Russian opposition leader Navalny freed after Moscow raid - spokeswoman

MOSCOW, Dec 26 (Reuters) - Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny was freed on Thursday after being briefly detained during a raid on the headquarters of his Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) in Moscow, his spokeswoman told Reuters.

The raid occurred a day after Navalny said that the forcible military conscription of one of his allies to a remote air base in the Arctic amounted to kidnapping and illegal imprisonment. (Reporting by Maria Vesilyeva; Writing by Anastasia Teterevleva Editing by Andrew Osborn)
