Russia – Situation of Alexei Navalny (15 December 2023)


The fact that we have had no news for the past several days about the situation of imprisoned political opposition leader Alexei Navalny is very troubling, given that his health has sharply deteriorated since his imprisonment.

France holds Russia responsible for the health of its detainees, especially political prisoners, and reminds Russia of is international obligations with regard to human rights.

We call on Russia to release all political prisoners immediately and unconditionally, and to end all legal proceedings against them.
