A spokesperson for the Russian activist said on Monday that authorities are refusing to disclose his current whereabouts

Allies of Alexei Navalny say the imprisoned Russian opposition leader has been missing for days. 

On Monday, Navalny’s spokesperson ​​Kira Yarmysh wrote on X, formerly Twitter, that “the lawyers tried to get to IK-6 and IK-7 —  two [prison] colonies in the Vladimir region where Alexey 

[Navalny] might be. They have just been informed simultaneously in both colonies that he is not there. We still don’t know where Alexey is.” 

Yarmysh added in a separate post that Russian authorities had refused to disclose where Navalny had been transferred


Last year, Navalny was sentenced to nine years in prison on what are widely regarded as fabricated charges of corruption intended to silence his criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin. In August, an additional 19 years were added to his sentence. Prior to his imprisonment, Navalny survived at least two documented assassination attempts, once in 2017, and again in 2020.
