Yulia Navalnaya has accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of killing her husband, Alexey Navalny, and pledged to continue the late opposition leader’s fight for a “free Russia”. In an emotional, and often laced with rage video message, the wife of the deceased leader of the opposition called on her late husband’s supporters to battle President Vladimir Putin with greater fury than ever.

“I want to live in a free Russia, I want to build a free Russia,” Navalnaya said in the video message entitled “I will continue the work of Alexei Navalny”. “I urge you to stand next to me,” she said and added, “I ask you to share the rage with me. Rage, anger, hatred towards those who dared to kill our future.”

“Vladimir Putin killed my husband,” Navalnaya said. “By killing Alexei, Putin killed half of me – half of my heart and half of my soul.” She said she knew “exactly why” Alexei was killed three days ago and added that she would release this information soon. The Kremlin has denied involvement in his death and said that Western claims that Putin was responsible for the death were unacceptable.

It was unclear where she was speaking from, but she was not in Russia. Navalnaya was due to attend a meeting of European Union foreign ministers in Brussels on Monday which was considering imposing further sanctions on Russia over her husband’s death.

47-year-old Alexei Navalny, one of Russia’s most significant opposition figures, had been in jail on charges widely viewed as politically motivated. He died at a remote Arctic prison on Friday. Authorities say he suffered “sudden death syndrome”.
