Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was detained by police on January 17 as he returned to Moscow five months after he was poisoned, according to his press secretary and Russian state news agency Tass.

This footage shows a large crowd gathered at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport ahead of his arrival from Germany. According to Tass, Navalny was arrested for “repeatedly” violating his probation as ordered in a 2014 conviction for fraud. He is set to be held by authorities until he appears in court.

Local reports said 58 people were arrested in Moscow and seven in St Petersburg during gatherings related to Navalny’s return.
