"And how are they shaping their defense? Will trump's to new lawyers are David shown, and Bruce Castor Jr And what they say in their filing is that the proceedings against Trump are unconstitutional because he is no longer in office. They say the Constitution requires that person be in office to be impeached and tried before the Senate and since Trump is clearly out of office. This trial, in their view is is moot. Now there is a legal debate on this point. Scholars do come down on both sides of the question. The House managers for their part in their case argued that this is indeed constitutional and that a president Has to be held accountable for his actions from the first day to the last day of his presidency. They say there is no January exception. But what maybe more pertinent here is that the constitutionality argument Seems like something that's registering with a lot of Senate Republicans since 45 of them voted last week that impeaching a former president was in their view. Unconstitutional. Yeah, that's politically pertinent, although of course there's also this president, where a former official was, in fact, put on trial before the Senate in in the past, so we know what the facts of the president Are there. How is the former president dealing with the big lie here? Everything that, he said, falsely for months leading up to the January 6 attack. His lawyers brought up his Trump's election fraud claims, But I wouldn't say that they focused on them. What they say is that when Trump publicly was challenging the election outcome that he is within his rights to do so that he was just expressing his opinion. They also argue that there's insufficient evidence to conclude that Trump's claims of fraud or false now his lawyers gloss over the fact that dozens of courts had rejected the Trump campaign's legal challenges to the vote instead. His lawyers spend their time in their brief denying allegations against their client. They deny that trump inside of the mob. They deny that he violated his oath of office, and they deny that he committed any sort of high crimes or misdemeanors. So what happens before the trial begins next week? Well, we expect a full trial brief from Trump's legal team by next Monday. And of course, we will keep an eye out to see whether any Republicans start to perhaps Waver on supporting Trump. And, of course, a bunch of Republicans would have to vote to convict for there to be a conviction. NPR justice correspondent Ryan Lucas. Thanks thank you. U. S officials expressed outrage when a Russian court ordered opposition leader Alexei Navalny to be sent to prison for more than two years. There's a debate, though, about what the U. S should or even can do. The Biden administration is reviewing its approach to Russia. Here's NPR's Michele Kelemen. At his first daily briefing at the State Department spokesperson, Ned Price made clear that he and his staff want to be on their toes, not on their heels. So they were quick with a statement calling on Russia to free Aleksei Navalny. We're going to look very carefully at the deteriorating human rights situation in Russia. What has happened with Mr Navalny specifically what has happened with the mass detentions of those who have bravely taken to the streets. In the aftermath of Mr Navalny's arrest, Navalny supporters have sent the Biden administration a list of Russian officials that they think should face sanctions. The Atlantic Council's Dan Freed, who used to work on sanctions policy at the State Department, says that's one place to begin. The fastest way to respond is to go after Individuals who were in Putin's corrupt circle or their Children who have gotten rich because their Children of members of Putin's corrupt inner circle and that would be appropriate Given that Navalny himself is an anti corruption activist Freed, says he thinks the Biden administration is sending the right signals so far. President Biden agreed with Russian President Vladimir Putin. To extend a key arms control agreement, but made clear that the U. S. Is looking into Russia's troubling behavior elsewhere that includes a cyber attack that experts believe was an espionage operation and reports that the Russians put bounties on U. S soldiers in Afghanistan. The Navalny case poses yet another early test, says freed they will want quite rightly to take a step back and think about Russia policy..

"In the Russian capital. Moscow has ordered the opposition activist Aleksei Navalny, to serve more than 2.5 years of a jail term for embezzlement. Mr. Navalny had earlier launched a blistering attack on President Putin. As our correspondent at the court, Sarah Rainsford reports he's being detained, repeatedly prosecuted several times at last year, Aleksei Navalny was poisons. Now the Russian opposition leader is going to jail. He greeted the news in court with a resigned shrug. That's not what I said earlier from a glass cage Alexander family had condemned this latest move against him as a show trial meant to scare millions of Russians, he said to crush dissent. He spoke like a man with nothing left to fear. After shooting death by poisoning. Last year, Mr Navalny mocked Russia's president, and claimed he'd given the order to have his rival killed. People will buy. Vladimir Putin wants to be known as a great world leader, Aleksei Navalny said. So he's upset that he'll now go down in history. As Vladimir the poisoner of the underpants, Mr Navalny believes a nerve agent was smeared in his underwear by Russian security service agents. Mr Putin has said the FSB had nothing to do with it.
