The US State Department has commented on Navalny’s verdict, calling the trial unjust

The US State Department has condemned the Moscow court’s verdict for Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny in the case of creating an “extremist community”.

Details: The US State Department called the decision of the Russian court “an unjust conclusion of an unjust process”.

“For years, the Kremlin has tried to silence Navalny and prevent his calls for transparency and accountability from reaching the Russian people. By conducting this latest trial in secrecy and restricting its lawyers’ access to alleged evidence, the Russian authorities once again illustrated both the groundlessness of their case and the lack of due process for those who dare to criticize the regime.”

The United States called for the immediate release of Navalny and other Russian political prisoners and an end to repression against independent voices in Russia.

On Friday, August 4, the Moscow court sentenced Navalny to an additional 19 years in prison in the so-called case of creating an “extremist community”. This is the first case related to his political activities. The articles of indictment included “financing extremism” and “rehabilitating Nazism”.
