Alexei Navalny died in an Arctic prison last week.

Rome:

G7 leaders on Saturday called on Russia to “fully clarify” how Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny ended up dying in prison last week.

Their statement came hours after a spokesperson for Mr. Navalny’s team announced that Russian authorities had finally handed over Mr. Navalny’s body to his mother after he died in an Arctic prison colony.

“We call on the Russian government to fully clarify the circumstances surrounding his death,” it said in a statement.

“We also pay tribute to the extraordinary courage of Mr. Alexei Navalny and our thoughts are with his wife, children and loved ones,” it added.

“He fought corruption in the Kremlin and sacrificed his life for free and fair elections in Russia.”
