The FSIN said it would be "obliged to taken all actions to detain" the opposition leader, adding that it had already asked a Moscow court to turn a suspended sentence into jail time.
The FSIN claims that Navalny breached probation terms on six occasions by failing to register with authorities last year as part of a 2014 suspended prison sentence.
Navalny, one of Vladimir Putin's main rivals, has been recovering in Germany following his poisoning with a nerve agent in August 2020. Alexei fell ill while aboard a domestic Russian flight from Siberia to Moscow and was later flown to Berlin for treatment. Navalny claims he was poisoned under Putin's orders, which the Kremlin has denied.
It is worth noting that Navalny's homecoming is scheduled for January 17.
As we reported earlier, Alexei Navalny has been declared federally wanted in the Russian Federation.
The published documents show that Navalny has been on the federal wanted list since December 29, 2020.
“Apparently, the New Year’s holidays affected it in some way, and somehow they forgot to make it public (even his own lawyers). However, according to documents, the case was opened on November 27. The documents state that Navalny was not mentioned in the Yves Rocher case (he was put on probation) and ignored the control. At the same time, he informed the Federal Penitentiary Service only once - on November 23 (and came to his senses on September 10), saying that he was in rehab and would not say anything about his return," the statement said.