Over 5,100 arrested at pro-Navalny protests across Russia

Down with his are they chanted in Russia's imperial capitals in Petersburg, the anger of today's revolutionaries not directed at the Winter Palace. But Putin's palace, the name given to the president's alleged unofficial residents in Alexey Navalny's YouTube video that's being watched now more than 100 million times. This weekend, One of Mr Putin's closest oligarch friends claimed that he owned the lavish black sea residents will. Mr Navalny is currently in pre trial detention two weeks after he was arrested on his return from Germany. We had been recovering from being poisoned by a nerve agent in Siberia today. His wife, Julia novel, there was among the hundreds who were arrested in the Russian capital. Moscow correspondent Sara Rainsford was also on the streets. So how was the day? It was pretty dramatic. I mean, Barricaded off. There were right place there from the early morning and a lot of shops and stuff have been closed as well. Toe to deter people from coming out. There were small groups all over the place. But suddenly, at one point they all converge near Theory, Leningrad train station and they began heading for the prison where Alexander Bonnie is being held on remand and the crowd. At one point there was a huge crowd swarming across the main road and the police At first, just letting them pass. But eventually, the right place. Reinforcements were sent in in very big numbers. So there were then swift detentions. Dozens. Hundreds of people here in Moscow detained some of them quite brutally being dragged face first towards police fans, mainly a younger crowd. Yeah, you know, itwas compared to last Saturday. I would say that there were predominantly younger people in the crowd this time, So it was a bit more diverse last time. One of the young I don't mean you know teenagers, which is something that the Kremlin and the authorities here accused the missing around the supporters of of bringing out young young people Minors under 18 onto the streets. No, there were students. There were people in their twenties people in their thirties and they were, you know, they were very vocal. They were prepared to shout in the face of the riot place to demand. Alexander van is release. But what was interesting, I think was that of the people I spoke to the vast majority told me that they weren't really big fans of Mr Navalny himself. They were there because they see him as a symbol off a political leadership, which refuses political competition. They see him as a symbol of democracy on as a symbol of choice. Yes, interesting. What you say about the young but not the very young or the old older people? Because are they? Perhaps reacting to what President Putin himself said he talked, I think about The leaders of the movement being terrorists who are using women and Children, Aziz Shields Missing, if only has traditionally had quite a big following amongst the people in their early twenties. He's got a lot of young supporters right across Russia, but I think you know the reason that people were younger today is probably because of the risk they were facing. I think some of the sort of older, more cautious people basically stayed away because Last Saturday. We saw a huge number of people detained more than 4000 people across Russia. It wasn't particularly violent, but people fear for the consequences of getting detained. So this time Slightly younger, perhaps more more prone to taking risks. Crowds there on the streets. But you know you have to bear in mind. What risk you face. If you protest in this country, it is basically illegal tow protest. Even one person pickets when you stand with a placard almost impossible to do these days, so people are facing not only short term police detentions, but often criminal cases, criminal charges.

"This weekend. Well. Mr Navalny, who survived the Kremlin assassination attempt last year, is an added corruption hero. His views, like those of many of his supporters are complex. They push for government transparency. They also hold some anti immigrant in ethno nationalist views joined now by Julia Davis, a Russian media and disinformation expert at the Atlantic Council. And columnist at the Daily Beast. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you so much for having me again. We have become familiar with the image of election navalny in recent days, Charismatic. Brave. But tell us where he has come from politically because there's a time he was very popular with Russia's ethno nationalists. He still has Ah, nationalist leanings, and no one could say that he is a perfect alignment with all of the Western values, But there again, that's not What he aims to represent. What he mainly represents, is the possibility that the Russians might be the ones to decide who gets to lead Russia. We'll tell us a little bit more about his track record, and if he's revised it in recent years things, he said about Chechnya and Crimea, for example. He supported the annexation of Crimea, Unfortunately, and he also does have some nationalist leanings. He is evolving in in many respects and One of things that so unique about him is that he refuses to fear. Putin. However, it's over the supporters in what's become a pro Navalny coalition. Home comfortable, are they with some of what Alexei Navalny represents in his nationalist views. I have seen some of them have a problem with it. Unfortunately, nationalist and racist rhetoric is very commonplace in Russia, so that hasn't been something that really stood in his way, and it's not dissimilar from A lot of issues that we're seeing was Trump supporters in the United States, the fear of immigrants and the fear of other people that are coming and supposedly taking. Our jobs, So it's similar in that way. When did he begin? Tonto become part of what we would now call the opposition. It went on for years, and he has been in opposition leader than Putin arrested him for alleged corruption, which