Alexei Navalny, the imprisoned Russian opposition leader and survivor of a poisoning attempt, has been relocated from a prison near Moscow to an undisclosed location, as confirmed by his spokeswoman on Friday. 

Concerns heightened among Navalny’s supporters as he has not been seen since early December, prompting fears of a potential prison transfer.
