Russia wants Navalny ally arrested abroad; Lithuania refuses

FILE – This file photo released by Leonid Volkov’s Twitter account on Sunday, Jan. 17, 2021, shows Russian opposition activist Alexei Navalny with his wife, Yulia, and friends in Germany before he returned to Moscow. Navalny flew back to Russia on Jan. 17 after recovering in Germany from a poisoning with a nerve agent that he blames on Russian authorities. A Moscow court on Wednesday, Feb. 10, ordered the arrest of Volkov, a Navalny ally who lives in Lithuania, but the government in Vilnius has rejected the demand.
