MOSCOW, July 20 (Itar-Tass) - Blogger Alexei Navalny has got off a Kirov-Moscow train and was welcomed by a wave of applause. He headed to the city along a corridor, made by the police.
At the same time, the police announced evacuation from the Yaroslavsky Railway Station following a call about a possible coming explosion there.
“A stranger called the police and said an explosive device has been installed at the station. Thus, we are evacuating the passengers,” the Moscow law enforcement authorities told Itar-Tass. The police are searching the territory, though suspecting the call may be fake.
On Thursday, the court in Kirov sentenced Navalny to a five-year term, and he was arrested at court. A day earlier, the Moscow City Elections Commission registered officially Navalny as a candidate for mayor of Moscow. The election is due on September 8. Oppositionist Alexei Navalny and former Director of the Vyatka Wood Company Petr Ofitserov were released at court /against written obligations not to leave the country/. Thus, Judge of the Kirov region’s Court Ignatiy Yembasinov satisfied an appeal from the regional prosecution. “The prosecution’s appeal is satisfied, the restraint to Navalny and Ofitserov - until the Leininsky Regional Court’s decision comes into force - is to be changed from arrest to written obligations not to leave the country,” the regional court’s decision reads.
