Four members of the Norwegian parliament (Storting) are taking part in a support campaign for Alexei Navalny and are asking for his immediate release from prison in Russia.

The four MPs are Michael Tetzschner (H), Petter Eide (SV), Ola Elvestuen (V), and Ingjerd Schou (H).

They agree with the demands from the Council of Europe, the EU, and international human rights organizations, which are requesting the immediate release of Alexei Navalny, the SmåRodina reports.

Alexei Navalny is among the fiercest critics of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

He was sentenced to prison in a penal colony for violating the terms of a previous conditional sentence when he was admitted to a hospital in Berlin after being poisoned with the neurotoxin novichok.

Navalny accused the Russian security services of being behind the poisoning, but Russian authorities rejected his claims.

The 44-year-old is said to have lost 9 kilos since he arrived at the prison about a month and a half ago. He went on a hunger strike at the end of March.

  1. Biden has us on the brink of a very nuclear World War 3 … for which civil defenses in the West are virtually nonexistent, except for the elites like them … and these 4 are yakking about Navalny who returned to Russia as foolishly as Sidney Reilly did in 1925.

    If they are serious, why aren’t they proposing a Navalny for Julian Assange exchange?

  2. My comment just posted on British Independent article about Navalny’s doctor saying he could die at any moment:

    So like Serbia’s Milosevic who was about to be acquitted by the International Criminal Tribunal for Yugoslavia, Navalny could die a (suspicious) “medical death” while in custody.

    Exactly like British intel agent Sidney Reilly in 1925 and for the same regime-change purpose, Navalny never should have gone back into Russia.

    Especially if British intelligence had anything to do with Navalny going back in too, Britain should offer a Julian Assange for Navalny exchange … as soon as possible.
