Russian opposition leader Aleksei Navalny said a hearing he faced at a police station on January 18 was a mockery of justice and called for street protests, as Western leaders demanded his release. Navalny was detained the previous evening at a Moscow airport after returning from Germany. He was being treated in Berlin after being nearly killed with a military-grade poison in an attack that an investigation showed was carried out by Russian security service officers.
