Navalny’s wife, Yulia Navalnaya arrested in Protests. Link to her Instagram with picture of arrest in comments : worldnews


It was an image that crystallized last weekend's news. Yulia Navalnaya, the tall, blonde 44-year-old woman of Russia's most prominent opposition leader, hugs her husband at border control in a moment of cruelty and tenderness. The two had come home and understood the risks of returning to the lair of unsuccessful assassins – and the likelihood of a prolonged separation.

To describe the chapters of the couple's last five months as Shakespeare risks the genre being undercut. To recap, first came the attack by a military-grade nerve agent. Then the luck of a quick-thinking pilot and first aider. The agonizing days of local bureaucrat veiling. The drama of evacuation and the miracle of recovery. An investigation and a phone call incriminated Kremlin agents.

For many, however, it was exactly that, a "Romeo and Juliet" repeated. Yulia Navalnaya's passionate defense of her husband every step of the way – from addressing lying chief doctors to the siege of Vladimir Putin to facilitate the evacuation of her husband – drew the emotions of many compatriots in ways they have not been before . Her normally hard-shelled spouse was the first among them. "Love heals and brings them back to life," wrote Aleksey in a post-recovery ode. "Yulia, you saved me and made her write that in the neuroscience textbooks."

To make handprints, the artists would have had to place their hands on a surface then spit pigment over it, and the team are hoping to try to extract DNA samples from residual saliva.

that is one, long pig, in the first picture..delicious..it makes me feel safe to know that authorities, 45,500 years after the crime was committed, are still committed to identifying the parties responsible for this act and holding them accountable.
