Navalny’s campaign against corruption in the Russian government has attracted the world’s attention.
The letter to Putin reads:
“As we write, Alexei Navalny is being held in a penal colony which many lawyers and human rights advocates consider to be one of the harshest in Russia. As reported worldwide, her health is deteriorating and they Are in critical condition and require immediate medical attention
Alexey Navalny is exhibiting symptoms of a severe neurological disorder – persistent back pain and loss of sensation in his legs and hands. In addition, he suffers from a severe cough and fever. As a Russian citizen, he has the legal right to be examined and treated by a doctor of his choice. Being denied this right, on 30 March they started a hunger strike in protest. We call you, Mr. President, to ensure that Alexei Navalny is given the immediate medical treatment and care that he urgently needs – and is entitled to under Russian law. As someone is sworn to uphold the law, you only have to do so. “
