Navalny announces start of hunger strike over prison treatment

Jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has announced that he has gone on hunger strike until he receives proper medical treatment for severe back pain and numbness in his legs. Navalny added that instead of receiving medical treatment he is continuing to be ’tortured with sleep deprivation.’ He is currently serving a 2.5-year prison sentence in one of Russia’s most notorious penal colonies.

I think if I were the Kremlin this is exactly what I would hope for. They would be investigated if he died in any other way. If he says he's going on a hunger strike and then dies, no questions asked, and they got rid of him. I don't know that his death, if self inflicted is going to cause as much of an uproar as he might be expecting. I have a hard time seeing the Kremlin giving in on this one. Just my thoughts.

Navalny's criticism of the Kremlin is that it's too soft and that it needs to be tougher and stricter than it is currently. Navalny is NOT a nice guy at all.
