A spokeswoman for Russian opposition activist Alexei Navalny said his bank account had been frozen and the apartment confiscated after the court order.
One day ago, he was discharged from the hospital because he was treated for Novichok nerve agent poisoning.
Kira Yarmysh said: “They confiscated the property and residence of the unconscious person.”
His team accused President Vladimir Putin of ordering poisoning, which the Kremlin strongly denies.
The main opposition figures and Putin’s voice critics collapsed on a flight in Siberia on August 20 and were later transferred to the Charité Hospital in the German capital Berlin for treatment.

The German government said that French and Swedish laboratories have reconfirmed the German tests. These tests showed that the poison used by Navalny was an agent of Norwichg. Many governments have asked for an explanation. However, the Kremlin said there was no evidence.
After Navani was discharged from the hospital on Wednesday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that he was “free” to return to Moscow “at any time” and hoped that he would “recover soon.”
Why should he seize his assets?
Ms. Yamish said that officials confiscated the property of opposition militants on August 27, including his three-bedroom apartment in the southeast of the Russian capital Moscow.
The move follows a lawsuit filed by the Moscow Elementary School Catering Company, which is owned by the wealthy Russian businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin and is nicknamed “Putin’s Chef.”
Mr. Navani, his Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) and a colleague produced a video questioning the quality of products following a food poisoning outbreak in a Moscow school in 2018.
But in October 2019, the court ordered them to delete the tape and pay 88 million rubles (US$1.1 million; £900,000) in defamation damages, claiming that this had caused the company’s mental losses.
Mr. Prigozhin issued a statement on Wednesday that if Mr. Navalny “go to see his manufacturer, then I personally do not intend to pursue him in this world”.

Alexei Navalny nearly survived Novichok poisoning more than a month ago, but in Russia, business as usual-the courts are still pursuing him.
Last year, he published an investigation into the food supply of Moscow schools, claiming that there were safety risks.
The investigation pointed the finger at companies linked to Yevgeny Prigozhin. Yevgeny Prigozhin has a keen interest in many areas: from the Kremlin’s The banquet was to provide food for the military and middle school, and-people generally suspected, although the Russians denied it. Authorities-operating private military companies to safeguard Russia’s interests in Syria, Libya and some African countries.
Mr. Prigozhin sued Mr. Navalny for defamation and received damages totaling more than USD 1 million. The average apartment that Navani owns in the southern suburbs of Moscow is not worth that much.
The Anti-Corruption Foundation, established by opposition politicians, said it will need to reorganize, but despite the economic blow, it will continue to investigate corrupt Russian politicians.
What’s the latest news from Mr. Navani?
Mr. Navalny was discharged 32 days later, and 24 of them were in intensive care.
The hospital statement said: “Based on the patient’s condition and current condition, the attending physician believes that a full recovery is possible.” “However, it is too early to assess the potential long-term effects of his severe poisoning.”
After Mr. Navalny’s team got rid of the medical coma, they announced that he planned to return to Russia. Ms. Yarmysh said: “There is no other choice.”
However, she said on Wednesday that he will stay in Germany for the time being “because his treatment has not yet ended.”
Mr. Navani posted an online photo of himself without any help and said that the doctor gave him every chance of recovery.
He wrote: “Further recovery does not require hospitalization, but a normal life.” “Walk and spend time with my family. Immerse yourself in daily life.
“My plan is simple: [go to] He said, “It might be a rehabilitation center. Stand on one leg. Regain control of my fingers. Keep balance.”
