Navalny is again suing the conditions of detention

Navalny himself was connected via video, reported the independent broadcaster Doschd. The 45-year-old has been complaining for months that he was wrongly classified as at risk of fleeing and that he was therefore tortured by being repeatedly awakened at night.

Specifically, this lawsuit concerns the conditions of detention during Navalny’s time in a Moscow remand prison earlier this year. It was initially unclear when the court would make a decision. At the beginning of the month, the well-known Russian opposition member failed with a similar lawsuit, which related to the conditions in the prison camp where he is now being held.
