Women Line Moscow's Arbat Street for Pro-Navalny Protest

Hundreds of women formed a human chain in Moscow on February 14 in support of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny’s wife Yulia and other Russian women in politics, according to The Moscow Times.

The demonstration followed a crackdown on pro-Navalny protests across the country. Navalny was sentenced on February 2 to more than three years in prison on a charge of violating his probation while recuperating in Germany following his poisoning, TASS reported.
