Moscow police officers released Navalny's wife
The wife of Alexei Navalny, Yulia Navalnaya, was detained by law enforcement officers and taken to the police station in the Bogorodskoye district in a paddy wagon. The activist’s wife informed about her detention in Instagram, commenting on the corresponding photo.
Navalnaya’s lawyer Veronika Polyakova said that Yulia is in the Sokol police station: ”So far, I am not allowed to see her ... the police officers are patrolling the perimeter," Polyakova said, RIA Novosti reports.
The lawyer added that since Navalnaya has a minor child, she cannot be kept in the department for more than three hours. It is not yet clear whether a protocol on an administrative offence will be drawn up against Navalnaya.
