Police Blocked the Entrances to the Colony in Pokrov Before the Rally of Supporters of Navalny
OREANDA-NEWS. Russian traffic police officers blocked a section of the road leading to the correctional colony No. 2 in Pokrov (Vladimir region), where Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny is being held. This was announced on Tuesday, April 6, by the online media «Sota Vision» on Twitter.
As follows from this video, a traffic police car and at least two employees of this service blocked the entrances to the colony, near which Navalny's supporters — including doctors from the «Alliance of Doctors» trade union — plan to hold a rally with demands to provide the politician with qualified medical care.
You can only leave the territory of the colony. So, according to «Sota Vision», a woman who claimed, that she wanted to issue a transfer to Navalny was not allowed to go to the correctional institution. Law enforcement officers also offer to park in another place, since there are no free sites nearby.
Meanwhile, the team of the head of the «Alliance of Doctors» Anastasia Vasilyeva said, that she was going to Pokrov «not to protest», but to «save» Navalny. Earlier, the lawyer of the opposition leader Olga Mikhailova reported details about the condition of the politician, who began a hunger strike in protest against the non-admission of doctors to him. «He has a very strong cough, a fever. Naturally, given that he is starving, he is exhausted. He has already lost 13 kilograms in weight since his stay in the colony», Mikhailova said.
