Russia: Thousands of Navalny supporters continue to visit his grave, show of support continues

And days after russian opposition lawmaker Alexey Navalny was buried, thousands of people continue to visit his burial ground in Moscow to pay their respects. The visuals from the burial ground there they show quickly moving line of mourners stretched over around 500 meters outside the gate, with more people coming all the time.

Navalny died last month in very unclear circumstances in an arctic prison colony where he was serving a 19 year prison sentence for extremism. A major show of support continues in Moscow after his death.

The pain is unbearable, On the first day when he was buried, my body just couldn’t cope, and I couldn’t come purely for human reasons. But today I got some strength. And that is why to pay my respects, to honor, to bow before a brave man with whom our hopes were connected for a better future, for fighting corruption, for fair courts.