is really a classic game off. What about his actions instead of addressing Putin's own corruption, and therefore putting was able to prevent Navalny from running for president, which has been his Long term ambition just by filing bogus criminal charges against him. Inputting is now in a no win situation if he kills navalny in the Prison. Then he becomes a martyr, and it would be impossible to deny who's responsible for that, And if Navalny's allowed to continue to function, he will continue to be a thorn and put inside what is election of only stand for, in addition to not being Vladimir Putin He positioned himself as first and foremost anti corruption activist who's determined to change the The system in Russia, where, unlike Putin system, where his cronies and fellow oligarchs are rubbing Russia blind to where it would have a government that is accountable to the people and the corruption and out of control, stealing would be stopped. How is Russian state media and the Kremlin presenting the protests or are they? They're really cracking down hard on them, and they're actually going so far as to charge the parents off the miners that participated in demonstrations charging their parents criminally. They're really going above and beyond, Because in this protest, there was something that was very uncharacteristic for Protest in Russia, You could see real defines. So they're desperately trying to portray the demonstrations as being very small, which, in fact there were Very large and the went across Russia, so they're just trying to portray the demonstrators as a small group of people that have been misled by Navalny and trying to quiet everything down that way. Julia Davis is a Russian media expert. Thanks so much for being with us. Thank you so much. God, it's my pleasure. Millions of students haven't been in real classroom surrounded by friends and chit chat for nearly a year. It may not only miss out on friends and teachers, but some of the essential services schools provide, including free and reduced lunch, an extra support for students with learning disabilities. And for many remote learning has been Very remote. Indeed, in our series we call learning curve. We've been trying to check in with parents, educators and students to try to understand how they're handling schooling during the pandemic. Bobbie Gary Jewish Children, is a bilingual school counselor at Frank, Quarter Gram Elementary School in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. She joins us now, thanks so much for being with us. Thank you for having me. I understand that you check in with students is a regular part of your efforts in in a classroom or one on one remotely. And you visited with some fifth graders this week. So what did they tell you? What do you notice? The kids are definitely missing school. They miss their friends. They missed the interactions that there were used to having. You know, on a daily basis, there's some students, of course that are living their best life. They're adjusting well, most, but most are terribly missing their friends and the structures of their day and Life as they knew it. And help us understand that from the students point of view, because, of course school is not just about Learning things in a classroom but learning things from each other. A lot of kids are, you know, starting to feel a sense of isolation, and that's saying a sense of hopelessness feeling like they don't have anything to look forward to. Like You said. You know, this is the age in elementary school where they get to really practice those human skills. Talking and listening and empathizing on observing even body language in other students, and not having that opportunity to do that definitely comes at a cost for them. I'm sure you're in excellent school counselor. But let me ask you this directly. Can you really have a good conversation with the student on zoom? Oh, my goodness. You know, I started the year trying to adapt to this virtual environment and oh, my goodness. It is so difficult because You can be engaging with a student and trying to connect at an intimate level, and then all of a sudden, you know, there's a lack of privacy. There's noise in the background. There's challenges with the connection itself. And then because they're so young, sometimes you know, I would set up a time with them to connect. And they just didn't show up because they forget or their parents lost the link. So as the months went by, what I started doing was actually you know, seeing the most urgent students outdoors and you? Of course, with all the precautions, I would go on hikes or Take walks in the park with them or sit away from each other at the park so that I can give them that opportunity to connect. But my own Children who are older and that up working in pretty high risk environments for Covitz, so I no longer felt confident. On being able to see kids in person and exposing them some now back to virtual, and it is hard. Well, and I'm going to guess. Tell me if I'm wrong that for a student who really fields isolated and that they're in trouble. Uh, it's gotta be hard to say over a zoom link. It is really hard to offer them help. And US a counselor. We walk into our practice with a high level of empathy. In order for us to really be able to assemble that net off support that the student needs on. So when you're behind that screen, and you're not able to really provide the supports that the student needs because off covert and because of that physical distance It's devastating, you know for a counselor because there are way too many variables that are beyond your control, so it is truly heartbreaking. What can parents who may be listening to to help their Children? Another Children? I think starting to have those conversations, you know, off course we have parents that have noticed that their kid's mental health is suffering and they're already reaching out to us. I would say, Do not delay if that's the case with your child..

