Navalny, funeral “in secret”. The mother confesses: “If I don’t consent…”

There is still mystery surrounding the death of Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s opponent who stopped living almost a week ago in the penal colony in the Arctic region where he was detained. According to the Times, the bruises found on the opposition leader’s body are consistent with a “single punch” to the heart, a technique once taught to KGB special forces agents. But how is the story evolving? “Alexei’s mother saw her son’s body, but it was not returned to her.” This was announced by the dissident Navalny’s spokeswoman, Kira Yarmish, on social media. “On the contrary, she is being blackmailed. On orders from the Kremlin, investigators impose conditions on where, when and how to bury Alexei. They want to do it secretly, without allowing her to say goodbye to him”, denounces Yarmish, who publishes a video of Navalny’s mother, Lyudmila Navalnaya, who tells what happened.

“The medical report on Alexei Navalny’s death shown to his mother states that the causes of death are natural.” This was reported on X by the spokeswoman for the Russian opponent who died last Friday, Kyra Yarmish. And the mother directly intervenes in the desire of the Russian authorities to bury the dissident in secret. The woman claims that they are “blackmailing” her and that they are “specifying conditions about where, when and how he should be buried”. “Looking me in the eyes, they said that if I didn’t agree to a secret funeral, they would do something with my son’s body,” adds Navalny’s mother in a video published on X. “The investigators said that the cause of death is known and that they have all medical and legal documents”, he concludes.
