Western politicians who are worried about the fate of Alexei Navalny, should better tackle problems in their own countries, said the representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova. She commented on the speech of Jake Sullivan, who is an advisor to US President-elect Joe Biden, RIA Novosti reports.

He, as well as some other Western politcians, publishing pre-prepared comments, should respect the observance of international law and refuse to encroach on the national legislation of sovereign states, the representative of the foreign ministry is sure.

Alexei Navalny was detained at the Moscow airport immediately upon his return from Germany on the eve of January 17. Until the court hearing, where a further preventive measure will be determined, he will remain in custody. The Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) previously called Navalny a malicious violator of the conditional sentence.

Navalny has two conditional convictions. The first, in the Kirovles case, concerns the embezzlement of more than 16 million rubles. The Yves Rocher case involves theft of over 30 million rubles.
