Vladimir Kara-Murza, a prominent Russian opposition figure and critic of the Kremlin who has been imprisoned for speaking out against the war on Ukraine, has been transferred to a maximum-security prison in Siberia, his lawyer said Sunday.
Kara-Murza, a Washington Post opinions contributor, was convicted of treason and sentenced to 25 years in prison in April after publicly denouncing Russia’s invasion in Ukraine. The U.S. State Department has said he is being held unjustly on politically motivated charges.
