A spokesman for Alexei Navalny said today that the Russian dissident's funeral, scheduled for 1pm (Greece time), may be delayed as his body is still in the morgue.

The funeral service and burial of Navalny, the Russian opposition leader, will take place today in Moscow.

One hour before the scheduled start of the funeral procession, people are waiting in line outside the church:

His spokeswoman, Kira Jarmis, announced earlier this week on Platform X that the service will take place today at 14:00 Moscow time (13:00 Greek time) at the Church of the Icon of the Mother of God in the Mariino district where Navalny lived . Navalny will then be buried at the Borisovskoye cemetery, which is across the Moskva River to the south, according to Yarmish.
