Why Putin wants Alexei Navalny dead

Navalny's movement is unlike any in recent history.

In 2006, a lawyer named Alexei Navalny started a blog where he wrote about corruption in his home country of Russia. It’s the most prominent problem under the regime of Vladimir Putin, who has ruled Russia since 2000. Putin has systematically taken over the country’s independent media, oligarchy, elections, and laws to cement his own power and wield corruption to his advantage.
That’s what Navalny set out to expose. And in 2010, he published a groundbreaking investigation into a state-owned transportation company, Transneft, which was funneling state money into the hands of its executives. The post launched Navalny into politics.
By 2016, he had become the face of Russia’s opposition movement, run for mayor, and was running for president against Putin himself. Navalny was unifying Russia’s opposition like no politician had before. That’s why the Kremlin tried to kill him. Navalny survived the assassination attempt, launching a movement never before seen in Russia.

    the difference between china and Russia, is china uses his own country, he doesnt force them but just makes them love him more and want to vote him, plus he doesnt use force and corruption as a tactic. Only the smartest wins when both country works as hard as the other

    Russia as a country has so much potential to be a global superpower once more but its citizens live in poverty and decay, its population shrinks and its natural resources are wasted all in the name of corrupt oligarchs and money. This applies somewhat to most post soviet countries especially the Ukraine, wasted potential and 20 years of decline and stagnation at the hands of corruption

    i can't stand navalny and i'm pretty sure having him as president would be problematic as well. however he is probably the one who can break the neverending putin presidency one way or the other, and that alone makes it important to keep him alive and in the public eye, and report about him as much as possible.

    On one hand, I wish we would've exposed it 'anonymous' style and hid his identity. Although, I'm sure it would have been discovered eventually. On the other, his personality and him being a real, relatable person resonated with Russians and certainly helped the cause. When those horrible things happened to him, it makes his case even more believable.
