Vadim Kobzev said Navalny, who is in a penal colony serving a sentence for embezzlement, had been diagnosed with two spinal hernias.
Last week, Navalny started a hunger strike to demand proper treatment for acute back and leg pain.
Seven people were arrested outside the London headquarters of Barclays bank on Wednesday after climate change activists broke windows to protest the role of the financial sector in climate change, news wires reported.
