Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny announced the end of the hunger strike. Navalny’s statement was posted on Instagram.
Navalny stressed that he did not remove the requirement to admit him to a doctor who could diagnose the cause of the loss of sensitivity in the hands and feet.
At the same time, taking into account the circumstances and progress in meeting his demands, the politician began to withdraw from the hunger strike. According to him, it will take the same 24 days that the hunger strike continued.
Navalny said that he was twice examined by a council of civilian doctors, that he was given research and analyzes, and he was given the results and conclusions.
One of the reasons for the end of the hunger strike, the politician called the doctors’ opinion about the danger to his life: “I will tell you frankly – their words that the tests show:” in the shortest time there will be no one to cure “… mmm … seem to me worthy of attention”, – he stated.
Navalny also noted that several people started a hunger strike as a sign of solidarity with him, and he would not want anyone to experience physical suffering because of him.
Navalny stressed that the end of the hunger strike is solely the merit of those who supported him, thanked everyone and promised not to let him down.
Navalny is in a hospital for prisoners on the territory of IK-3 in Vladimir.
