On the day of Navalny’s funeral, the police detained dozens of people all over Russia – what does this mean according to Eugene Korda |  World |  .a week

Russian police on Friday detained at least 57 people across the country who attended memorial services to honor the late opposition leader Alexei Navalny on the day of his funeral in Moscow. This was reported by the OVD-Info group monitoring the observance of human rights in Russia. TASR took over the report from the AFP news agency.

The most people – 14 of them – were detained in Novosibirsk, the organization said, citing the largest city in Siberia. She also added that six people were detained in Moscow, where large crowds of his supporters came to honor Navalny.

The widow of the politician Julija Navalna promised to continue her husband’s work.

Eugene Korda’s explanation

It was to be expected that the Russian security authorities would arrest people who came to honor the memory of the murdered Alexei Navalny on the orders of the “top brass”. And it happened. Despite the best efforts of the police, crowds of people came to honor him and showed great courage as they chanted slogans expressing their opposition to the war.

It turns out that not all Russians are bloodthirsty monsters. Even among them there are brave women and men who risk their freedom and imprisonment by simply shouting “no”. We should respect them for that and take an example from their civic attitude. The arrest at the funeral of Alexei Navalny is a clear message about the criminal nature of the state, to which some – and not only our – politicians submit.
