US Secretary of State Pompeo 'deeply troubled' by Navalny arrest

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he was "deeply troubled by Russia's decision to arrest Aleksey Navalny," in a tweet on Sunday.
Pompeo went on to say that "
confident political leaders do not fear competing voices, nor see the need to commit violence against or wrongfully detain, political opponents."
Police detained prominent Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny on arrival at a Moscow airport on Sunday after he flew home to Russia from Germany for the first time since he was poisoned last summer.
