Sad that Russia is returning to its authoritarian, draconian past, but that is nothing new during the last few years with USA, China, Poland other super-powers being seduced by "strong-men" preffering authoritarianism to freedom :(

Didn't he say something something something election fraud? It's all good, he's just being censored for believing anything but "Russia had the cleanest and fairest election of all time". Good riddance. Don't worry, Joe Biden will ask Putin to keep that traitor locked up forever.

Just taking a stab in the dark with this one but I think Navalny will be liked in the prison. There are most certainly other political prisoners locked up, so this may lead to a sense of camaraderie between him and the others.

All those Russians in prison might not like their government. Looks like 3 years of recruiting if he survives.
