President Vladimir Putin’s fiercest critic Navalny, who has been detained upon his return to Russia, released a video claiming Putin has secretly built the world’s most expensive palace.
The ruling concluded an hours-long court hearing set up at a police precinct where the opposition politician was detained after his arrest upon arrival in Moscow.
Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny returned to Russia for the first time since he was poisoned last summer.
Investigators are investigating Lyubov Sobol for trespassing as part of opposition leader Alexey Navalny’s plan to dupe an alleged FSB agent.
In a blog post, the Kremlin critic said he phoned a man named Konstantin Kudryavtsev, who he said was a chemical weapons expert with the FSB domestic intelligence agency.
Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny appeared in a selfie on Instagram with his family at Berlin's Charite hospital after his suspected poisoning.
The improvement in his condition came as two European laboratories corroborated the findings that the Soviet-era military-grade agent was used on the Kremlin critic.
The Kremlin was speaking a day after German Chancellor Merkel said Russian dissident Navalny had been poisoned with a Soviet-style Novichok nerve agent in an attempt to murder him.
Alexey Navalny is still in an artificial coma at the hospital's intensive care unit but doctors do not believe his life is at immediate risk.
Navalny, who has been detained and jailed several times for organising similar protests, was barred from running in Russia's presidential election in March.
