Alexey Navalny’s mother was shown a medical report about his death, which said that he “died from natural causes,” reports Navalny’s press secretary Kira Yarmysh.

Speaking to independent outlet Agenstvo, Yarmysh said that an autopsy had been performed and that there was “a medical certificate with the cause.” She added that the investigators want “to handle it themselves, want the burial to be done in secret, in a remote location, without a public farewell.”

Navalny’s mother Lyudmila recorded a video, in which she said that investigators showed her Navalny’s body. She added that investigators are demanding that Navalny be buried in secret and are threatening to “do something” with his body if she refuses.

The investigators claim to know the cause of death. They have all the medical and legal documents ready, which I saw, and I signed the death certificate. By law, they were supposed to hand over Alexey’s body to me immediately, but they haven’t done so yet. Instead, they are blackmailing me and imposing conditions on where, when, and how Alexey should be buried.
