Russian dissident Alexei Navalny has been detained at Sheremetyevo airport near Moscow, according to a post on Navalny’s Telegram channel.

He was detained while going through passport control, according to the post.

Navalny’s plane from Berlin was originally due to land at Vnukovo airport on Sunday evening but diverted to Sheremetyevo at the last minute.

Russian authorities previously said they planned to arrest Navalny, 44, immediately upon return to his home country, accusing him of breaking the terms of a suspended sentence and probation. (dpa/NAN)
