Hundreds People Arrested At Pro-Navalny Protests In Russia

EMERGENCY ALERTS

On Wednesday, 21/04/2021, more than one thousand people have been arrested in the protests to support Alexei Navalny.

Demonstrations took place across Russia, with rallies in the major cities of Moscow and St Petersburg attracting the highest number of attendees, despite a current ban on protests.

Navalny, who has been on a hunger strike for weeks, was jailed in February and is demanding medical attention for acute back pain and leg numbness.
