Al Jazeera News, excerpts:
Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has said he will be held in prison for another 30 days following his arrest in Moscow on Saturday.
Navalny’s Instagram post translation:
After two days in the dark tramps’ cell in detention, I’m happy to find myself at the Tverskyi court. Here there’s at least light. Old Putin is so afraid of our protest on 09.09 against the increase of retirement age that I will be detained for another 30 days and I won’t be able to organise anything else myself. But I don’t doubt that you will be able to do it without me. The protest will be held in almost 100 cities in the country, you must join. Swindlers and thieves will not quit by themselves and no one except for us can defend our pensions and our present and future. Whoever stays at home enables the thieves. Don’t miss me.
Russia’s opposition leader to remain in detention until after protests he organised against unpopular pension reforms.
