Russia arrests hundreds at protests supporting Alexei Navalny

Hundreds of people were detained across Russia on Saturday as police used force to break up rallies in cities across the country where protesters demanded Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny's release. Among the arrested was Yulia Navalnaya, Navalny's wife.

Russian authorities had warned people to stay away from the protests, claiming they risked catching the coronavirus and prosecution and possible jail time for attending an unauthorized event.
