Government Agency News Press release

Aleksey Navalny, an opposition politician and anti-corruption nominee, was sentenced to an extra 19 years in prison by a Russian court on false charges of so-called” extremism ,” according to the United States. An unfair trial has come to an unfair finish.

The Kremlin has been working for years to still Navalny and stop his demands for accountability and transparency from reaching the Soviet people. Russian authorities once again demonstrated the absurdity of their event and the lack of due process provided to those who dare to criticize the program by holding this most recent trial in surprise and restricting his lawyers’ access to purported proof.

However, Russian officials have consistently denied Navalny access to medical care, placed him in solitary confinement, and violated his right to legal counsel. Russia’s ongoing detention of Navalny, Vladimir Kara-Murza, and the more than 500 different designated political prisoners is highly denounced by the United States. We’ll keep a close eye on their circumstances and push for the transfer of everyone who was wrongfully detained. We once more call for Mr. Navalny’s quick discharge and an end to the ongoing suppression of independent accents in Russia on behalf of his family, coworkers, and supporters worldwide.
