Russian court orders arrest of Yulia Navalnaya on extremism charges | World News | Sky News


Since her husband’s death, Mrs Navalnaya has vowed to continue his work and fight against the Russian regime under Vladimir Putin.

Following her arrest warrant, Mrs Navalnaya remained defiant of the Russian regime, writing on social media platform X: “When you write about this, please don’t forget to write the main thing: Vladimir Putin is a murderer and a war criminal.
“His place is in prison, and not somewhere in The Hague, in a cosy cell with a TV, but in Russia – in the same (penal) colony and the same 2×3 metre cell in which he killed Alexei.”
In April two Russian journalists, Konstantin Gabov and Sergey Karelin, were arrested on “extremism” charges, accused of preparing materials for a YouTube channel run by Navalny’s Foundation for Fighting Corruption, which has been outlawed by Russian authorities.
The Kremlin has always strongly denied accusations by Mrs Navalnaya that the Russian president had the opposition leader killed, and has made limited comments on the public response to his death.
