In the aftermath of the mysterious death of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny in a Siberian prison, the Russian authorities have issued an arrest warrant for his brother, Oleg Navalny. The move comes as speculation surrounding Putin's alleged involvement in Navalny's demise continues to circulate in the media.

According to reports from TASS, a Russian media outlet close to the Moscow regime, the Russian Interior Ministry announced the arrest warrant for Oleg Navalny, stating that he is "wanted under an article of the Criminal Code." The authorities have added him to the list of individuals sought by the Russian government.

Oleg Navalny, who has faced criminal charges in the past, was previously put on the wanted list in 2022 for participating in a rally protesting his brother's arrest in 2021, where he was charged with violating coronavirus regulations. Initially sentenced to a one-year suspended jail term, Russian prison officials later sought to convert it to a year in prison, alleging parole meeting violations.

While Alexei Navalny's mother appeals to Putin for her son's body, Moscow, through TASS, labeled Oleg Navalny as "wanted under an article of the Criminal Code," without specifying the reasons behind the arrest warrant. Oleg, believed to be in exile, has previously found refuge, according to some reports, in Cyprus.

The circumstances surrounding Alexei Navalny's death remain under scrutiny, with international attention focused on the Russian government's actions and the ongoing targeting of Navalny's family members.