Vlad tidings: demonstrations across Russia
"On saturday tens of thousands of russians took to the streets in more than a hundred towns and cities across the country. In support of jailed kremlin critic. Alexey navalny protesters chanted. Putin is a thief as well as freedom to navalny chilling videos emerged police beating and kicking demonstrators. The response was not one about an out brutality. More than three thousand arrests were made at. Even mr navalny's wife was briefly. Detained the demonstrations were sparked mr navalny's arrest on spurious charges. Just as soon as he returned from germany last week but protesters were also fired up by to our video narrated by mr navalny and released a day later. Throw it saw my viceroy was thirty. Wrestling depicts a lavish palace. On the black sea. Allegedly built for president vladimir putin and funded with dodgy. Money allegations the kremlin dismissed as just rumor mr putin remains in a tough spot with disquiet spreading and his loudest critic making just as much trouble while in jail as he did out of it. This was not my first protest in moscow in quite a few the past few years are cody. Trotsky is russia editor in moscow. I would say that. Fear was one of caution pretty much on both sides the fact that people have braved the streets brave. The police cordons came out. Despite enormous intimidation campaign was waged. By the kremlin in the preceding days is in itself extraordinary russia's much more repressive state today than it was even a few years ago. The people who were out in the street was certainly not radicals as abba in moscow protests. That was scary. Moments police charging but on the whole the police behavior some restraint and its actions were nowhere on the level of violence and brutality which we saw a few months ago in neighboring belarus. There was no special measures with no tear. Gas rubber bullets so it was definitely tense. But i didn't see many of the accesses and when we spoke to protesters what were they saying. Why were they out. The protesters came from the social strata and had different possibly political beliefs. What brought them out onto the street. Were few things. There was a sense of injustice over the arrest of alexei novel name who was arrested at possible control on the rival at airport and is now facing three and a half years in jail for breaking parole rules on a previous suspended sentence and the reason he broke his parole rules. That didn't comfortable to the police was just happened to be recovering from novichok nerve agent poisoning in germany. So people obvious that as an injustice the other big catalyst for the protest was the release of alexander violence extraordinary two hour long documentary film about allegedly putin secret palace in the black sea coast which was bill deem volumes cronies at a cost of one point three billion dollars. It's your absolutely archetypal. James bond villains had with all the trimmings and the golden toilet brushes that made a big impact. It clocked over eighty million views on youtube. An underlying over that was just general sense of tidiness of putin's regime tiredness of course lack of economic growth it was a very broad protests. And that's what made say interesting. You know lots of people came out for the first time. And so do you think that. That broad dissent a across demographics. On a lot of first-time protesters will will make any difference to to. What the kremlin actually does. It's not going to make any difference. In the short term the kremlin has already said. It's not going to pay attention. Admittedly fiscal putin spokesman said well. We think it was a very small protests. Many more people vote for vladimir putin. That was ironic. Given that alexander was barred from the election in which people voted for vladimir putin the reason the numbers were kept down walls because of enormous intimidation campaigns parents schoolchildren were told to keep their kids at home. Students were threatened with expulsion employs. The employees they'd risk dismissal if they would join the protest et cetera et cetera. The kremlin is not going to release alexei navalny overnight but only himself and he's associates of said. This is not an immediate process. This is a long haul to re coined the famous phrase by me. He'll gorbachev in the late eighties. The process started so. Do you think that the detention of of mr navalny and the release of this video and all of those us have really changed things. Is this a turning point. They do and this change effects vladimir putin's legitimacy which is already being Waning and we. We've seen that in in the raising figures. But this film and alexander. Violence return to russia is a massive blow to putin's legitimacy and to the attitudes and perceptions of putin in the broad russian public as one commentator set to me you know two years ago people had to explain why they oppose putin today they have to justify why they support him. And how has the international community responded to to this protest mood and these protests i think so far west leaders have been watching very carefully. What's happening in russia. has been rhetorical outrage. At least both from angela merkel Sees this as a slap in her face because nobody was in germany under her protection also been marketed. Different reaction from washington. I think we will see a very different response. From biden's administration compared to trump's acquiescence to putin's action has been called for tax sanctions including from poland. A you member states the foreign ministers to discuss next steps. But i think there is also worry amongst western countries and particularly among russian neighbors and countries like the baltic states and poland that events in russia will have repercussions outside russian borders and this north unfounded fears because in two thousand fourteen two years after big protests swept russia features berg and other big cities the kremlin annexed crimea and stuff the war in ukraine in order to change the narrative and dominate political agenda so lot of russia neighbors worried that repression at home and protests against the kremlin will lead to aggression.

