A spokeswoman says Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny is in satisfactory condition after being hospitalized for a severe allergy attack while in jail.

Navalny was taken to a hospital Sunday morning from the Moscow detention facility where he is serving a 30-day sentence for calling an unsanctioned protest against the exclusion from the ballot of independent Moscow City Council candidates.

His spokeswoman, Kira Yarmysh had said Navalny did not have a history of allergies and arrived at the hospital with severe facial swelling and red skin rashes.

Yarmysh said he was in “satisfactory condition” on Sunday afternoon.

Navalny ally Leonid Volkov tweeted on Sunday about what he described as “anti-sanitary conditions” at the jail.
