    Alexi Navalny, an outspoken critic of President Putin has died in the discomfort of a prison inside the Arctic Circle.

    There is a global suspicion that he has died of something other than natural causes, though it does seem that many opponents of Putin have a shortened life expectancy.

    One imagines in any of our liberal democratic states the regular death of opponents would have been highlighted by many Church Leaders as unacceptable.

    I know the article is a bit long, but it is a lot shorter than the Gulag Archipelago, and it is a powerful insight.

    Thank you for the article. I count myself among those who 100% believe that his death was...hastened...by people answering to Putin.

    Sadly, questionable political deaths occur in many nations of this world in which we live. I pray for this world and its people.
