Navalny ally plays piano as police raid her house

Anastasia Vasilyeva, a personal medic of Navalny, played the piano while the Russian police were at her house in Moscow.

The raids come after tens of thousands of Navalny's supporters took to the streets on Saturday (January 23) to call on the Kremlin to release him from jail where he is serving a 30-day stint for alleged parole violations that he denies.

Police had said the protests were illegal and detained close to 4,000 people. More than a dozen criminal cases have been opened.

Navalny's allies plan to hold another rally this Sunday (January 31).