"You live from our studios in central London. I'm Julian Marshall. We begin today in Russia, where the opposition leader Alexei Navalny is facing a possible lengthy prison sentence a day after his arrest stand detention upon returning from Germany. He was being treated there for a novel Choc nerve agent attack in Russia, which Mr Navalny with a good deal of evidence has blamed on the Russian state. Mr Navalny was wished away from the airport where the plane landed last night, not the airport, where it was scheduled to land and where a large crowd of his supporters have gathered. Police station A court convened there today has agreed to a police request to extend his detention prior to a trial, which might rule he served a suspended prison sentence. 3.5 years handed down in 2017. His arrest has been widely condemned by Western governments but defended by Russia. Speaking ahead of a hearing on the hearing at the police station. In a clip posted on social media, Mr Navalny accused President Putin of showing complete contempt for the law by detaining him. Which uses said anything consumers to the press with Violet. See, I don't understand why the hearing is being held at a police station. Why wasn't anyone informed? Why were there No. Summers are seeing a lot of mockery of justice. But the old man in the bunker is probably so afraid that they've obviously tourney up and bend the criminal procedure code. This is impossible. What's going on? Here is lawlessness off the highest grade the words off election Avandia and a short while ago I spoke to Vitaly Millen off from Mr Putin's United Russia party who's been a member of the Russian parliament since 2016. Why is the Russian government seem so nervous about election of Army? I suppose that it's more like impression created by Nirvana himself. Of course, I assumed that Mr Navalny represents himself as the main leader of the Russian off positions, which is not true, because a number of his supporters is not the tremendous it's quite weak. Of course, he's not dangerous for the Russian state. Told because he wore he was able to participate in different type of elections, even in the mayor elections in Moscow, So I think that he is not someone that board us Russian authorities. One of the same time the Russian authorities describe Mr Navalny as in a relevant blogger, and then you whisk him off a plane which didn't land where it was meant to. You take him off to a police station. On So the trial as finished a couple of years ago. It's for reserve. Remember, it was assumed that he should stay in a special conditions. He cannot believe country for a long time. And he should visit occasionally. Special officer like everywhere in the world. He decided not to do this. Sorry. Hang on a minute, Mr Milner if he didn't decide not to observe his parole conditions, he was poisoned. With a deadly nerve agent. He then had to be flown out of the country where he's been suffering from a coma and trying to recover from that poisoning. This was not a choice on his part, as far as I remember Russian side God, no witness from the West. So with the same way we can tell that you've been captured by Spiderman, no evidence and no results. No tests from the laboratories in the present to Russian state. Saying that he had been poisoned by this Western world known poison nor the chuck. So he stayed as a guest off. I'm gonna model for quite a long period of time, and he had been recovered. You know, in a week after he's being transported from Russia recovered, recovered from what? Because you you say he wasn't but wasn't poisoned off course. I know a lot of diseases and lots of education's want personal individual needs to be recovered, he declared himself. Is an individual being poisoned, Injured assassinated? I I don't know what and he felt himself quite good already within a few days, so why he ignored his abilities to show up in the police office? I don't know. So that's been universal neg, universal condemnation of his arrest Western countries, the European Union, the United States, they are clearly all these countries extremely troubled. What has happened to Mr Navalny onboard. Usha doesn't care what the rest of the world thinks. That is. That's right, isn't it? Western countries? They do not care about the position of Russian side concerning those who have bean captured, increasing or held in prison in the United States, For example, European Union imprisoned lots of people from parts of Spain that called themselves Catalans know and you've got even Russian people in America being I should like, make their boot already for more than 10 years in prison without any real evidence of his being guilty, So it's first. I remember. We do not push American or British officials to change their mind because we respect sovereignity of different countries. Was bitterly Milan off from Mr Putin's United Russia party with the rest off Alexei Navalny upon his return to Russia is big news in the Western media that has of being reported in Russia. Itself where much of the media with State controlled Vitaly Shevchenko is Russia editor BBC monitoring bitterly. First of all, bring us up to date on that? Hearing in a police station in Russia, which is extended Mr