MOSCOW (Reuters) – Imprisoned Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, who has been on hunger strike since the end of March, is in a solitary ward of a prison hospital specializing in tuberculosis treatment, one of his lawyers wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

Vadim Kobzev said Navalny was hospitalized on Sunday and received a glucose drop. The United States has warned Moscow of the grave consequences if it dies in prison.
