Kremlin spy and ex-convict sent to humiliate Navalny in prison


MOSCOW – The jailed opposition leader in Russia, Aleksey Navalny, is on a hunger strike in a notorious penal colony. He says he suffers from back pain as the prison guards “torture” him by waking him every hour at night. Independent prison monitors have desperately sought to monitor him, with hundreds of Russian public figures sending open letters and petitions to authorities, calling for an end to the humiliating treatment. On Friday, human rights activists addressed the Kremlin more frankly: “He is slowly being killed. ”
The answer? Instead of sending an independent human rights observer or doctor to visit Navalny in prison, the Kremlin sent Maria Butina, a Russian spy and former American detainee. Now a pro-Kremlin activist, Butina pleaded guilty in U.S. court in 2018 to acting as a Russian agent while infiltrating NRA and Republican Party political circles.
