The European Union has demanded to all an independent international investigation into the death of Alexei Navalny.

The Kremlin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov has dismiss the EU’s call flowing the suspicious death of Valdimir Putin’s main political opponent, Russian state-controlled news agency RIA Novosti reported.

It has been said that Navalny was murdered under the orders of Putin at the maximum security prison in the town of Kharp which is near to the Arctic Circle.

On Monday the EU’s High Representative Josep Borrell said that “Russia must allow an independent and transparent international investigation into circumstances of his (Navalny’s) sudden death.”

Borrell call on Russia to “immediately and unconditionally” release all political prisoners from the penal colony.

“We do not consider such demands at all, especially from Mr. Borrell,” Peskov said at a press conference, as cited by RIA Novosti.

Navalny’s mother Lyudmila Navalnaya has appealed for the authorities to release her son’s body, a family friend has said.

Writing on Telegram, Ivan Zhdanov said, “In addition, today a lawsuit was filed in court in Salekhard about the inaction of the investigative committee to release Alexei’s body.”

Navalny’s wife Yulia Navalnaya said on Tuesday that she wants her husband’s body returned to allow him to be “buried with dignity.”

She said on X, “Give back Alexei’s body and let him be buried with dignity.”

Navalnaya added that she does not care how the killer’s press secretary comments on my words” and urged the Kremlin: “Don’t stop people from saying goodbye to him.”

On Monday evening Navalnaya accused the Kremlin of poisoning Navalny with the nerve agent Novichok, which is favoured by Vladmir Putin and his cronies.

She said that the Russian authorities are hiding the body which is a cover up to allow “traces of yet another of Putin’s novichoks to disappear.”

“My husband could not be broken. And that’s exactly why Putin killed him. Shameful, cowardly, not daring to look into his eyes or simply say his name,” she said.

On Tuesday the Kremlin hit back denying the claim and said this is “not based on anything.”

The Kremlin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, “These are absolutely unfounded, insolent accusations about the head of the Russian state.”
