MOSCOW, September 29 (RAPSI) – Police officers have arrested Russian opposition politician Alexey Navalny for repeated calls for participation in an unauthorized rally, the Interior Ministry’s press-service stated on Friday.

According to prosecutors, Navalny and other politicians called for a rally in Nizhny Novgorod on September 29.  The rally was not authorized by the city’s administration despite similar rallies being recently approved by nine other Russian cities.

In 2017, Navalny was repeatedly detained for participation in rallies, notably ones that took place on March 26 and June 12.
