If anyone was still on the fence that Russia is our friend, here you have it. 3.5 years for having the audacity to survive a state backed assassination attempt.

Vladimir Putin was probably just displeased that Navalny didn't sing "God Save The Tsar" loudly enough for his liking.

But wait, he didn't report to parole because he was in a coma from the poison attack.
That's not the law's fault. He didn't report. The law is the law. How many times you heard that?

Gawdam dumb Russians going through all that trouble. Coulda just planter 2 joints in his house and gave him 25 years to life, Yee Haw!

But that is not the Russian way. Your enemies must know it was you quashing dissent, while you maintain a plausibly deniable position. It was the court, after all.

Which is why Putin early on made judges swear an oath to the head of State, not the State itself.
