Thousands across Russia defy ban on Alexei Navalny protests

BBC, 22 Apr 2021
Thousands of people around Russia joined unauthorised rallies on Wednesday to protest against the detention of jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

They are calling for Navalny, who has been on hunger strike for weeks, to receive proper medical care. More than 1,000 people were reportedly arrested.

The largest protest was in Moscow, but others took place in major cities including St Petersburg, Vladivostok in the Far East, a number of cities in Siberia, and the central city of Vladimir where Navalny is being held.
