Bayan News – The Russian prison administration has announced that Alexei Navalny, a renowned critic of Russian President Putin, has died in custody at the “Matrosskaya Tishina” prison.

According to Reuters, the Russian prison authorities stated that Navalny felt unwell during a walk today, Saturday (February 16), and immediately lost consciousness.
