Convicted politician Alexey Navalny was transferred to a hospital in the regional hospital for convicts. It is located on the territory of correctional colony № 3 in Vladimir.
According to the website of the Vladimir Region Federal Penitentiary Service, the hospital “specializes in the dynamic observation of such patients”.
The press service of the department adds that at present Navalny’s state of health is assessed as satisfactory. He is being examined daily by a physician. The opposition leader was prescribed vitamin therapy.
Recall that on March 31, Navalny, who was in penal colony No. 2 in Pokrov, began a hunger strike because of the denial of medical care. The politician complained of back and leg pain.
On April 16, a letter was sent to the Federal Penitentiary Service urging it to urgently begin treatment of Navalny. According to the doctors treating the politician, he was developing renal failure, which in the future could lead to serious pathology of the cardiovascular system up to cardiac arrest.
