THE Yulia Navalnayathe widow of the late Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny, who was unable to attend the funeral as were their children, paid tribute to her husband in X, thanking him for “26 years of absolute happiness”.

“I don't know how I will live without you, but I will try to do everything so that you up there are happy for me and proud of me. I don't know if I will succeed or not, but I will try. We will definitely meet sometime. I had so many stories to tell you that I didn't tell you, I have kept so many songs on my phone for you, silly and funny, generally to be honest, great songs, but they are songs for us and I wanted so much to give them to you you hear And I would really like to see you listen to them, laugh and then hug me. I love you forever. Rest in Peace. Yulia Navalnaya”.

Navalny's brother Oleg said goodbye to his brother with the following words:

“Sleep tight, brother, don't worry about anything.”

Oleg Navalny spent 3.5 years in prison for the Yves Rocher case (including 1.5 years in solitary confinement). In 2022 Oleg Navalny left Russia under the threat of new prosecutions against him. On February 20, 2024, he was included in the wanted list.

Thousands of supporters in the church

Thousands of Navalny supporters gathered at the church where the funeral service was held to pay their last respects.

The hearse carrying the coffin of the main opponent of Russian President Vladimir Putin arrived around 13:50 local time (12:50 Greek time) in front of the Church of the Icon of the Mother of God in Moscow, where it was applauded by the crowd, according to journalists AFP.

Among those waiting in line to pay their last respects to the deceased, some had tears in their eyes, while others held flowers.

Navalny “showed what freedom means,” said 43-year-old computer scientist Maxim, who also went to see off the opposition leader and, like the speech, asked not to be named.

Charity volunteer Dennis, 26, hailed a man who got him “interested in politics” in an increasingly authoritarian regime where youth disinterest in politics is stark.
