Russian opposition leader said on Sunday he had been released from the detention centre where he had served a 20-day term for organising unauthorised protests.

"Hi. I'm out," Navalny wrote on Instagram, posting a picture of himself on a street. His release was arranged by police to evade crowds of journalists waiting outside the detention centre.
