POISONED KREMLIN CRITIC ALEXEI NAVALNY OUT OF COMA AND RESPONSIVE: GERMAN HOSPITAL Navalnys spokeswoman Kira Yarmysh and fellow team member Georgi Alburov front the Tatarstan film, and said they were followed and harassed while shooting by men who blocked their paths with quad bikes or lurked nearby. Some dramatic images along those lines appear in the film.Yarmysh talks about how Tatarstan was supposed to be one of Navalnys stops on his late summer swing through Russian regions ahead of elections.
