I was thrilled to see that the documentary about Alexei Navalny won the Oscar. It will bring more attention to his unjust imprisonment by a dictatorship. I hope everyone gets to see this film. His family was there to share the award.
The KGB tried to poison him but failed. He was saved in a German hospital. He could have stayed out of Russia and remained free.
But he returned , knowing that Putin would lock him up for years. He is now in a remote prison camp, in solitary confinement.
But not forgotten.
Let’s hope this recognition bolsters his spirit.
