Alexei Navalny sends appeal from detention center

Politician Alexei Navalny, who was sent to the Matrosskaya Tishina pre-trial detention center for 30 days, has sent out a petition. It was published on Navalny’s Instagram.

Opposition leader Alexei Navalny thanked viewers of the film “Palace for Putin. The story of the biggest bribe.” He said that he expected 25 million views and was happy when his lawyer told him that it had reached 40 million. At the moment, the video has almost 58 million views.

Separately, the politician expressed “respect for the schoolchildren who have made, in the lawyer’s words, ‘mayhem in Tik Tok”.

Navalny stressed that he has no plans to commit suicide.

“My plans do not include hanging myself from a window grate, or cutting open my own veins or throat with a sharpened spoon. I walk up and down the stairs very carefully. My blood pressure is measured every day – it’s like that of an astronaut, and a sudden heart attack is out of the question”.

I don’t drink moonshine and eat too many rafaello sweets. My psycho-emotional state is completely stable,” said Navalny.

The text of the address is accompanied by a video with unsuccessful takes made during the filming of “Palace for Putin”.
