Police on Sunday detained protestors exterior the Matrosskaya Tishina jail in Moscow, the place jailed opposition chief Alexei Navalny is supposedly being held.
It got here as tens of hundreds of individuals took to the streets throughout the nation to demand Navalny’s launch.
Hundreds had been detained by Russian police who had closed metro stations in Moscow.
Navalny, an anti-corruption investigator who’s the best-known critic of President Vladimir Putin, was arrested on January 17 upon coming back from Germany, the place he spent 5 months recovering from nerve-agent poisoning that he blames on the Kremlin.
Russian authorities have rejected the accusations.
