Navalny network added to Russian extremist list

Russia yesterday added Alexei Navalny's political network to its database of terrorist and extremist organisations, as Moscow moves closer to shutting down the jailed opposition politician's movement against President Vladimir Putin.  The network appeared on a list maintained by Russia's financial monitoring service. The network of Navalny's regional offices had disbanded Thursday in anticipation of the move. Organisations on the list include the Islamic State group and al-Qaeda. The groups are banned in Russia, with members and supporters facing lengthy jail terms.  Navalny, 44, was arrested in January on his return to Russia from Germany, where he spent months recovering from a poisoning attack he says was orchestrated by Putin. The Kremlin denies the claim.
