More than 5000 people have been detained in Russia as a wave of anti-government, anti-Vladimir Putin protests sweep across the country. The protests are in support of opposition figure Alexei Navalny who returned to the country after recovering from being poisoned with the neuro-toxin Novichok. Navalny, his supporters and governments around the world have pointed the finger at Russian security forces for the attempt on his life. Nathan Rarere spoke with our Moscow correspondent Stuart Smith.
