Alexei Navalny was detained at Sheremetyevo airport after returning to Russia from Germany. The FSIN explained that the reason for this was multiple violations of the probationary period.

“At the Sheremetyevo airport, officers of the search department of the operational department of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia in Moscow detained Alexey Navalny, who was sentenced to conditional punishment, who has been on the wanted list since December 29, 2020 for multiple violations of the probationary period,” the ministry said in a statement.

It is noted that later the court will determine a further preventive measure against Navalny.

In addition, the Federal Penitentiary Service in Moscow stressed that Navalny’s lawyer was familiar with the decision to declare his client on the wanted list, as well as the submission to cancel the conditional sentence and the execution of the sentence imposed by the sentence.

The department told about the intention to detain Alexei Navalny after his arrival in Russia a few days ago. A report dated January 14 stated that the actual whereabouts of the convict were unknown.

“On November 27, 2020 with regard to A.A. Navalny. Initial search activities were started, and on December 29 convicted Navalny A.A. was put on the wanted list with an order to take measures to arrest him while establishing his whereabouts, ”they said at the time to the Moscow Federal Penitentiary Service.

The department noted that over the past year, Navalny repeatedly and systematically violated the conditions of the probationary period. In particular, he did not show up for registration at least six times. Along with this, the penitentiary authorities noticed that Navalny had been in the Berlin clinic “Charite” since the end of August, but on September 23, the blogger was discharged. After that, the UFSIN noted, the Russian did not respond to the notification of his appearance on October 23.

“Only a month later – 11/23/2020 – A.A. Navalny. sent a notification to the Federal Penitentiary Service that he lives in Berlin, at the Hotel Arabel, where, according to him, he is restoring his health, ”the message said. It also noted that no official confirmation of the treatment at the hotel was provided.

On the basis of these circumstances, the Federal Penitentiary Service in Moscow announced their intentions to take all actions to detain Navalny until the court makes a decision on the possibility of replacing the suspended sentence with a real one.

Recall that in 2013, Navalny was sentenced to five years probation in the case of embezzlement of the property of the state enterprise “Kirovles”. In addition, in 2014, he was sentenced by the court to three and a half years of suspended imprisonment for embezzlement of funds from Yves Rocher Vostok and Multidisciplinary Processing Company.

Initially, such a measure was supposed to be valid until the end of 2019, but it was decided to extend it due to systematic violations by the blogger.

“Navalny’s appearance at registration took place not on the set days, but when it was convenient for him. On March 26, Navalny disobeyed the police, for which he was taken to the police department, and later he was sentenced to administrative arrest.

Departure from Berlin

Alexey Navalny arrived in Moscow from Berlin aboard the Pobeda airline. In Germany, he arrived at the airport in a black Audi car with flashing lights, accompanied by police crews. Moreover, the registration of the blogger for the flight was carried out by the law enforcement officers themselves, and the motorcade delivered him directly to the plane.
