Deal to exchange Navalny was in ‘final stage’ before his death: ally

Unknown (AFP) – A member of the team of late Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny says that a deal to free him as part of a prisoner swap had nearly been reached when he died in prison. The 47-year-old critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin died on 16 February in opaque circumstances after spending more than three years behind bars, prompting outrage and condemnation from Western leaders and his supporters.
