MOSCOW (Reuters) - The head of Russia's prison authority on Friday confirmed that opposition politician Alexei Navalny had been moved from Moscow to a detention centre where he would serve his just over 2-1/2 year sentence, the RIA news agency reported.
Alexander Kalashnikov, head of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN), did not specify where Navalny was being taken, RIA reported. It was not clear whether Navalny had arrived or was still on his way there.
Navalny's lawyer on Thursday said he had been moved to an undisclosed location.
