Russia Reacts After CNN documentary of Jailed Vladimir Putin Critic, Alexei Navalny Wins Oscars For Best Documentary



The Russian government said on Monday that the award of an Oscar to a documentary about jailed Putin Critic, Alexei Navalny showed “a certain element of politicization” by Hollywood.

“Navalny”, which won the Academy Award for a best feature documentary on Sunday, shows the fierce Kremlin critic recovering in Germany from being poisoned with a nerve agent in Siberia in 2020, and working with the investigative news outlet Bellingcat to unmask those responsibly.

"Hollywood is politicized" - Russia reacts after CNN documentary of jailed Putin critic, Alexei Navalny wins  Oscars for best documentary

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov speaking on Monday, March 13 said he had not watched the film, but that nevertheless, “I dare to assume that there is of course a certain element of politicization of the topic”.

He said that “Hollywood is no stranger to politics, it is politicized “but I can’t talk about any cinematic merits of this film, because I’m not familiar with it.”

In the shocking documentary, Navalny pinned responsibility for the poisoning episode on a team of agents from the FSB state security service although Russia denied attempting to kill him.

Navalny has long been a thorn in the side of President Vladimir Putin, who avoids mentioning his name in public. He is now serving combined sentences of 11-1/2 years in a high-security penal colony for fraud and contempt of court on charges that he says were trumped up to silence him.
