Yulia Navalnaya, the widow of Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny, has cast her ballot in Russia’s presidential election at the Russian Embassy in Berlin.

Before voting, Navalnaya waited outside the building for six hours in a line several blocks long.

“You’re probably curious what I wrote on my ballot, who I voted for. Of course I wrote in the name ’Navalny.’ Because it can’t be true, that Putin’s main opponent, already in prison, was killed one month before the election,” Navalnaya told journalists when she came out of the embassy.
