The remains of Alexeï Navalny, which his relatives had requested for more than a week, have been handed over to his mother, the Russian opponent's spokesperson said on Saturday.

Alexey's body was handed over to his mother.

Many thanks to all those who requested this with us.

Lyudmila Ivanovna is still in Salekhard.

The funeral is still pending.

We do not know if the authorities will interfere to carry it out as the family wants and as Alexey deserves.
