Russian Opposition Leader Alexei Navalny Is Ending His Hunger Strike
On Wednesday, Russians took to the streets demanding Navalny be released. They turned out in cities large and small, from the Pacific Ocean to the Baltic Sea, despite the risk of arrest and police beatings. Outside Russia, President Biden, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron all expressed concern for Navalny’s health. Political analyst Tatiana Stanovaya says President Putin was wrong if he thought he could simply lock Navalny away.
