Reason of the protest
44-year-old Alexei Navalny is the man running the anti-corruption movement. He tried to contest the presidential election in 2018. But he was convicted on one charge and barred from contesting elections. He was undergoing treatment in Germany since Novichok poisoned on 20 August last year.
Returning there, he was taken into custody by the police as soon as he landed at Moscow Airport on 17 January. Earlier, he released some videos. They accused Putin of possessing a royal palace, which also housed a casino with luxury items. At the same time, he is openly looting government treasury on women.

History of Poison: The chemistry made in the fourth generation program is 60 years old.
Novichok was built in the 1960s to 1970s. It was created through Follant, a program to develop Russia’s fourth-generation chemical poison. The world did not know about this nerve agent before 1990. Russian scientist Dr. Will Mirzanov has told about it in his book State Secrets.
