Russia’s opposition leader Alexei Navalny has said that he has been kept in a prison in the Vladimir region. The Kremlin critic has said that this prison is like a ‘concentration camp’. Navalny has given information about this through her Instagram account. The prison in the Vladimir region, to the northeast of the capital Moscow, is identified as a prison with tight control over prisoners. Let us know that Navalny has been given a sentence of more than two years.
At the same time, the exact location of Navalny is not known. His legal team said last week that Navalny was transferred from the nearby Kolchugino jail. Navalny was not told where she was being taken. Navalny posted a picture on Instagram, saying, I have to accept that the Russian prison system is capable of surprising me. In the picture posted by Navalny, it can be seen that she does not have hair on her head.
Navalny told how is the situation inside the ‘concentration camp’
Alexei Navalny further wrote in her post, I did not know that it is possible to arrange an actual ‘concentration camp’ 100 kilometers from Moscow. Navalny said that he is in panel colony number 2 in the city of Pokrov, Vladimir. He said, video cameras have been installed all around. Everyone is being monitored and it is reported if there is a slight violation of the rules. Navalny’s lawyer Olga Mikhailova confirmed that she was able to go to the colony and meet him.
Prisoners in jail do not behave like ordinary people
Earlier this month, Konstantin Kotov, an activist who spent two years in Vladimir’s prison, said that inmates in this prison are not treated like ordinary people. Kotov was arrested for breaking the rules of the demonstration. In early January, Navalny, a critic of the Kremlin, was arrested when he arrived in Moscow from Germany. After this, he was sentenced to more than two years in jail. At the same time, there were fierce protests in Russia to protest against the arrest of Navalny.
