alexei navalnyReuters reported that Alexei Navalny may face house arrest if Russian investigators’ petition is approved by a court. Navalny was recently released from prison after being imprisoned for graft and corruption, charges he claims were trumped up by Putin.

The reason behind the request for a house arrest was that investigators claimed Navalny left the country when he was not supposed to.
