Russian journalist who covered Navalny trial arrested on extremism charges – POLITICO

Favorskaya, a correspondent for independent channel Sotavision, was arrested for the second time on Wednesday after serving a 10-day administrative sentence in the Moscow region for disobeying police orders, Sotavision said in an article on Telegram.

She had also extensively covered Navalny’s funeral in Moscow before being arrested in a cafe based on an anonymous tip, the Moscow Times reported. Colleagues of Favorskaya were also arrested; the charges against these individuals remain unclear, the newspaper said.

Prosecutors say Favorskaya posted materials banned in Russia on social media, AFP reported. In court Friday, she said it was retaliation for an article she wrote about how Navalny was “tortured” in prison, according to the report.

Navalny’s team condemned the case and said the Russian regime was trying to create a “new wave of fear” among its critics.
