Alexey Navalny has arrived in penal colony number 2 in Pokrov, in central Russia’s Vladimir Region, human rights activist Ruslan Vakhapov, who specializes in defending prisoners’ rights, told.
Axar.az reports that this was reported by Russian media.
"According to my information, Navalny has been recently taken to IK-2 in Pokrov. The reports about his arrival in this correctional facility were circulated among the penal colony’s inmates," Vakhapov said. In his words, Navalny’s arrival in this penal colony can be only confirmed after his lawyers’ visit.
"This will finally take all issues on Navalny’s imprisonment there off the table," he said. According to him, Navalny could be later transferred to another penal colony.
Earlier reports said that Navalny had been taken to the Vladimir Region on Friday. Yeva Merkacheva from Moscow’s Public Oversight Commission said Navalny would be sent to the IK-2 colony in Pokrov, to the east of Moscow.
