"Let Me Finally See My Son": Alexei Navalny's Mother Appeals To Putin

Lyudmila Navalnaya, His Mother, Has Travelled To The Remote Prison Where He Died

In early March, a court situated in the Russian Far North will hear a case brought by the mother of dead opposition leader Alexei Navalny. Navalny’s mother has been prevented from seeing his body despite travelling to the far-flung prison where he died. Lyudmila Navalnaya travelled to the remote IK-3 prison where her son died, but since Saturday last, when she arrived, she has been prevented from seeing his body.

On Tuesday, she appealed to Russian President Vladimir Putin for the release of her son’s body.

The TASS news agency reported the court had received a complaint on “illegal acts” and that the hearing would take place behind closed doors.

Navalny’s team said on social media that the court in the city of Salekhard in Arctic would consider the case on March 4. This would be more than two weeks after Putin’s main critic opponent death.

Mother Appeals To Vladimir Putin 

Yesterday, Lyudmila Navalnaya broke her silence on her son’s death, appealing Putin to let her see her son’s body in a video address. “I appeal to you, Vladimir Putin. The solution to the issue depends only on you,” she says in the video that has been posted on the social media platform X by The Anti-Corruption Foundation.

“Let me finally see my son. I demand that Alexei’s body be released immediately so that I can bury him in a humane way.”

Navalny’s widow Yulia Navalnaya echoed the call. She has demanded that authorities allow him to be “buried with dignity.”

Putin has not commented or responded. The Russian president has been silent on Navalny’s in prison.
