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.

"You try to give them enough oxygen that they stick around and hope that the lungs repair themselves over time nerve agents. So there are treatments for nerve agent, and actually soldiers usually have two things. They have a pre treatment and then they have a treatment. And so if you recall that the the mechanism of action of the nerve agent is to shutdown acids race. So the pre-treatment is this molecule called peruta stigma, bromide. So I took those dig name bromide during the first Gulf war. And it's a fact is essentially to be a bad nerve agent that is, it ties up your acetate Colin s race as well. It just doesn't do a perfect job of it. And as a result, when the nerve Asian comes along there, some acid is that it can't affect because it's already been affected by the pre-treatment and the. Pre-treated stuff can be regenerated because that pre-treatment wasn't so good. So if you like you poison yourself a little to protect yourself against the poison. That's a lot stronger soda to be clear. So when you're talking about the enzyme Australia's, there's going to be like a a pocket in that enzyme that would usually breakdown fetal choline so suitable immigrant in the pocket, and then a nerve agent would block that pocket. And your argument is those block. It does so in a way that it never comes out of the pocket, so it's permanently blocked. And so that's a full agonised. And so or antagonists, not the full antagonised at your pseudo colon ashtrays, and then you're pre-treatment here would be say a partial in tag? Yeah, that's good. Think about it. So it's it goes in and it makes the same connection to the enzyme that the nerve agent does. It's just that connection is reversible and so it's possible to regenerate activity with. A little bit of time. So you take this pre-treatment presumably when you know you're going into an area that's been contaminated or has the potential to be. So at least for the first Gulf war, there was a lot of concern that the Iraqi army was not only equipped with chemical weapons, but add the will and intend to use them. And so then there's also a post treatment right after exposure, what's that one? So that's a a little injector kit essentially. And it contains two things. There is a something that's designed to actually go after the modified Aseel Colin estimates and regenerated. So your body can't do that. But the two Pam chloride is the name of the molecule. It's an ox scene, which has a certain kind of chemical functionality again, and that ach seem is capable of breaking the bond between phosphorus and the acetylcholinesterase. So that should be. Regenerating your acetate as functionality at the same time. You also inject yourself with atropine and after pain, if you like, is a poison in the opposite direction of having all this acetylcholine running around but is not being broken down. So it basically gets in the way of where that neurotransmitter would go. So that's a very dangerous thing, right? You're basically trying to balance to poisons such that you're not convulsing to death, but at the same time you're still able to breathe and move your muscles at atropine would paralyze you typically while miss like poison. Darts point, poison, frogs create these kinds of compounds that shutdown response to neurotransmitters. So now you work on decontamination. Have to decontaminate from nerve agents is is one of your projects and you're working on something called metal, organic frameworks. That help sop up things like the nerve agent soman which is similar to Seren when I think about metal, organic frameworks, I think it sounds like scaffolding, but that can't be right. Can you talk about metal organic frameworks in what they're for? Sure. I would say you're exactly right. A metal organic framework is a three dimensional crystalline substance, and for those who have ever played with tinker toys, which I'm too old to know whether modern children by tinker toys or not. But if this was an old toy that consisted of sorta sticks and these hubs into which you could stick Stick's and the hubs would have many connection points so that you could have sticks going in various directions. So metal, organic framework like that. It has these hubs called nodes typically in the node, has some medals in it, maybe only one medal, but maybe a collection of medals that are joined together by oxygen that would be a little metal oxide cluster..
