.@navalny aide, @vashurkov posts on FB: “Days before Alexey boarded his flight to Moscow, we agreed on a list of people he felt should be sanctioned if the west wanted to get serious about encouraging Russia to cease attacking human rights and reign in corruption.” Top 8 below:

Quoted @navalny

Before he's taken away to prison, @navalny sends a message to his supporters by taking a page from FDR, "There's nothing to be afraid of other than fear itself".
Compare his courage and conviction with the policeman standing by.

Navalny flashes a V sign to chanting supporters as he is marched from a police station to a van that will drive him to prison. He's called for protests on Saturday. Expect to see a lot of this. (pic via @tass_agency)

Russian journalist @MikhailFishman accurately breaks down the significance of the last 24 hours.
-Yesterday, everyone saw Putin's incredible fear of losing power.
- @navalny is no longer just a famous politician who challenged the Kremlin. He's a symbolic figure. A major turn.

Navalny will reportedly be taken to a prison facility in Zelenograd, far out of town _ in another parallel to Belarus where political prisoners are often kept in jails far from town centre.

Quoted @navalny

Заключён под стражу на 30 суток до 15 февраля 2021 года

After a last minute hearing, a court rules that @navalny will be detained through Feb. 15th. As he said in a video released earlier, “the highest degree of lawlessness”.

Only one Russian state news program covered ⁦@navalny⁩’s return to Moscow. Russia-1 allotted 2 min 20 seconds to the story (at the end of the hour). Its telling: Navalny had an entourage larger than Merkel’s, and showed no photos of his detainment.

👉 “Mr. Navalny knew what awaited him, because he knows as well as the dissidents of the Soviet era knew that the one thing a corrupt and authoritarian regime cannot abide is the truth.”

To those who've been asking me why is Putin terrified of Navalny: this is why.
Russian despots are always afraid of being exposed for who they are. Putin has cultivated an image of a Manly Man Returning Russia to Greatness. Navalny has unmasked him as a petty, avaricious grifter.

Are you concerned you ended your career with that vote?" George Stephanopoulos asked.

Let me complete that quote for you, again: “I may very well have," Meijer said nonchalantly. "But it's important we have elected leaders who are not thinking solely about what's in their self-interest, not what is politically expedient, but what we actually need for the country.”

“the emergence of a ‘Trump-made-me-do-it’ defense could serve to undercut the baseless narrative that outside agitators or disloyal servants were responsible for the Capitol attack.”

 191  12  43

Quoted @SecPompeo

Deeply troubled by Russia's decision to arrest Aleksey Navalny. Confident political leaders do not fear competing voices, nor see the need to commit violence against or wrongfully detain, political opponents.

Well said. But Pompeo seems to have left out the part where his own boss incited supporters to do just this against elected officials, including the Vice President.

Trump on QAnon to McConnell July 1st: “people say they're into all kinds of bad things and say all kinds of terrible things about them," but, my understanding is they basically are just people who want good government." -@jonathanvswan & @zacharybasu

Quoted @yashar

People keep asking why Navalny went back to Russia...some have called it foolish.

How do you think change happens? It doesn't happen from a comfy apartment in Berlin or New York.

It happens when people like @navalny are willing to sit in prison or take a bullet.

Russian patriots like Alexei Navalny and Boris Nemtsov (and many others) have risked and lost their lives in the face of Putin’s thuggery, oppression and lawlessness.

It’s time that western democracies do their part. Clearly tough statements and even sanctions are not enough.

Quoted @fontanka_news

Навальный находится в транзитной зоне, загранпаспорт ему не вернули — адвокат

Navalny’s lawyer says he is still detained at the airport transit zone. His passport withheld.

 107  11  41

Quoted @jakejsullivan

Mr. Navalny should be immediately released, and the perpetrators of the outrageous attack on his life must be held accountable. The Kremlin’s attacks on Mr. Navalny are not just a violation of human rights, but an affront to the Russian people who want their voices heard.

Biden’s incoming National Security Adviser sending Russia a clear message. This time, Putin should expect that Sullivan speaks for Biden.

H.R. McMaster said to @jaketapper that, despite Trump attempting to undermine confidence in our democratic process, our constitution thwarted him. Russia has a decent constitution too, but it is meaningless. @navalny is a constant reminder of that.

Quoted @Kira_Yarmysh

Задержание Алексея

.@navalny: “If I’m arrested, then take me away. If I’m not, then allow my attorney to come with me.”

As police detain Navalny, a reminder that rule of law only matters if it’s adhered to. Charges will be cooked up. But as @Kasparov63 says, Russia under Putin is a rogue regime.
