"If Russia acts recklessly or aggressively as it did with the Solar Winds cyber intrusion... as it did with what it's done to Mr Navalny, then we will respond" US Secretary of State Antony Blinken talks to @JustinOnWeb  | #R4Today 

The lead lawyer defending the Russian opposition leader Aleksei A. Navalny in an extremism case that could outlaw Mr. Navalny’s opposition movement was arrested on Friday, the latest escalation by the Kremlin in its long-running campaign to stifle dissent.

In Opinion “Russia now has two national leaders: Mr. Putin in the Kremlin and Mr. Navalny in prison,” writes Oleg Kashin in a guest essay. Kashin, a Russian journalist based in London, has known Aleksei Navalny for close to two decades.

On Navalny's health, @jakejsullivan : "We have indicated both privately and publicly that there would of course be consequences if Mr. Navalny passed away." #AMRstaff 

“Russia now has two national leaders: Mr. Putin in the Kremlin and Mr. Navalny in prison,” writes @KSHN , who's known Navalny decades. “When we first met, such a future— if someone had beamed back from 2021 to tell us of it— would have seemed far-fetched.”

"When Mr. Putin agreed to allow Mr. Navalny’s evacuation to Germany for treatment, he in all likelihood felt sure that the man would not come back," writes @KSHN . "But Mr. Putin miscalculated."

"Russia now has two national leaders: Mr. Putin in the Kremlin and Mr. Navalny in prison," writes @KSHN . "When we first met, such a future — if someone had beamed back from 2021 to tell us of it — would have seemed far-fetched."

The move comes after Mr. Navalny, President Vladimir Putin’s most outspoken critic, ended a hunger strike last week that he had launched to demand proper medical treatment in prison.

“Mr. Putin’s system of governance is sometimes called a “soft authoritarian” approach because it allows open opposition and more internet freedoms than in China.” Russia Suspends Public Activity by Navalny’s Political Groups - The New York Times

"One cameraman, who worked on the investigations into graft with which Mr. Navalny shamed Mr Putin" -- such as the "Putin's Palace" film now viewed more than one million times -- "faces two years in prison for a tweet."

@nytimes  editorial: “Mr. Putin should understand that letting Mr. Navalny now perish in a labor camp would solidly confirm Mr. Putin as a ‘killer’” @PENamerican  @SalmanRushdie  @jk_rowling  @MargaretAtwood  @Kasparov63 

In Opinion "If Mr. Navalny dies, there is no question who should be held responsible, and the cost will be high," the editorial board writes.

National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan on CNN: “We have communicated [to Russia] that there will be consequences if Mr. Navalny dies.”

It is appalling that Alexey Navalny, the victim of a despicable crime, has been detained by Russian authorities. He must be immediately released. Rather than persecuting Mr Navalny Russia should explain how a chemical weapon came to be used on Russian soil.

BREAKING: Jen Psaki gives statement on Alexei Navalny: “We reiterate our call for the Russian government to immediately, unconditionally release Mr. Navalny.”

On Russia, @SecBlinken : "We're reviewing a series of Russian actions that are deeply, deeply disturbing. The actions taken against Mr. Navalny, including the apparent use of a chemical weapon against him, but also interference in our elections..." (1/3) #AMRstaff 

👉 “Mr. Navalny knew what awaited him, because he knows as well as the dissidents of the Soviet era knew that the one thing a corrupt and authoritarian regime cannot abide is the truth.”

Sergei Guriev, a friend of Alexei Navalny, claims Russian President Vladimir Putin is "afraid" that Mr Navalny could play a "very important role in democratisation in Russia". Latest on this story:

It takes extraordinary courage to be a Russian and oppose the criminal Putin regime. Litvinenko, Nemtsov, Politkovskaya, Kara-Murza, the Skripals, and now possibly Alexei Navalny. This is not how a civilized government acts. Wishing Mr. Navalny a speedy recovery.

Remember when Putin, in the name of "fighting corruption," jailed the brother of opposition leader Alexei Navalny? That's what Trump is proposing, a tactic of autocratic rule not democratic rule. Stop it, Mr. President. We are a nation OF laws, not one ruled BY law.
