According to a Reuters report on Friday, Russia has filed criminal proceedings against the allies of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navani, accusing him of violent intrusion, but supporters deny it.
Navani tweeted that Lubov Sobol, the top leader of the Navani Anti-Corruption Foundation, was also detained for 48 hours. He also posted a video and a photo, which he said showed the police raided her home and loaded her into a police car.
According to Reuters, Russian authorities accused Sobol and others of breaking into an old woman’s apartment in Moscow while wearing uniforms used by the state consumer health monitoring agency to induce deliverymen to allow them to enter the building.
But according to Reuters, Sobol’s supporters said she was in the home of a security agent who was allegedly involved in the fatal poisoning of Navani.
According to a Reuters translation, Navani wrote on Twitter in Russian: “They locked the mother of a child for two days to tell everyone: Don’t study this case in depth.” “Don’t dare to interact with our murderer. Mix up with the poisoned person and knock on the door. These killers are beyond reach.”
According to the Associated Press, Navani said earlier this week that he was allegedly an agent of the Russian Field Service.
During the phone call with the accused agent Konstantin Kudryavtsev, Navalny claimed that he was an official of the Russian National Security Council and asked Kudryavtsev to disclose his status in Navalny. A nerve agent was implanted in the underwear.
Navalny is recovering in an undisclosed location in Germany. He was hospitalized in August after leaving Tomsk by plane and fell ill.
In October, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons said that toxic chemicals extracted from Navalny’s blood and urine were related to the Novichok nerve agent group.
CNN and Bellingcat found in a joint investigation released earlier this month that an elite FSB poisoning unit consisting of up to 10 people was in Navalny (Navalny) As long as several years.
The FSB rejected Navalny’s account.
But earlier this week, the State Department also blamed the Financial Stability Board.
The Ministry of Defense said in a statement on Wednesday: “The United States believes that officials of the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) used Novichok nerve agent to poison Mr. Navani.” “Apart from the intervention and responsibility of the Russian government, there is no other reasonable cause. Explain the cause of Navalny’s poisoning.”
