"Lyudmila Ivanovna is still in Salekhard. The funeral is still pending. We do not know if the authorities will interfere to carry it out as the family wants and as Alexey deserves. We will inform you as soon as there is news."

"Give us the body of my husband," she said. "You tortured him alive, and now you keep torturing him dead. You mock the remains of the dead."

Saturday marks nine days since the opposition leader's death " the day on which Orthodox Christians traditionally hold a memorial service.

People across Russia came out to mark the occasion and honour Navalny's memory by gathering at Orthodox churches, leaving flowers at public monuments, or holding one-person protests.

The authorities have detained scores of people as they seek to suppress any major outpouring of sympathy for Putin's fiercest foe."
