Russian police raid opposition leader Alexei Navalny’s office

Alexei Navalny has been targeted again in a raid on his anti-corruption center. It comes after one of his allies was forcibly sent to a remote outpost in the arctic.
He was dragged by police during a raid on his Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) headquarters in Moscow, according to his spokeswoman.

“Alexei was forcibly detained and taken away. He did not resist. Lawyers are still at the FBK, and there"s a search underway”, - Kira Yarmysh, his spokeswoman, wrote on Twitter.
He was released shortly afterwards, added Yarmysh.
According to her, police timed the raid to coincide with the filming of an episode of Navalny’s YouTube show “Navalny Live”, so that “there can be no show”.
