OREANDA-NEWS Belgrade is under unprecedented pressure on the issue of relations with Moscow, and this is not related to anyone's deaths, said Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation.

Earlier, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, in an interview with Prva TV channel, said that the death of Alexei Navalny could complicate relations between Serbia and Russia, and he expects increased pressure on Belgrade.

"To be honest, I do not know the context of this statement, but the only thing we know for sure is that Belgrade is constantly under very strong pressure, and this is not related to anyone's deaths. This pressure is constantly being exerted, and the pressure is quite unprecedented," Peskov said, answering the question whether Moscow shares Vucic's concerns.

According to the Yamal department of the Federal Penitentiary Service, on February 16, after a walk, Navalny felt unwell, lost consciousness and died. According to preliminary data from an RT source, a blood clot broke off in the convict, the exact causes of death are being established. SUSK in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug organized a procedural check on this fact, all the circumstances of Navalny's death will be established.

As told to RIA Novosti in the Labytnang city hospital, the ambulance tried in vain to resuscitate Navalny for more than half an hour, and the way from the station to the patient took the brigade about nine minutes. A preliminary investigation has been launched into the incident.
Navalny was imprisoned after his suspended sentence in the Yves Rocher case was replaced by real imprisonment in 2021 due to violations of the probation regime. After several trials on other criminal articles, including the creation of an extremist community, fraud and contempt of court (insulting the judge who tried him for slandering a war veteran), the final sentence increased to 19 years, and the colony regime - to a special one.