Navalny's period in detention. Yes. Within the past 20 minutes. A judge of this Extraordinary hearing at the police station as sanctioned election of unease. Arrest for another 30 days. That is until the 15th off. February Now what happens next on the 29th of January, another court hearing will decide Whether his suspended 3.5 year prison term will become a real one. Now the the penal service in Russia says that he violated the terms of his suspended sentence. Therefore, he must go to jail. Am seeing reports that Mr Navalny is urging people to take to the streets. Does he still command that much support that that request will be obeyed? Well, past experience shows than that. When election of irony makes those sorts of calls, people tend to listen. He is a very powerful force on social media. It's not Ford's that is to be underestimated. His investigations into official corruption. They get read by tens and of millions of people and therefore Even though he may not be president Television, there's almost nothing about what's going on around the violently on television this morning. On social media. He's all over Twitter, for example, Freedom to know finally is the top trending top trend today. So therefore, the Kremlin has every reason to be concerned about about what happens next. So you're suggesting that the arrest off Alexei Navalny could could backfire for the Russian state? Oh, yes, he's returned to Russia puts the Kremlin a really difficult position because on the one hand they cannot allow him to continue his political activities because that would be seen as a as a concession to the violence on the part of Putin, and that is something that put in is really afraid off. And on the other hand, if they send him to jail, all sorts of legal questions are going to be asked on. Therefore what happens next is going to be really interesting. Vitaly many, thanks to that. That was a little A Shevchenko, Russia editor. At BBC monitoring well among those European countries, which of condemned the arrest of Alexei Navalny is the Czech Republic. Although the Czech president has strongly pro Russian, the government is not The Foreign Minister Thomas Petrie check has described the arrest as politically motivated. I put to him Russia's accusation that this wave of Western condemnation was an attempt by governments. To distract people's attention from problems at home.

"The Russian opposition politician, Aleksei Navalny, has accused the Russian authorities of being behind his poisoning. In his first video interview since he was released from hospital in Germany. German doctors who treated Mr Navalny say he was poisoned with a nerve agent Nav it shock He fell ill on a flight from the Russian city of Tomsk to Moscow, and he described the experience during his interview with the popular Russian blogger, Yuri Dude, how loudly I was dripping in cold sweat. It's a very strange feeling. Several people have asked me what it's like to almost die from Novi Chuck. It's difficult to explain, because it's something that you don't experience in everyday life. There are some things that you haven't experienced. Thank God like having a heart attack or your leg chopped off with a chainsaw. But in general, you can imagine what it would be like to have your head cut off with a chainsaw Here. You're in a cold sweat. You feel really l left Tombstone Lucid. So how did mr Navalny look on DH sound? Steve Rosenberg is the BBC's Moscow correspondent. He sounded like normal. Really. I mean, considering what he's gone through the poisoning by novice shock the coma. Clearly his health is improving. Although he says his hands still shake. He's undergoing physical therapy in Germany and possibly another two months of that. To come. But he was clear He was lucid and he really painted. I think a fascinating and at times terrifying picture of what it's like actually to be poisoned by Na'vi Chock you remember he was flying. From Siberia to Moscow back in August, when he fell ill, and in this interview, he talked about coming out in a cold sweat on instead of feeling pain, he said he was basically consumed by this. Feeling this growing feeling that he was going to die as if his body was just telling him. This is the end, And he said that that was worse than pain, Of course. Then the plane made an emergency landing. In the Siberian city of Omsk. And he was hospitalized there. And in the interview, he says that he believes the Russian authorities delayed his medical evacuation to Germany. In order that the traces of knobby chalk in his body would disappear by the time he arrived in Germany that he claims in the interview, so it was a very interesting Picture of events he painted, and as for his return to Russia, did he have anything to say on that? What he said in recent days and weeks? Actually, that he has every intention off returning to Russia. Certainly his colleagues his friends. Supporters believed that the Kremlin would prefer it if you remained outside the country didn't return, but he has made it very clear. That his intention is to come back and to continue his activities. He's Russia's most prominent opposition activists, and he clearly gets under the skin off the Russian authorities on the Kremlin.
