According to Russian media reports, the criminal case against detained Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has been brought to court.

Initially, the case was filed for establishing an “extremist organization”, but now, according to documents submitted to the Moscow City Court, Navalny is charged on the basis of six more articles of the criminal code.

He is accused of “calling for extremism”, “founding an organization aimed at civil rights”, “funding extremism”, “founding an extremist organisation”, engaging minors in “dangerous activities” and “rehabilitating Nazism”.

It is not yet known when the trial will begin.

Navalny was detained in January 2021 on his way back from Germany, where he was being treated for an attempted poisoning by Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) agents.

In February of the same year, Navalny was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for allegedly violating his 2014 suspended sentence while undergoing treatment in Germany.

In March of the following year, he was sentenced to nine more years in prison for “fraud” and “contempt of court”.

Last October, a criminal case was brought against Navalny and several of his friends for “extremism”.
