Alexei Navalny placed in solitary confinement

Alexei Navalny (pictured) stated on Monday that he had been moved to solitary confinement in the Russian prison where he is imprisoned.

"The Kremlin wants to see its Gulag composed of silent slaves. But here I am, rallying people and demanding that some laws be obeyed, instead of begging for pardon," he said on Twitter.

Navalny was previously sentenced to nine years in prison on charges of fraud and contempt of court in March. This sentence came after a 2.5-year sentence he was already serving for violating probation after fleeing to Germany to recover from an attempted poisoning by Russian security forces in 2020.
