After being poisoned with a severe nerve agent, which he blames on the regime of President Vladimir Putin, Navalny has been recovering in Germany. In Moscow, Pushkin Square in the city center was packed with around 5,000 demonstrators. Clashes with police broke out and protesters were hauled off to police buses and jail vehicles by riot officers.

Other demonstrations spread from the more populated European cities to the island city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, north of Japan, across Russia’s vast territory. In the Siberian city of Yakutsk, where temperatures fell as low as -50 ° C, demonstrations were also conducted.

The scope of the protests showed how, amid official government repression and being systematically ignored by state media, Navalny and his anti-corruption movement have established an extensive support network.

Released

She has now been released, according to Interfax, a Russian agency.

The British government has urged Russia to uphold international human rights obligations in response to the arrests at the rallies.
