Navalny Placed In Punitive Solitary Confinement For Seventh Time Since August

Imprisoned Russian opposition politician Aleksei Navalny has been placed in punitive solitary confinement for the seventh time since August for what he says are politically motivated reasons. In a statement that appeared on his Twitter account on November 1, Navalny said he was sent back to punitive confinement for 11 days for failing to properly sweep a yard and wrongly addressing a guard. Navalny's new punitive confinement comes six days after he served 14 days in the same confinement. To read the original story from RFE/RL's Russian Service, click here.
