"The freedom to express dissenting views, be it on the structure or administration of society, is a fundamental tenet of a democracy and any accountable system.

The incarceration of Alexei Navalny contradicted this.

It is important that all of those who believe in these principles support the making available of all of the facts surrounding Alexei Navalny's reported death."
