After the beginning of the Russian war in Ukraine, Guzmán refused to do this Putin. he was outside. In May, he announced that he is a foreign agent in Russia. He returned to Russia in June. He said it was not a political step but a moral one. He is now behind bars for writing in October 2020 that Stalin was worse than Hitler.

Guzman said on his personal Facebook page at the time: “Hitler is an absolute evil, but Stalin is worse. The SS were criminals, but the NKVD was even more terrible because the Chechens killed their own people. Hitler started a war on humanity. The Communists declared total war on their peoples ” .

He received 15 days in prison for these words in August of this year. However, the 2020 text was condemned by a law passed in 2021.

From prison, Guzmán said that if he is not imprisoned again, he is ready to emigrate with his wife. After the end of his sentence, he walked out of the prison gates and was immediately detained by the police. He was given an extra 15 days for a similar claim from 2013.

Guzmán has a medical certificate that he cannot be imprisoned for health reasons. The judge who sent him behind bars only said that Guzmán was recently taken to the hospital, so he is in good health.

Now the two Russians are looking into each other’s eyes

Alexei Navalny is in prison for a long time. He was recently tortured. He is constantly sent to solitary confinement. He withdrew his right to pass letters through a lawyer. The prison leadership will now check anything that comes from Navalny for three days before issuing a verdict.

Latest reports indicate that Navalny does not see his lawyer anymore, as he is only allowed to speak to him from behind an inconspicuous barrier.

In addition, other prisoners were forbidden not only to talk to Navalny, but even to look at him. If he is to be escorted inside the prison, three bells are sounded, which means that inmates who might catch a glimpse of him must immediately face the wall.

People in the Czech Republic often question the source of the barbaric contempt for law and human life that accompanies the actions of Putin’s aides. However, it is a continuation of the tradition.

When, in the second half of the 1950s, Nikita Khrushchev ordered the release of prisoners who were thrown there under Stalin, the Russian poet Anna Akhmatova said: “Now the Russians look into each other’s eyes. Who sat and who closed.

There was indeed a clash, symbolically speaking, between the guards and the prisoners. Bashar eventually won. The prisoners either went into hiding or emigrated.

Years later, this engagement was repeated. Today, however, the descendants of bachelors have unlimited power over the descendants of captives.
