Opposition to Vladimir Putin in Russia
Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny, who is currently recovering in Germany from a nerve-agent attack he blames on the Kremlin, said he plans to return to Moscow despite threats by the authorities to imprison him upon his arrival.
Navalny said in an Instagram video post Wednesday that he has a ticket to Moscow on Jan. 17.
Opinion appears to be divided on a number of issues concerning the gradual easing of restrictions on public movement and commercial activity. This difference of opinion is even seen among the experts, as the scientific community is still somewhat in the dark about the new coronavirus. Every decision, therefore, carries a risk.
