Hundreds of Moscow drivers honk the horns in support of Navalny protest

Hundreds of drivers honked their horns in support of protesters who gathered today (January 23) in Moscow calling for the release of opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

Footage showed the demonstrators chanting "Putin is a thief" on Tverskaya Street, close to Pushkinskaya metro station.

Many passing cars could be heard honking their horns in support.

Navalny, who survived a near-fatal nerve agent attack last August, was detained soon after his plane landed in Moscow last Sunday.
