Kremlin doubter Alexei Navalny quipped that “every little thing is fine” and made jokes regarding prison life Wednesday as he sent his initial message from a detention center outside Moscow.
In the message published on Instagram, President Vladimir Putin’s most popular critic stated he was being kept in the Kolchugino detention center in the Vladimir region northeast of Moscow.
” But everything is fine with me, there’s even a chin-up bar in the exercise lawn below,” he claimed.
Navalny was sentenced last month to 2 as well as a half years in a penal swarm for breaching parole terms while in Germany recuperating from a poisoning strike.
His message was posted after his support group saw him in the Kolchugino jail, where he is under quarantine.
Among his lawyers, Olga Mikhailova, stated he was expected to be held there up until his sentence entered into force which he was in an excellent mood.
” He’s feeling well,” Mikhailova told AFP, adding that Navalny was sharing a cell with 2 individuals.
“The cell has absolutely nothing other than a TV,” she claimed, adding that he can not receive letters or get anything behind bars.
Mikhailova claimed it was not yet clear where Navalny would eventually be offering out his full sentence.
A Moscow official had previously stated it would go to a prison in the town of Pokrov in the Vladimir region called Penal Colony No. 2.
In the light-hearted message, Navalny stated he was not familiar with what was happening on the planet and also has not yet managed to get any kind of publications from the prison collection.
” That’s why the only enjoyment is nouvelle cuisine experiments,” he stated, adding he and his cellmates were drying bread to make croutons.
