Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko believes that the death of jailed Russian opposition leader Aleksei Navalny represents "Russia's true face." Klitschko was interviewed jointly by Current Time and RFE/RL on the sidelines of the annual Munich Security Conference on February 16 -- after Russian authorities announced Navalny's death and before his team confirmed it. Klitschko mentioned other slain Kremlin critics -- journalist Anna Politkovskaya and politician Boris Nemtsov. "Anyone who has a different opinion than Putin, in the better case, ends up in jail -- or gets killed," he said.
