Berlin demands immediate medical help for Alexej Navalny

The federal government has expressed concern about the health of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, who has been in prison for two years, and has called for immediate medical attention.

“It was with great concern that we heard the reports about Alexej Navalny’s critical state of health,” said deputy government spokeswoman Christiane Hoffmann on Friday in Berlin. She referred to information that “his condition has deteriorated significantly due to inhuman prison conditions, including long-lasting solitary confinement”.

The 46-year-old Navalny is the most prominent critic of Kremlin boss Vladimir Putin in Russia and is being held in a high-security prison outside of Moscow. He was sentenced to nine years in prison for embezzlement, which Navalny dismisses as politically motivated.
