MOSCOW More than 1,000 people were arrested Saturday as protesters took to the streets across Russia calling for the release of jailed opposition leader Alexei Navalny a broad show of defiance against President Vladimir Putin and his widening crackdowns against critics. Navalny's wife Yulia was among those detained.

The rallies in nearly 100 cities and towns from Russia's Far East to central Moscow came less than a week after Navalny returned from Germany, where he recovered from a nerve agent poisoning in August during a trip to Siberia. Navalny was arrested shortly after stepping off the plane.

Some 40,000 people participated in the Moscow protest, the Reuters news agency reported, while police said 4,000 people took part. Tens of thousands of others joined protests across the country.

According to human rights monitoring group OVD-Info, at least 1,090 people were arrested around Russia.

1. Can't help but wonder if they are inspired in some way by America's dumping of Trump!

The power of the vote!
