"I want to live in a free Russia, I want to build a free Russia", Navalnaya said in a video message with the title "I will continue to work for Alexei Navalny".

"Vladimir Putin killed my husband," Navalnaya said, adding that he will work with the Russian people to challenge the Kremlin to create a new Russia.

"Well, I still have the other half telling me that I have no right to give up." I will continue the work of Alexei Navalny, I will continue to fight for my country".
