Moscow, 23 January 2021 (dpa/MIA) – Yulia Navalnaya, the wife of jailed Russian dissident Alexei Navalny, has been detained at a protest in Moscow demanding her husband’s release.
Navalnaya posted a picture of herself in a dark space on Instagram with the caption: “Sorry for the poor quality. The light in the police van is very poor.”
A previous picture on her feed showed her attending the Moscow protest. Navalny‘s team had also posted a picture of his mother at the unauthorized event.
Police officers have detained several demonstrators in the Russian capital, according to a dpa reporter at the scene. Navalny‘s closest collaborator, lawyer Lyubov Sobol, was also detained.
