On August 27, the Tverskoy Court of Moscow sent Navalny under administrative arrest for 30 days for the Strike of Voters action, which took place at the end of January.

Alexey Navalny is detained immediately after leaving the special detention center, where he spent 30 days of arrest. Dozhd reports this. The reasons for the detention are still unknown.

The Tverskoy Court of Moscow placed Navalny under administrative arrest for 30 days for Strike of Voters, which took place in late January. His detention occurred during the preparation of another action - against retirement-age increase.

A protocol was drawn up under Article 20.2 of the Code of Administrative Offenses (Repeated Violation of the Rules of Holding a Rally). The supporters of Navalny said that his detention was necessary to prevent him from taking part in the action against the pension reform on September 9.

Despite the arrest of Navalny, the protest action took place in many cities of Russia, and there were mass detentions of activists and journalists.

On September 11, the head of Rosgvardiya, Viktor Zolotov, called Navalny out, promising to beat him to a pulp. The reason was the investigation of the Anti-Corruption Foundation, which accused Rosgvardiya of buying products at inflated prices. Zolotov said that Alexey Navalny insulted him and "it could not be forgiven."
