Alexei Navalny's mother has said she has been shown his body, but Russian authorities are pressuring her to allow a "secret" burial.

Lyudmila Navalny has stated through a video that she was in a morgue where she signed a death certificate for her son. 

The former opposition leader's press secretary said a medical report presented to Ms Navalnaya said he died of natural causes.

Meanwhile, Navalny's widow has said that he was killed by the Russian authorities.

Lyudmila Navalnaya said the law required officials to hand over her son's body, but that she was being blackmailed after they refused to do so. 

"Looking me in the eye, they told me that if I don't agree to a secret burial, they will do something with my son's body. Time is not on your side, the corpse is decomposing," she said.

On Thursday, the President of the USA, Joe Biden, met the widow of Mr. Navalny, Yulia, and his daughter, Dasha Navalnaya, in San Francisco.

"The president expressed his admiration for Alexei Navalny's extraordinary courage and his legacy in the fight against corruption and for a free and democratic Russia," the White House said in a statement, adding that the US was preparing to impose sanctions news to Russia./ CNA
