Alexei Navalny Dies in Russian Prison

Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny, who had 2% support in polls before he was jailed, died in a penal colony in northern Russia, prison officials announced on Friday.

All the defenders of the "rules-based international order" who stayed silent (or cheered) the death of Gonzalo Lira in a Ukrainian prison last month and are still supporting the imprisonment and torture of Julian Assange are now outraged over Navalny's death.

From The Hill, "Navalny dies in Russian prison at age 47, officials say":
Alexei Navalny, the leader of Russian opposition against President Vladimir Putin, died Friday in prison at the age of 47, officials said.

The Russian Federal Prison Service said Navalny felt unwell after a walk and lost consciousness. An ambulance arrived and its crew tried to rehabilitate him but was unsuccessful, it added.

The death of Navalny quickly triggered consternation around the world and is likely to be seen by the Biden administration as an aggressive and bold act by Russian President Vladimir Putin's regime.

Vice President Kamala Harris, speaking at a Munich security conference, quickly cast doubt on Russia's version of events.

"We've all just received reports that Alexei Navalny has died in Russia. This is of course terrible news, which we are working to confirm," Harris said.

"My prayers are with his family, including his wife Yulia, who is with us today," Harris continued. "If confirmed, this would be a further sign of Putin's brutality. Whatever story they tell, let us be clear: Russia is responsible, and we will have more to say on this later."
None of this holds any weight considering the Biden regime allowed Lira to be tortured in prison (they easily could have saved his life with one phone call) and is actively pushing for Julian Assange's extradition.
