I really don’t understand what Navalny is thinking? Dying from a hunger strike will not lead to a revolution. His supporters will hit the streets and the security forces will shut them down.
He needs to stay alive, and live to fight another day.
Despite what you hear from the most anti-Putin voices like Maddow, Ioffe, Browder and Kasparov, this is a very robust regime just like China, Iran and Cuba. Putin could go tomorrow and not much would change.
It’s not like Putin goes and Biden’s people would be able to land in Moscow and run the show like we did in Ukraine. There’s no way the military and intelligence agencies would ever allow that to happen.
