“Many people wonder why Alexei Navalny fought so hard and never gave up. He did it for the good of all those beautiful, courageous and honest people who today continue to fuel an endless queue to say goodbye to him ,” is the message launched in these hours by Yulia Navalnaya, the wife of the Russian dissident who died in prison, to thank the thousands of people who, three days after the funeral, continue to arrive at the grave in the Borisovsky cemetery for a final farewell to the activist.

In fact, at the site of Alexei Navalny's burial, a very long queue made up of people of all ages has continued uninterruptedly for days to pay homage to Putin's opponent who died suddenly while being held in prison on February 16th. A tribute that is sometimes represented by a simple greeting or the sign of the cross but which is often instead a floral tribute that has effectively transformed Navalny's tomb into a veritable mountain of flowers.

The video of the scene, with thousands of Russians waiting patiently in queues for hours in the cold along the streets on the outskirts of the Russian capital, was posted online on social media by Yulia Navalnaya herself. “An endless queue to say goodbye to him. Thank you . This is the true love of people” wrote Navalny's wife who had already dedicated a moving public memory to her husband as she was unable to attend the funeral. The video was shot by Navalny's team in Moscow whose spokeswoman commented: “There are no words. Thanks to everyone who will come.”

Meanwhile, a group of 43 countries has asked Moscow to allow an “independent and transparent” international investigation into the prison death of Alexei Navalny. The appeal, as reported by the Guardian, was launched by the European ambassador Lotte Knudsen to the UN Human Rights Council, on behalf of all 27 EU states and 16 other countries, including Canada, Great Britain, the United States and Ukraine. “We are outraged by Navalny's death; the ultimate responsibility lies with President Putin and the Russian authorities,” Knudsen said.
