Russian authorities are trying to cut off information from opposition leader Alexei navani and keep his allies away from the streets and the Internet. Just one day after the next round of protests in support of Russia’s leaders, who are currently in pre-trial detention, a court issued a soft ban on opposition brother Oleg navalni, his number two figure, libov sobor, and other key collaborators. During the mass demonstration on Saturday, all were accused of violating the epidemiological rules of the coronavirus epidemic. They are not allowed to leave home or use communications, including the Internet, until March 23. They can only talk to their families, lawyers and investigators.

Oleg navani, Sobol, Anastasia vasilieva (Chairman of the union of opposition doctors and doctors) and Maria aliojina, a member of the punk cat riot group, were arrested in a wave of searches and arrests on Wednesday night and transferred to a pre-trial detention center. On Friday, a Moscow court agreed to take restrictive measures against them for nearly two months. This opinion further increased pressure on the circle around the main opponents, a day after navani called for further demonstrations, who had just returned from Germany to Moscow, where he recovered from poisoning that almost cost his life.

New protests are expected to be held in more than 100 Russian cities on Sunday, when tens of thousands of people from 110 cities took part and more than 4000 detainees were eventually arrested in order to avoid a match with last Saturday’s protests. Authorities are mobilizing to surround navani’s allies. The opponents were kept in prison, and they basically maintained the mobilization activities banned by the authorities.

Moscow this week lifted a series of restrictions related to the epidemic. Bars, clubs and restaurants have been allowed to reopen at night, and office telecommuting has been cancelled after claims of a decline in infection rates. However, mass rallies are still banned.

Navani, accused of violating the probation provisions of the 2014 sentence, poisoned Russian President Vladimir Putin and is currently in pre-trial detention until the end of the next trial, He was sentenced to more than three years’ imprisonment in a criminal colony.

Neither Western criticism of the arrest of the main opposition and the crackdown on protests, nor the EU high representative Josep Borrell’s scheduled visit next week, have prevented the Kremlin from adopting a tough policy. On Friday, Russia’s attorney general’s office ordered roskomnadzor, the state telecommunications regulator, to block calls for protests on the Internet in order to avoid visibility of demonstrations in support of navarni.

Russian authorities have been trying for days to get Facebook, twitter, instagram, tiktok and Russian social media to review information about mobilisation on the grounds that it lacks authorization and lures minors to participate. In a new attempt to prevent citizens – coupled with nawarni’s anger and social dissatisfaction with economic conditions and national inequality – from taking to the streets, Russia’s interior ministry has warned that participants in the demonstration may face criminal charges and a maximum sentence of eight years in prison.

Authorities have filed more than a dozen criminal charges against riots, traffic jams and other violations during Saturday’s protests, the largest in the past decade. In cities such as Moscow, video surveillance systems are mainly equipped with pointer face recognition systems, and authorities have ensured that they have studied the materials taken, including those on media and social media, to identify suspected infringers.

At the same time, the Kremlin is trying to quell navani’s anger over Russia’s president’s Black Sea millionaire palace investigation. Until recently, the main public television channel had been broadcasting a report on the mansion, claiming that it belonged to Putin and that it was a hotel. The video of Putin’s so-called palace has attracted 100 million visionaries.
