MOSCOW — Jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has been moved to a prison sick ward with symptoms of a respiratory illness, alarming supporters, who say he is being denied proper medical care and is being "slowly killed."

Navalny, 44, was tested for the coronavirus Monday after exhibiting symptoms of a respiratory illness, the federal prison service told Izvestia, a pro-Kremlin newspaper. Earlier, in an Instagram post under his name, Navalny said he had a high temperature and a cough, adding that three people from his prison ward had been hospitalized with tuberculosis.

Navalny declared a hunger strike last week, demanding proper medical care for his severe back pain and leg numbness. Navalny’s attorney, Olga Mikhailova, told the independent Dozhd TV on Monday that he has lost 13 kilograms (nearly 29 pounds) in three weeks.

Navalny joked darkly on Instagram: “If I have tuberculosis, then maybe it will banish back pain and numbness in my legs. That would be great.”

“I continue my hunger strike, of course,” he added. “I have a right guaranteed by law to invite a specialist doctor at my own expense. I will not give it up, and prison doctors can be trusted just as much as state TV.”

3. I obviously do not have his courage because I would have never gone back to that country.

Not while Putin was still there.

4. The outcome here was inevitable, sadly

It's frustrating that the rest of the world can do nothing to stop it.

8. He's already a martyr even if he isn't dead yet...

He's in prison for not dying from assassination attempts, of course he is going to be murdered there, one way or another.
