Alexei Navalny was taken away from IK-2 in Pokrov. Where exactly is unknown.

Employees of the Federal Penitentiary Service took Russian politician Alexei Navalny away from penal colony No. 2 in Pokrov, Vladimir Region, said Leonid Volkov , an ally of the opposition leader .

Alexei Navalny was taken away from IK-2. The lawyer who came to see him was kept at the checkpoint until 2:00 pm, and then they said: “There is no such convict.” We do not know where Alexei is now and to what colony he is being taken.

Navalny’s press secretary, Kira Yarmysh , said his lawyers and relatives were not informed of his transfer in advance. She noted that, according to rumors, they were going to transfer the politician to the strict regime colony IK-6 Melekhovo, but it is not known whether this is really the case. Mash writes that Navalny was transferred to IK-6, but this has not been officially confirmed.

“The problem with being transferred to another colony is not only that a strict regime colony is much worse,” Yarmysh said . – All the while, while we do not know where Alexey is, he remains alone with the system, which has already tried to kill him. So now the main task is to find him as soon as possible.

On March 22, a court sentenced Alexei Navalny to nine years in a strict regime colony on charges of fraud and contempt of court. On May 24, the Moscow City Court confirmed Navalny’s sentence. The prosecution alleged that the politician collected donations for the creation of anti-corruption investigations and for the presidential campaign for selfish purposes – and allegedly stole the collected money.

Alexei Navalny said in May that he could be transferred to the maximum security colony IK-6 in Melehovo in the Vladimir region. “My sentence has not yet entered into force, but the prisoners from the strict regime colony Melehovo write that they are equipping a “prison within a prison” for me,” Navalny said.
