“Today at 7 am the police came to Lyubov Sobol’s apartment,” Navalny’s team tweeted Friday. “Since 7:10 Sobol has not been in touch, and the cameras in her apartment were sealed and turned off.”
Russia’s main investigative body, the Investigative Committee, confirmed it had launched a criminal probe against activist Sobol.
The committee claimed the probe was launched after Sobol allegedly threatened a member of the country’s Federal Security Service (FSB.)
On Monday, after the report was published, Sobol went to Kudryavtsev’s apartment to confront him.
According to a video Sobol posted on Twitter, the residential building was quickly surrounded by police and Sobol’s team was approached by a woman who introduced herself as Kudryavtsev’s mother.
Sobol was then take in for questioning but released early morning on Tuesday.
On Friday, police arrived at Sobol’s home, seizing all of the electronics belonging to the activist, her husband and her daughter, Navalny’s team said.
Ivan Zhdanov, head of Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Fund, wrote on Twitter that investigators launched a probe into trespassing “with the use of violence or a threat to use it” after Sobol rang the doorbell of the FSB agent.
Navalny fell ill on a plane to Moscow and was eventually taken to Germany for treatment. He ultimately survived the attempt on his life.
The anti-corruption activist has accused the Russian state of involvement in the poisoning.
The Kremlin denies any wrongdoing.
