Navani went on a hunger strike last week to protest the denial of proper medical care by prison officials. One of his lawyers said last month that he suffered from severe back pain, which affected his ability to walk, and that his condition was exacerbated by the so-called “torture caused by sleep deprivation.”
Navani said that the prison did not have the nutrients and nutrients needed to maintain the health of the inmates. His body temperature was recorded as 38.1 degrees Celsius (100.6 degrees Fahrenheit) and he had a severe cough.
Navalny also said in a post on Monday that his roommate had a tuberculosis outbreak and that three of the group’s 15 prisoners had recently been hospitalized for the disease.
Navani said in the post: “What? Do you think it is in a state of emergency and the ambulance sirens are sounding? No one cares, the bosses only worry about how to hide statistics.”
“Practical Model” Criminal Colony
In a post shared on Monday, Navalny also criticized the recent reports of the internal conditions of the criminal colony by Russian state media.
Last week, a film crew from the Russian state-controlled television station RT visited the prison with Maria Butina. The report stated that the prison was “actually exemplary.”
Butina was convicted of conspiring to act as a foreign agent in the United States and served more than 15 months in prison in Florida. She pleaded guilty to trying to infiltrate conservative political circles and promote Russian interests before and after the 2016 presidential election.
Navalny opposes RT’s assessment of conditions.
“This is what our’ideal, model colony’ looks like. Any prisoner prays to God not to come here, but there is unsanitary condition, tuberculosis, lack of medicine. Looking at the terrible plate, they put our porridge Put it in, I’m generally surprised that there is no Ebola virus here,” Navani said in an Instagram post on Monday.
He added: “I have the right to pay out-of-pocket to invite specialist doctors to be protected by law. I will not give up this. Prison doctors can be trusted like national television,” he added.
Navalny, a long-time critic of President Vladimir Putin, was sentenced to prison earlier this year for violating the probation clause in the 2014 case, in which he was sentenced to three and a half years of probation. The Moscow court took into account the 11 months that Navalny had spent in house arrest as part of the decision, and last month replaced the rest of the suspended sentence with a suspended sentence.
