Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalni, who has been in prison for a long time, has not been heard from for a long time. It turned out that Navalni was transferred to a prison in the Arctic region, exactly 2 thousand kilometers away from Moscow.

Since December 6, he had not been heard from. It turned out that he was transferred to a prison in Siberia.

Russian opposition leader Navalni was sent to the Arctic region, his spokesperson announced. "We found Alexei Navalni, he is now in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Region," the spokesperson said, adding that his lawyer visited Navalni and that the opposition politician was in good condition.

The Kharp region, home to about 5,000 people, is located above the Arctic Circle.

Ivan Zhdanov, who runs the Anti-Corruption Foundation founded by Navalny, said the region was "one of the northernmost, most remote penal colonies".

A penal colony is often used to describe an island or remote territory where exiled prisoners are sent.

According to Zhdanov, the Kremlin regime aims to isolate Navalny ahead of elections in March. Navalny was not heard from for a long time, suggesting a possible prison transfer by rail, which took weeks.

On his verified social media account, Navalni stated that he lives inside the Arctic Circle and compared himself to Santa Claus.
