Russian prison authorities transferred Alexei Navalny to a hospital and gave him vitamins on the 20th day of his hunger strike, international sources and media have reported.
The United Kingdom, the European Union and the United States have formed a common front to warn Russia about the profound consequences that the deterioration of health and even the very life of the opponent of the Vladimir Putin regime can bring.
Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, on a hunger strike in prison since March 31, has been transferred to a hospital for inmates in a nearby jail, the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia (FSIN, in its acronym in Russian) reported on Monday ).
“The decision has been made to transfer A. Navalny to the regional hospital for convicts, which is located in the IK-3 prison,” he said in a statement in the FSIN department for the Vladimir region, where the opponent is serving a sentence.
The prison services also indicated that the state of health of the main political enemy of President Vladimir Putin “is satisfactory.” In addition, they indicated that the activist agreed to take vitamin supplements, but the opposition’s environment has not yet confirmed whether he gave his consent.
During the day, Liubov Sobol, an ally of Navalny, told Russian broadcaster Ekho Moskvy that he has doubts about whether the hunger strike started by the opposition will come to fruition, given that the detention conditions “have worsened.” .
