Navalny Wins Best Documentary at Oscars

Navalny, a film based on reports of the poisoning of jailed Russian dissident Alexei Navalny, won the Oscar for best documentary.

News from AFP.

Canadian director Daniel Rohr's film is seen as a political rise of Navalny, a staunch opponent of Russian President Vladimir Putin. During a trip to Siberia in 2020, the toxic nerve agent 'Novichok' was injected into his body and this information was found after investigation.

While accepting the award, Rohar told the audience, "There is one person directly associated with this award who could not be here with us today." And he is Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny. He is currently in solitary confinement. In this case, I want to confirm that we have brought out his words correctly.

He also said that Vladimir Putin is unjustly invading Ukraine. Navalny, 46, blamed Putin for being behind the poisoning. He has been held in a maximum security prison outside Moscow for the past two years after being convicted in a money laundering case.

Yulia Navalnaya said, 'My husband is in prison only for speaking the truth. My husband is in jail just to protect democracy.'

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2022 and won a BAFTA.

It's the best of 'All That Breath', 'All the Beauty and the Bloodshed', 'Fire of Love', and 'A House Made of Splinter'.
