Russian police have reportedly detained more than 1, people across the country who took to the streets in support of opposition leader Alexey Navalny, a top rival of Russian President Vladimir Putin who was detained last week when he returned to Moscow from Berlin, where he had spent months recovering from a poisoning allegedly carried out by Russia's FSB spy agency. He was handed a day jail term. Among those reportedly detained at Saturday's rallies was Navalny's wife, Yulia Navalnaya, who had previously said she's been under surveillance since her husband's arrest. She posted a picture of herself inside a police van to her Instagram account , while CNN reports a video on social media shows her being stopped by officers at the entrance to a metro station in Moscow and led to the van. Lyubov Sobol, a prominent activist and lawyer for Navalny's Anti-Corruption Foundation, was also reportedly detained, per Deutsche Welle. The demonstrations began in the eastern Russian city of Vladivostok and spread west throughout the day, with protesters in some cities bracing frigid temperatures.

Wife of Kremlin critic Navalny among more than 4, detained in Russia protests.

The wife of Russian anti-corruption figurehead Alexei Navalny is among more than of his supporters who have been arrested and detained throughout the country after protestors gathered in cities to call for his release from prison. Yulia Navalnaya shared a picture to social media from the back of a police van on Saturday afternoon after her detention. Protestors have gathered in Moscow , St Petersburg and cities and towns in Siberia, where temperatures dropped to minus 40 , to demand the release of Mr Navalny, who was arrested on his return to Moscow last weekend after spending five months in Germany recovering from Novichok poisoning. Russian authorities accused Mr Navalny, one of the few figures to challenge Vladimir Putin, of breaching bail conditions during his time in Germany relating to disputed fraud charges. So far, more than 1, people have been arrested and detained according to local media. Footage shows people being hit with batons and riot shields and tear gas being used in at least one city.

The demonstrators spread out from the eastern regions of Russia, across the nation, included thousands gathered in central Moscow to march to the Kremlin. Riot police detained scores of them, The New York Times reported. Navalny, a year-old opposition leader, anticorruption activist and blogger, was detained upon landing in Moscow on Sunday after recovering from poisoning from a military-grade nerve agent in Siberia in August that left him in a coma. Western officials have described the poisoning as an assassination attempt, according to The New York Times. On Monday, a Russian court ordered that Navalny be detained for one month.
Yulia Navalny was detained during a huge rally in the capital, Moscow, at least the second time she has been detained during the mass protests in support of her year-old husband who survived a poisoning last year. Officials had locked up much of the capital — closing subway stations near the Kremlin, cutting bus traffic and ordering restaurants and stores to stay closed — and threatened stiff prison sentences for protesters. But thousands took to the streets Sunday, yet again engulfing many cities in the largest, most widespread show of discontent that Russia has seen in years. The AP reports more than 3, arrests.
