January 19 According to a report by Russian satellite network, the judge of the court of Shimki City, Moscow Oblast, Russia, decided to arrest Navalny, a Russian opposition personage, at a court hearing held by the city police station for a period of 30 days.

Defence counsel Vadim Kobzev tweeted: “Aleksei Navalny will be held in custody for 30 days until February 15, 2021.”

The court will hold a hearing on January 29 whether to commute Navalny’s probation to actual sentence.
