Interfax: Alexei Navalny’s spokesman escapes from Russia to Helsinki

Spokesman for the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalnyi has left Russia for the Finnish capital Helsinki, says Interfax.

Kira Jarmusch was convicted of violating Covid rules and sentenced to house arrest in mid-August.

That would have meant that he would not have been able to leave the Moscow region if he had lost the pending complaint.

Jarmusch himself has not commented on the reports.

He follows another leading figure in the Navalny organization, Lyubov Sobol, who was also convicted of Covid violations in August, was sentenced to house arrest and later fled the country.
