🙋 46th Weekly protest

Embassy of Russia, 📍 Rua Visconde de Santarém 69, Lisboa

On Friday, the world was shocked by the news of Alexei Navalny's death in a Russian colony.

He was the most prominent figure among the Russian opposition, and his example of unbreakable will inspired millions of Russians.

His weekly broadcasts "Russia of the Future" gave hope for changes in the country. After another raid by the KGB's successors to destroy the studio from which this program was broadcast, the following happened: we, its viewers, donated for new equipment, Navalny's team quickly restored the studio, and the broadcasts and their investigations against the criminal authority continued. Like a Phoenix.

We have already survived Navalny's death due to poisoning with chemical weapons in 2020. Then, he literally rose from the dead. Thanks to the airplane pilot, who realized in time that it was poisoning and landed the plane. Thanks to the team of doctors, who identified the type of poison by external signs and took the right measures. Thanks to his wife, his team, his supporters, and the global community, he was snatched from the regime's claws. Then, he returned to us. And he avenged his killers by exposing them. Like a Phoenix.

By demonstratively killing his opponents, Putin tries to intimidate millions of Russians. However, Navalny himself said what to do if he is killed:

"Do not give up!.. Remember, we are a huge force, which is under the oppression of these bad guys only because we cannot realize how strong we actually are."

Putin continues to kill those who disagree with him due to impunity. To stop this, resistance to the regime must grow. To ensure Alexei's sacrifice was not in vain, it is necessary to make it so that by killing one Navalny, Putin in response gets millions of Navalnys, and each of them fights back with all they can. Like a Phoenix. A very angry Phoenix.

Hundreds of political prisoners, essentially hostages, are in the clutches of the terrorist regime in Russia. Their number increases every day. Is there a possibility to return some of them back as active fighters against the regime through exchange? Previously, someone might have said that they would serve their time and be released. Now, even for optimists, it is clear that they will stay in prison until Putin is arrested or destroyed. And the sooner we achieve this, the fewer people he will manage to kill.

In many dictatorial countries right now, people are fighting for freedom and asking for help. Dictators convince that this is their internal matter. Today, it is clear to everyone that these are issues of global security. The main battle against Putinism is currently happening in Ukraine. And the best response of the global community would be to provide all the necessary weapons for Ukraine's victory.

Alexei was a symbol of freedom. You may consider him your candidate or not, but the fact that he ended up in prison for the truth, for our freedom with you, is undeniable. His legacy is the future of Russia. And it is up to us to decide what it will be.

Russia will be free!
