Alexey Navalny’s wife Yulia says she’s under police surveillance

Yulia Navalnaya, the wife of jailed Russian opposition figure Alexey Navalny, says she’s being followed by the police. She stated this in a Instagram post that included a photo of a vehicle (pictured below), which, according to Navalnaya, has been parked near her home for the past day.

That car has been parked near my house for a day already — it’s operational police officers keeping an eye on me. Well, it’s no surprise — yesterday we saw that they’ve started holding mobile “troika” hearings, now they are persecuting me as the wife of an enemy of the people. The Year of ’37 has come and we didn’t notice.

On Monday, January 18, Alexey Navalny was remanded in custody until February 15 during a hearing at a police station in Khimki. This came after Russia’s prison authorities filed a claim in court seeking to revoke Navalny’s probation in Yves Rocher case and incarcerate him under a reinstated sentence on the grounds that he violated the terms of his probation. Navalny is currently being held in an isolation cell at Moscow’s Matrosskaya Tishina remand prison.
