Russians Seize Possessions of Opposition Leader Navalny
Russian authorities have seized the apartment of the well-known opposition leader Navalny, who is recovering from poisoning in Germany.
They also have frozen the bank accounts of the influential critic of the Moscow regime.
It means, among other things, that Navalny cannot sell or give away his home in the Russian capital, said the Navalny spokeswoman.
Earlier this week, the Russian politician was allowed to leave the hospital in the German capital Berlin where he had been admitted a month ago.
Navalny became very ill on a domestic flight in Russia last month. He was allowed to go to Germany to be treated there.
Investigators determined that he had been poisoned with a Novichok nerve poison. Western countries are demanding clarification from Moscow, but President Putin’s regime denies any involvement.
