. The Republican-led Texas state Senate passed a bill early on Thursday that would ban mail-in ballot drop boxes and most drive-thru voting—in the wake of controversy about the voting practices being used during the Nov. 3 election

    2. @S M Poisoner confessed after being tricked in to thinking he was dealing with someone else who was part of FSB

    1. @R. G. Biv
      No, supposedly he was fully recovered from his mysterious illness.
      This so called Novichok never killed its intended target yet.
      Maybe the British lab which is making it has a wrong formula.

  2. He shouldn’t have returned to Russia.. Could have still been a strong voice of protest in exile.

    1. Don’t think so. I understand your point, but he’s more dangerous for Putin in Russia than in exile.

    1. @Julie Tirado
      Don’t worry about Navralny.
      America is taking good care of his family, they are paying for his daughter to attend Stanford University among other things.
      He is willingly sacrificing himself to destroy Russia.

    1. I was also thinking of Bobby Sands and the other 9 hunger strikers in Northern Ireland back in 1981 when I heard about Navalny. I was nearly 19 years old when that happened, and it was all over US news here as well as elsewhere. I too hope it doesn’t go that far; this is a sad, awful situation.

    2. @Arla Dicey one of my first memories is may 5th 1981… I was only 5 years old…. It was the only time I ever saw my father cry…. I became a dedicated fenian at that moment…

    3. @mr Pepperidge Farms I am American, but I remember it being on the news quite a bit. It was a very sad time. I truly hope Navalny’s hunger strike does not take the same path.

  3. If this is your way of getting the International Community to stand with you my brother. Thumbs up!! The Lord is touched with the feelings of your infirmities. We pray for your release. God bless and your and those who believe in your quest for democracy.

  4. God save this brave man. His doing righteous work in this world. Standing up to evil. Are you? Or, are you accepting evil as just another part of your day?
    This man is making a stand. He’s not just a face on your screen. He’s the real deal. Are you?

  5. Servitude never ended in Russia, just new owners that tell the masses what to think, say & do.

    1. @ExposingMiLabs
      Russia had anarchy in the 90s during Yeltsin.
      People got tired of it real fast.
      Putin ended the lawlessness and created what is modern Russia today.

  6. For those whom wonder why he went back: if they succeed in killing him, millions will rise.

    He is sacrificing himself for what he believes to be the greater good.

    1. Don’t worry about Navralny.
      America is taking good care of his family, they are paying for his daughter to attend Stanford University among other things.
      He is willingly sacrificing himself to destroy Russia.

      Or the grater good in the eyes of America.
