MOSCOW — Jailed Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny will end his hunger strike after 24 days, he said on Instagram Friday, following the advice of his doctors who warned he could soon die.

1. I wonder if Navalny's decision to end his hunger strike got Putin to pull back from the Ukraine?

5. Let's keep the pressure on Putin

We need to remind him he is not a friend, but a foe and treat him accordingly. He doesn't like the negative attention at all, but his buddy, the former guy, is gone.
