(VIDEO) Navalny’s return – with sparks

Russian opponent Alexei Navalny arrived in Russia on Sunday, taking off from Berlin, although authorities in his home country warned that he could be arrested on arrival.

The plane landed in Moscow, but at an airport other than scheduled. The plane of the Russian company Pobeda on board which Navalny was on board was to arrive at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport, but was redirected and landed in Sheremetyevo.

Russian police arrested several supporters of the opponent on Sunday, before he landed in Moscow. Many supporters were waiting for him at Moscow’s Vnukovo airport, where the plane with which he left Germany should land.

In Vnukovo, police evacuated protesters chanting Navalny’s name from the airport terminal and “Russia will be free!”

Putin’s opponent has been in Germany since August. He was hospitalized in Berlin for treatment after being poisoned with the neurotoxic agent Noviciok.

On Wednesday, after Navalny announced his intention to return to Russia, Moscow prison authorities said they would make every effort to arrest him on charges of violating conditions of release following a suspended sentence in a case in 2014.

“If I am arrested? It’s impossible, I’m innocent, “he told reporters on board the plane.
