This is Navalny’s first news in nearly three weeks.
“His condition is somewhat normal. The recovery process is already underway,” Ivan Zhdanov, director of the Navalny Organization, the Anti-Corruption Fund, confirmed on Echo Moscow Radio.
Zhdanov responded after Russian prison authorities indicated that the Russian opponent’s conditions were satisfactory.
“His health has somehow returned to normal,” Alexander Kalashnikov, director of Russian prison services, told the TASS news agency. “He actually weighs 82 kilograms.”
“He eats normally and can communicate with his family,” he added.
According to Zhdanov, lawyers visit Navalny “almost every day”.
The Russian opponent was last seen in late April, when he appeared on a video conference at the court.
Navalny used to be on social media to be present on this media for the last time on May 2, claiming that he was “in the first half” of the end of his hunger strike, so that he could eat “a few spoons of oats”.
Alexei Navalny, the Kremlin’s main opponent, is currently serving a two-and-a-half-year prison sentence in a prison about 100 kilometers east of Moscow.
The 44-year-old Russian, who weighed 93 kilograms when he arrived at the prison in March, decided to go on hunger strike to protest the ill treatment he saw as a victim and his lack of examination by independent doctors despite his problems. the health.
His condition was considered alarming because he survived serious poisoning in August 2020, which the Kremlin is accused of committing.
In mid-April, his wife Julia Navalnaya indicated that the opponent weighed 76 kg. The opponent ended his strike on April 23 after consulting doctors at a civilian hospital.
The authorities took the first steps this week to exclude Navalny’s supporters from the upcoming legislative elections, and to classify their organizations as “extremists”, which could lead to severe prison sentences for their collaborators.
As a result of Navalny’s poisoning and imprisonment, European and American governments adopted sanctions against Russia. Among those targeted by the Russian authorities is Director of Prisons, Alexander Kalashnikov.
