Extremism or Activism? The Thin Line in Putin’s Russia

AFP-Yonhap News

According to reports by foreign media outlets including the Financial Times (FT) on Tuesday, a court in Moscow has issued an arrest warrant for Yulia Navalnaya, the widow of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny on charges of extremism.

The Basmanny District Court in Moscow named Navalnaya as an “extremist” for her involvement in an extremist society and issued an arrest warrant, placing her name on the international wanted list.

The court stated in a statement, “We are accepting the investigation request and will impose a restrictive measure in the form of a two-month detention period,” adding, “This period will be calculated from the time she is extradited from Russia or from the time she is detained within the territory of the Russian Federation.”

Navalnaya has been leading the anti-corruption foundation based overseas to continue her husband’s legacy since Navalny died in February in an Arctic Circle jail.

Navalny was a prominent figure who exposed the corruption of high-ranking Russian officials, including President Vladimir Putin. He was seen as a political adversary of Putin. The anti-corruption foundation led by Navalny was designated as an extremist organization in Russia in 2021, with many having been imprisoned on charges of supporting or cooperating with this organization.

Navalnaya, who is currently living abroad, expressed her position to her supporters through her X account on the day, stating, “Putin is a murderer and a criminal. He belongs in prison.”
