The funeral ceremony for Alexei Navalny will take place on Friday in the Church of the Icon of the Mother of God in Maryeno, southeast of Moscow, and his body will be buried in the Borisovskoe cemetery. Her spokeswoman, Kira Yarmysh, said this. The funeral service for Alexei – writes in X Kira Yarmysh – will take place at the church of the Icon of the Mother of God in Maryino on March 1 at 2 pm. Arrive early. Burial will take place in the Borosivskoe cemetery.”

“The funeral will take place the day after tomorrow and I still don't know if it will be peaceful or if the police will arrest those who came to say goodbye to Alexei,” said his widow Yulia Navalnaya speaking to the plenary of the European Chamber. “I thought that in the 12 days since Alexei's death I would have had time to prepare this speech – he explained – But first we spent a week collecting Alexei's body and organizing the funeral. Then I chose the cemetery and the coffin”.

Yulia Navalnaya: “Putin killed my husband. He is a bloodthirsty mafioso”

A long round of applause from the standing MEPs welcomed the entry into the Chamber of Yulia Navalnaya, invited to speak at the European Parliament by President Roberta Mestsola, three years after her last appearance when she came to collect the 2021 Sakharov Prize awarded to her husband, the time in prison in Russia.

“Many have the feeling that Putin cannot be defeated – he said in his speech in the chamber – And in this desperation they ask me: how can I help you? I'm thinking about how Alexei would answer this question. I will try to answer, but to do so I have to tell you a bit like him. Alexei was an inventor. He always had new ideas for everything, but especially for politics.”

“Putin must answer for what he did to my country. Putin must answer for what he did to a neighboring, peaceful country. And Putin must answer for everything he did to Alexei. My husband will not see what beautiful Russia will be like of the future, but we must see it. And I will do my best so that her dream comes true, so that evil falls and this beautiful future arrives”, continued the widow of the Kremlin opponent.

Putin killed my husband, Alexei Navalny. On his orders, Alexei was tortured for three years: he was starved to death in a tiny concrete cell, cut off from the outside world. He was denied visits, phone calls and even letters. And then they killed him and even after that they abused his body and abused his mother,” Navalny's widow chanted.

“You are not dealing with a politician, but with a bloodthirsty mafioso. Putin is the head of an organized criminal gang. This includes poisoners and murderers, but they are all just puppets. The most important thing is the people close to Putin, the his friends, his collaborators and the custodians of the mafia's money”, added Yulia Navalnaya according to whom “we must adopt the methods of fighting crime. Not diplomatic notes, but investigations. Not declarations of concerns, but a search for the associates of the mafia in your countries” “In this fight” against Vladimir Putin, he reiterated, “you have reliable allies: there are tens of millions of Russians who are against Putin, against the war, against the evil he brings. You must not persecute them – on the contrary, you must work with them . With us”.

“If you really want to defeat Putin, you have to stop being boring. You cannot hit Putin with another resolution or another set of sanctions that are no different from the previous ones. You cannot defeat him by thinking that he is a man of principles who has morals and rules. It's not like that, and Alexei understood this a long time ago,” he underlined.

“There will be elections at the beginning of June – he continued – Many of you will be campaigning, meeting voters, giving interviews, shooting commercials. Now imagine that all this is impossible. No TV station will give you an interview. No money in the world can help you with a commercial. All voters who showed up at the meetings will be arrested together with the candidate. Welcome to Putin's Russia. Yet Alexei Navalny managed to become the most famous politician in the country. He managed to inspire millions of people with his ideas. And how did he do it? He used his imagination”, underlined Navalnaya.
