In Russia, opposition politician Alexei Navalny has been freed from jail, 30 days after his arrest for promoting protests demanding democracy. The demonstrations earlier this month were crushed by riot police, who beat protesters in the streets of Moscow and arrested over 800 people. This is Navalny speaking to reporters just after his release on Friday.
Alexei Navalny: “Now we see that lies and fraud are not enough for them. It’s not enough for them to ban candidates from an election. They deliberately want to arrest dozens and to beat up hundreds. This shows that there is no support for this regime. They feel this, and they are afraid.”
