A Moscow court has issued an arrest warrant for Yulia Navalnaya

A Moscow court on Tuesday ordered the arrest of Yulia Navalnaya, the wife of late Russian oppositionist Alexei Navalny.

“Yulia Borisovna Navalna evaded the preliminary investigation and was therefore placed on the wanted list. The court accepted the request of the investigators and chose a preventive measure for her in the form of a two-month prison sentence,” the press service of the court in Moscow said in a message on Telegram.

Navalnaya is currently in exile. The court ruling means that if she crosses the Russian border, she could be arrested and detained.

Arrest warrant for Yulia Navalnaya

Yulia Navalnaya was accused of participating in an “extremist organization”.

“Vladimir Putin is a murderer and a war criminal. His place is in prison, not somewhere in The Hague, in a cozy cell with a TV, but in Russia, in the same penal colony and the same two-by-three-meter cell where he murdered Alexei,” Navalna wrote on social media.

A few days ago, Yulia Navalnaya became the chair of the American Foundation for Human Rights, replacing former world chess champion and Vladimir Putin critic Garry Kasparov.

She repeatedly announced that she would continue her late husband’s struggle against the Kremlin authorities.

Russia. Death of Alexei Navalny

On February 16, the world was informed that Russian opposition political prisoner Alexei Navalny had died in a penal colony in Russia. A statement from the Penitentiary Service of the Russian Federation said that Navalny “felt bad after the walk” and “almost immediately lost consciousness.” Medics called to the scene were unable to save him.

Navalny was held in penal colony No. 3 in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug in northern Russia. He served 19 years in prison for criminal cases brought against him by the authorities in Moscow. The funeral ceremonies of the Russian opposition leader took place in Moscow on March 1.
