Amnesty International Re-Explained for Stripping Navalny of Prisoner of Conscience

A new statement was released by the human rights organization Amnesty International – it concerns the deprivation of politician Alexei Navalny of the status of a prisoner of conscience. Organization stressedthat this decision was not made under pressure or under the influence of propaganda. The report also rejected suggestions that people working on the agenda of the Russian authorities could be behind this.

The propaganda is recognizable, and the organization did not rely on information disseminated solely for the purpose of discrediting a politician, Amnesty said in a statement.

It also notes that the organization can hardly be suspected of “pandering to the Kremlin,” and Amnesty regrets that the revocation unintentionally distracted from the campaign for the immediate release of the unjustly persecuted politician.

At the same time, the human rights organization admitted that Navalny’s statements can be regarded as propaganda of violence, and this is contrary to the organization’s policy.

We will remind, earlier Amnesty International recognized Navalny as a prisoner of conscience after being detained at the airport, and recently deprived him of this status due to statements made in the 2000s.
