MOSCOW, Fenruary 15. /TASS/. Bloger Alexei Navalny, who is under home arrest, has been detained in Moscow’s metro, Navalny’s press secretary Kira Yarmysh said on Sunday.
She said Navalny was on his way to take part in a meeting dedicated to preparations of an opposition march, when he was "detained in metro and taken away." She said she had no information about where Navalny had been taken to.
So far, TASS has obtained no official information from the police.
Navalny, who already had two suspended sentenced /in 2013, on embezzlement charges in the Kirovles case, and in late December 2014, on charges of embezzling Yves Rocher funds, together with his brother/, reportedly violated his home arrest terms previously.
