ALEXEI NAVALNY has suffered a serious health incident in jail as reports suggest his life could be at risk.
Navalny is known as one of the top enemies of the Kremlin and reportedly hasn’t been fed for days as he suffered a “hunger faint” and fell over in his cell.
Alexey Navalny’s spokesperson Kira Yarmysh spoke about the worrying situation on X.
She wrote: “He fell ill in his cell last week. He got dizzy and laid down on the floor. The colony staff came over immediately, lowered the cot, laid Alexey down and gave him an IV.
“We don’t know what it was, but given the fact that he’s not being fed, is being kept in a punishment cell with no ventilation and the time for walks has been reduced to a minimum, it looks like a hunger faint.”
According to Alexei’s lawyers, the 47-year-old Russian man wasn’t allowed to be seen by anyone after he had fainted.
Lawyers were told they had to wait to see Alexei until the time was right after repeatedly being denied entry to where he was being kept.
Alexey has since been spoken to by his team but all communication has been stopped for three days since the lawyers last saw him.
Yarmysh continued: “Now it’s the third day that we don’t know where he is.
“Before that, there were at least occasional letters from him, albeit censored ones, but there have been no letters all week.
“The fact that we can’t find Alexey is particularly worrying.”
The news comes just as Russian President Vladimir Putin announced he will run again for president in the 2024 elections in a move that could see him stay in power until at least 2030.
The Russian tyrant is all but certain to be elected for a fifth time after two already brutal decades of his iron-fist rule.
