NAVALNY BROUGHT TO HOSPITAL AMID HEALTH FEARS
Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny was transferred on Monday to a hospital in a penal colony in Vladimir, 190 km east of Moscow, after nearly three weeks on hunger strike, the federal penitentiary service said.
A lawyer for Navalny said that his health had deteriorated and the situation was “only getting worse.”
Alexei Liptser told Reuters after visiting Navalny that he had again been denied a doctor of his choice and was determined to continue his hunger strike. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said what happens to Navalny in Russia’s custody is the responsibility of the Russian government and the world will hold them accountable.
