MOSCOW, February 27. /TASS/. A Russian court on Friday confirmed administrative detention for prominent opposition leader Alexey Navalny for breaching a law that restricts demonstrations, a TASS correspondent said.
The Moscow city court therefore upheld a decision by Moscow's Presnensky district court and rejected an appeal from prosecutors.
The court ordered Navalny jailed until March 6 for handing out leaflets in the Moscow metro last week to promote an unauthorized protest rally on March 1. Navalny will be released before noon next Friday and will not be able to participate in the so-called "Spring march", which, meanwhile, has been approved by the authorities.
