Jailed Putin critic Alexei Navalny goes on hunger strike over his inhuman treatment in hellhole Russian prison

And his lawyers warned last night that his life was in danger because he had vowed to refuse food unless he gets help.

Novichok poison victim Navalny, 44, was jailed for three-and-a-half years last month on “trumped up” charges of breaching probation conditions.

He was nearly killed by the nerve agent in an attack believed to have been personally ordered by ruthless strongman Putin last August.

Navlany sparked street protests by producing a video after his arrest, lifting the lid on an alleged £1billion “Putin Palace” complete with its own pole dancing club.

His exposé claims the strongman’s corrupt henchmen bought him the vast Black Sea retreat and has been viewed online more than 100 million times.

But his lawyers have warned his physical condition has collapsed since he was locked up – despite claims by prison chiefs that his health is “stable and satisfactory”.

Navalny wrote in a letter released yesterday: “I have the right to invite a doctor and to get medicine. I have been denied both.

“My back pain has now moved to my leg. Parts of my right leg and now my left leg are becoming numb.

“Instead of medical help, I am being tortured with a lack of sleep – they wake me up eight times per night. So what else can I do?

“I am announcing a hunger strike to demand that the law be obeyed and that a doctor of my choosing be allowed to visit me.”
