Kremlin: Navalny's health not a question for Putin

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov reiterated on Thursday that questions about Alexey Navalny's health situation should not be addressed to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The matter falls under the jurisdiction of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) specifically, Peskov explained.

Navalny is reportedly experiencing health issues after going on a hunger strike over what he claimed was the authorities' refusal to allow better medical care for him. He is serving the remaining two and a half years of his three and a half year prison sentence on embezzlement charges.
