Navalny will be buried on Friday in Moscow
Late Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny will be buried at a Moscow cemetery on Friday, a spokesman has confirmed.

The service will be held at the Borisovskoye cemetery, after a farewell ceremony will be held in the Marjino district.

On Tuesday, the opposition leader's spokeswoman said the team had run into trouble finding a place to hold the ceremony, as many companies refused to get involved when they found out who it was about.

Alexei Navalny died in an Arctic prison earlier this month.

For many years, he has been the most high-profile critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Navalny's widow, Yulia, as well as several world leaders, have directly blamed Putin for his death.
