Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the arrest of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny:

"Vladimir Putin has once again thrown Alexei Navalny in jail because he is afraid of his own people - and what they would do if they were free. Every time he imprisons an opposition leader, it only shows the world just how corrupt and oppressive his regime truly is."
