Julia Navalnaya: 'Putin killed my husband, I will continue the work for Alexei'

The collaborators of Alexei Navalny , the opponent of Vladimir Putin who died in recent days in a prison in the far north of Russia, have announced that the authorities have denied the dissident's family access to his body for the third consecutive day. The Kremlin replies that it has no competence on the issue and also rejects what it calls 'coarse statements' by Western countries. The dissident's widow emphasizes that she will continue her husband's work.

“Alexei's mother and his lawyers arrived at the morgue early this morning. They were not allowed to enter. One of the lawyers was literally pushed out. When the staff was asked if Alexei's body was there, they did not responded”: Navalny's spokeswoman Kira Yarmysh announced on social media. The latter also reported that the Russian authorities' investigation into Navalny's death “has been extended”, according to what investigators told the mother of the dissident who died last Friday. “It is unknown how long this will go on. The cause of death is still 'undetermined'. They lie, take time and don't even hide it,” Kira Yarmysh wrote on X.

And the Kremlin has made it known that the investigation is still ongoing and for the moment there are no results. In this regard, he called “crude” statements by Western countries about Navalny's death inadmissible until the results of the investigation are made public. The spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said this, quoted by Russian agencies. “In conditions in which there is no information, it is absolutely unacceptable to make, let's say, frankly crude statements,” Peskov said, according to Tass. “This is not appropriate for government officials, from whose lips we heard such phrases. And these phrases, of course, cannot cause any harm to the head of our state, but they absolutely do not give a good image of those who make such statements,” Putin's spokesperson further stated.
