The death on February 16, 2024, of Alexei Navalny shocked and angered the world. According to Russian officials, he died in the Arctic penal colony where he was serving a 19-year sentence. Navalny rose to prominence exposing high-level corruption within Russia's government. He achieved international recognition as the Kremlin's most outspoken critic, openly accusing President Vladimir Putin's regime of "sucking the blood out of Russia" through a "feudal state" concentrating power in the Kremlin.

But what do we know about this opposition leader, political activist, and lone uniting figure?
