    One of the people I admired. So sad to hear of his death. I had a hope that he would somehow magically get out of the mess that Putin put him in after poisoning him. :( 

    Here's the Wiki about him:

    Some quotes by him, provided by Brainy Quotes:

    I've always seen my campaigns against corruption as political work of a purer form than what opposition leaders usually do. All they do is hold roundtables and release political statements, which is all well and good. But there are concrete things that need to get done in order to achieve the basic goal of every opposition politician.


    Everyone says corruption is everywhere, but for me it seems strange to say that and then not try to put the people guilty of that corruption away.

    From an interview with CNN:

    "If they decide to kill me then it means we are incredibly strong and we need to use that power and not give up," he once told CNN. "We don't realise how strong we actually are."

    Rest in Peace Alexei. 💔

    RIP Alexie Navalny.  It takes courage to be the opposition against power.  Navalny, never had a chance after his imprisonment.  Praying for his family too.

    The more I read about Alexey Navalny, the more you learn his courage it took to stand up to the Kremlin's power.

    Alexey Navalny spent at least a decade standing up to the Kremlin when it seemed impossible. He was jailed and released. He was poisoned, and survived. He was warned to stay away from Russia and didn’t. He was arrested in front of dozens of cameras, with millions of people watching. In prison, he was defiant and consistently funny. For three years, his jailers put him in solitary confinement, cut off his access to and arrested his lawyers, piled on sentence after sentence, sent him all the way across the world’s largest country to serve out his time in the Arctic, and still, when he appeared on video in court, he laughed at his jailers. Year after year, he faced down the might of one of the world’s cruellest states and the vengeance of one of the world’s cruellest men. His promise was that he would outlive them and lead what he called the Beautiful Russia of the Future. On Friday, they killed him. He was forty-seven years old.
