Alexei Navalny, winner of the 2021 Sakharov Prize

Alexei Navalny is the winner of this year’s Sakharov Prize, following a decision by European Parliament President David Sassoli and leaders of political groups on October 20. He is a Russian opposition politician and anti-corruption activist, who rose to international prominence for organizing protests against Russian President Vladimir Putin and his government, running for office, and advocated for anti-corruption reforms. Due to his activities, he is currently being held in a high-security penal colony in Russia.
