London: The most famous Russian opposition leader, Alexei Navalny, was suddenly transferred from a prison where he was serving 11-1 / 2 years in prison to a maximum security colony away from Moscow.

Navalny earned the admiration of the scattered opposition in 2021 for his voluntary return to Russia in 2021 from Germany, where he was treated for an attempt to poison him in Siberia with a Soviet-era nerve agent, according to Western laboratory studies.

Russia denies attempting to kill him.

His chief of staff, Leonid Volkov, said that when Navalny’s lawyer arrived at Correctional Facility No. 2, a camp in Pokrov, 119 km east of Moscow, on Tuesday, he was told: “There is no such convict here.”

“We don’t know where Alyaksei is now and what colony he is being taken to,” Volkau told Telegram.

But later an observer at the regional prison, Sergei Yazhan, said by phone that Navalny had been taken to the IC-6 penal colony in Melekhovo near Vladimir, about 250 km east of Moscow.

Yazhan is the chairman of the local public oversight commission, an organization tasked with protecting the rights of prisoners in every region of Russia and working closely with prison authorities.

Russia’s prison service could not be reached for comment.
