MOSCOW (Reuters) – Lawyers for jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, who went on a hunger strike, said on Wednesday his health is deteriorating, Interfax news agency reported. Navalny, 44, a prominent opponent of President Vladimir Putin, announced the hunger strike last week in protest at what he said was the prison authorities’ refusal to adequately treat him for acute back and leg pain. Interfax quoted his lawyer, Vadim Kobzev, who visited him in the penal colony on Wednesday, saying that Navalny had been diagnosed with hernias in his spine.
